We had our Cocker done in a modified Brittney clip, short body, slightly 
trim the ears so they look neat & leave 'tubes' on the front legs from the 
ankle up, shave the hinds all the way to the hock in back.  He looked nice, 
we had our Setter clipped the same way only longer & I think we left her 
hinds alone.  I really don't like the Cocker clip even when it's in a 
modified form.
