Is a cocker spaniel a breed of dog?
All dogs shed hair. If shedding or hair on your clothing are going to be problems for you, then a Cocker Spaniel may not be the best breed choice for you. They require plenty …of grooming to maintain their beautiful coats in healthy condition and with lowered noticeable shedding. However, any dogs with longer silky coats will have more noticeable shedding than some other breeds, not because they shed more or more often, but because longer hair, like that on Cockers piles up faster. Before you decide one way or the other on this breed, read up about the breed and its grooming needs and, if possible, visit a responsible breeder to see the actual grooming process and ask questions. They will be best able to help you evaluate if that breed will be a good fit for you and your family. You can find contact information for good local breeders through the AKC Chapter in your area.
Your dog probably has an allergy to grains which are found in many dog foods. Try switching to a grain-free dog food. Taste of the Wild is one example. These are higher qualit…y dog foods - more meat without the grain filler - and will cost more money, but your dog will be happy!
Um...do you mean "Are Cocker Spaniels good with children?" If that's what you mean, then yes, the breed is known for being good with children, generally. yes, i have a co…cker spaniel and the dog is very friendly with my children and at first it was shy but then he got to know the family and he's independant.......also they are known to have the longest eye lashes
Between 2-3 years of age.
Yes, Cocker Spaniels are indoor dogs.
They are not they are very kind and loyal to people all around them I used to have one ya know. Another answer No, they are not dangerous but Cocker spaniels are high stru…ng and get excitable when people come over, they tend to wet on the floor a lot, as least the three dogs I personally knew.
Maybe not the worst, but they must be close to the worst: they are insecure, prone to cherry eye (some kind of gross condition where part of one eye bulges out of the socket a…nd gets infected), have constant yucky (disgusting) eye discharge that gets all black and crusty (my wife refuses to touch it). Their hair grows like crazy and gets all over. If you cut them in proper cocker style or just let the hair grow out it gets all matted unless you constantly groom them. They are too big to take everywhere (like in the car on longer trips like a lap dog) and too small to be cool or to provide security. And in my humble opinion, when they are cut and groomed in traditional cocker style they look ridiculous, like some bad wig from the 80s. The hair grows so fast on their paws which means almost every time you take a cocker for a walk they are sweeping the sidewalk and pathways and get home requiring a bath unless you like dirty footprints all over the house. They can tend to be piddlers too (ours is and it drives me nuts, pees instantly anytime it gets nervous like when a new visitor comes to the house and tries to pet him). The only good thing is they are loyal and not bad with kids, though we were advised to neuter ours for assurance of better manner with our young children. Now more on our particular cocker, which may be just ours, but it is so insecure that it follows either my wife or I every footstep. I swear I can walk up and down three stairs 20 times in a row and he'll just keep doing it step for step without catching on. Ours also randomly decides he hates a person, no rhyme or reason to it, and when he sees that person he lunges at the window or at the person barking like a seal that got run over by a truck- it's just embarassing. He also took a nip at a passerby once while on a walk and it was really awkward getting the lecture from the guy (afraid of a cocker, what a pansy) when we had no way of seeing it coming and he was on a leash. Ours also always jumps up and claws at people, mostly my wife and I, when we're sitting at the table or talking to company- like he's begging for attention. It's that insecurity thing (as well as occasionally trying to mooch food). But it's also super annoying because if his nails aren't filed he can scratch or tear your clothing. He also always wants to climb up on beds and sofas to sit next to us, which I'm not crazy about with all his hair. I know, dog fanatics, I'm too uptight and complainy, and that it's all our fault for being irresponsible dog owners and not providing proper training etc, but rest assured we still love him and treat him very well. But I would sooner stick a fork in my eye than ever get another cocker spaniel.
Cocker Spoodle A mix of a cocker spaniel and a poodle is called a "Cocker-Poo". (Barcelona lady)
yes and no. they are good dogs, however when they get older, they tend to get mean and cranky. this isn't the case with all, but many that i have seen. so this may… not be the best breed if you have a family and young kids.
Any naturally grown fruit or vegetable is fine for animals in moderation. For example, my dog loves string green beans from the garden. She also loves fresh carrots. You… can give the dog a small piece from the inside of the apple (not the skin, I don't trust skins) and see if he/she likes it. If he/she does, you can give a tablespoon size a day. It is also good for dogs if you give them one raw egg (not the shell) mixed into 1 cup of whole milk. For smaller breeds, only every other day or twice a week. This mixture will help their skin and coat. SHINY!! :) Hope this helps.

There are many different types of dogs that you can breed with a Cocker Spaniel. A pure bred Cocker is a great breed by itself, too. Here are some Cocker Spaniel mixed br…eeds: Cock-a-Chon (Cocker Spaniel/Bichon Frise mix) Cock-a-Mo (Cocker Spaniel/American Eskimo mix) Cock-a-Tzu (Cocker Spaniel/Shih-Tzu mix) Cockalier (Cocker Spaniel/Cavlier King Charles mix) Cockapin (Cocker Spaniel/Minature Pinscher mix) Cockapoo (Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix) Cockapug (Cocker Spaniel/Pug mix) Cocker Westie (Cocker Spaniel/West Highland Terrier mix) Cockeranian (Cocker Spaniel/Pomeranian mix) CockerSchnauz (Cocker Spaniel/Schnauzer mix) Cockinese (Cocker Spaniel/Pekingese mix) Colonial Cocker Spaniel (American Cocker Spaniel/English Cocker Spaniel mix) Comfort Retriever (Cocker Spaniel/Golden Retriever mix) Cotralian (Cocker Spaniel/Miniature Australian Shepard mix)
Cockers are generally between 13 to 15" tall and 15 to 30 pounds. The smallest I have seen was 11" tall and 10 pounds at 2 yrs of age. Many people call smaller Cockers mini co…ckers but really there is no such thing. It is just a smaller Cocker. If you are looking for a small Cocker make sure both the parents are small because the larger size is dominant. You can not go by the puppy's size either. I have seen many times a puppy that was half the size of it's siblings catch up to them by adulthood. And have seen larger Cockers give birth to a whole litter of tiny puppies that were only 1.5 pounds at 4 weeks of age but all the puppies were around 30 pounds full grown. Smaller Cockers are not to the AKC Standards so you would never be able to show it.
