The Sprocker Spaniel is bred from the English Springer Spaniel and Cocker Spaniel and sometimes the American Cocker Spaniel. A Sprocker pup can have a Springer Mum and a Cocker Dad or the other way round. A Springer bred with a Sprocker or a Cocker bred with a Sprocker or even a Sprocker bred with a Sprocker will always produce Sprocker pups.
It's these possibilities that produce such a wide range of colours, shapes and sizes amongst Sprockers and whilst a Sprocker pup may favour either their Springer or Cocker heritage a Sprocker usually has the traits of both parent Spaniel types.
The result is a handsome Spaniel who can be an excellent dual purpose working dog and a happy, loyal family pet. The popularity of the Sprocker continues to grow and we estimate that there are between 5000 & 10,000 Sprockers in the UK.
