All 23 Cocker Spaniel Mixes

September 28, 2022

Designer or hybrid dogs are becoming increasingly desirable, and one of the most popular breeds to have a mixed dog with is the Cocker Spaniel.

This is not really a surprise seeing what a kind and affectionate dog this Spaniel breed is. Traits that are commonly seen in crossbreeds.

Cocker Spaniel mixes are a very diverse group ranging from Spanadors, who are quite large dogs, all the way down to little Cocker Pugs. All of these combinations make for a broad combination of personalities and traits.

And in this article, we are going to take a look at all of the mixed breeds you could consider if you are looking for a Cocker Spaniel mix.



Cockapoos are a mix between Cocker Spaniels and Poodles that have been around since the 1960s. Since this time they are one of the most popular Cocker mixes.

They have the affectionate and loving nature that a Cocker Spaniel has paired with the low shedding and intelligence of the Poodle. A great combination. Training will be a breeze, and you'll never be short of a cuddle with a Cockapoo around.

Cockapoos come in a wide range of colours, including black, cream, apricot, or tri-colour. Their coats can vary quite a bit from being short with tighter curls or longer and wavy, depending on how much of each of the parent breeds it has.

As Cockapoos are a very popular dog breed, you shouldn't have much trouble finding a puppy.

Sprocker Spaniel

Sprocker Spaniel

Perhaps the most popular of all Cocker Spaniel mixes. The Sprocker Spaniel is bred by combining two of the most desirable Spaniel breeds, the Cocker Spaniel and English Springer Spaniel.

The result is a Spaniel that has the energy and intelligence of an English Springer and the affection and cuteness of a Cocker. Is there a better combination out there? I really don't know.

Very active families will be a better fit for a Sprocker as they will need a good two hours of exercise a day to stay active and healthy. For those who are looking for an excitable, energetic Cocker crossbreed, you will struggle to find one better than the Sprocker Spaniel.

Sprocker Spaniel breed information


What happens when you breed a Cocker Spaniel and a Schnauzer? You get a Schnocker!

These little dogs are ideal companion dogs and work well in families with children, and can happily live in apartments. They are known for being a low-shedding breed which is a nice bonus if you wanted the loving Cocker Spaniel temperament but didn't like the shedding level.

This mixed breed is not the most active dog on this list and will need a good 40-60 minutes a day to stay healthy and content, though you won't get any complaints if you want to just chill on the sofa!

Schnockers come in five solid coat colours with black, brown, grey, cream, and white dogs. Their coats are quite wavy, more like a Cockers coat and they'll need regularly groomed to keep it looking good.

Golden Cocker Retriever

Golden Cocker Retriever

Golden Cocker Retrievers are a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Golden Retriever. This breed melds the best qualities of both parent breeds into one playful and affectionate dog.

They are typically medium-sized dogs. Pretty much the middle ground between the two dogs. Golden Cocker Retrievers are another very popular mix. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise though, seeing both parents are very desirable dog breeds.

Golden Cockers have a life expectancy of between 12 and 15 years and have been known to have some of the same conditions its parent breeds get.

That said, this cross breed makes excellent canine companions and will brighten every day.


Our next hybrid dog breed is the Cock-A-Tzu. This combination is a mix between the Shih Tzu and American Cocker Spaniel. They've been around for roughly 40 years at this point.

This designer dog is known for its excitable and fun-loving personality and for being a brilliant family dog who is great with children. Cock-A-Tzu's can be a little stubborn at times, a Cocker trait shining through here!

Those who live in apartments will be pleased to hear they are known for being fairly quiet dogs, certainly more than a Cocker would be anyway.

No need to worry about the neighbours if you have a Cock-A-Tzu around!

Cocker Pug

Another incredibly cute mix to cover, let me introduce the Cocker Pug.

This popular designer dog has the signature Cocker Spaniel ears and brown eyes. Their body is a similar size to a pug, so this is another smaller dog featured on this list. It's known for being a companion dog and takes the best traits from both parent breeds.

Usually, a Cocker Pug will not have the same breathing problems that a purebred Pug often has. Overall, it is an excellent choice for a family dog.


Moving from one of the larger Cocker mixes to one of the smallest, we have the Chi-Spaniel. This dog came from breeding a Chihuahua and a Cocker Spaniel.

It has the smaller body of a Chihuahua and the facial features of a Cocker. You really can't mistake the Cocker in there. Generally, this little dog will be around 12-14 inches tall and weigh only around 6-16 lbs, depending on how much of each breed is in there.

