A golden cocker is a designer dog bred by crossing a golden retriever and cocker spaniel. The cocker spaniel portion of the mix can come from either English or American cocker spaniels.
The golden cocker grows to be about 50 to 60 pounds as an adult. It has a long coat of golden hair and is easy to care for. The golden cocker is an intelligent and active dog that needs a lot of space to run and jump. Golden cockers learn new tasks quickly and enjoy helping their masters around the house. If golden cockers aren't trained and kept busy, they often become mischievous.
