As one of the oldest Spaniel types, the English Cocker Spaniel earned its name centuries ago after proving to be wildly successful in catching woodcock. Alert and intelligent, with a naturally cheerful disposition, the English Cocker Spaniel is a popular breed for a multitude of reasons, including its ease in training, extreme loyalty, and exceptional land hunting skills. The English Cocker Spaniel is the smallest member of the American Kennel Club Sporting Group, but his high energy and friendly disposition give him a personality that’s larger than life.

Closely related, but smaller than the Springer Spaniel, the English Cocker Spaniel is known to be an outstanding hunter and an even better companion for families everywhere. In addition to the English Cocker Spaniel’s strong athleticism, the breed possesses a great sense of elegance and has been a major influencer in both fashion and pop culture throughout the years. Known as a champion flusher, the English Cocker Spaniel is commonly found accompanying his master in the field. The sporting breed is also a symbol of beauty and elegance and is a frequent winner in conformation show rings.
