If you are after something different or later next year give us a call as we have another litter due at a later date. You are probably thinking, what makes these puppies different to the others advertised today. And I can tell you, the main difference would be we give it our all, we care 100%, and our babies are raised inside with our family NOT out side in kennels, we take the 9 weeks off work to be with the babies and mums every single day. So much love, care, training go into them. I have lots of people who will vouch for this, something I am also proud of. Our beautiful puppies are raised in an indoor family environment with exposure to other animals, people of different age groups, and household noises. Daily outdoor play time for mental and physical stimulation. Puppies are very well socialised and handled since birth. We expose them to our daily routines so they have an understanding of Routine making it easier for them to settle into a new home. Both parents we own and are beautifully natured, smart, fast learning and intelligent family members. They are used to property life as well as Sydney life where they come to work with me and sit there quietly. Puppies come: ⁃ health checked ⁃ Vet checked ⁃ DNA tested parents ⁃ Vaccinated ⁃ Microchipped ⁃ Worm treated every two weeks ⁃ Flea treated ⁃ safe from 7 DNA diseases! ⁃ puppy pack ⁃ Photos available from birth to follow their journey. ⁃ Puppy folder that includes all your paper work ⁃ routine trained ⁃ Toilet trained on artificial grass ⁃ Basic Obedience trained ⁃ Crate trained ⁃ Toy with litter and mother smells to help sleep in their new home These puppies have been raised in a super clean indoor environment. my self being a qualified vet nurse they are very well cared for and are raised in the best hands possible with everything done on time and up to date. Mum is 9.5kg and dad is 11kg Parents are DNA tested and puppies will be not affected by the 7 testable diseases so will have no testable genetic issues. Copies are provided on request. Puppies are raised on a quality diet *Royal Canin* to give them the best start in life. Being raised on our beautiful property in the lower hunter valley, they are well exposed to cats, dogs, chickens, horses, rabbits and loud noises. When the puppies are around 7 weeks, basic training (sit, wait, no, come ) will be in play to teach them obedience, general manners and reinforcement. Puppies get lots of Mental enrichment through their toys we provide through out their development. Puppies regularly get their nails trimmed from 2 weeks of age, they have been bathed, brushed and touched all over (mouth, eyes, ears, toes, tails) regularly to get them used to the sensation making it easy for later in life when they need to see the vet, be groomed, or a "simple" worming tablet! Located Warriewood Sydney and Laguna Hunter Valley, we are also happy to fly puppies interstate.

Grooming

Grooming

Cocker Spaniels require regular and thorough grooming to maintain their health and appearance due to their luxurious, silky coats and long, floppy ears.

Origins

Cocker Spaniels were developed from Spaniels – one of the oldest dog breeds in history. Legend has it that Spaniels were brought to England during Caesar’s invasion.

These dogs are believed to have come from Spain. There are two schools of thought that give credence to this theory.

One, it’s assumed that Spaniel is derived from the word Hispania meaning Spain. Two, Spaniel is derived from French “Chiens de l’ Espagnol”, which translates to “Dog of Spain”.

Generally, Spaniels were developed to help in retrieving and flushing out game. By the 1600’s, these dogs had been divided into two groups: water and land breeds. The English water Spaniel, which is now extinct, was mainly used to retrieve fowls.

The land Spaniels were further classified into two groups. These are the Springer and Cocker Spaniel. Cocker Spaniels were so named because they were used to hunt a game bird called the Woodcock. Springer Spaniels got their name from their technique of flushing or “springing” game.

In 1930, the Cocker Spaniel became a popular breed throughout Britain. On the other end of the Atlantic, Americans were using the same dog to create a different breed of the Cocker.

In 1940, the Kennel Club of Great Britain decided to split the two breeds. These are the American and English Cocker Spaniels.

During World War II, a pair of American Cocker Spaniels were brought to Australia. These dogs are still very popular today as they make excellent companions. Also in the United Kingdom, they are simply referred to as Cocker Spaniels.

Key Characteristics Of Cocker Spaniels

Are Cocker Spaniels Family-Friendly?

Lively, playful and polite to everyone. These attributes make them ideal family pets.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Cocker Spaniels may suffer from:

Eye problems

Autoimmune haemolytic anaemia

Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) in dogs is a serious condition where the dog’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys its own red blood cells, leading to anemia.

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism in dogs is a common endocrine disorder where the thyroid glands don’t produce enough thyroid hormones, leading to a slowdown in the dog’s metabolism.

Primary seborrhoea

Nature / Temperament

Gentle and loving personalities. They are also smart and trusting of their owners.

Suitable Environment

Cocker Spaniels are adaptable and thrive in a variety of living environments, making them perfect companions for both city dwellers with limited space and those with access to spacious yards in the suburbs or countryside. Their medium size and moderate energy levels mean they do well in apartments as long as they have regular opportunities for exercise and mental stimulation.

Other Considerations

  1. Cocker Spaniels are very social and love nothing more than following their owners around.
  2. These are physically sound pets that can live for as long as 15 years. But, they might be susceptible to different types of allergies.
  3. Due to their loving nature, they make excellent therapy dogs.
  4. Cocker spaniel puppies that are 6 months or younger should not be exercised to the point of exhaustion.
  5. A short 20 minute walk is adequate exercise.

How can I take good care of my Cocker Spaniel?

Nutrition

These dogs love their food. Therefore, their meals should be portion-controlled to prevent obesity and other weight-related problems. In particular, puppies should get approximately 150 – 250g of dog food per day. When older approximately 175 – 260g of food daily.

Of this amount, at least 25% should be made up of proteins. And, if you have a working Cocker Spaniel, they need a much higher amount of protein.

Grooming

Their grooming routine should include daily brushing to prevent mats and tangles, especially in the feathered areas around the legs, chest, and belly.

Exercise

These dogs are full of energy. They were originally hunting dogs before they became companions. As such, they need at least 1 hour of exercise each day. Apart from taking walks, these dogs enjoy playing and running around in the yard or garden.

Training

On a scale of 1 – 10, we rank Cocker Spaniels at a 9 on how trainable they are. These dogs are highly-intelligent and they are always ready to learn new tricks.

Most Asked Cocker Spaniel Questions

This dog is prone to aggression. But much of its character depends on its environment. A Cocker Spaniel that is well-socialised and trained is not aggressive.

Ideally, owners should train their pups from when they are between 6 – 20 weeks old. This can be achieved by socialisating the dog to a variety of circumstances, people and pets.

The short answer to this is No they shouldn’t be.

If you’ve had the pleasure of living with a Cocker Spaniel, then you understand how affectionate and sociable this breed is.

However, their jovial character is, to a great extent, reliant on human companionship. These dogs become very attached to their owners. So when left alone for a long time, they can suffer from separation anxiety.

Cocker Spaniels for sale cost between $1500 – $3000 approximately.
