Cockapoo Information

The Cockapoo is a relatively new dog breed, first appearing in the United States in the 1950s. The Cockapoo was created by crossing a Cocker Spaniel with a Poodle. The resulting offspring inherited the best traits of both breeds, including their hypoallergenic coats and intelligence.

Loved for their adorable appearance and friendly, affectionate personality, Cockapoos are one of the most popular designer dogs in the world.

Cockapoos are also known for being low-shedding and hypoallergenic, making them an excellent choice for people with allergies. Cockapoos require moderate exercise and grooming.

Exercise Needs

Cockapoos are a moderately active breed. They enjoy daily walks and playtime but don’t require a lot of strenuous exercise. A few short walks or play sessions daily will be sufficient to keep your Cockapoo happy and healthy.

While Cockapoos do enjoy the occasional game of fetch, they are not a hyperactive breed and will be just as content relaxing at home with their family.


Cockapoos are an intelligent breed that is easily trained. They are quick to learn new commands and tricks and enjoy pleasing their owners.

Cockapoos are also known for being very food-motivated, which makes training easier. Just be sure to use positive reinforcement methods such as treats and praise, as Cockapoos do not respond well to negative criticism.

Health Issues

Cockapoos are a relatively healthy breed, but there are a few health conditions to be aware of. These include hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, and epilepsy.


Cockapoos have moderate grooming needs. You should brush them a few times weekly to remove loose hair and prevent mats and tangles from forming.

Cockapoos must have their nails trimmed, and teeth brushed regularly.

While Cockapoos do not need to be bathed often, they should be given a bath every few weeks to keep their coat clean and healthy.
