Cocker Spaniel was originally bred as a hunting dog. Their
job is to help the hunter find, flush, and retrieve upland game
birds. Despite the fact that their appearance has altered
significantly since the early days, our wonderful breed can still
hold it's own as a hunting companion.
to the efforts of a very active and dedicated Field Committee, the
abilities of the Cocker Spaniel as a hunting dog are acknowledged
and respected. The ASC is proud
of the video that two members of the field committee, Ruth Ginzburg
and Trish Jackson, developed, "Form Follows Function."
This video sets forth the precept that a properly structured dog
can perform its function in the field it was bred for.
