16 High Energy Dogs For Families On The Go
Cocker Spaniels have a bit of a reputation as a fancy type dog. But theyâ€™re actually sporting dogs, which means theyâ€™re quite active. Thereâ€™s no doubt that theyâ€™re absolutely gorgeous with their sleek coats and fluffy ears. As the AKC says, â€œCockers are eager playmates for kids and are easily trained as companions and athletes. They are big enough to be sporty, but compact enough to be portable.â€ Which means they are adaptable for smaller houses or apartments. Cocker Spaniels are on the lower end of high energy dogs, preferring a brisk walk with their people. You can encourage the kids to play fetch with them, which is one of their favorite types of exercise.
