Most Cocker Spaniels are healthy dogs, though like all breeds, some dogs will face hip dysplasia and eye disease. They’re also known to be a little bit sensitive to excitement and sometimes pee when they’re excited or nervous. Check their ears every week too—their ears are long and beautiful, but also prone to ear infections.
They have a ton of gorgeous hair, which is part of their beauty, but it’s also quite a bit of work. Plan to get your pup groomed once a month and brush their locks a few times a week to prevent matting.
