History of the breed:
The English Cocker is one of the oldest breeds of British spaniels. It was recognized as a full-fledged breed in 1873, the year the Kennel Club was founded. Its origin is rather fuzzy even if it has always been acquired that this dog comes from England. A born hunter, the English Cocker had particularly distinguished himself as a woodcock. Its name “cocker” comes from the English word “woodcock” which means woodcock. Paul Gaillard introduced it to Europe at the end of the 19th century. The breed standard was set in 1901.
