Wait.... there are CONS to owning a cocker???
They are pretty 'needy'. Lots of people call them velcro dogs - ie, they want to always be RIGHT THERE with you. Princess isnt content to go from room to room with me, she has to walk touching me. Marco liked to sleep touching both dh and myself and always sat on my feet whenever I was working in the kitchen. Teddy screams if he is left outside by himself beyond the length of time it takes to go potty. Not everyone appreciates this sort of 'togetherness'.
haha, I can totally agree with this..I only have to leave Jarvis 30 seconds to go get something out of my car, and when i return you'd think i had been gone a month!!!!!!...bathing, going to the toilet, going from room to room, and he is there like my shadow...I love it though, makes me feel wanted lol x
Haha Louise does that as well! I don't mind though.Cons? They can wake you up at 3AM because they got lost under the blankets they insisted on sleeping under.
... Or is that just Artemis?
I think the ears/grooming are the biggest considerations. If you can't dedicate the time to those aspects cockers aren't the dog for you.
