About the Spanador
The Spanador 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 Labrador Retriever. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Spanador is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

Spanadors require weekly brushing in order to keep their coat in top shape. They have soft fur that can mat if it gets wet. The long fur on the hind legs and tail can also mat. They will shine with one good brushing a week.
