Appearance

The Sprocker Spaniel has a fairly specific appearance since they’re bred from two types of spaniel dogs that share a lot of the same characteristics. However when they are puppies there can be differences in their looks and personality. A very proud dog, they have wide set eyes. These give them an alert and intelligent gaze. They have long ears like any spaniel, with wide nostrils. Normally their nose matches the colour of their coat or markings. An athletic breed, with muscular front legs, which helps with their role of being a working breed.

Normally the Sprocker can have one of three eye colours, blue, hazel or brown with the nose colour either black or brown.

Breed maintence

The Sprocker Spaniel has the most beautiful smooth fur, however it does require a lot of care to stay that way. They should be brushed daily the ears, belly, legs and paws, needing more care as they’re more likely to get knots and tangles. Their teeth need brushing weekly as this will prevent gum and tooth decay. They should often have their nails clipped as allowing them to grow too long can cause discomfort. However their isn’t a specific time frame to do this. As an active and working breed they often wear down their nails quicker.
The final tip is to once a week clean their ears to stop any infections from occurring, this should be done with great care.

Activity Requirements

As they’re an active breed they will not suit lifestyles in places like apartments and flats, they need to be kept busy due to their high energy levels. They suit a home with lots of space to run around or in the countryside where they can have long walks. They need to have around 60 – 80 minutes of intense exercise every day. The more exercise the Sprocker Spaniel has the happier and content they’ll be.
