English Springer Spaniel / Cocker Spaniel Mixed Breed Dogs
Information and Pictures
Lacie the Sprocker Spaniel at 20 months old—"Lacie is a tricolor English Springer Spaniel / American Cocker Spaniel cross aka "Sprocker Spaniel." Her mother was a liver and white Springer Spaniel with a field coat. Her father was a blonde and white American Cocker with a thick, curly coat. So far, Lacie's coat is somewhere in between, but is tending toward her father's coat. Lacie is very energetic, fun-loving, affectionate and comical. She craves attention. She is quite obedient, but will watch for an opportunity to get away with something. She loves to play fetch, catch me if you can, Frisbee, splash in the water, run top speed, hunt bugs and rabbits in the yard, dig her favorite hole deeper every day and follow us every step through the house if we decide to move from one spot to another. She likes to cuddle, but can't sit still for long. Her bedroom is the guest bathroom which suddenly had a tunnel through the wall one night into the living room. She now sleeps in a crate so we have no more nighttime visits to the trash, which is where she ended up after the tunnel was completed. She's a real clown, but her brown eyebrows make her look very serious and concerned—especially if you are eating something. The only way to get her to slow down is to give her something yummy to gnaw on. Until, of course, she decides it needs to be thrown in the air and caught all over the room. Red Solo cups are fair game. If she gets one it will be thrown up in the air, run around all over and into everything until it is completely shredded. She seems to love the sound of it crashing into things. She loves squeaky toys and loves to tear up stuffed animals, including my daughter's toys that she might get a hold of. Lacie is not as large as her mother, but she is bigger than her father. She's a big, hairy comedienne with a touch of ADD."
The Sprocker Spaniel is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the English Springer Spaniel and the Cocker Spaniel. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

"Gypsy is a field type Sprocker Spaniel. Her dad is a working English Cocker Spaniel and her mom is an English Springer Spaniel. She is a very high strung dog and is happiest when she can chase her chicken friends. Although for some reason they don't seem to enjoy the game quite as much. She was born on Christmas Day. She loves to get into things. She will often go through my trash. This has led to her getting into a lot of trouble as she has gotten jars stuck on her head twice so far. She is very protective of me and hates to be left alone. When she was younger she would jump the fence to be with me whenever I left my yard. Fortunately this behavior was curbed early on."

Jake the Sprocker Spaniel at 17 months old—"My name is Jake and I am a Sprocker (Springer and Cocker Spaniel cross). I was born on 1st April 2011. I live in Essex with my dad, mum and our pet cat, Foobie. My hobbies are running, getting muddy and swimming in the sea, ponds and even large puddles. I also love playing with balls and digging holes in my garden. I am very friendly toward other dogs and people, but can get a little overexcited and tend to jump around a lot. Generally I am very affectionate and reasonably obedient, but I don't like walking on the lead so I pull until I am allowed to run free. I used to live with my uncle and auntie in Northamptonshire, but they couldn't cope with two young children and me as I do need quite a lot of exercise. I came to live in Essex when I was four months old and I like it here. There are lots of parks, water and best of all, mud. During the day I go to work with my mum and I spend my time sleeping, conserving my energy for playing ball in the garden and my long evening walk."

Cocker Spaniel Mixes: 30 Adorable Cocker Crossbreeds
The Cocker Spaniel is a popular dog with young families and elderly couples alike. Purebred Cocker Spaniels need about 60 minutes of daily exercise and lots of cuddles! This means you can expect much of the same from most Cocker Spaniel mixes. Most purebred Cockers are described as gentle, smart and happy. He is a small to medium-sized breed. Purebreds measure between 13 ½ to 15 ½ inches tall and weigh between 20 and 30 pounds.
He was originally bred to be a hunting dog. Focusing mainly on birds and woodcocks is his specialty, which is why he is called the Cocker. He is a separate breed from the English Cocker Spaniel. Ever since Disney’s hit ‘The Lady and the Tramp’, the Cocker Spaniel has always been one of America’s favorite breeds.
Ever since then we have mixed him with other breeds to create a variety of gorgeous puppies. Somewhere in this guide, you will find your perfect Cocker Spaniel hybrid match. Let’s find your canine companion!
