A bored Cocker Spaniel is trouble waiting to happen. Intelligent and curious, your peaceful pal with get into mischief if not kept busy. The best way to avoid boredom is with plenty of playtime (you need the exercise, too!).
Our Cocker starts playing with us at night if we haven't worn off some of that energy during the day...her favorite game is bite dad's house shoes then get chased with a pink plastic fly swatter...she 'catches' it and growls and chews on it until we take it away and chase her with it again...she loves that game...we all sleep well the nights we play it!