This designer dog is best for families looking for a companion dog. Chi-Spaniel cross breeds also get along well with other dogs and children, so don't worry too much if you already have a busy household. They will fit right in with their playful nature.


A Cockeranian is what you get from mating a Pomeranian with a Cocker Spaniel. They are an energetic dogs and are one of the higher maintenance cross breeds on this list.

Cockeranians only come in four coat colours which include white, brown, black, and pied. Their coat is quite long, and they do shed quite a bit.

They are known for being prolific barkers, so if you live in an apartment, you might want to consider one of the other small companion dogs on this list. Cockeranians also don't handle being alone very well either.

Cocker Setter

A Cocker Setter is the result of breeding two hunting dogs, the Irish Setter and a Cocker Spaniel. The result is a medium-sized dog who is a bit bigger than a Cocker Spaniel at around 20-22 inches tall as an adult and up to double the weight.

The Cocker intelligence shines through in this mix which makes for a very easy dog to train, but also a need for a lot of mental stimulation.

A Cocker Setter's personality is quite outgoing and friendly, though they can be a little protective at times. Another solid family dog if you are looking for one.



Spanador's are what you get when you mate a Cocker Spaniel and a Labrador Retriever. This Spaniel cross breed is another popular option and is one of the largest breeds on this list, though still a bit smaller than a normal Labrador.

This mix has a kind and amenable temperament and is quite an active breed. They come in a few colours such as golden, black, and brown.

It is also worth noting that a Spanador won't be suitable for smaller living spaces. A fenced back garden or lots of large open spaces nearby to home will be required.


Bocker's are another Cocker Spaniel mix, this time between a Cocker and a Beagle. You might also see this designer dog referred to as Beakers or a Beagle Spaniel, which is worth noting if you are tempted!

These adorable crosses love playtime with anyone, person or dog and are great with kids. At times the Curiosity of Bockers can get the better of them, and they may get into some mischief. Just the Spaniel side shining through!

Bocker's can have that Cocker separation anxiety, though, so make sure someone is home with them through the day, or at least a dog walker/sitter popping in.

A Bocker will be able to live in any type of home, including apartments. They typically hover between being on the low end of a medium-sized dog or small.

Cocker Pei

A Cocker Pei is one of the most visually interesting Spaniel cross breeds on our list. As you might have guessed from the name, it's bred by mating a Cocker Spaniel with a Shar-Pei.

It has one of the lowest amounts of shedding of all Cocker mixes with their smooth short hair. Cocker-Pei's are one of the lowest maintenance canine companions you could have. Combine this with Cocker Spaniel's loving nature, and you are on to a winner.

Spaniel Pit

While a Cocker Spaniel mixed with an American Pit Bull Terrier might not be the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a Cocker crossbreed, it's actually a really cute dog and has many traits that make it an excellent choice.

This mix is called a Spaniel Pit, but you might find one referred to as a Cockerpit or Pitbull Cocker. This combination makes dogs which are energetic, fun-loving, and incredibly cute.

You'll find the Spaniel Pit is an affectionate and sensitive dog and can have difficulty being alone.

It is one of the less common mixes, so it may be a challenge to find a Spaniel Pit pup.


The Docker is a strong contender for the cutest Cocker Spaniel mix. It's what you get when you mate a Dashhaund and a Cocker Spaniel. It's got a Dachshund-style body but has Cocker Spaniel facial features. You will be able to see the Cocker in this designer dog immediately.

Docker's were bred to be small companion dogs and, as such, won't need as much exercise as other hybrids such as the Golden Cocker Retriever would. About 40 minutes a day would do.

Taking the best qualities of both parents breeds the Docker is an outstanding family dog who never wants to be left out of the action.

You might see the Docker referred to by a few other names, such as Doxie Spaniel or Spaniel Doxie.

Cocker Collie

Collie Cocker

Likely the most intelligent Cocker cross breed, the Collie Cocker is a mix of the Cocker Spaniel and Border Collie.

This dog breed is medium-sized, weighing around 14 kg fully grown. Physically their body is a similar shape to the Collie but with those signature Cocker ears. There is no breed standard, and this can vary a little.

Collie Cockers should be reserved for active families who have plenty of time to keep up with a very energetic dog who needs a lot of mental and physical stimulation.

Given that both Border Collies and Cockers are known shedders, brushing will be a regular activity. You may want to do it every few days with this breed to keep your home free from their loose hair.


If you took cuteness and affection and turned them into a dog, you would have a Corkie. This hybrid dog takes a Yorkshire Terrier and pairs it with a Cocker Spaniel to great effect.

