Small dog breeds
Characterstics and origins.
There are 2 kinds of this breed. The English Cocker Spaniel and the American Cocker Spaniel.
The Cocker Spaniel is a medium sized dog, reaching on males 15.7 inches height while females are smaller. When described, we could highlight three characteristics, one of them is their typically curved down ears, the other two are about it’s hair, short on it’s head and long in the rest of the body.
We can find different colored Cockers, having between 1 and 3 colors of hair. We can find them with hairs going from black to white, golden too, redish, cream, or even silverish color. Their hair is straight or slightly curly and requiers brushing at least twice a weak to mantain it in good conditions and avoid knots.
It’s body is firm and has strong musculature, it shows an agile way of walking which is really sightful. This breed has lost it’s popularity over the past few years. However, it’s a common breed to find asociated with a family living with good social behavior.
This breed is really loving and playful, it’ll always look to please you. It’s a very love needy dog, so it requiers all the company it’s owner can give, this dog will be if you let him your “shade”.
It’ll for sure wave its tail vigorously when it sees you returning home and will search for your attention, since it’s a very needy dog. It will sociabilize with kids and other dogs in a peaceful way too.
It’s nutrition shouldnt exceed the recomended for the Cocker Spaniel. Since this dog is like an empty barrel and won’t stop eating and that’s inconvinient when you don’t want your dog to overweight
Another thing you should have in mind always is to clean their ears, since they can infect and be really smelly. So cleaning them periodically is adviced.
