Behold, the dog with the tail that never tires of wagging. A smallish, sporty dog, the Cocker Spaniel’s trademark look is its luxurious silky coat and dangly ears.
There are two strains of the Cocker Spaniel breed; working Cockers and show-types. Working Cocker Spaniels were originally bred as gundogs, with the stamina to run after game all day long. Show-types, as the name suggests, are bred for dog shows and are more compact. Both types share similar characteristics, with minor differences in temperament and appearance. Let’s take a look at the Cocker Spaniel.
