The Cocker Spaniel is a medium-sized dog that originated in the United Kingdom and bred as a hunting dog.
There are two different breeds of Cocker Spaniels:
- English Cocker Spaniel
- American Cocker Spaniel
They have a long coat that is straight and wave, while chest, legs, and belly are covered with long hair. He doesn’t require lots of grooming and when it comes to shredding he is an average shedder. The coat is usually in a solid colour such as light, black, red, brown or cream or it can be a combination of these colours mixed with white. The American Cocker Spaniels are smaller and have shorter back, domed head, and shorter muzzle. It is important to give them as much as you can because they need to exercise frequently.
Cocker Spaniel can reach up to 38 cm in height and 15 kg in weight.
