Dog Breed of the Day: The English Cocker Spaniel

English_Cocker_Spaniel_17

From Dog Breed Info: The English Cocker Spaniel is an intelligent, sturdy and robust dog. Lively, perky and lovable, pleasant, gentle, playful and affectionate, they are excellent with children. They are average barkers, and are willing and happy to listen to their owners. A superior companion dog. Generally an outgoing breed, taking to strangers easily, some individuals can be reserved without enough socialization. This breed can do well with family cats. There are two types, field lines and show lines (bench). Field types are bred for hunting and field trial work. The bench type is bred for conformation shows. Both types are energetic and need daily exercise, but field lines have a higher energy level, and need even more exercise. The dominancy level in this breed varies widely even within the same litter.

Personally I owned an adorable cocker spaniel who happened to be a little too energetic for the family.   He wound up biting our neighbor’s dog and unfortunately we had to give Jake away.   However, from what I remember he was one of the cutest dogs I had ever seen.   I hope Jake is doing alright these days though it was over 20 years ago when we had him.   If you have a cocker spaniel share your story.  Otherwise enjoy this awesome gallery of English Cocker Spaniel puppies and marvel at their beauty.
