Recommended Posts

Interested in owning a cocker or a cocker cross(size wise mainly),it will only be used for bushing as you would a terrier

 

Anything i need to consider when choose a breed,im open to any ideas(dog will not be shot over)

I'm a cocker man, tney've got brains.But if you want a dog purely for hunting get a springer :thumbs: .Springers will hit cover hard and will hunt all day, cockers will hunt hard if you put the training in.If not you'll end up with a shit dog, if it's young enough i'll give you £25 :thumbs:

i get offered a few springers that have grown out of the family at about 6/12 months every year.put your feelers out and you could get one that just needs working for free and well bred also.

No difference in the 2.

 

Both Springers and Cockers hunt in pretty much the same way but you should ask yourself one thing.

 

'Why would someone with a good cocker or springer cross it with something other than the same breed?' you certainly dont get a better dog.

 

Im a cocker person but they will both do the job

 

(if the sprocker is cheap and both parents are actually decent working dogs then there is nothing wrong with one but o wouldnt have one)

Never had a cocker or a sprocker but their is some small strains of springers about if you can drop on one that would suite you for bushing work.

both cocker and small springers or sprocker will work cover,not much difference between the three for bushing,all head strong but when trained are brilliant dogs
