An adorable, small dog with the personality of a big clown, the Cockapoo is the first of the “designer dogs” (not a “pure” dog breed), dating back to the 1960s, rather than to just a few years ago. Completely people-oriented, the Cockapoo is intelligent enough to train easily, hardly sheds, forgives quickly, and is so affectionate that you’ll never feel alone. You might even have to shut the bathroom door for a minute of privacy. They’re happy running around an agility course, showing off their tricks to company, being petted as a therapy dog, or just hanging out on your lap. Your lap is theirs, by the way.

Highlights

The Cockapoo is not known to be a barker. Some, however, will bark when they see someone approaching their house, or when they’re left alone for long periods at a time.The Cockapoo should be a nonshedding dog with little doggy odor to the skin and coat. He requires daily brushings and will need his hair trimmed and clipped occasionally.Cockapoos are usually good for people with allergies since they produce low amounts of dander and hair.Cockapoos were developed to be companion dogs and are usually friendly and extraordinarily happy. They can do well with other dogs, pets, and children; older, more considerate children are generally best, however.Although the Standard or Maxi Cockapoo doesn’t adapt as readily to apartment life as his smaller cohorts do, he can do well if exercised properly. The ideal situation is a house with a small, fenced yard.The Cockapoo is so intelligent that he’s easy to train with positive reinforcement.Cockapoos have a moderate energy level but still need daily exercise. Expect to give him at least 15 minutes per day and offer a variety of activities, such as games of fetch, walks, and good runs.To get a healthy dog, never buy a puppy from an irresponsible breeder, puppy mill, or pet store. There are many responsible Cockapoo breeders, and some are registered with either the Cockapoo Club of America or the North American Cockapoo Registry.Designer dogs, also called hybrids, aren’t true breeds — they’re crosses of two specific breeds. If you’re interested in a Cockapoo puppy, understand that his looks, size, and temperament aren’t as predictable as those of purebreds, since you don’t know which characteristics from each breed will show up in any given dog.
