Cocker Spaniels make excellent playmates for children and are easy to teach as both friends and athletes. They're big enough to be sporty, but not too huge to be bulky. A full-coated Cocker compensates extra grooming time by becoming the most beautiful dog on the street. Playtime and quick walks are two of these lively sporting canines' favorite pastimes.
Satisfying you and making you happy is that makes them feel the happiest. They're as at peace snuggling on the couch with their favorite people as they are romping in the yard with the kids. The Cocker is a highly trainable and very adaptable, whether you live in an apartment or a large home with a back yard.
Cocker Spaniel coats occur in a variety of colors, including black, liver, red, and golden in solids. Also, black and tan, and sometimes liver and tan are known, as well as a variety of color mixtures of those solid colors including roans, roan and tans, tricolors, and those solid colors with additional white markings.
