English Cocker Spaniel

An old land spaniel used to flush and retrieve game in dense cover,the English Cocker Spaniel is a merry, affectionate dog whose tail rarely stops wagging. Faithful and engaging, the English Cocker is an excellent family companion due to his even temperament and trainability. Though adaptable to different living situations, the breed requires daily exercise. His silky coat needs frequent brushing and stripping or clipping.
