Dog Kennel Cough
I was attending an English Cocker Spaniel Dog with acough. It seems that it had been in a dog for a month when it came down with the cough. Normally the English Cocker Spaniel is an alert, compactly built, medium-sized dog with long ears, reaching at least to the nose when pulled forward. The dark oval eyes should have a melting yet intelligent expression. The chest is very deep and well developed, but not wide enough to interfere with efficient movement. The tail is generally docked. The feet are round and cat-like with tight, arched toes. There are two types of English Cocker: field and show. The field types have shorter coats. Many colors are admissible, but on solid color white is acceptable only on the chest. The English Cocker Spaniel is a hardy, energetic, merry and lovable, sweet and affectionate dog. This lively dog is excellent with kids: gentle and playful, but does not tolerate teasing well. It is sociable with strangers, a moderate barker, and obeys respectfully the orders it is given. A superior companion dog. Generally an outgoing breed, but some individuals can be reserved. Temperament varies widely, research individual lines. Some bitches are fairly dominant and should not be placed with a non-dominant owner. Males tend to be more cooperative. Field lines may be too active to make good pets. Cockers should be trained very gently, but firmly, as they are sensitive but also independent and intelligent. They can do well with cats in the household.
