Is the Cocker Spaniel / Labrador Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Spanador, Cockador

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Spanador is a cross between a pure Labrador Retriever and a pure Cocker Spaniel, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While the outcome of a mixed pairing is never guaranteed, these playful, active, and sometimes rambunctious dogs can fit right into the active family.

Appearance / health:
Since it isn't a purebreed, there can be a lot of variation in the appearance of the Cockador, depending on whether the Cocker Spaniel or the Labrador Retriever traits dominate. Expect a dog that thrives on exercise.

Behavior / temperament:
While the personality trait of a mixed breed is never guaranteed, the strong Labrador influence often means that this dog demands a lot of exercise and play with its owner. If you're too busy to work out with your dog, or you live in a tiny apartment, you might be wise to select a different mix.
