English Cocker Spaniel Canada
The English Cocker Spaniel is the original Cocker Spaniel and was developed in Wales and southwest England as a gundog.
The English Cocker Spaniel is compact but bigger than the American Cocker Spaniel. He stands up to 17 inches high at the shoulder and has a long, silky coat. It can be black, red, liver, golden, black and tan, and tri-colour or roan. The English Cocker's coat sheds and requires regular brushing and trimming.
The English Cocker is a sporting breed and a popular pet. He is energetic, playful, affectionate, and eager to please in nature. He enjoys family life, and his size allows him to fit in most home environments. Of a happy disposition, this dog doesn't just wag his tail - he wags his body! Consistent and understanding training will yield the best results as he is a naturally willing and intelligent dog.
As an active and energetic sporting dog, the English Cocker Spaniel needs regular exercise to combat a tendency to gain weight. He should have a home with a fenced yard and an owner who is patient and will not spoil him.
