Overview of Bockers
From a health point of view, Bockers are prone to certain eye allergies.
A bored Bocker will make their own entertainment by chewing, barking, digging, or generally getting up to mischief.Alongside plenty of exercise, providing mental stimulation is also important.Happily, obedience training is a good mental work out, as is play and using puzzle feeders at mealtimes.
As a hybrid breed, you can never be certain of the physical appearance or characteristics of a dog until it gets a little older, although you should be able to recognize whether a Bocker will have the longer and curly hair of a Spaniel or the short coat of the Beagle.
A close friend told her, “It’s not time that heals, it’s what you do with the time that heals.Bocker is still leading Marie down a new path and that he will be here until his work is done.He has definitely made a huge difference in Marie’s life and she knows he has touched so many.He has definitely made a huge difference in Marie’s life and she knows he has touched so many. In 2011 Marie’s husband, and very best friend, passed away suddenly, and without Bocker, she did not know what direction her life would take. A close friend told her, “It’s not time that heals, it’s what you do with the time that heals. Marie knows she is the luckiest person in the world to have Bocker by her side, helping her heal… Lulu and I have seen Bocker in action, he truly is the gentle giant and we are blessed to have him in our lives.In 2011 Marie’s husband, and very best friend, passed away suddenly, and without Bocker, she did not know what direction her life would take.Marie knows she is the luckiest person in the world to have Bocker by her side, helping her heal… Lulu and I have seen Bocker in action, he truly is the gentle giant and we are blessed to have him in our lives.She always tells people that Bocker has been her therapy dog first!Thank Bocker for making the world a better place.They have partnered with the Animal Cancer Foundation and it is there mission to increase awareness and to a find a cure.They have partnered with the Animal Cancer Foundation and it is there mission to increase awareness and to a find a cure.

As with all dogs, the Bocker’s dietary needs will change from puppyhood to adulthood and will continue to change into their senior years.Dental chews can also help with this.You should ask your veterinarian for recommendations about your Bocker’s diet, as there is far too much variation among individual dogs–including weight, energy, and health–to make a specific recommendation.You should brush their teeth daily, as small breeds are prone to dental issues.Your main concern when it comes to your Bocker’s care will be maintaining their oral health.Your veterinarian can instruct you on how to brush your dog’s teeth properly.
Also, should the Bocker take after the Cocker parent, then trips to the parlour for clipping may be required every six to eight weeks.How often a Bocker requires grooming depends on whether they favour the Beagle short coat or the Cocker’s longer silky hair.Whereas a short coat requires minimal effort with a slicker a couple of times a week, a long silky coat requires a daily comb through.
Because the Bocker is a small dog, they can be easily injured by overly excited children.Bockers bond with everyone in the family and can enjoy endless play sessions with older children.Bockers prefer to be mostly around adults or older kids who know how to play gently.That said, for children who learn early how to properly approach and play with a small dog, the Bocker can make a great, active companion.
Begin accustoming your Bocker to being brushed and examined during puppyhood.Check their ears at least every two weeks for signs of infection or waxy buildup.Check them also if you notice your Beagle shaking their head a lot or scratching at their ears.Handle their paws frequently–dogs are touchy about their feet.If your Bocker has their Beagle parent’s drop ears, air doesn’t circulate well inside, and they are prone to ear infections.Make grooming a positive experience filled with praise and rewards, and you’ll lay the groundwork for easy veterinary exams and other handling when they’re an adult.Never allow water or oils to remain in their ears.
As long as he is getting enough daily exercise from a caring handler, he usually makes a good family pet that will mix and interact with other family members.The Beagle is intelligent and loving, but as a hunting dog, he does require a lot of stimulation: both physical and mental.The beagle makes a good guard dog because, although he isn’t aggressive, he is protective of his family.
Intelligence is an advantage when it comes to training, but the down side is that the Bockers are not very eager to please their masters, so at this point training can get a little bit tricky.Using food rewards may aid in the process, but be careful so that they don’t snap at your hand.
Food & Diet Requirements ??
The best diet for a Bocker is one that has been formulated for small dogs with high energy levels.Overfeeding can be a problem because this breed will pack on pounds if they eat too much and do not get enough exercise.As such, consider sticking to a daily feeding regimen, providing two or three meals at a set time each day.If you leave food down, they will eat it and come back for more.

The Bocker might be a small dog, but he has a lot of energy, and you will want to help get rid of this energy with regular walks.Expect to spend an hour or more a day walking your Bocker.He is also an intelligent dog, which means that he craves mental stimulation, and if this isn’t provided, he might create his own games, such as chewing the sofa or grabbing items off tables that he can reach.Your Bocker is likely to let you know when it’s time to play and walk because he enjoys having a set timetable and he will quickly learn it.
Are These Dogs Good for Families? ??
Both parent breeds are considered excellent family pets.They get along with people of all ages and are even friendly with strangers at the first meeting.They will enjoy playtime with older children, cuddling on the sofa at night, but you will need to monitor any time they spend alone with very small children: although the Bocker is highly unlikely to show any signs of aggression, small children can grab and hurt the dog by accident, and this can lead to anxiety or even nipping.
What is the average Bocker lifespan?
Between 1963 and 2004, in the United States, Bocker life expectancy was at its lowest point in 1967, and highest in 2004.The average life expectancy for Bocker in 1963 was 77, and 93 in 2004.

Bockers are moderate shedders and will usually shed twice a year.Regular brushing helps remove loose hair and ensures that your dog is more comfortable.Although this breed does shed, however, you do not need to take them for professional grooming unless you want to.

Health and Conditions ??
The Bocker is a healthy and hardy breed, which will usually live to 12 years old, with many going on to 15 years of age.There are no known conditions prevalent in this hybrid breed, but we need to look at the parent breeds to get a better idea of any likely health conditions that your dog will suffer.This means that the Bocker could suffer from eye and ear conditions, joint dysplasia, and possibly epilepsy, among other possible conditions.If your dog shows symptoms of any of these conditions, get them checked by a veterinarian to prevent worsening.
Does This Breed Get Along with Other Pets?
Beagles do very well as part of a pack, and Cocker Spaniels are known for mixing well with other dogs.The Bocker will usually inherit these traits, although you should still ensure that your puppy is well socialized at an early age.Attend puppy classes or training classes, go to agility lessons, and walk them in dog parks and other areas where dogs congregate.This will help ensure that they are amiable and enjoy meeting other animals.
