Questions & Answers
For that answer, we have to go way back to 14th-century Spain (from which we get their name), where Spaniel hunting dogs were first found. The modern-day Cocker Spaniels also owe their heritage to 19th-century England, where the Cocker Spaniel variety was first bred, named for their considerable skills in hunting woodcocks.
As the top Cocker Spaniel breeders in Columbus and beyond can tell you, Cocker Spaniels are sensitive. They may experience some separation anxiety from their littermates, and you could have crying for the first few nights. To ease the transition, set up a consistent feeding schedule and immediately create a regular sleeping space to give a sense of stability.
Just browse through the site until a Cocker Spaniel for sale in Columbus catches your eye. Search beyond Columbus with our national network of breeders and companies. Chat with the pup’s breeder. With your questions answered -- about health, history, and more -- you can talk about transportation. Soon that adorable puppy will be in your home!
Absolutely not. The breeders and companies in our network would never lower their standards to compete in price with puppy mills and backyard breeders. And that "bargain" puppy you might find is no bargain at all. Dogs that come from untrained and unethical breeders are prone to health and behavioral issues, which will cost in frustration and future veterinary bills.
All of the Columbus Cocker Spaniel breeders and companies in our network offer complete "nose-to-tail" health checks. These thorough exams cover eyes, ears, mouths, teeth, and more, as well as examinations of respiratory, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular systems. It's one of the hallmarks that sets Uptown apart from others and ensures you'll get a healthy pup!
Yes. As you can probably guess from their smallish size (between 20 and 35 pounds as adults), any Cocker Spaniel puppies for sale Columbus breeders and businesses are offering won't need expansive living space. Most aren't big barkers, and those that do can be trained to heed the "quiet" command -- so disturbing nearby neighbors won't likely be an issue!
That is an option and we’re not aniti-shelter. We offer something different. And the Cocker Spaniel puppies Columbus shelters have, if they have them, probably don't come from the very best Cocker Spaniel breeders Columbus has, like the pups featured on Uptown. We offer levels of service and information, such as health and behavioral history, that shelters can't match.
There are two main types of Cocker Spaniels: American and English Cocker Spaniels. While they have a shared heritage, they differ in appearance. Slightly larger, English Cocker Spaniels usually have longer ears, longer snouts, and medium-length coats. American Cocker Spaniels often have coats with more feathering, more rounded heads, and bigger eyes.
They are a fairly easy breed to train. Any Cocker Spaniel for sale Columbus breeders and companies feature on our site will almost surely be a people-pleaser. Add in high intelligence and you have a pooch who is willing and able to heed commands. Experts recommend you begin recall training as early as six months old!
As they're active canines, Cocker Spaniels can use lots of protein to meet their energy needs. So any Cocker Spaniel Columbus breeders and businesses may tempt you to take home will do well with a diet of high-quality kibble with a protein content of about 20%. And while Cocker Spaniels are experts at begging for treats, keep them to less than 10% of their diets.