Popular Cocker Spaniel Mixes
Just like any mixed dog breed, you need to understand that he could inherit the genes of either parent. This is why it is important that you like both breeds, instead of hoping that he might turn out like one parent over the other. You’ll never really know what your mix will look like until they age, but there’s a good chance you’ll get a coat and color combo of both parents. Cocker’s can be gold, or white with black or brown spots, so there’s a chance your pup may look like their Cocker Spaniel parent.
Many Cocker Spaniel mixes are so popular that they have been around for generations. With 2nd, 3rd and sometimes 4th generation pups their breed standard is more stable, such as the Cockapoo. Whereas the appearance and personality traits of rarer mixes will vary significantly because they are 1st generation pups. If you aren’t a fan of surprises you might want to stick to the more common mixes.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Poodle
The Cockapoo is one of the most popular designer dogs on the planet, and for good reason! This teddy bear mix comes in a wide variety of colors and has a medium length wavy coat. He is usually mixed with a miniature Poodle, but sometimes he is mixed with a toy or a standard Poodle. His height and weight can vary greatly depending on his Poodle parent’s size. So be sure to ask the breeder what you should expect.
He is a great option for families and loves young children, great-grandma, and everyone in between. He is a happy-go-lucky pooch who likes to get involved with all the family fun. This energetic livewire needs a lot of exercise so he should be placed with active families.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Labrador Retriever
This Cocker Spaniel mix is also half America’s favorite breed, so you know this guy is going to be a big deal. He has the friendliness of both of his parents, as well as his energy and sense of adventure. He will always be up for a game of fetch and will love the water. Full of intelligence and loyalty he is trainable and obedient. Aside from his high exercise needs he is a relatively low maintenance dog.
He will measure between 15 and 22 inches and weigh between 40 and 60 pounds. His body is thick and sporty looking. The Spanador’s tail will be thinner than his Lab parent’s otter tail. His ears will be longer with curlier hair, giving him a softer and cuter look.
Golden Cocker Retriever
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Golden Retriever
The Golden Cocker Retriever is a beautiful mix who is one of the friendliest and kindest canine souls you’ll ever meet. He is also a fantastic balance of energy and fun, so he is very popular with young families. He is also more compact than his Retriever parent, which is another appeal factor. As long as you spend time with him and exercise him daily for an hour, he will brighten up your days for sure.
He measures between 12 to 20 inches tall, and weighs between 30 to 65 pounds. His appearance can vary wildly between pups, even within the same litter. His coat length will usually be medium to long and wavy in texture.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Pomeranian
The Cockeranian is a pint-sized pooch who is one of the smallest mixes on this list, and he makes a great option for apartment living. But do not be fooled by his small size as he is a little pocket rocket! His main love is games, games and more games! He needs much more exercise than the average toy dog, so set aside 45 to 60 minutes everyday.
His coat is fluffy and soft like his Pom parent, with the curls of the Cocker parent. His coat will need daily grooming to keep it smooth. The Cockeranian’s ears can either stand to attention like the Poms, or droop down like the Cocker’s. He will weigh between 10 and 20 pounds and measure between 7 to 13 inches.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Chihuahua
Also known as the Chi-Spaniel, this little pooch is adorable. Don’t be fooled by his small frame though, because he is full of character and attitude. Less so than his Chihuahua parent, which is a big positive for those owners who aren’t a fan of his sometimes-overbearing Mexican parent. With his family he is affectionate and cuddly and will protect them if he feels the need to. He will crave your attention and become anxious if left alone for too long.
This guy is one of the smallest mixes on this list. He will usually weigh between 10 and 20 pounds and measure 8 to 13 inches tall. He will have erect triangle ears, beady little eyes and long wavy ears – he is an equal blend of both his parents.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & American Pitbull Terrier
The Spaniel Pit is another unexpected Pitbull mix. But this appeases those who find the Pitbull formidable in appearance or want a little more gusto than the Cocker. Highly intelligent, loyal and eager to please the Spaniel Pit is a dream to train. He needs to be socialized well, and don’t be surprised if he likes to torment the local cats. As with any Pit mix, be sure to check your local neighborhood laws or tenancy agreements.
