Owners may find that these dogs are difficult to housebreak, and often barking can be a problem. These dogs are affectionate, which is great news for those looking for a devoted pet, but the Cocker Spaniel can sometimes get a little over dedicated and clingy, which makes him something of a demanding pet, and certainly not ideal for those that cannot dedicate the time to look after a pet and pay it plenty of attention.

These dogs are about 13-16 inches in height, and the weight of the Cocker Spaniel is around 22-28 pounds.

Cocker Spaniel Grooming

The coat of the Cocker Spaniel should be brushed every couple of days in order to keep it in good condition, and every couple of months or so you may need to get the coat clipped. Also, during grooming sessions you should check the ear canals to ensure that they are clean and dry.
