English Cocker Spaniel

I had an English Cocker Spaniel for many years and I believe that it is a warm and loving breed. He loved to cuddle and was very active, but like to have his nap time as well mostly next to his owner :) Some people say these dogs aren't smart which is most definitely not true. My dog knew over 30 commands and learned them very quickly. Besides all the positives there are some downsides to this breed as well. These dogs can be quite loud, but more importantly can be a bit aggressive. You have to be tough with the dog in order for it to be trained well and behave as it should. Having a male dog of this kind since he was little I had to set tough and rigorous rules. These dogs can also be aggressive towards other dogs. Even though my dog was castrated he would throw himself at other male dogs of the same breed at times. (when it came to female dogs he was very tamed and understanding)
This breed requires a lot of discipline from the owner as well as strong will (as their eyes can really work wonders). I hope this review helps you chose your perfect dog ;)