The Spaniel Pit is lean in appearance with a squarer head. He may or may not inherit the longer wavy ears, but with the constant look of love in his eyes who really cares? He measures 14 to 18 inches tall, and weighs between 25 and 45 pounds.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Shih Tzu
The Cock-A-Tzu is a gentle pup with a side of cheeky! He is an energetic ball of fluff who loves a good romp in the garden. Followed by cuddles on the sofa. He is a little suspicious of strangers at first and will bark at incoming guests to warn you. He makes a great watchdog who can be a bit yappy. This is something to think about if you live somewhere with noise restrictions. He also craves human attention which is perfect if you are after a second shadow!
He will measure between 10 and 14 inches and weigh between 14 and 24 pounds. The Cock-a-Tzu requires daily brushing to smooth out his curls and tangles and has a medium-length silky coat.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Dachshund
With his big paddle paws, short legs and long body you’ll definitely know that he is a Dachshund mix. But with his long and wavy ears and more proportionate body you’ll know he’s not just your standard wiener. He will measure between 9 and 13 inches short and weigh somewhere around 25 pounds.
The Docker is an elegant and regal dog who commands all your attention. He is seriously energetic for a small guy and you’ll need to exercise him for at least 60 minutes a day come rain or shine. Otherwise expect him to put his paddle paws to destructive use. You also need to socialize him well due to his potential for over-protectiveness and fear-aggression. With his family he is super sweet and affectionate.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cockalier is possibly the most elegant pooch on this list, so if you are after a posh pup this could be your best bet. He loves to snooze in his master’s lap and receive all of the good-boy belly rubs. Cockaliers are gentle and friendly, and makes a great family addition for those seeking a kind companion for small children.
He is a small mixed dog who measures between 13 and 15 inches tall and weighs between 15 and 25 pounds. His coat will typically take on the tan and white colors of the Cavalier, with the odd splash of other colors known to both parents. His curly ears and little button eyes make this guy irresistibly cute.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Australian Shepherd
The Cotralian is a beautiful pup who usually looks like a miniature Australian Shepherd. His coat will sport the famous Aussie multi-colored patterning, and probably bright blue eyes. He will have shorter legs and longer wavier ears reminding you that he is a Cocker mix, as much as he’s an Aussie mix. He will measure between 14 and 18 inches tall and weigh between 30 and 50 pounds.
This seriously intelligent pup has both beauty and brains. He needs a lot of mental and physical stimulation every single day. He would make a great herding dog or hunting dog with the right training. This guy is not suited to anything other than a seriously active family. When the work is done, he will snuggle up to his family on the sofa and snore the evening away.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Beagle
If you are looking for a hunting companion look no further than the Bocker. With the agility of the Cocker and the nose of the Beagle, foxes and woodcock best run and hide! For this reason, you may want to keep him on a leash if you are just looking for a cute companion dog. He needs at least 60 minutes of exercise every day. This happy-go-lucky guy is adaptable to most homes and families. He loves to spend time chilling with his loved ones.
He will usually sport the hunting colors and markings of the Beagle and have a thick coat. The Bocker might just have the longest ears on this list too, similar to other Beagle mixed breeds. With his large eyes and chubby body, he is a very cuddly canine.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Border Collie
The Collie Cocker measures between 14 and 19 inches tall and he weighs between 24 and 45 pounds. He typically looks like a miniature Collie with the long and curly ears of the Spaniel. His coat will be medium length and usually black, brown and white in color with flecked patterning across his coat.
He is more energetic than the Spaniel and more graceful than the Collie. Collie Cockers need around 60 minutes of exercise every day, along with brain games for their intelligent mind. This pup loves cuddles with his family but can be shy around strangers. He might display herding skills (not to be allowed in the home!), or have a high prey drive, so you might need to keep this guy on a leash.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Bichon Frise
This is another teddy-bear lookalike who is adorable, no matter which parent he takes after. He typically takes on the lighter colors of the Bichon, and sometimes the black and white of the Cocker. His voluminous and wavy coat will need daily brushing to prevent it from matting. He will measure between 10 and 14 inches and weigh between 15 and 25 pounds.
