The history of the breed.

The history of the American Cocker Spaniel is common with other breeds of spaniels, since at an early stage they were all the same dogs, for those who did not read the early history of these dogs I will recall.

If we are talking about respect, then first of all the dog experiences it in relation to the owner, and in the second – to itself. Children in this hierarchical pyramid occupy the penultimate step. Yes, the “English” are happy to play with them, but do not expect the dog to have angelic patience and iron endurance when the child begins to cause her serious discomfort or pain. Continue reading
