So far the best fit we found is the Springer or Cooker Spaniel and we are leaning towards the Springer. Love the look, size and the temperament seems to be a good fit

My wife used to have a cocker spaniel excellent dog very loyal absouletly brilliant with kids and not so hyper as the springer (which is really more of a gun/hunting dog). If it was me I would go with the cocker over the springer Kev.

I completly agree that cocker are fantastic dogs If your Cocker was in England it would most likley have been an english cocker which is a different breed then an American cocker spanial (Night and day difference) which seem to be the normal type you see in NA .

I dog i had (Darby) was an English cocker , he was an exellent hunting dog and companion . If I was half the person Darby was I would be twice the man I am.

OOOpps sorry Kyle is right ours was an English Cocker and not an American dog. I forget where I am sometimes but you should be able to get English Cockers here shouldn't you Kyle?
If so do you know any repuatable dealers? Dave.

The only time that our dog (Carla) would bark was if someone knocked at the door (isn't thats what there susposed to do) other than that you wouldn't know she was there. As Kyle said they are excellent companions and very loyal and a cocker spaniel (english) would be in my opinion the perfect choice for you and your family. Have a look here http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/englishcocker.htm Kev

Did Darby? (second picture sure looks like Darby). No they are not bark happy dogs as a whole , lots of owners of any breed have yappy dogs because they let them or have no idea as to how to deal with it. Darby was well mannered.

Dave I do happen to know of some breeders and i actually know an exceptional breeder of working dogs in Regina , are you interested in an English Cocker again?

Maybe Kyle my Staffy (English) is 12 now and riddled with skin cancer Sam is going to the vets on friday he has a huge tumour on his hind leg that we are going to see about having removed but he also has around 8-10 more on his body all of which are growing daily. The one on his hind leg was around the size of an egg about a month ago now it is the same size as the top of his leg!! We already had 6 tumours removed off of his body last year so I don't know if it is really fair to him to keep on putting him through these operations. So I am going to discuss with the vet the best avenue to take and what will be the best outcome for Sam.
I am not to sure about getting another dog but Jayne will probably want another and she keeps talking about Carla so you never know.

doesnt matter if they bark to much you just have to train them that it is not acceptable to bark all the time. I had two samoyeds and they only barked when someone new came around and same with my border collie.

Just seams the smaller the dog the more noise it has to make.