This breed is very chilled out (sometimes too much), always looking to please their family, and nobody has ever heard of a Corkie turning down a cuddle. This strong connection to their family does mean they suffer quite a lot when left alone, so not a breed for those who can't ensure they are not alone a lot.

A Corkie's temperament is also pretty cute. They can be a little sensitive and respond best to gentle and positive training methods.


Our next Cocker Spaniel designer dog is the Cock-A-Chon. This is what you get when you breed a Bichon Frise with an American Cocker Spaniel.

As both of these parent breeds have a strong reputation for being excellent companions, the result is an outstanding family dog. You'll be smitten with their loving and affectionate nature and constant drive to please their owners.

Cock-A-Chon's are smart dogs, so training will be easy again with this breed. And as they are smaller dogs, they do have one of the lower exercise requirements on this list. Living in smaller spaces also won't be a problem.

Most of the time, you'll get this mix with brown, golden, black, or tan coats. Typically these can be quite wavy, similar to Cocker Spaniel's, and shedding is at around the same level too.



Cock-A-Mo's are one of the least common designer dogs on this list. It comes from mating a Cocker Spaniel with an American Eskimo dog, as you'd imagine, this is pretty uncommon.

They have a thicker coat and not the light and wavy hair associated with Cockers.

This Cocker mix brings the same Spaniel cheerful disposition you'd hope and are quite playful. They sit between small and medium-sized dogs and will need a good bit of exercise to stay content and healthy.

It's quite unlikely you will come across this designer dog outside of America.

Siberian Cocker

Siberian Cocker's is what you get when you breed a Siberian Husky and an American Cocker Spaniel. This hybrid sits firmly in the medium-sized dog's category and is one of the most muscular and stocky dogs on the list.

The Husky side of the dog is more apparent in terms of its energy levels and exercise requirements. Definitely, one that should be reserved for active outdoorsy families. You still have those long floppy Cocker Ears and playful, affectionate personality, so still a fun dog to have around.

Cocker Jack

Cocker Jack's are another very popular designer dog that involves a Cocker. This mix is the result of a Jack Russell being bred with a Cocker Spaniel.

Appearance can vary quite a bit. However, they do have a typical Cocker with long floppy ears and cute brown eyes. They are pretty low maintenance overall but will need regular brushing to keep loose hair at bay.

This breed is ideal if you are looking for a companion dog for active people. Cocker Jack's are energetic and full of life. They do make good family dogs but can be a bit much for younger families.

Silky Cocker

Silky Cocker's are the result of breeding a Maltese and a Cocker Spaniel. This crossbreed is another smaller dog that made the list measuring only 14 inches high as adults and 9 kg.

Maintenance will be a key consideration with this little dog as Silky Cockers have a long wavy coat. Shedding is a bit better than a normal Cocker Spaniel, with Maltese being low-shedding dogs. Their coats are quite similar to Cockers being quite long and wavy.

Silky Cocker's also have a kind and affectionate nature that makes them wonderful family dogs.


The Cockerbull is a crossbreed between an English Bulldog and a Cocker spaniel. This is another uncommon combo. It may be challenging to find one, have a look at Winnie if you want to see one.

Their appearance shares traits of both parent breeds with those floppy ears of a Cocker, but with not as much hair. While a Cockerbull's body and tail represent the English Bulldog side of their breeding a lot more.

A Cockerbull's temperament is fairly laid back, and they love a cuddle, perhaps a little mischievous streak too, and a proclivity to howl. They are also good with kids and make great family dogs.


Another rare Cocker Spaniel mix, this time with the Schocker. This dog comes from mating an American Cocker Spaniel and a Shiba Inu.

If you are lucky enough to come across one of these dogs, you'll find it to be full of life, always ready for adventure, and pretty strong-willed.

The Schocker is a medium-sized dog and has a fairly long and thick coat that comes in five colours. Be warned, this designer dog is known for shedding quite a bit, so if you were to have a Schocker in your life, daily brushing would be advisable.

That independent nature shows through in their personality, with the Schocker enjoying more alone time that you'd expect with a Cocker mix. They take after the Shiba Inu more when it comes to personality.


And there you have it, 23 Cocker Spaniel mixes you could consider if you are getting a new dog. They are a very diverse group of dogs, from tiny little companion dogs like the Chi-Spaniel all the way up to the more boisterous Spanador. There are breeds here to suit any lifestyle and preference.

Some of these crossbreeds are just as well known as their purebred parent breeds. The main breeds that match this are the Sprocker Spaniel and Cockapoo, while it may be quite challenging to find a breeder with a litter of many of the others.

Cocker Spaniels are outstanding family dogs that will be great additions to any home, and these mixes give you even more Cocker options.
