There are two modern breeds of cocker spaniel, the English Cocker Spaniel and the American Cocker
Spaniel. They were bred as gun dogs; to use their sense of smell to cover low areas near the handler in
order to flush birds into the air to be shot, and to use their eyes and nose to locate the bird once
downed, and then to retrieve the bird with a soft mouth. The major differences between the English and
American varieties is that the American is smaller with a shorter back, a domed head and a shorter
muzzle, while the English variety is taller with a narrower head and chest.

Cocker spaniels coats come in a variety of colors including black, liver, red and golden in solids. There
are also black and tan, and sometimes liver and tan, as well as a variety of color mixtures of those solid
colors including roans, roan and tans, tricolors and those solid colors with additional white markings.

Rare colors can appear unexpectedly in certain lines, for instance while an all-white cocker is usually
bred by selective breeding of very light golden strains, they can still appear very uncommonly to parents
who are dark colored.

In its native United States, the American Cocker Spaniel was ranked the 23rd most popular breed
according to registration statistics of the AKC in 2009, a decrease in popularity since 1999 when it was
ranked 13th. For twenty five years the American Cocker Spaniel was the most popular dog in America. It
was ranked number one first in 1936 prior to the English Cocker Spaniel being recognized as a separate
breed, and held onto the spot until 1952 when Beagles became the most popular dog. It regained the
spot in 1983 and held on at number one until 1990
