Naturally cheerful, their tail wagging constantly, English Cocker Spaniels are typically bustling dogs, especially on a trail, which it follows without concern for heavy cover. They are affectionate and gentle with those they know, but full of life and natural exuberance, only ever truly satisfied when they are on the go.
Well developed, clearly chiseled skull, neither too fine nor too heavy, well defined stop.
Strong and compact, with firm, straight topline, gently sloping from the short, broad loins to the base of the tail, well developed chest.
Varied (white is not allowed on the chest in self colors).
Lobular, set low, covered with long, straight, silky hairs.
Slightly curved, medium length, proportionate to the size of the dog and proportionate to the rest of the body.
Flat and silky, never wiry not wavy, not too abundant and never curly.
Cheerful, vigorous and well balanced, English Cocker Spaniels are the best known and most widespread of the spaniels. These short, compact dogs – about as long as they are tall at the withers – are very healthy and full of gusto.
