Behavior and habitat American Cocker Spaniël
The American Cocker Spaniel is from the beginning a pet and show dog. Of course the American Cocker in his heart a hunting dog. Centuries of selection effects cannot be nullified in a relatively short period. Hunt and strolling through the field is still an enjoyable pastime. That does not mean that this variety is suitable for hunting. The coat is too long and too thick. He can live in an apartment, but you should exhaust him
History of the American Cocker Spaniël
The American Cocker Spaniel is the smallest in the breed group of spaniels and retrievers. It is also the youngest breed of the group, because he was only recognized in 1946 by the AmericanKennel Club.
The American Spaniel Club was founded in 1882 by a Canadian, Mr.. Mac Douglas (from Toronto) and an American, Mr.. Watson. The origin of this variety is due to selective breeding of theoriginal Cocker Spaniels, imported at the end of the 19th century from England in the UnitedStates. The structure that the American Cocker Spaniel now has is due to selection of the originalEnglish type. A relatively large group of breeders was determined to create from the EnglishCocker, through selection of desired features, a cocker spaniel of their own American creation.The Spaniels are one of the oldest and largest group among the canines. Slowly other differencesbetween the two Cockers were noticed. Itwas not just a difference in weight. TheAmericans and Canadians selected fortheir breeding dogs a more square head, arounded skull, a short muzzle, large roundeyes and a deep stop. Because they wereslightly smaller, they also had a shorterbody but longer legs. Another striking feature was a longer, much thicker abundant coat. Actually itwas a difference in taste, the English wanted a sportive dog, on the other side of the Atlantic was chosen for a luxuriousshow dog. When in 1946 the American Cocker Spaniel was officially recognized, there came an end to the long strugglebetween the breeders of both layers.
