The American Cocker Spaniel is obtained by breeding an English Cocker Spaniel, it is a dog with a special head shape and luxurious hair, very attractive, a favorite of the family. The resulting hunting dogs are now regarded as sports dogs, although they are more often used as companions.

Cockers – gentle, joyful, playful, loyal, easily master everything that they learn. Intelligent and welcoming, cockers are created to love everyone and accept the love of others. Like us, the cocker spaniel is a person who must be respected and reckoned with.
Golden and black English cockers are more temperamental, impulsive and uncontrollable than colorful ones. In American cockers, this difference is not so pronounced, moreover, they are usually trickier. Active and active dogs are not suitable as a companion for people who want to enjoy peace without interference.
You need to know that cockers, like hunting dogs, absolutely need to move a lot, discharge their boiling energy.
American cocker spaniels are unpretentious in choosing food, but they need to be fed moderately, given the physical activity.
Dogs are easier to master the behavior necessary for living outside the city than in urban environments. But in general, cockers wonderfully adapt to circumstances.
A pet, “sofa dog” will be happy to go to the forest and will actively share his enthusiasm with the owner. These dogs have an extremely cheerful nature. Cocker enjoys everything, especially the opportunity to bring something to the owner – prey, toy, whatever. He loves his owners, considers the whole house to be his territory, and himself – a full member of the family.
A pet dog needs regular trimming and daily combing. The coat of the English cocker is shorter than that of the American one; it requires special care only on the ears and legs.
You should pay special attention to ear care; choose dishes for food in which the ears will not climb into the process of eating. The beauty of the dog depends entirely on the owner’s concerns.
