The Pequizeiro’s Cockers have the tipical temperament of the breed, friendly and merry, but each has its particular personality. As other hunting and working breeds, cockers are high energy dogs that need daily exercises to not become bored. This may be done through playing or directed activities, as agility or walking programmes.
Our dogs are tested to Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA), Familial Nephropathy (FN), Adult Onset Neuropathy (AON), Hip Displasia (HD), Elbow Displasia (ED) and congenital deafness (BAER), and the matings are made considering this information, beside, of course, phenotipical and genealogical characteristics (pedigree) to assure that the Pequizeiro puppies are as healthy and close to the breed standard as possible.
