English Cocker Spaniel
Cockers are renowned for their stubborn temper but can be easily trained and make a good medium-sized family pet. They will often bond strongly to an individual person in a family.

Cockers are noted for their optimism, intelligence and adaptability. The breed is extremely loyal and affectionate, bonding very well with the family members. It has been proposed that there is a link between coat colour and temperament. This link could be the colour pigment melanin, which is bio chemically similar to chemicals that act as transmitters in the brain.

Cocker Spaniel behavior has been studied in more detail than any other breed.
