Cocker Spaniel Temperament

Cocker Spaniels are known to be a happy, faithful and outgoing breed – often referred to as the ‘social butterfly’ of dog breeds. The English Cocker Spaniel is an intelligent dog and loves to be part of the action. They are a very loving, sociable and playful breed, making them great for families with children and they generally get along well with other dogs, given they have been properly socialised as a puppy. Whether its playing fetch in the back yard or curling up for a movie on the couch – your Cocker Spaniel will be happy as long as they are with you!

Cocker Spaniel Health Issues

Patella Luxation: An abnormally shallow groove in the knee, which causes the knee cap (patella) to slip out of position.

Ear Infections: Dogs have a vertical ear canal (unlike humans which are horizontal) so it is easy for moisture and debris to be retained within the ear canal, causing irritation. It is seen most in floppy eared breeds, so it is important that ears be dried properly after a bath or swim and ensure they are cleaned regularly.

Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA): A group of retinal degeneration diseases that worsens over time and can lead to impaired vision or even blindness.
