About the Cocker Spaniel

The well-bred Cocker Spaniel has a sweet temperament and is a pleasure to own. He is affectionate and cuddly and loves to participate in family activities. He is playful, alert, and active, enjoying any exercise from a brisk walk to hunting in the field. The Cocker is known to be a sensitive dog, mentally and physically. Learn More...

Finding a Breeder

Be selective. Find a breeder who is knowledgeable and make sure you’re comfortable with them. Don’t be put off if a breeder isn’t immediately responsive. Hobby breeders often have full-time jobs and they don’t always have available puppies. Visit the breeder’s home or kennel and ask to see at least one of the puppy’s parents. Get an idea of what the future holds for your dog in terms of temperament and appearance.  Establish a good rapport with the breeder. He/she will be an excellent resource and breed mentor for you throughout the life of your puppy. You should be encouraged to call the breeder if your dog has a crisis at any stage of its life.  Breeders should be willing to answer any questions you have and should ask many of you as well.  Breeders will want to make sure their puppies are going to good homes, with people who know what to expect and have made all the necessary preparations.
