Basic Difference Between Cockers and Springers

I remember when I started working my first cocker, I used to keep sending her back over the same ground because I felt she hadn't covered it properly at the rate of knots she seemed to move.

After a while I realised that she never found anything or flushed anything when I sent her back that second time, then the penny dropped!

Good one Tom.
Similar to the difference between a spaniel and a labrador.
Labs are born half trained and spaniels die half trained.
There will be a place for you on our shoot next season to work that super little dog if you want.
That's an auld wives tale HP, lol.

Had a springer off good stock that was totally untouched at 2 1/2years old. Thought she would be the challenge of a lifetime. She turned out to be the easiest dog to train ever. Just wanted to please :love: She was a lovely lass.

OK, I'm currently spoiled rotten with one of Simon's retirees and another due next January...Springer bliss. Brilliantly obedient dogs but still extremely tactile, affectionate and full of the joys of life.
