When Cocker Spaniels were imported to North America in the 1880’s, the breed gradually changed as breeders produced a smaller dog. By the 1930’s , the differences between North American and English cockers were so obvious, efforts were made to split the breeds. In 1947, the original Cocker was renamed the English Cocker Spaniel and the new variety was named American Cocker Spaniel.
The Standard poodle is the oldest of the three Poodle breeds which are the Standard, Miniature and the Toy Variety. The Standard is known in Russia and Germany since the early 16th century. Though its first job was that of a retriever of waterfowl, the versatile Poodle was used in France to scent out truffles, a mushroom like delicacy. The breeds sense of fun and high trainability made it popular as a circus dog by the end of the 18th century.
