About Cocker Spaniels
Playful, affectionate and lively, the Cocker Spaniel has been lovingly nicknamed “merry cocker”. The breed has been present in literature and art for almost 500 years, and more recently, in popular films and TV shows.
The most famous of all Cocker Spaniels is probably Lady, from Disney’s The Lady and the Tramp. In the film, she is initially portrayed as standoffish and aloof, though in reality the Cocker Spaniel is one of the friendliest breeds and, socialised correctly, is great with strangers, other animals and children. The breed is popular in the world of celebrity and famous owners include Elton John, Martin Clunes and HRHs the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, whose black Cocker Spaniel Lupo is apparently unpopular with the Queen's corgis!
Why buy pet insurance for your Cocker Spaniel?
While generally considered to be a healthy breed, Cocker Spaniels can be prone to some hereditary diseases including hip dysplasia, patellar lunation, canine dilated cardiomyopathy, cancer and heart murmurs. Due to their long ears, they can also suffer from ear infections, and so cleaning and checking their ears regularly in very important. Pet insurance can help with the cost of vet treatment if your Cocker Spaniel is affected by conditions like these.
