American Cocker -
Clumber - Cocker - English Springer - Field
Irish Water - Sussex - Welsh Springer
The American Cocker Spaniel derives from the
English Cocker Spaniel but in facial and coat appearance is quite different. A dog that
requires huge amounts of grooming due to his very long and thick coat. The Clumber on the
other hand is fairly easy to groom. He is a small, 45 cm (18 inches), but solidly built
dog that has an air of confident superiority.
The Cocker (English) is a happy enthusiastic
dog that stands at 41 cm (16 inches). He needs regular grooming but no where near the
extent of the American - always on the move and willing to fetch and carry.
Springers get their name from their ability "spring" birds or flush them out. A
lively dog that is virtually tireless needing lots and lots of exercise. At 51 cm
(20 inches) they enjoy a game and are not difficult to groom.
The Field Spaniel looks similar to the Cocker
but is a little larger at 46 cm (18 inches). A dependable yet independent dog that makes a
good house dog. Skilful grooming is what is required for the Irish Water Spaniel. This
tall 58 cm (23 inches) Spaniel has a happy disposition and has plenty of energy.
The Sussex is a small breed at 41 cm (16
inches) that has a wrinkled brow. He is large boned with a pleasant temperament. The Welsh
Springer is slightly smaller than the English at 48 cm (19 inches), likes people and
learns quickly and easily.
