The Cocker Spaniel (American) dates back as far as the 14th century as a “Spanyell.” There are land and water spaniels and he’s the smallest spaniel. The Cocker Spaniel has existed in America since the 1880s and is an excellent hunting dog, covering ground rapidly and flushing out the game. He will only retrieve on command.
He’s one of the most popular breeds and is a happy, well-balanced dog. His colour can be any colour or black with tan points or parti-coloured. He loves people and is very gentle around them. He’s an intelligent dog who learns easily. He needs to have regular brushing and to be trimmed 3-4 times a year to stop his coat getting matted. He stands at 13.5 – 15.5 inches tall
