The head of the English cocker spaniel is long and somewhat narrow, compared to other spaniels. The ears are long and set low. Overall, the dog's expression is soft, and the contours of the head are soft, with no abrupt angles.

The hair is of medium length and somewhat silky; it is long enough to protect the dog's underside when in the field but never so long as to be a hindrance. The dog's coat comes in a variety of colours and patterns.


The English cocker spaniel has kept strong hunting instincts; this dog likes few things better in life than to go out in search of birds. Yet that pleasure is closely rivalled by the pleasure the dog derives from being close to family members. This is a breed that likes to be part of every family activity. They are  cheerful, biddable, loyal, sensitive and playful; in short, a perfect companion for a considerate child or an adventurous adult.

This is a friendly dog, whether to other dogs and pets, children, strangers, and even burglars. The English cocker spaniel is a pretty good watchdog.

Living With:

The English cocker spaniel was bred to hunt all day long, searching for, flushing, and retrieving upland game birds. This kind of energy cannot be burned off in a walk around the block. These dogs need plenty of exercise, but fortunately they can satisfy their needs with a couple of good exercise periods a day. Ready access to a fenced garden is a definite help.

The English cocker spaniel's coat must be brushed two or three times a week. For best appearances, the coat should be clipped or scissored around the face, ears, tail and feet every couple of months.

Ears need special attention, as they are somewhat prone to problems if they are allowed to remain moist inside. When the dog is eating, the ears should be held back with a head stocking (called a snood) to prevent food from getting stuck in the feathered tips.
