Black and Tan Cocker Spaniels

Exhibited in the U.S. since the 1880s, the Cocker Spaniel remains one of the most popular breeds, according to AKC registration statistics. The Cocker has a sturdy, compact body and a silky, flat or wavy coat. He is a merry, well-balanced dog that is capable of considerable speed and great endurance. Cocker Spaniels can be black, black with tan points, parti-colored, or any solid color other than black.

A Look Back
As far back as the 14th century there is mention of the Spanyell, which came to be divided into water and land spaniels. "Cockers" are the smallest of the spaniels and the Sporting Group. The American Cocker has evolved somewhat differently in appearance from the breed now recognized as the English Cocker Spaniel. His desire to hunt renders him a capable gun dog; he covers territory speedily, flushing game and retrieving only when under command. He takes to water readily.

Right Breed for You?
Despite their small size, the Cocker Spaniel is still an active Sporting breed that needs daily exercise. Regular brushing and a trim every few months helps keep the coat free of mats. Cockers are intelligent, gentle dogs that thrive as part of a family.

  • Sporting Group; AKC recognized in 1878.
  • Average size: from 13 1/2 inches to 15 1/2 inches at the shoulder.
  • Family pet, hunting dog.
