American Cocker Spaniel - genetic tests

Big dark eyes, sweet expression, long, lush ears that are so inviting to touch - no wonder that Cocker was for many years the most popular breed in America. Cocker is the AKC's smallest sporting spaniel, growing to about 35-40 centimetres in height. The coat has enough colors and patterns to satisfy any breeder's taste. The balanced body is sturdy and strong, and these fast and durable gundogs move with a graceful and easy gait. They make good playmates for children and are easy to train as companions and sporting dogs. These energetic athletic dogs love playtime and brisk walks.
