In short chapters, readers learn what cocker spaniels are like, their coat and color, size, care, feeding, things they need, and about puppies. The text is easy to read and photographs are focused and well-chosen to accompany each topic. Other dog books in the series are: German Shepherds, Dalmatians, Mutts, Labrador Retrievers, and Poodles. These books provide a basic introduction to the breeds, especially if one is looking for a suitable pet. A glossary, index and ABDO website are provided in the back.
