Cocker Spaniel Breed
In the world of dogs, there is perhaps no breed more associated with a specific name than the Cocker Spaniel. The name Cocker Spaniel rolls off the tongue and reflects the actual appearance of the Spaniel itself – a small, flowing, elegant animal that is well-balanced and has a general reputation for good behavior.
But what about the Cocker Spaniel makes it such a quintessential dog? Like many breeds, the Cocker Spaniel has a rich history updated into a modern appearance, but the Spaniel is not as old as even the Rottweiler. In this brief guide, we’ll take a look at the Cocker Spaniel and address how it became a breed synonymous with “quality dog.”
The mention of “Spanyells” goes back as far as the Middle Ages – the 14th century, to be exact. There’s a good chance these “Spanyells” weren’t exactly the Cocker Spaniels we know today, but this specific breed of dog has certainly enjoyed a rich history.
It’s assumed Spaniels first appeared in Spain during this time, but the first appearance of the phrase “Cocker Spaniel” didn’t originate until the 1800s, when a specific type of field spaniel began assuming the name. At the time, in England, the phrase Cocker Spaniel could also refer to a number of other spaniels such as the Norfolk and Sussex Spaniels, which today could be considered different breeds.
This general classification gave rise to a low standard of calling a dog a Cocker Spaniel: until around 1870, the only characteristic a dog named a “Cocker Spaniel” had to have was a weight of under 25 pounds. Needless to say, the standards have risen, but the story helps illustrate why the phrase “Cocker Spaniel” seems to associate itself with any manner of small dogs.
Cocker Spaniels were considered to be hounds hundreds of years ago, and as such were often used to assist with hunting, as many dogs at the time were. Since Cocker Spaniels helped hunt Woodcock, you find the name “Cocker.”
Cocker Spaniels have actually been pedigree to many other dogs as classifications have grown more sophisticated. The aforementioned Norfolk and Sussex Spaniels were initially considered Cocker Spaniels, as were Welsh Springer Spaniels, formerly known as Welsh Cocker Spaniels.
Today, there is a stark difference in the appearance of the American Cocker Spaniel and the English Cocker Spaniel. If you’re interested in learning more about Cocker Spaniels, it’s a good idea to view these animals as different breeds.
Excitable but well-balanced, Cocker Spaniels are a well-behaved small dog that has a lot of energy, particularly when they’re young. They’re friendly enough to be one of the most popular breeds of dog in America and can take very well to company, particularly if they’ve formed bonds with certain people. These Spaniels are not a toy dog and enjoy having something to do, so treat them as a sporting dog even if you keep them groomed like a toy breed.
