|The English Cocker Spaniels are a small sporting breed originally breed to hunt upland game
birds. In 1800's small spaniels were developed to hunt woodcock. They are slightly larger than
the American Cocker and have less coat and a more elongated head and body.
The classic temperament of the English Cocker Spaniels is that of the "Merry Cocker". English
Cocker Spaniels are friendly, affectionate and loyal. They are good with children and make
wonderful companion dogs. English Cocker Spaniels need daily exercise as a outlet for their energy.
English Cocker Spaniels can live in any environment, provided they have daily exercise. Brisk
walks, fetching of field work can keep an English Cocker Spaniel in excellent shape.
English Cocker Spaniels need human companionship. Although they can sleep all day while
you're at work, they require lots of attention and exercise when you're home.
