Bocker can have curly hair from a cocker, short, rough fur from a beagle, or both. Bath as needed, or every 2-3 months (depending on how often bockers go out and roll in the mud). Bocker comes in a variety of colors, including gold, white, black, cream, brown, two colors (such as white and brown) and even three colors (such as brown, black and white).
Bocker's legs are short and muscular, his feet are large, his tail is short to medium length and can be curled on his back. Because bocker has medium to long silky fur, it's important to brush at least two or three times a week with a bristle brush and metal comb. Don't pull the mat or entangle it with a comb. It's better to untie the fur with your fingers and brush it out. Because bockers have long ears, you need to check them once a week for dust, wax and redness. In addition, you can clean bocker with a soft cloth or cotton ball and a mild detergent recommended by your veterinarian. If necessary, trim your dog's toenails and brush your teeth at least twice a week.
Unlike most dogs, Bocker prefer high quality dry food. However, the trick is to know how to choose the right kibble! First, choose dry food made from natural high-grade raw materials. Meat (not meat meal) should be the first ingredient on the list, followed by healthy fat and fiber. Avoid cheap kibbles filled with stuffing that is malnourished and won't make your pet full or healthy. Choose the right food for your pet's age, activity level and size - in general, the Chinese dog formula is a good choice. Bockers need about 1.5-2 cups of high-quality biscuits a day (spread out between 2-3 meals) to keep bockers at their best. Don't eat too much, because bocker tends to get fat. Bocker is a friendly, well behaved dog. Keeping bocker at the right healthy weight is essential for your dog of any breed. Bocker is known to be gaining weight, so / however, a diet of biologically appropriate protein and healthy fats, ground bones and vegetables rich in the vitamins and minerals needed is essential for optimal health and performance. As with any diet change, you should pay special attention to your dog's weight and appearance as bockers adapt to bocker's diet. How much you feed your dog every day depends on several factors, including age, physical condition, activity level, etc.
Bocker is not prone to specific health problems, but it may inherit some from its parents. Cocker dogs are prone to ear and eye problems, as well as otitis externa. Bocker is also at risk for progressive retinal atrophy and glaucoma in dogs. Beagles have problems such as cherry eyes, ear infections, heart disease, glaucoma, epilepsy, hypothyroidism, and disc disease. Bocker's life expectancy is expected to be 11-13 years.
Although there is a lot of data on health problems related to the breed of parents, this information is not available to bocker due to the rarity of bocker. However, it is reasonable to assume that bocker may be inclined to share some of the health problems faced by his parents. Intervertebral disc disease Sliding disc is not uncommon in the two parents. This pain is caused by the displacement of the cushion (intervertebral disc) between the back bones (spine) and the compression of the spinal cord. First of all, it's very painful, the dog may cry, sob, even scream. The bockers were stiff and unwilling to jump up the stairs. In the worst case, spinal compression can be severe enough to cause paralysis. If you suspect back pain, keep the dog still and at rest and contact your veterinarian. Obesity A good appetite in both Beagles and cockers can lead to weight gain, especially if bocker doesn't get enough exercise. Smart dog owners learn to "rate" their dogs and carefully match food to energy. Failure to do so puts the dog at risk of obesity, which can predispose the dog to diabetes, heart disease and early arthritis. Carcinoma of anal sac The canines were pretreated with anal sac carcinoma. If found early, these tumors can be removed surgically. However, in the early stages, there are usually no symptoms of cancer, so it is difficult to detect. Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA) affects the eyes and leads to early-onset blindness. Sadly, Cocker dogs have a strong tendency to pra. This genetic disease can lead to gene coding errors in healthy retinas. This causes the photoreceptor (retina) of the eye to gradually disappear over time. Early symptoms of PRA include night blindness, which means that dogs are uncertain about their surroundings under low levels of light. This condition can last for months or years with complete loss of vision. Unfortunately, there is no cure for PRA, which is crucial that the affected dogs are not used for breeding.
Although bocker is cute and easy-going, training it can be a challenge because bocker likes to do things in his own way. With a determined and patient trainer, bockers should be able to learn basic commands. Bocker will do well in obedience class.
You must have your puppies interact with children and other dogs (size or size) when they are young, because bocker will be used to getting along with them and understand that boxer doesn't mean harm. As always, children should be supervised when they play with or deal with puppies.
Because both parents are docile and friendly, bocker is an excellent family pet for anyone, including those who have children and their bocker pets. Bockers are smart and loyal and will do everything to please their owners, so training is usually quite easy. But you have to be consistent, or the bocker in your car will try to take advantage of you. Early social activities are important to help bockers get along with their bocker dogs in the dog park. Bocker likes to be hugged and loved, and will patiently endure a child's attention for hours. However, it's definitely not a good idea for children to be alone with dogs.
Two factors shape bocker's trainability: first, bocker's work Heritage (energy and intelligence), and second, they tend to think independently. The latter is absent-minded, and despite the owners' recall, bockers are still conducting odor tests. The actual result is that bocker responds well to training, but needs regular and continuous work. If you don't, someone may smell an interesting smell and then follow and run away. Happily, bocker is often food motivated, which means that reward based training methods, using therapy, should hold the dog's attention. Like any dog, especially when bocker is a family pet, good early socializing is essential. This means that the breeder should expose the cubs to all kinds of vision, sound and smell, but help bocker grow into a well adapted adult in a positive and confident way.
When we take care of bocker, we should know that dogs also like to be in the center of any family activity and enjoy playing. Bocker likes to be active and alert, but bocker is also very sensitive. When it's not good, he should be treated severely. If bocker feels pain or fear, bocker will also break. Early socialization will make bocker show his best. Bocker is a happy and friendly dog. However, there are also some rare cases that some Cocker dogs have unprovoked aggressive behavior, which is considered to be genetic. So on paper, bocker should be happy and attractive to dogs, but there may be a strange exception, which is easy to attack with dogs. Bocker does need a lot of regular exercise. In fact, it means two outings a day, one for at least an hour, with the opportunity to run around. Ideally, a bocker should be happily tired at the end of their walk.
A boring bocker would amuse himself by chewing, barking, digging, or the usual prank. Besides a lot of exercise, it's also important to provide mental stimulation. Happily, obedience training is a good mental exercise, just like playing with a meal and using a puzzle feeder. How often bockers need to be groomed depends on whether they like the Beagle coat or the long silky hair of the Cocker. A short coat needs minimum effort and a smooth one several times a week, while a long silk coat needs to be combed every day. In addition, if bocker takes a clip after the cocker parent and then goes to the living room, it may take every six to eight weeks. Other bocker's daily toiletries include brushing your teeth every day and checking your ears regularly. These gorgeous drop ears can absorb air, making the ear canal a warm and humid place, which is conducive to ear infection. Lifting the eardrum to look for secretions or odors can help the owner find infection in the ear stage.
