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 cocke…r 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
If you can train it well!they bite alout too! i know because i had one! Adding more info: Short story is no, they're not good dogs to have. There's nothing good about man…y of the tendencies of this breed (of course they're never all the same, I am just talking about common behavior and physical traits) compared to so many other breeds, and lots of negatives. Good=loyal Bad=insecure, tempermental, prone to cherry eye, yucky eye discharge, shedding and constant rapid hair growth and grooming required, piddlers, not too bright, too big to be a travel companion lap dog and too small to provide any security, I could go on but although I love ours and we treat him well, I would never have chosen a cocker if I could go back in time.
\nyes 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 th…e best breed if you have a family and young kids.
probably...quite by accident our 6 year old cocker spaniel, Lillie, who has never had babies bred with my daughters 18 month old chihuaua, Jasper...so yes they can. She should… be giving birth in about 2 weeks and we are eager to see what thgey will look like and what there temperment will be. She is very loving ,affectionate, and loyal while he is a bundle of energy and stubborn.
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.

Yes, Cocker Spaniels are indoor dogs.
Answer: No, the smartest breed of dog is the Lab Retriever(mix). Another Answer: You will find many lists of the top ten smartest dog breeds and they will vary, but… in most all of them they agree that the top dog is the Border Collie when it comes to intelligence.
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.
