Cocker Spaniel Mixes: 30 Adorable Cocker Crossbreeds
The Cocker Spaniel is a popular dog with young families and elderly couples alike. Purebred Cocker Spaniels need about 60 minutes of daily exercise and lots of cuddles! This means you can expect much of the same from most Cocker Spaniel mixes. Most purebred Cockers are described as gentle, smart and happy. He is a small to medium-sized breed. Purebreds measure between 13 ½ to 15 ½ inches tall and weigh between 20 and 30 pounds.
He was originally bred to be a hunting dog. Focusing mainly on birds and woodcocks is his specialty, which is why he is called the Cocker. He is a separate breed from the English Cocker Spaniel. Ever since Disney’s hit ‘The Lady and the Tramp’, the Cocker Spaniel has always been one of America’s favorite breeds.
Ever since then we have mixed him with other breeds to create a variety of gorgeous puppies. Somewhere in this guide, you will find your perfect Cocker Spaniel hybrid match. Let’s find your canine companion!
Popular Cocker Spaniel Mixes
Just like any mixed dog breed, you need to understand that he could inherit the genes of either parent. This is why it is important that you like both breeds, instead of hoping that he might turn out like one parent over the other. You’ll never really know what your mix will look like until they age, but there’s a good chance you’ll get a coat and color combo of both parents. Cocker’s can be gold, or white with black or brown spots, so there’s a chance your pup may look like their Cocker Spaniel parent.
Many Cocker Spaniel mixes are so popular that they have been around for generations. With 2nd, 3rd and sometimes 4th generation pups their breed standard is more stable, such as the Cockapoo. Whereas the appearance and personality traits of rarer mixes will vary significantly because they are 1st generation pups. If you aren’t a fan of surprises you might want to stick to the more common mixes.

Just like the parent, the Chihuahua, this dog has a lot of character and attitude. When living with a family, this dog is affectionate and tends to crave attention. Also, if left alone for extended periods, the dog gets anxious.
The Cockerhua is one of the smallest Cocker Spaniel mixes. It typically weighs between 10 and 20 pounds and grows to 8 to 13 inches tall. The dog takes up physical traits from both parents, such as long wavy ears and little eyes.
Getting a Cocker Spaniel mix is a pretty straightforward process. These breeds come in various colors and varieties. However, before settling on one option, it’s best to know the background of both parents. During cross-breeding, you might not get all the traits you expect; therefore, it’s essential to confirm with the breeder that the parents are healthy.
You can organize with the breeder to test for diseases and disorders that are prevalent in the breeds. As you get that Cocker Spaniel mix, ensure they fit your lifestyle and needs.

Do you want to add a Spaniel mix to your family?
There are three types of purebred Spaniel: The Springer, Cocker, and King Charles Spaniel.
But breeders are starting to breed Spaniel crossbreeds—with some of these so-called “designer dogs” set to be more popular than their crossbreed relatives.
Each mix has their own personality, temperament, and appearance. How do you know which is the perfect crossbreed for your family?
In this guide, we’ll share 7 of the most popular Spaniel crossbreeds (and the differences between each), including:
- Sprocker Spaniel

1. Sprocker Spaniel
Mix between: Springer + Cocker Spaniel.
There’s lots of debate on whether the Sprocker Spaniel is a crossbreed.
One argument says a Sprocker is the purest form of Spaniel; the one closest to the original land Spaniel.
There was only one type of Spaniel originally. Breeders separated them into two—the Springer and Cocker Spaniels—based on their size. They continued to evolve into the two distinctly different Spaniel breeds we see today. A Sprocker is a mix of both Spaniel types, hence why it’s the closest breed to the original land Spaniel.
However, some say it’s still a cross between two different breeds, so they should be considered a Spaniel mix.
Sprockers are fun, energetic, and take great qualities from both the Springer and Cocker Spaniels. (Some can be even crazier than a working Springer.)
