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.
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.
Medium-length, silky and smooth. It should not be curly. The most common colors are liver roan (with or without tan markings), orange roan, blue roan, liver patches (with or without tan markings), black, black and tan, white with black, red, russet brown, or liver.
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.
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.

My English Cocker has a very bad skin condition. We cannot find anything he is allergic to. Antibiotics help the condition. Does anyone else have this issue ?



If it is not food based allergies, I would suggest a medicated bath. One of my dogs was having really bad skin issues where he was losing his fur and his skin was dry, flaky, red and itchy. Changing his food didn't work, nor did antibiotics. But, low and behold - Head and Shoulders Shampoo for Dry Scalp did the trick in two baths in one week. Now that is all I use on all my dogs and their coat and skin have never had a problem again.


I have an English Cocker and when we bought her there were skin issues from the start. She was itching all the time and she was losing her fur. After many trips to the vet, we went to a specialist and she immediately diagnosed her with a parasite. Even though the regular vet already said it was not a parasite we did what the specialist said to do. Change the flea treatment to one called "Revolution" which included the medicine to kill the parasites. In three weeks, she was back to normal and her hair was growing back and no more itching. It took the specialist seeing her in person to figure out what was wrong. We no longer use Revolution but went back to a regular flea treatment.


Proper diet can solve a world of issues. Food sensitivities can cause skin issues. Before using harsh chemicals I try natural remedies such as Coconut oil or essential oils.


Our Lab has that same problem. We purchased Anit Bacterial tablets from the vet, then after a skin swab it fixed the problem. We changed foods, medicated baths, added salmon oil in the food, probiotics, lime dip wash, etc. Nothing worked our Lab was so misserable, but the tablets worked great. After 5 days we saw a huge difference through the 21 day course.


I had a cocker who always scratched and lost the fur on his belly. It turned out he had low thyroid.


You are to be commended for your honesty... because every time someone tells me to replace mine, I can tell them this is what to expect in a good year! And not California dollars, if you can even find a breeder here.


I put my dogs on a homemade diet, which ended all the skin issues. I use a good balance of meat, eggs, organs, ancient grains, veggies, and fats. Their fur and skin is soft as silk! A bit more money to do it, and I make a huge 8 day batch at a time to make it less time consuming. I feel so good giving my pups this fresh homemade food and seeing them, now 9 years old, in perfect health makes it all worth while!

Anonymous asked:
My English Cocker (rescue) will not eat meat or anything with meat in it. Is this common for the English Cocker to be a natural Vegetarian?

1 Comment


No, this is not common at all. Dogs are carnivores and unless there is a serious allergy to animal protein, a dog should love meat. I would be concerned for my dogs health and would follow up with a vet visit to find a solution as to what food I could feed my dog. Essential vitamins and minerals that come from muscle meat, ground bone, cartilage and organs are needed for your dog to be healthy and so you may have to give your dogs supplements to keep him healthy.

Anonymous asked:
What are the different ways of grooming an English Cocker Spaniel?



You can either learn to groom the dog yourself, in which you would have to take 10 - 15 minutes every day to do. Or have your dog professionally groomed every 2 weeks, but you would still need to brush your dog every day to keep the coat looking its best. But, you can also get them clipped in which you would not have to brush the dog every day, but once a week would be sufficient.


The English Cocker Club of America has a wonderful site. It has a downloadable pdf on the show cut or the pet cut. Learning the pet trim is relatively easy with the guide provided there.

Are Engislh Cocker Spaniels good with small kids?

The English Cocker Spaniel is a good family dog, but please be wary. They can be sensitive about their ears and children love to pull on dog's ears. Although every dog is different, it is very important to understand your dog and know what he does and does not tolerate as well as teach your children to handle the dog correctly. All interactions between dogs and children should be supervised.

Since I brought him home, he ate the 1st night and then he vomited at night...Since then he didn't eat anything, just drank water and slept. So I took him to a vet and every day I need to take him twice. They give him some injections and saline water. Is it normal for the puppy to not eat anything in this period? What would be the best meal to feed the puppy?



Is it not the case that the pup is too young to have left the mother at 1-month-old? That may be why a trouble.


A 1-month-old the pup would be barely weaned and should still be fed soft food or food mixed with kibble. Please supplement with canned goat milk.
