Cocker Spaniels are one of the world’s best-loved breeds.
The smallest member of the sporting Spaniel group, the Cocker Spaniel was traditionally used as a hunting dog.
However, in the 21st century, they make much-loved family pets.
Although these dogs were thought to have originated in Spain, they were registered as a breed by the Kennel Club in England in 1940 and by the American Kennel Club in 1946.
Cocker Spaniels have proven popular dogs amongst celebrities around the world, with England and Manchester United legend David Beckham the proud owner of three Cocker Spaniels.