You’ll need lots of time to dedicate to training, exercise, and stimulation if you’re thinking of bringing home a Sprocker puppy.
Here’s my Sprocker Spaniel puppy, Hugo:
Mix between: Cocker Spaniel + Poodle.
Cockapoos are growing in popularity all over the world. In fact, they’re the most popular crossbreed dog in the UK.
Why? Because a Cockapoo is a fantastic companion dog. Their Cocker Spaniel DNA makes them energetic; their Poodle side makes them incredibly easy to train. It’s two of the smartest dog breeds combined.
But, just like any crossbreed, their appearance can range dramatically. You might have a tiny Cockapoo that looks like their Poodle parent, or have large floppy ears and a traditional Spaniel nose.
Plus, Cockapoos come in all sorts of colors—including cream, sable, black, and brown.
The Cockapoo is a great, all-round family dog if you’re looking for a Spaniel that isn’t as crazy as a Sprocker or purebred. They’re happy to run around, but also know when to relax.
Mix between: Spaniel + Labrador.
Another Spaniel crossbreed growing in popularity is the Spanador. It’s a general term used to describe a Spaniel and Labrador mix. But you might also see these combinations of Spanador:
- Springador or Labradinger (Springer Spaniel x Labrador)
- Cockador (Cocker Spaniel x Labrador)
Spanadors are larger than your average Spaniel because of their Labrador parent. However, they still have the same Spaniel ears and playful nature.
So, what kind of home does a Spanador lend itself to? An active family home is their perfect place. The Spanador takes its energetic side from the Spaniel, but its Labrador ancestors are known to be incredible family dogs due to their affection and loyalty.
Mix between: King Charles Spaniel + Bichon Frise.
The King Charles Spaniel is the smallest purebred Spaniel. They’re cute and tend to have a flatter face, but when mixed with a Bichon Frise, out comes an adorable ball of Cavachon fluff.
The Cavachon is a friendly companion dog who takes positives from each of their ancestors.
Their Spaniel side, for example, shines through with their intelligence. They’re easy to train, and a great choice for first-time owners, for that reason. The Bichon Frise side also means they’re incredibly loyal and attached to their human friends.
The only thing to consider with this breed is that the Bichon Frise are known to suffer with separation anxiety. A Cavachon puppy might inherit that quality, meaning they’re best-suited to a home where at least one person is home for most of the day.
Mix between: King Charles Spaniel + Poodle.
Also known as a Cavapoodle, this Spaniel mix is a well-rounded dog.
They take after their Poodle parents with their intelligence. They love learning new tricks, and their Spaniel DNA makes them always keen to work. That makes the Cavapoo incredibly easy to train.
Again, a Cavapoodle is a superb family dog. They’re incredibly social and love being around people—especially their families. You won’t have an issue with your Cavapoo showing any signs of aggression or uncomfortableness when you invite strangers round, either. They’ll love to say hello!
However like the Cavachon, this love of socialising means they can suffer with separation anxiety.
Mix between: Spaniel + Border Collie.
The appearance of a Sprollie is distinctive. The classic Springer ears are passed through most crossbreeds, with their Border Collie side showing through their coat and tail.
Both of their parents are working dogs, which means the Sprollie needs an intense amount of daily exercise. Their hunting instinct is strong–there’s a chance your Sprollie will be off chasing anything that moves (including birds, rabbits, or squirrels.)
This high-energy side to their personality means they get bored easily (which can lead to them being destructive). That’s why why Sprollies are best-suited to active homes that can provide them with mental and physical stimulation.
Mix between: Spaniel + Beagle.
Beagles are some of the most versatile dogs; they’re happy to live in any kind of environment. Mix that with the Springer Spaniel and you’ve got a lovely companion dog that loves to be put to work.
Purebred Spaniels and Beagle are similar sizes, hence why the average Spreagle is a medium-sized dog. They come in combinations of white, brown, and black.
