American Cocker Spaniel Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: American Cocker Spaniel

The American version of the Cocker Spaniel is smaller, has a shorter muzzle and more prominent eyes than the English Cocker Spaniel. The Cocker Spaniel is the smallest of the Sporting Group with a sturdy, compact body, long elegant ears and a silky and feathery coat. He has a cheerful and sweet personality which makes him a wonderful companion. He is playful, intelligent, trusting and loyal, and generally gets along well with other animals. He is a gentle and trusting dog, but early socialization is important with this breed as with all dogs.

The Cocker Spaniel is adaptable in that he is suited for being a household companion as well as a gundog. Today, the Cocker Spaniel is still a popular breed used as a hunting dog, to find, flush and retrieve upland game birds. In addition, he is also very popular in the show ring as well as competing in obedience and agility trials.

The Cocker Spaniel is one of the most popular breeds of dogs. Unfortunately, with this popularity comes the issue of irresponsible breeders attempting to cash in. Characteristics such as being timid, yappy, nervous, and high-strung are not natural to the breed and may be a result of poor breeding. If you are considering the purchase of a Cocker Spaniel puppy, be especially selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder.

The American version of the Cocker Spaniel was developed through breeding of English Cocker Spaniels that were brought to the United States from England. The Cocker Spaniel has been recognized by England's Kennel Club since 1892 and has been shown in the US since the early 1880s. In the US, the breed evolved as a different type, size and colouring and thus was separated and named the American Cocker Spaniel.
