American Cocker Spaniel Dog Breed
 

American Cocker Spaniels

The Spaniel family is a large one, of considerable antiquity. As far back as 1368 we find mention of the Spanyell, which came to be divided into two groups, the land spaniel and the water spaniel. A further division separated the land spaniels on a basis of size, when the "cockers" and the very small or toy spaniels were separated from the spaniels of larger dimensions. The Cockers retained their early classification as sporting dogs. That is why they are called the smallest member of the sporting group.
