Also known as the Mini English Docker, this hybrid breed has a unique parentage! A combination of the Dachshund and the English Cocker Spaniel, this designer pooch is loyal and loving. They are not a breed that requires a great deal of activity in order to be happy; they also do not become bored easily. However, both parent breeds have an innate desire to hunt, so you'll want to plan activities which harness this ability in the breed. A word of caution - the designer dog may inherit the elongated spine of the Dachshund parent, so you'll want to be sure that you avoid activities that can place a great deal of impact on the body. Learning tricks or participating in agility or obstacle courses is a fun and sensible way to provide activity for this pup.
The Mini English Cocker is the perfect mix of two awesome companion dogs - the Dachshund and the English Cocker Spaniel. This designer pooch loves nothing more than to spend time nestled beside you. However, this pup can also be quite fun as you play together. Encourage nose work both indoors and outside to mentally stimulate this breed. Learn a few tricks and commands together. The opportunities for fun are endless with the Mini English Cocker.
