Like the American Cocker Spaniel, the English Cocker Spaniel is sensitive. Handled with tenderness and respect, he makes a willing learner. English Cockers are joyful, entertaining, and active friends to all people.
The English Cocker Spaniel is intelligent, lively, gentle, affectionate, and easygoing.
Does your English Cocker Spaniel bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety
is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
This dog gets along very well with other dogs, family pets, and children.
Regular grooming with a brush and comb is required, as the coat is prone to tangles. Special attention should be paid to the hair on the legs and ears. It may be necessary to take the dog to a grooming professional two - four times a year to have excess hair trimmed or plucked. The ears should be cleaned regularly.
If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet

This breed is naturally willing to learn and quickly understands what is expected of it. A great deal of understanding and consistency during training is necessary as it may try to take over your role. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay
is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new English Cocker Spaniel puppy.
Consider crate training
if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Three walks a day are usually enough to keep them happy, but they also need to have regular opportunities to run freely in the countryside. Most really enjoy swimming. Socialization
is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.
