About the Cogol
The Cogol is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Cocker Spaniel and the Golden Retriever. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Cogol is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

A Cogol varies in color from golden to brown. They have a medium, silky coat with extra emphasis around the front and hind legs, behind the ears, and tail. The Cogols coat is sheen and wavy, specific to areas that vary for each individual dog. The most common of these areas are the ears and front legs.
The Cogols character can vary from dog to dog but in most cases these dogs are very docile and loving.
Since they are mixed with a larger breed, these dogs are prone to arthritis.
A Cogol needs to be groomed on a regular basis, particularly the ears, tail, front and hind legs. The coat in these areas is long and wavy and prone to matting. The hair between their paws grows thick and needs to be trimmed once a month. A Cogol sheds twice a year, just after winter and during the summer. Weight gain is common in this hybrid and they need to be exercised to maintain a healthy weight.
This breed needs plenty of room to exercise. If a yard is not available, daily leash walks will be needed. This breed may become anxious and chew if under exercised.
