The Cocker Spaniel
Care and Training for Home and Sport
With many readers coming to cockers for the first time, this book offers complete guidance for their very earliest care and training at home, and then introduces both cockers and their owners to a range of different activities and competitions.
Drawing on more than a quarter of a century's experience with cockers, the author takes you on a wonderful journey from the moment your puppy arrives home to the day that you start enjoying sports and activities together. The Cocker Spaniel covers every aspect of cockers, from the history of the breed to healthcare and problem-solving guides.
Reviews for The Cocker Spaniel
Wow! What a most pleasant surprise this book was. From cover to cover it includes a swag of useful and sensible information that a new cocker owner should know. But Menzies doesn’t stop there; she has also included valuable tips on field training which usually only come after years and years of field experience. An easy read which would be enjoyed by all spaniel enthusiasts.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has recently acquired, or intends to acquire a Cocker Spaniel. It is ideal for a person who is looking for guidance to take them through puppyhood, basic training and even on to the dizzy heights of advanced training, competitions and field trials.
