Though docile, the Golden Retriever and Cocker spaniel mix are affectionate, friendly and loving, just like both their parents. They share a great bond with their family members and might even be inclined to a particular member of the family or many of them. Since they have an amicable nature, the Golden Retriever Cocker Spaniel mix shares a great rapport with the members of kids as well as other dogs. They could either be like the Golden Retriever, having a good rapport with strangers or inherit the Cocker Spaniel’s trait and display a little wariness at the sight of an unfamiliar face. Though they have a calm nature, sudden or unfavorable noise might startle them.
These intelligent dogs would not be difficult to train provided they have a firm master to handle them well.
Good quality dry dog food is essential to help keep your dog in good shape. You can even add extra vitamins, proteins, and fat to its diet by giving it boiled, properly cooked vegetables and meat. However, consult the doctor once before doing so, and make sure you do not overfeed your pet.
