Chocolate Cocker Spaniels are simply gorgeous, but chocolate roans are beautiful too! Drool over lots of lovely pictures of Chocolate and Roan Cocker Spaniels and puppies! If you've one of your own, why not add your pet's photo to this page for all to see?
Chocolate Cockers, sometimes also known as liver, (brown to you and me!) may not be as common as some of the other Spaniel colours but they're certainly very popular, and they are gorgeous!
Many of the cockers and field spaniels (long before the breed was divided into two separate breeds) were chocolate. In fact, today, many working cockers are still brown/liver coloured.
However, chocolate isn't a very common colour in the show cocker.
That's because responsible breeders are now breeding on temperament rather than colour. It's much better to have a cocker with a good, gentle temperament.
Unfortunately, because chocolate cocker spaniels are in demand at the moment, it is tempting some breeders to breed on colour alone, ignoring the temperament aspect, which can have dangerous consequences.
However, despite the chocolate cocker being fairly uncommon, we've managed to get a selection of photos of beautiful brown cockers for you.
Take a look, I think you'll agree, they're gorgeous!
Chocolate cockers can be seen in a solid brown colour (just like this adorable puppy above), chocolate roan (liver roan), chocolate and tan (liver and tan), and chocolate and white (liver and white).
There are many beautiful combinations!
I adore brown Cocker Spaniels and I especially like those with roan markings.
Take a look at the markings on this beautiful chocolate Cocker Spaniel's coat, (below) they're unique! Her name is Kona and she's an excellent example of a chocolate roan.
Let me introduce you to Kona.
She's a beautiful chocolate roan and she's enjoying a refreshing swim in the lake!
Here she is again, having dried off, she's now feeling restless.
She's now exploring the bank-side (and on patrol, by the looks of it) while the grown-ups enjoy their sunny day by the river.
Kona's decided to have a little fun, running up and down the riverside or has something caught her eye?
Just look at those beautiful roan markings.
She's like a frothy cappuccino!
Now it's time to play ball, she's absolutely tireless!
Who wants to play?
Come on Mum, Dad, let's go!
With all this fresh country air and exercise, Kona will certainly sleep well tonight!
Kona is owned by our visitors Eric and Ali from Oakdale, California and I'd like to thank them for sharing these wonderful pictures.

This video is just over 2 minutes long and it shows Rossi, a beautiful working Cocker Spaniel, growing from a puppy to an adult.
She's a classic example of just how gorgeous Cockers can be!
Of course, Cocker Spaniel's coats come in a wide variety of colours and markings.
You'll also find golden and black cockers in solid colours, then there's markings such as roan, or 'ticking' which is a small flecking of colour on a primarily white coat.
Parti-colours are just what they sound, (usually) two colours mixed, and you can also get tricolour...yes, you guessed it, three colours!

Just look at this beautiful brown American Cocker Spaniel, he's absolutely stunning!
This is a wonderful example of an extremely well-groomed American cocker.
He's just adorable!
Yet another example of a gorgeous chocolate Cocker Spaniel!
He's sitting patiently waiting for his master.
He's an English Cocker and looks very different to his American cousin, but he's beautiful just the same.
From time to time, our visitors send up photos of their cocker spaniels, and I thought I'd show a couple here. Enjoy!
You know your Cocker Spaniel is beautiful!
You also know that Cockers often get up to all sorts of antics and into so much 'loveable' mischief!
We'd love you to share some of your favourite Cocker Spaniel pictures with us and show the world just how beautiful they are.
Your photographs may capture your pet getting up to mischief, running in the park, playing with other dogs, asleep on his back - legs akimbo, or they may simply reflect how adorable they are!
