| English Cockers are one of seven major breeds of English Spaniels classified in the 1800's. Spaniels similar to the English Cocker have existed in England for centuries. English Cockers were considered identical to Springer Spaniels except for size until they were recognized as different breeds by the Kennel Club of England in 1892. The word Cocker comes from the woodcocks that Cocker Spaniels were originally bred to hunt. Because of its happy disposition, the English Cocker Spaniel is nicknamed the 'Merry' Cocker.
