English Cocker Spaniel Dog breeders
Some owners prefer to bring their dogs to a professional groomer for upkeep of the moderate coat. Their nails should be trimmed regularly to avoid overgrowth and cracking. Special attention must be paid to the dog’s long ears, keeping them clean and neatly trimmed. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.

The saying “A face only a mother could love” definitely doesn’t apply to the English Cocker. They are famous for their so-called “melting expression”: A soft, dewy-eyed look that could warm even the coldest heart. The English Cocker is the Lindsay Vonn of dogs: a world-class athlete who can hold her own on the red carpet. Merry and affectionate, the English Cocker Spaniel is an excellent family companion due to its even disposition and trainability. Whether working in the field or at home lounging on their owner’s bed, their tails rarely stop wagging.
