Cocker Spaniel Puppies for Sale in Maryland
Cocker spaniels were originally bred as hunting dogs in the early 20th century in Spain. They were also associated with royalty because the Queen of England preferred the breed over others. Fans of Disney may also remember the female American cocker spaniel, Lady, in the 1955 film Lady and the Tramp. If you’re looking for a small, cuddly dog that’s both energetic and lively, the cocker spaniel may be a good fit.
Cocker spaniels thrive on attention, which makes them excellent companions. As puppies, they tend to be full of energy but are extremely obedient and easy to train. They come in an array of colors, but their extremely long coats need to be brushed and tended to often. Fully grown, the cocker spaniel stands about 15 inches tall and weighs around 30 pounds.
They’re well known for their ability to live anywhere, but it’s important to provide daily exercise or short play sessions in a fenced yard to reduce bad behaviors. A nonaggressive breed, these dogs tend to greet everyone cheerfully, so they don’t make very good watchdogs.
