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

They are very friendly, gentle dogs that love attention. They are playful, happy and very intelligent. Training is easy. They do well with large families. They don't bark much even though they are very entergetic.
They sometimes have ear problems and can develop hip dysplasia.
They are average shedders and their hair can get very long. It needs to be clipped or trimmed on occasion. Weekly bathing and minor brushing will usually suffice. Flat long hair is prefered as it is not easily matted.
They do fine in cool environments because of their long hair. However, they need to be clipped in warm/hot environment.
