Things to know about Cocker Spaniel
The Cocker Spaniel is a small, compact dog with a long, wavy coat that comes in liver, chocolate and black. The breed is known for its gentle temperament and love of human companionship.
If you’ve never owned a Cocker Spaniel before, here are few things you should know about the breed.
The Cocker Spaniel has a reputation as an excellent family dog and companion animal. While they are usually very friendly around people they don’t know, they can be wary of strangers. They do not like to be left alone for long periods of time because they become bored easily. They are very affectionate toward their owners but may not be so toward other family members or pets unless they have been raised together since birth.
Cocker Spaniels are intelligent dogs that enjoy learning new things and training sessions will help keep them out of trouble when left alone for long periods of time. They have a tendency to bark when excited or anxious so training them not to bark excessively is important if you live in an apartment or condo complex where barking annoys neighbors or disturbs their sleep at night.
Cockers make great watchdogs because they bark when they sense something wrong or when strangers come around the house. This trait can be problematic if you live in an apartment building or neighborhood where it’s important to keep quiet at all times.
Cocker Spaniels are active dogs who need daily exercise to stay healthy and happy — at least 30 minutes every day by walking or playing fetch in the yard or park. Some Cockers enjoy romping through tall grasses, so make sure your backyard is free of poisonous plants like lilies and irises that could harm your dog if he eats them by mistake!
The breed is generally good with children, but can be shy around strangers until they get used to them. Cocker Spaniels are also protective of their families and may bark at strangers who come into the house unannounced.
The Cocker Spaniel’s coat requires daily brushing to prevent matting and tangles from forming on their long coats. Regular brushing will also help keep your Cocker Spaniel’s coat looking shiny and healthy!
Cocker Spaniels breeders are known for their lively personalities and their ability to learn tricks quickly. They are also known to be very affectionate dogs and will make excellent companions for someone who wants a dog that is both entertaining and easy to train.
Cockers are not typically aggressive dogs, but they can be strong-willed and stubborn at times. This means that training them takes a consistent approach that involves positive reinforcement and plenty of treats!
