A well-bred Cocker Spaniel is a pleasure to own. He is known for a merry, sound temperament.
His flowing coat is silky, flat or wavy, has a sturdy, compact body, and is loving and gentle, and he wants nothing more than to make his family happy.
Compared to other dogs in the Sporting Group, the Cocker is small (20 to 30 pounds), fitting comfortably into an apartment, condo, or a small home.
He is primarily a companion but is easily trained for the conformation show ring, obedience and agility competitions, and field work. He is also an excellent therapy dog.
