Overview

The American Cocker Spaniel is the smallest of the spaniel breeds and shares a unique common ancestry with the slightly larger English Cocker Spaniel. Although originally hunting dogs, American Cockers are now bred mainly as household pets. Barron's Dog Bibles present veterinarian-approved advice and information on specific dog breeds. Written especially for first-time buyers of a given breed, each title in this series describes the breed's traits, history, behavior characteristics, and recommended training methods. Prospective owners are advised on what to look for when choosing a puppy, how breed-specific traits influence the relationship between dog and owner, and potential health problems to look out for in specific breeds. They'll also find information on grooming, exercise, nutrition, health maintenance, training, and play activities. Interesting sidebars present fun facts, helpful hints, and quick tips on training. A hidden spiral binding ensures that the book will stay open and flat at any desired page. The DVD enclosed with each book presents an informal dog training course for new owners.

    Great book on how to raise a Cocker Spaniel

    I am getting a Cocker Spaniel puppy and wanted some information on the breed, temperment, house training, etc. This book is truly fantastic. I have learned so much and am so glad I purchased it. The author is very informed on the breed and I have read it twice in preparation for my puppy. I will continue to refer to it as I need it. This is a great educational tool to have for a new puppy as well as an older dog. Great book!
