Appearance
The English Cocker Spaniel is a small but sturdy looking dog, with a handsome appearance and a beautiful silky coat. These dogs weigh in at 25-32 pounds for females and around 28-35 pounds for males. The height of the female English Cocker Spaniel is around 14-16 inches inches, and the height of the male is around 17-17 inches. The coat of the English Cocker Spaniel is flat, long, and silky, and he has beautiful, long silky ears that frame his sweet face. Coloring can vary and includes white with markings that can be blue, liver, or red; solid black, solid liver, or solid red, and some may have tan markings.
 

Temperament
The English Cocker Spaniel is an eager, playful, and cheerful dog with plenty of affection to give and a responsive and gentle nature. This is a sociable breed, and loves to be around his loved ones. Sweet and enthusiastic, the English Cocker Spaniel makes for a great family pet, but it is worth noting that some can be overly dependant on their owners to the point where they become clingy, so it is important to teach your English Cocker Spaniel to be independent. These sensitive dogs can sometimes be overly timid and submissive, so early socialization and training is important.

The English Cocker Spaniel is an eager to please dog and a quick learner, and this makes training easy. However, housebreaking can sometime be a problem and some English Cocker Spaniels can be chronic barkers. When it comes to children these dogs are generally very good, and they are also very friendly with strangers in most instances. The English Cocker Spaniel will get along well with other pets too, making this breed ideal for families with other pets. Some English Cocker Spaniels can have a willful nature and this can result in possessiveness when it comes to things like his toys.

 
History
The English Cocker Spaniel actually originated from Wales in the UK, and his skill in hunting the bird known as the woodcock earned him his name. Like other cocker spaniels the English Cocker Spaniel was bred to flush out birds from even dense undergrowth.
 
Health
The life expectancy of the English Cocker Spaniel is around 12-15 years. This is quite a sturdy and healthy breed in general, but there are some health problems that have been linked to the breed. This includes HD, PRA, kidney problems, deafness, and cataracts. Allergies, seizures, and thyroid problems may also be a problem in some lines. Parents of the English Cocker Spaniel puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
