The cockapoo is a hybrid. They have been bred for a long time, and the characteristics of the resulting puppies are well established. A true cockapoo must be traceable back to a purebred cocker and poodle. If it can’t be it isn’t a cockapoo. We use purebred Cocker Spaniels and Poodles in our breeding program. We only produce lst generation or F1 cockapoos. We feel that it is in this generation that the qualities most desirable in the cockapoo are most evident.
They are, on average, medium in size, 18 to 25 pounds, they have low to no shed hair coats that have some wave or curl to them. They come in just about every color. I’ve posted some pictures below of some of the different colors. The cockapoo is considered to be one of the hypoallergenic breeds. We have sold many to people with allergies and never had one return for allergy related reasons!
They make great family dogs, sturdy enough for children, but small enough to fit into today’s lifestyles. They are very adaptable. They fit well into apartments or on the farm. We have dogs living in apartments and going for walks and dogs who jog over 5 miles a day with their humans. We have dogs that have been trained for agility courses and dogs that have been trained as companions for nursing home patients. They adore the humans in their lives and will adapt well to your lifestyle, be it playing a game of catch or watching a movie. They are intelligent, eager to please and have sweet dispositions.
The cocker and poodle are both fine dogs, but the puppies they produce together are almost magic and they have cornered the market when it comes to cuteness! For more information on this wonderful dog please visit the North American Cockapoo Registry or the American Cockapoo Club.
There is an old saying “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree” The traits and personalities of the parents will almost certainly show in the puppies. All of our parents have been carefully chosen for disposition first. They have good health, are not aggressive, shy or timid. They are well socialized, “kid” tested and grandmother approved.
All of our moms are AKC registered cocker spaniels, our dads are AKC registered miniature poodles. They are also registered with the American Cockapoo Club.
If you want more information about the wonderful cockapoo please contact me or visit the American Cockapoo Club or North American Cockapoo Registry. Both sites have a lot of good information.
Training Your Cockapoo
Cockapoos as a breed are relatively easy to train. They are eager to please and want the people in their lives to be as happy as they are. There are, of course, some things that they learn easier than others. They will quickly learn that the bed is the best place to take a nap, that a plant can be turned into a comfortable bed and that snow is cold but great fun too.
They will quickly learn that they like being petted and may even prefer a ride in the wagon to running on their own.
