Sprocker Spaniel Breed History. The Sprocker Spaniel is a dog breed that is not usually thought of as a hybrid or designer dog, even though they are made from two purebred dogs.
A sprocker is a hybrid dog breed created from the crossing of a springer spaniel and a cocker spaniel, so it is fair to say that if you can't pick between these two popular spaniel types, a sprocker provides the best of both worlds!
Introduction. Sprockers were created by crossing two pure breed spaniels, namely the Springer Spaniel and the Cocker Spaniel, but sometimes an American Cocker was used too. However, Sprockers are not "designer dogs" having bred as working dogs. Nor are they a "cross breed" because both parent breeds are spaniels.
The KC has 9 distinct Spaniel breeds recognised by them, Sprocker is not one of them. As it stands as a result it means that Sprockers cannot compete and makes a complete mockery of the history of Spaniels.
The Sprocker's size is generally dependent on it parents' size. As such, its height can range from 40-51 cm. Its weight ranges from 14-20 kg. Inheriting its handsome and proud looks from both its parent breeds, the Sprocker Spaniel has an athletic appearance.
Cocker spaniels are easygoing, cheerful, and playful dogs that make excellent pets. Fortunately, cocker spaniels are very easy to train, especially when they are trained as puppies. Training your cocker spaniel will require plenty of repetition, patience, and positive reinforcement.
Sprocker Spaniels are known to be active, alert, affectionate and extremely loyal dogs by nature, all of which are traits they have inherited from both parent breeds. These are just some of the reasons why they have earned themselves such a good reputation as working dogs and family pets.
