English cocker spaniel puppy: how to choose?
Before choosing an English Cocker Spaniel puppy, think about the question again. Do you have enough energy, time and resources for your pet? Chat with breeders and other owners, visit exhibitions to see if the English Cocker Spaniel is really your breed.
A good breeder is responsible for choosing future owners for puppies, so do not be alarmed if you are asked questions about the conditions in which the dog will live, about the goals of acquiring a puppy. Answer sincerely – in this case, the breeder will help you choose the most suitable baby. In turn, feel free to ask questions, including “immodest” or “weird.” A responsible breeder will only please your corrosivity, as it indicates that you are serious. If the questions are irritating or you get evasive, blurry answers, it is better to look for another nursery.
Pay attention to the size of the puppies of the English Cocker Spaniel. Excessively large babies often turn into loose dogs. It is important that the length of the body is approximately equal to the height at the withers.
Take a closer look at how puppies behave, play among themselves and communicate with people. A bulging kid can become aggressive, while a quiet and timid one may not feel too well.
If you need a dog for hunting, choose a puppy from working parents with appropriate diplomas.
Hunters often prefer bitches: they begin to hunt faster, they are easier to train and they are more obedient. However, during estrus, pregnancy and raising puppies, the dog cannot hunt. Males are more active and hunt better, but harder to train them, they are more distracted and prone to escaping for “beautiful ladies”.