He is a very playful pup who loves to get into mischief. Always looking to please his master, he is full of peppy character. He is also surprisingly very intelligent so you will need to invest in plenty of toys and brain games to keep him entertained. If he takes after his Bichon parent he’ll also be a master of circus tricks!
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Dalmatian
The Cockertian is a sprightly canine who loves to jump and frolic his day away. Flamboyant and full of character, this canine will keep you entertained for hours. He is smart, strong and full of stamina so if you are after a long-distance jogging partner this might be your guy! He can also be protective of his family, and he’ll make a great watchdog. This means you will need to socialize him well as a pup.
This Dalmatian crossbreed will measure between 15 and 20 inches tall and weigh between 35 and 50 pounds. His coat will be medium length with a kink to it. He will likely sport the black and white colors with black patches and spots. Like most of the breeds here, his ears will be long and wavy.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & American Eskimo
The Cock-A-Mo is a relatively new mix, thanks to the burst in popularity of the American Eskimo. He is a keen student and loves to learn new tricks. Although he is very intelligent his short attention span might make him difficult to train. Always friendly and happy, this guy is a doggy delight.
His coat will be long in length and will need regular brushing and trimming. To minimize the amount of Cock-A-Mo fluff around your house you will need to invest in a great de-shedding tool. His Eskimo parent comes in 3 sizes, so he could measure anywhere between 11 and 17 inches tall and weigh between 10 and 30 pounds. Always ask the breeder what size his Eskimo parent is.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Siberian Husky
The Siberian Cocker is another curious canine concoction, but his appearance is strikingly beautiful. He will look like a miniature Husky, but with a blend of traditional hunting dog features such as the narrower muzzle and leaner body. Siberian Cockers sometimes inherits the bright blue eyes of the Husky. They can possibly also inherit heterochromia, which is when your pup has two differently colored eyes. He will weigh between 30 and 50 pounds and measure between 15 and 20 inches tall.
Siberian Cockers are energetic and need at least 60 to 90 minutes of vigorous exercise every day. He will be friendly and sociable, but a bit less in your face than a Husky. You may also luck out, with your pup inheriting the comical talkative Husky voice which can provide hours of fun. Hopefully, he will inherit the intelligence and concentration of the Cocker Spaniel.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Jack Russell Terrier
This boy is bound to have a high prey drive, so it is wise that you keep him on his leash. Otherwise the sight or scent of a rat or woodcock will have him running faster than the speed of sound. This guy may be suited to a home with other dogs around, but no other pets please. Hopefully his Cocker genes will make him easier to train, but do not expect a fully obedient dog with this guy. His terrier tenacity and cheeky canine personality will keep you entertained for hours.
He will be similar in size to other Jack Russell Terrier mixes, and measure between 13 and 15 inches tall and weigh between 15 and 25 pounds. His coat will be short and thick, and likely to sport black, brown, white and tan colors.

He must be placed with a family who will work him or guarantee at least 90 minutes of intense exercise every day. When worked he will be happy to snooze with you or spend time alone, this guy won’t be too needy.
He will measure between 14 and 18 inches tall and weigh between 25 and 40 pounds. He will be lean, muscular and defined in his appearance. This makes him different from the other cuddlier mixes on this list. He will likely sport the darker browns, reds and blacks.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Maltese
The Silky Cocker is named because his fur is so soft and luxurious to touch. For it to be super silky he needs to be groomed every day, and his coat can matt easily if left for a few days. He usually takes the white and lighter colors, but he can sport black and brown too. He will measure between 9 and 13 inches tall and weigh between 10 and 20 pounds.
The Silky Cocker is known to wander off, so be sure to enclose your yard. Being affectionate is his main strength and would happily snooze the day away in your lap. He loves his family and hates to be alone, so he needs to be placed with a family that can spend most of their time with him.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Rottweiler
If you are seeking a cute little guard dog the Rottie Cocker is your dog. Full of the Rottie protective instinct he will always protect you and your family. Although he might not look scary, he’ll stand his ground and make plenty of noise to alert you. When he isn’t guarding he’ll be after a cuddle and craves human company. This guy is going to love his snacks, so keep them under lock and key!
