Presentation of the English cocker spaniel
Cheerful and affectionate dog, the English Cocker Spaniel has a rather playful character and appreciates the company of children. With a life expectancy of around 13 years, this type of dog requires a firm education or else they will become the head of the house. Do not be moved by his special look.
With a jealous and exclusive nature, the Cocker Spaniel requires education with several hands in order to limit the overly close relationship with its owner. Indeed, it is important to involve the whole family in their education as well as in their daily outings. Finally, the Cocker Spaniel can live in an apartment on condition of not being alone during the day and being able to go out regularly. If this happens, your dog will tend to cry and cause nuisance to the neighborhood.
