Cockapoo's are one of the most popular breeds in the UK. Everyone knows someone who has a Cockapoo! A Cockapoo is a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. They are great family pets, intelligent, easily trained and energetic. They make a fun breed for all the family.
Cocker Spaniel Health Testing
As with any breed of dog you have a monthly maintenance cost. We have set the average amount you can expect to spend on your pet. Please remember this can vary depending on location and area you live in.
Please remember that all non-shedding dogs require regular professional grooming as well as regular grooming at home, if you want that nice teddy bear hair cut.
If you prefer a shorter style on your Cockapoo you can have your Cockapoo shaved to a shorter length and keep a nice Teddy bear type face.
All puppies require training, and we strongly recommend you attend regular puppy training classes. Early environmental training will set your puppy off to the best start.
Ask your breeder what environmental training they have done prior to the puppies leaving them?
Most Cockapoos have a moderate energy level, so they will require lots of walks and boredom buster games that will simulate their minds.
What to look for in a Breeder
We believe that transparency and information is the key to finding your perfect puppy. Here at The Doodle Club we offer a Paw Point scheme to improve standards and for you to make an informed choice.
Breeders are awarded two stars for meeting our health testing requirements for their breed. Breeders can achieve more stars, please see our Paw Point scheme for more information.
What Size is a Cockapoo
The Cockapoo can be bred in three different sizes.
The Toy Cockapoo is bred from a Toy Poodle and they can reach 10" in height.
The Mid size Cockapoo is bred from a Miniature Poodle and can reach between 12-15" in height.
The Standard Cockapoo is bred from a Standard Poodle and these are typically over 18" in height.
F1 Cockapoo's can be bred from an English Show Cocker Spaniel or from the Working Cocker Spaniel, the Working Cocker does require more exercise and stimulation than a Show Cocker. Cockapoo's come in first generation cross (F1) and multiple generations.
