“The English Cocker Spaniel is a tail dog”
Character of English Cocker Spaniels
The English Cocker Spaniel is a companion dog, a hunting dog with a very good temperament. English Cocker Spaniels are very hardy, friendly, active. They fit well in almost any family.
Breeder’s Observations: Parting with the owner of the English Cocker Spaniels is very difficult to endure, and they are terribly worried if they are closed somewhere, isolated from society. In this case, the dog will yearn, howl, bite everything. Yes, they get used to it if the owner leaves for work, but, ideally, the person should always be next to the cocker spaniel.
The English Cocker Spaniel gets along well with children and other animals.
Sometimes in the breed due to improper breeding or upbringing, aggression can occur, but breeders make every effort to eradicate it. Also, a cocker spaniel can be aggressive if it has been taught to play incorrectly, for example, allowed to bite. We always tell the future owner that the puppy plays with toys, and not with human hands or feet.
English Cocker Spaniels are very positive. This is a ponytail dog. If you go to the kitchen, then she goes to the kitchen, you go to the hall – she goes to the hall. And he will be waiting for you at the door to the toilet.
I can’t say that the English Cocker Spaniel is a dog of one owner. He will listen to other people.
Breeder’s Observations: Sometimes there are English cocker spaniels who cannot be forced to do something, but if you politely ask, the dog will gladly fulfill your request.
The English Cocker Spaniel is an aristocratic dog that, with its proud appearance, can amaze everyone and everyone. Especially if this is a dog, imposingly lying on the couch, with well-groomed, flowing hair. Resisting their beauty is very difficult.
The English Cocker Spaniel is very fond of good long walks. They love swimming, running, aporting, training.
Education and training of the English Cocker Spaniel
The English cocker spaniels in the blood laid to do what the owner wants. They always try to please and please a person.
Breeder’s Observations: The English Cocker Spaniel is well motivated for aport and food, and just for thanks from the owner. This is a very intelligent dog that understands a lot of things.
The English Cocker Spaniel can still be a great hunter, but they also show themselves excellently in the service. We buy puppies for search work.
English Cocker Spaniel Care
The English Cocker Spaniel can live only in a house or in an apartment, but not in the street or in an aviary.
Breeder’s recommendation: Caring for an English Cocker Spaniel is not easy. This dog needs grooming at least once every 2 months, it needs to be washed and combed regularly. It is advisable to use good professional cosmetics.
It is extremely undesirable for the English Cocker Spaniel to shave baldly, as this “breaks” thermoregulation. If the dog is bald, and on the street +30 degrees, many people think that the dog is well. In fact, in this case, the English Cocker Spaniel will suffer even more from the heat. The coat protects these dogs from the scorching sun.
So only breed grooming is welcome. The exception is older dogs; a shorter haircut is acceptable for them.
Breeder’s recommendation: The English-Cocker Spaniels tolerate cold well, but if there is snow, and then the temperature rises to a slight plus, we put them on for a walk. Otherwise, snow sticks to the coat, forming a large lump. In other cases, they do not need clothes.
However, caps for the ears do not interfere, so that the dog does not sweep the street with them.
If you do not neglect the right regular grooming, then the English Cocker Spaniel practically does not fade. In any case, their soft, long hair is very easy to clean.
Bitches are more clean than males. We have a girl who in rainy weather may refuse to go for a long walk, and males happily walk in any weather.
As for toilet training, it all depends on the dog itself, but, as a rule, English cocker spaniels have no problems with this. If a person makes some effort, it is quite simple.
English Cocker Spaniel Health
English cocker spaniels have allergies and skin diseases. But if the dog is properly fed and properly cared for, the dog will be healthy. The same applies to problems with the ears – with proper care they are not.
Breeder’s observations: The first year of the dog’s life is especially important – at this time the foundation of future health is laid. It is important what the dog eats, what care she receives. If all is well, the English Cocker Spaniel will not be susceptible to any disease.
