English Cocker Spaniel - General Information

Weight: male: 28-34, female: 26-32 lbs

Height: male: 15-17, female: 14-16 inches

Color(s): solid black, liver or red or parti-color combinations of white with black, liver or red markings or ticking

Character: The English Cocker Spaniel is intelligent, lively, gentle, affectionate, and easygoing.
Temperament: This dog gets along very well with other dogs, family pets, and children.

Care: Regular grooming with a brush and comb is required, as the coat is prone to tangles. Special attention should be paid to the hair on the legs and ears. It may be necessary to take the dog to a grooming professional two - four times a year to have excess hair trimmed or plucked. The ears should be cleaned regularly.

Training: This breed is naturally willing to learn and quickly understands what is expected of it. A great deal of understanding and consistency during training is necessary as it may try to take over your role.

Activity: Three walks a day are usually enough to keep them happy, but they also need to have regular opportunities to run freely in the countryside. Most really enjoy swimming.