However, we wouldn’t recommend a Spreagle for a first-time dog owners. Not only are they strong-willed and independent, but both their Spaniel and Beagle parents have a strong instinct to hunt and smell. Strong (and early) training is needed. Otherwise, they’ll be tempted to follow their nose—wherever that goes.
Which is your favourite Spaniel mix?
These are some of the most popular Spaniel crossbreeds around today, but there are always new Spaniel mixes being bred.
Hopefully this guide helps you decide which is the best Spaniel mix for your family.

Cocker Spaniel Mixes: Which Would Be Right for Your Family?
Cocker Spaniel mixes are very popular. Most are small- to medium-sized dogs.
Whether you choose to buy a Cocker Spaniel mix puppy or offer a loving, forever home to a Cocker Spaniel mix rescue dog, you’ll need to know what to expect.
In this article, we’ll take a look at the most popular Cocker Spaniel mixes.
Giving you the low-down on what to expect from these cute combinations.
1. Miniature Cockapoo
The Miniature Cockapoo is the offspring of a purebred Cocker Spaniel and a Miniature Poodle.
These intelligent, loving dogs are some of the most popular Cocker Spaniel mixes.
Generally healthy, Miniature Cockapoos can live up to 15 years.
One reason why Cockapoos are such popular Spaniel mix dogs is that they don’t shed much coat, only requiring a small amount of grooming.
Although active and lively, the Cockapoo doesn’t require a huge amount of exercise thanks to their small stature.
Read our detailed guide to find out more about this gorgeous, cute designer mix.
2. The Cockalier
The Cockalier is the offspring of a Cocker spaniel and a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
These medium-sized dogs are gentle, people-oriented and intelligent.
They also enjoy lots of play and exercise, especially with their owner, making them the perfect companion for a senior or a pet in a family with kids.
Cockaliers tend to inherit the long, wavy coat of both their parents.
That means you’ll need to groom your pup several times a week to prevent matting.
Cavaliers also have a tendency to some very nasty health problems, which you will need to familiarise yourself with before taking the plunge.
You can read all about the Cockalier Spaniel mix dog in this in-depth article.
3. The Corkie
Another favorite of the Spaniel mix breeds is the Corkie.
The Corkie is a cross between a Yorkshire Terrier and a Cocker Spaniel.
Although both breeds have been very popular as family pets for many years, the Corkie is a relatively recent development.
So how big will your Corkie puppy grow to be?
Corkies are usually small- to medium-sized dogs, standing around 12 inches tall at the shoulder and weighing roughly 10 to 12 pounds.
Corkies tend to have long, silky coats that require regular grooming, including trimming, brushing and bathing.
This Cocker Spaniel mix is lively, happy and playful.
Reputedly easy to train, the Corkie makes a perfect choice for families with kids of all ages.
Read more about the Corkie Spaniel mix breed in this thorough article.
4. The Cocker Pei
The Cocker Pei is the result of crossing a Cocker Spaniel with a Shar Pei.
This intriguing designer breed is a recent experiment in crossbreeding.
Because of the totally different appearance and character of each breed, it’s very difficult to predict exactly how your pup will turn out when he’s fully grown.
The Cocker Spaniel is a medium-sized dog, standing up to 15.5 inches tall at the shoulder, whereas the Shar Pei can grow up to 20 inches tall.
The Cocker Spaniel is stocky, weighing up to 30 pounds.
The Shar Pei can weigh as much as 60 pounds.
A Cocker Shar Pei mix, therefore, could be anywhere in between.
Read more about the Corkie Spaniel mix breed in this informative article.
The Cockapoo is a crossbreed that’s obtained by crossing either a purebred Poodle with a purebred Cocker Spaniel, or vice versa.
The Poodle can be a standard, toy or miniature.
In the case of Cockapoos, it doesn’t matter which parent is purebred, as long as one of them is.