He will typically inherit the black and tan coloring and markings of the Rottie. But with longer and wavier hair giving him the cute teddy bear look. He will measure between 15 and 22 inches tall and weigh between 40 and 80 pounds. He will be muscular, but differing from other Rottie mixes, he’s leaner than his Rottie parent.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Irish Setter
The Cocker Setter has got to be one of the most elegant Cocker Spaniel mixes on our list. If you are after a regal hound, the Cocker Setter has got you covered. Don’t mistake this for pompousness though, this hunting dog loves to get down and dirty hunting with his master too. After a rigorous exercise session, he’ll find the sunniest spot in the house and snooze all afternoon. He is super sweet-natured and makes a fantastic companion for children, just like many other Setter mixes.
He will usually take on the red colored coat which is long and wavy. His ears will be long, and typically lighter in color compared to the rest of his coat. He will measure between 15 and 22 inches tall and weigh between 30 and 60 pounds.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Schnauzer
The Schnocker is a wild and small bouncy breed that loves to have fun. Always up for a game of fetch or flyball, he makes the best park partner for both dogs and humans alike. He can be a loud barky and you might nickname him the shouty Schnocker, but this is part of his confident charm. Despite his larger than life personality, he is very tolerant of young children.
His parent is nearly always the miniature Schnauzer, just be sure to check with the breeder if you aren’t seeking a big dog. He will measure between 12 to 15 inches tall and weigh between 15 to 25 pounds. Like other Schnauzer mixes, he is lean and muscular under that long shaggy coat of his. His ears are floppy and wavy.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Vizsla

His coat is very likely to have the golden rust of the Vizsla coat too. He will weigh between 25 and 50 pounds and measure 15 to 21 inches tall.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Yorkshire Terrier
Most Corkies will inherit the best of both his parent’s traits. So, you can expect a happy and playful pup. He can get a little protective of his family and exhibit what is known as little dog syndrome, but with plenty of socialization this shouldn’t be a problem. Being a tiny pup, he may be better suited to families with older children.
The Corkie will measure between 8 and 12 inches tall and weigh between 10 and 20 pounds. His coat will be long in length. It will be fine and silky, maybe with a slight kink to it. As his Yorkie parent is hypoallergenic, he may be easier on those with allergies. But this is not guaranteed so do not rely on him being hypoallergenic.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Boxer
Sometimes known as the Bocker (but not to be confused with the other Bocker) this guy is one of the most comical Cocker Spaniel mixes. Full of life, energy and smiles for everyone he is bound to bring entertainment. He loves to be the center of attention and is super sociable.

Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & English Bulldog

His Bulldog genes help to mellow this guy out, which is great if you are after a snooze buddy. He will need around 30 to 45 minutes of moderate exercise every day, but he will spend more time sleeping and eating if you let him.
He will look more like the Cocker Spaniel but with a sturdier appearance. His coat will be short and require minimum grooming, just watch out for his skin folds. He might inherit a flatter face compared to the Cocker, and with this comes the potential for the brachycephalic health concerns. He will measure between 13 and 15 inches and weigh between 30 and 40 pounds.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & French Bulldog
The French Cocker is likely to have the flatter face of his French parent, which could mean he inherits the brachycephalic health problems.

He will measure between 12 and 14 inches and weigh between 20 and 30 pounds. It is likely that he will look muscular and square, but with a softer appearance like his Cocker parent.

With big bug eyes and a curled longer tail, he will weigh between 15 and 25 pounds and measure between 11 and 14 inches tall. His thick coat will be short to medium in length and can be straight or wavy.
Breeds: Cocker Spaniel & Springer Spaniel
This Cocker Spaniel mix is one of the most likely, because his parents are very similar and from similar parentage. This makes him a great option for those who do not like the uncertainty of mixed breeds. The Cocker Springer makes a reliable hunting dog who loves to spend time outdoors with his master. Followed by a cuddling session in front of the fire. Very affectionate and friendly, he makes a great canine sibling for children.
He will measure between 14 and 19 inches tall and weigh between 25 and 45 pounds. He will be an equal blend of both parents. His head will be domed with the long wavy ears. His coat will be long and feathery, which will need daily grooming to keep it dirt free from his adventures.

