Today's Chicago Cocker Spaniel puppies for sale owe their heritage to lands across the Atlantic -- to Spaniels from Spain, from which they get their name. The Cocker Spaniel variety has roots in 19th-century England, where the hunting dogs were named “Cocker” for their ability to flush out woodcocks.
That's an option, and we're not anti-shelters as reputable ones do good work. But keep in mind that any Cocker Spaniel puppies Chicago shelters have, if you can find one, will probably not come with pertinent information like health and behavioral history that our network's pro breeders and businesses offer. It just depends on what you want.
Many puppies initially get a little homesick for littermates and mothers, and Cocker Spaniels are more sensitive than most, so a little crying is normal. Maybe for a few nights. To help them ease into their new home it's good to set a routine for feeding and set them up in a regular space to sleep. A cuddly toy, dim nightlight, and soft music can put them at ease.
No. For that, you have to go to breeders and pet shops with the lowest of standards. Any Cocker Spaniel puppies for sale Chicago breeders and businesses offer through our site come at fair prices that are in line with the high level of expertise our network members have, and the utmost humane care they give.
No. But they're often one-half of designer dogs! A designer dog, also known as a hybrid, is a mix of two different purebred dogs. So if you cross a Cocker Spaniel with a Beagle you get a Bocker. Combine a Cocker Spaniel with a Labrador Retriever and you get a Spanador. And a Corkie? That's a mix of a Cocker Spaniel and a Yorkshire Terrier.
The breeders and businesses in the Uptown network offer "nose-to-tail" health examinations. So you can be sure that any Cocker Spaniel for sale Chicago breeders and businesses offer through us can have their ears, eyes, mouth, and skin, as well as systems including respiratory and gastrointestinal systems thoroughly examined.
Yes. As Cocker Spaniel breeders in Chicago know, the breed is small to medium size and so can fit comfortably into limited living spaces. And barking that would disturb close neighbors isn't often an issue with Cocker Spaniels. But Chicago Cocker Spaniel breeders would advise to get them outside regularly for exercise, preferably for an hour a day.
It should go pretty smoothly. Often recall training can start as early as six months old with the Cocker Spaniels for sale Chicago breeders and businesses might just tempt you into bringing home. Cocker Spaniels are smart and thrive on pleasing people, and so respond well to positive training. Negative reinforcement won't get great results with sensitive Cocker Spaniels.
As the top Cocker Spaniel breeders Chicago has can tell you, that depends on the variety.

American Cocker Spaniels are slightly smaller, with heights of 12 or 13 inches and weighing between 25 and 30 pounds.
