What is the ideal weight for a 1-year old Americal cocker spaniel?
Reply from Pauline - (Web Owner)
American cocker spaniels tend to be slightly smaller than their English cousins.
You don't say what sex your dog is, but both bitch and male American cocker spaniel's ideal weight would be somewhere between 11 and 13 kg.
This is their average weight at adulthood.
However, because all dogs are different, their weights are given as approximate.
For example, if your male dog is small for a cocker spaniel then it wouldn't be too unusual for him to weigh just 11 kgs.
On the other hand, if your female dog is rather large framed, she might easily weigh up to 13 kgs.

If you are at all worried about your dog being underweight, I would recommend you speak to your vet who may recommend a prescription dog food diet for your Cocker.
