Cocker Spaniel

The people-adoring Cocker Spaniel dislikes being left alone; Cockers who aren’t well socialized — and even some who are — can develop severe separation anxiety that takes the form of barking, whining and destructive behavior. In addition, his coat requires professional grooming or frequent care from a dedicated owner. The silky medium-length coat must be brushed several times a week and bathed and trimmed weekly. Even a Cocker with a short trim needs frequent brushing and bathing and trimming every couple of weeks. He is prone to ear infections, so weekly ear inspection and cleaning (if needed) are recommended. Many people rely on professional groomers every four to six weeks to keep their Cocker Spaniels looking the very best.
