The English Cocker Spaniel is an alert, compactly built, medium-sized dog. The English Cocker is the smallest in the gundog group. It hunts well in difficult terrain. These days, the English Cocker is more often a companion dog due to its good-natured disposition.

The talents of this breed include tracking, hunting, retrieving, watchdogging, agility, and competitive obedience. It is also called the Merry Cocker because of its energetic, playful, and eager to please nature and its unique tail wagging which includes its entire hindquarters. It is compact but bigger than the American Cocker Spaniel.

Health Issues:

The English Cocker Spaniels are prone to ear infections and inherited eye diseases. During the summer, the ears should be checked often; they can become host to ticks. To minimize the risk of your Cocker Spaniel developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy an English Cocker Spaniel puppy from a reputable Cocker Spaniel breeder
