Cockapoos get their name by being a mix between Cocker Spaniels and Poodles. It’s important to understand that Cockapoos are not a purebred dog, which means we aren’t able to reliably predict their temperaments. In general, Cockapoos are great companion dogs for families and tend to be affectionate.
There are different sized variations of Cockapoos, which include:
- Teacup Toy Cockapoos
- Toy Cockapoos
- Miniature Cockapoos
- Standard (Maxi) Cockapoos
Depending on which variation you get, your adult dog may weight anywhere between 6 and 19 pounds. All variations are considered small-sized dogs.
Cockapoos don’t require as much exercise as more energetic dog breeds. We recommend walking your dog once a day to keep them happy and healthy. The Cockapoo dog breed is also perfectly happy to fetch the balls you throw in your backyard.
The intent of breeding Cockapoos was to create a dog with a minimally shedding coat, similar to the poodle. However, genetic can be unpredictable. In general, the Cockapoo is a long-haired dog breed with fur that grows straight or in loose curls. You will need to brush your dog at least once a week in order to keep their coat clean and healthy.
