Cocker Spaniel is one of the oldest breeds in the world. Some sources say that similar dogs were already known in Carthage and in the seventh and eighth centuries were popular in Spain. In the eighteenth century spaniels were divided into 3 groups: Springer Spaniel, Water Spaniel and the Cocker Spaniel. For the eighteenth century their physical characteristics weren’t important.