The Cockapoo comes in a huge range of colors. Their fur varies between tight curls and long, scruffy waves.
Although Cockapoos do change their coats with the seasons like other breeds, they tend to retain their fur rather than shedding it all over your home.
You’ll still need to groom your Cockapoo once or twice a week to get rid of loose hair and prevent the coat from matting.
Cockapoos make great family pets, being energetic, sociable and fun-loving.
To find out more about the Cockapoo, check out this comprehensive article.
6. Golden Cocker Retriever
The Golden Cocker Retriever is a fairly recent crossbreed to appear on the designer dog scene.
The breed is derived from crossing a Golden Retriever with a Cocker Spaniel.
One of the parents must be a pure pedigree.
Both breeds have similar temperaments so it’s a fairly safe bet that your puppy will grow up to be a reflection of both.
Golden Cocker Retrievers are friendly, active dogs that are usually easy to train.
As the name suggests, Golden Cocker Retrievers have medium-length golden coats.
They can look similar to a Cocker Spaniel because they often have long, floppy ears, and are medium size and build.
You’ll need to take good care of your Golden Cocker Retriever’s coat because they tend to have the same trousers and chest hair as their parents.
This can be prone to matting if not groomed regularly.
Both parent breeds suffer from an eye condition called progressive retinal atrophy, which can cause loss of vision as the dog ages.
Check that both your puppy’s parents are certified free of the disease.

7. The Beaker
The Beaker is a Cocker Spaniel mix breed that’s created by crossing a Cocker Spaniel and a Beagle.
Beakers are quiet, sweet dogs that can be a little aloof and easily intimidated by other dogs.
Beakers tend to get along much better with adult owners than with kids.
For this reason, they’re not recommended as a pet for families with small children but would make a perfect solo dog for a senior or singleton.
The short-coated beaker doesn’t need much grooming—just a quick brush once a week will suffice.
You’ll need to enjoy walking if you take on a beaker.
These lively little dogs enjoy long walks, preferably several times a day.
The Cockerdor is a cross between a Labrador Retriever and an American Cocker Spaniel.
If you’re keen to get a Black Spaniel mix, this could be the dog for you.
They come in lots of different colors, including black.
Cocker Spaniels are generally smaller than Labradors.
It’s important to remember that your puppy may take on characteristics of one of the parents more than the other.
Therefore, you could end up with a 20-pound adult dog or a 70-pound one.
That’s part of the fun of buying a Cocker Spaniel mix puppy. You don’t know what you’re going to get.
Cockerdors tend to be highly active, friendly and pretty easy to train.
Both parent breeds’ temperaments are similar, so you can expect your puppy to grow up to have an easygoing, stable nature.
These dogs love people. They also get along well with other dogs.
For a full rundown of the Cockerdor’s profile, check out this article.
Your Cocker Spaniel Mix
Cocker Spaniel mixes come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
When you choose a cross breed you can never be totally sure what to expect.
But if you are happy that both parents are healthy and friendly examples of their breeds, then the odds will be in your favor.
Whatever your spaniel is mixed with, make sure each parent is health tested for the diseases and disorders relevant to their breed.
And that you are happy that either temperament, or a combination of both, would suit your lifestyle.

History and Fun Facts about the Cocker Spaniel
Spaniel-type dogs have been documented as far back as the 14th century and were originally bred to help hunt birds before the invention of rifles. The Cocker Spaniel got its name from the bird it specialized in hunting: the woodcock.
As you might expect from a lineage of highly skilled hunters, Cocker Spaniels are incredibly intelligent and trainable. Gentle, happy, and decidedly impish, these dogs make excellent pets, playmates for children, as well as sporting companions.
Cocker Spaniels are big enough to excel in athletic activities, but also compact enough to travel easily and fit in a variety of homes. Their convenient size, unfailingly sweet dispositions, and lush coats made this breed America’s favorite dog for many years.
