Known for its sweet, playful nature, the American Cocker Spaniel is suited to life as a pet or a working gundog; the breed has speed and stamina and needs plenty of exercise. It also has a tendency towards shyness, so early and regular socialization is important.
The Cocker Spaniel is the smallest member of the sporting division, and resulted from the selection of small dogs from the land spaniel group. Breed status was given to this dog in 1892 (England Kennel Club). After import to the USA around 1880, the American type became distinct from the English cocker type, being shorter, heavier coated and having a rounder skull, and now are two quite distinct breeds; American and English Cocker Spaniel. The American cocker is often just termed Cocker Spaniel. The feature role of a cocker type dog in the cartoon “Lady and the Tramp” by Disney resulted in a large sudden surge of the popularity of this breed.
This dog was bred to be a hunting dog, and though considered a land spaniel, will work in water readily. The name cocker is thought to derive from “woodcock”, game that they were particularly suited for. Today, they commonly serve as a valued home companion, enjoy agility competitions, and still maintain status as one of the most popular AKC breeds.
