American Cocker Spaniel

February 25, 2011

American Cocker Spaniel

The American Cocker Spaniel has a long silky coat, which looks magnificent when maintained well.  In order to keep it looking great, this breed will need lots of grooming, bathing and regular clipping.

With regards to their temperament, they are lovely gentle dogs that are great with young children, will respond well to training and love going for walks with the whole family.  Their big floppy ears can get grass seeds stuck in them and also yeast infections which is important to keep an eye on, as both problems are easily solved.

The average lifespan is around 14 years, but they can live for up to 18 years with the right diet, genetics and lifestyle.
