Care requirements

Breed personality, characteristics & temperament
The American Cocker Spaniel has a typical gundog temperament, with a keenly developed sense of retrieving. They are outgoing, friendly, and very sociable dogs. They make keen companions and are very good with children.

Compatibility with other pets
This breed adjusts readily to most pets.

Care requirements
American Cocker Spaniels require time and great care to bring their coat into full bloom. To achieve this frequent brushing and bathing is needed or regular trips to the grooming parlour. This applies not only when they are puppies, but also for the life of the dog. While the American Cocker looks very elegant when in full coat, many pet owners keep their dogs in ‘pet clip’ – leaving the coat only about 5cm in length on the legs and stomach. This significantly reduces the tendency of the coat to knot, and makes bathing, drying and grooming much easier.

Please take note
Although a small breed, the American Cocker still needs daily exercise. Digging holes in the garden can be a sign of boredom. Ideally this breed needs to be allowed off the leash to run free, providing it is safe to do so. Such free exercise periods should be well supervised, with the dog kept within calling distance at all times.

Decision time

Ideal owners
Families who are prepared to meet this breed's ongoing grooming needs, and want a companion to go ‘out and about’ with them will not be disappointed.
