Gun Dog Breeders: Puppy Tips to Get New English Cocker Spaniel Owners Started

By    |   Friday, 11 Mar 2016 06:36 PM

English cocker spaniels are happy dogs (hence their nickname merry cockers) and will be loyal to an attentive family, but adult pooches are quite different from young pups, and prospective owners should do their research before choosing to adopt a gun dog from this breed. If you’ve recently brought a young English cocker spaniel into your home you’ll want to read up on how to make the transition as easy and painless as possible for both you and the dog.

For starters, make sure you have time to devote to house breaking the puppy. The website English Cocker Spaniel Breeders advised making sure that someone is home during the daytime hours to help care for a young dog. They say it will be tough on the pup if they aren’t taken out for regular bathroom breaks, and forced to relieve themselves in a crate or somewhere else in your household.

The site also noted that you’ll want to lock up any food you don’t want your English cocker spaniel to get into because they love a good treat and enjoy getting into mischief. They need supervision, particularly early in life, and you may need to rearrange your kitchen to keep edibles out of reach.

As Pet Wave puts it, the English cocker spaniel is an energetic dog that needs a fair amount of exercise. Don’t bring this type of pooch in your home if you don’t have the room for him to run and the time to devote to taking long walks or jogs. If you don’t help them burn off their energy, they’ll find ways to do it themselves. Likely you’ll find them engaging in some rambunctious behavior if you’ve left them to their own devices, so get that puppy moving.

There are some diseases and conditions that English Cocker Spaniels are more susceptible to, so you’ll want to keep an eye on your growing puppy to make sure they don’t require medical attention. Quite often this breed develops eye conditions of varying concern that may not surface until they’re older. Watch for changes in their behavior or growth to make sure your new best friend stays as healthy as possible.
