The English Cocker Spaniel breed of dogs is friendly, kind, and sympathetic pets. They have an open character and love people very much, moreover, not only those with whom they live but also strangers. We can say that these dogs seem to be always happy by default, and rarely succumb to sadness, and in combination with love for people, they immediately try to make friends with everyone and convey to others a piece of their mood.
Several things can make them unhappy, and firstly, this is the absence of the owners for a long time. In other words, the animal is extremely difficult to endure long separation from its owner, family, and therefore it is better not to leave it alone for a long time. If you are going on a long vacation with the whole family, it is better to take the dog with you, it is better than leaving it with friends. Rudeness, injustice, beatings are the next factor.
Despite all the love for its owners, for its affectionate and kind character, sometimes stubbornness can appear in the breed. This is due to the fact that sometimes the dog does not see the reason to follow the command, and wants to act in its own way. There is no panacea here other than obedience training.
