A designer dog, the Cockalier is a cross between the Cocker Spaniel and the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. While most Cockalier puppies are resultant of crosses between purebred parents (first generation cross); a cross between non purebred parents will result in a multi generation Cockalier puppy. It is important to make sure that the parents used in cross are healthy and disease free. Also, before buying a puppy from a Cockalier breeder, it is important to know the parental lineage and the dominant parent in the cross. Knowing who the dominant parent between the two is can help in determining the characteristics of the resultant pup.