However, if they are left on their own for hours on end, this pup will succumb to boredom quite easily and take up bad behaviors, such as chewing. So, Sprocker Spaniels will do best in a home where there is always a pet parent around to play with.
While these dogs are good with kids, playtime between them and your young tots should always be supervised.
Does This Breed Get Along with Other Pets?
Absolutely! Sprocker Spaniels love to play with other dogs and, while curious about the family cat at first, will make fast friends with her. However, as with other working dog breeds, your Sprocker Spaniel may be inclined to chase the cat now and then. So, just keep a watchful eye on their interactions.
It’s important to note that as with any other breed of dog, early socialization is a must for your Sprocker Spaniel. Enroll her in puppy classes, take her to a dog park, or walk her around the neighborhood to get her accustomed to other dogs from a young age.
Things to Know When Owning a Sprocker Spaniel
Understanding your Sprocker Spaniel’s temperament is only the first step in understanding if this breed is right for you and your family. Here are some other need-to-know items before you take the plunge and bring a Sprocker Spaniel puppy home.
Food & Diet Requirements 🦴
When you bring your Sprocker Spaniel puppy home, your breeder will most likely give you a feeding schedule for her. You should do your best to stick to the same routine and feed her the same food to avoid an upset stomach.
Your new pup needs to be fed a high-quality, highly nutritious food in order to correctly grow and develop. As a rule of thumb, feed your pup three to four times per day. Once she is 11 months, she can be switched over to adult dog food.
The amount of food you will feed your adult Sprocker Spaniel will depend upon her weight and activity level. Always check with your vet about the proper amounts to give her.
Sprocker Spaniel dogs are highly intelligent and high-energy canines. As such, they need efficient amounts of mental stimulation and physical activity to ensure they’re both happy and healthy. Your Sprocker Spaniel needs about 60 to 80 minutes of vigorous playtime every day. This can include a brisk jog, a romp in the backyard, or a game of tug-of-war inside.
Since your dog is extremely smart, she needs to be challenged almost daily. Working breeds thrive on tasks. So be sure to keep her busy with chores! Teach her to fetch your slippers or the morning newspaper. Invest in some doggie puzzles to keep her entertained. Just be sure that she gets the mental stimulation she needs to keep boredom at bay.
Thanks to their two intelligent parent breeds, the Sprocker Spaniel is an easy-to-train dog. She always aims to please, so using positive reinforcement training methods is always best. Clicker training is a great way to quickly teach your Sprocker Spaniel basic and advanced tricks.
A Sprocker Spaniel trait that you’ll soon pick up on after a training session or two is that she can suffer from selective hearing. While this stubborn streak is easy to deal with, her ability to pick up bad behavior should be monitored carefully. Due to her high intelligence, she can easily pick up bad habits if left to her own accord.
Sprocker Spaniels thrive on the one-on-one attention they get during their training sessions with you. However, you should aim to show her new tricks to keep her interest.
Because of their long, flowing coats, Sprocker Spaniel dogs need to be groomed daily. You should pay close attention to their bellies, paws, and ears where the long hair can easily get knotted or tangled.
Health and Conditions 🏥
- Progressive Retinal Atrophy
- Hip Dysplasia
Your Sprocker Spaniel can suffer some of the same health problems as her parent breeds can. This can include Progressive Retinal Atrophy, which will lead to blindness, allergies, and Hypothyroidism, which can cause your pup to gain weight and feel lethargic.
It’s important to routinely schedule check-ups with your vet in order to keep your Sprocker Spaniel feeling her best during the duration of her lifetime.
Male vs Female
Female Sprocker Spaniels tend to be calmer and more sensitive and affectionate than their male counterparts. Males are oftentimes less needy and more independent. The females are also smaller in height and weight.
The Sprocker Spaniel hybrid dog is a well-rounded and adorable designer dog for any type of family. While they tend to be a bit high maintenance when grooming is concerned, they are friendly, lively, and fun-loving companions for people of all ages.
If you do decide to get a Sprocker Spaniel, ensure that she gets a lot of attention, playtime, and is thoroughly socialized and trained from a young age.
Overall, this spirited Spaniel mix is a great dog that will be a devoted companion for her entire life.
