Characteristics & Facts
A lovable breed with a fun-loving personality and plenty of energy
The Cockapoo is a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. As it can be bred from a wide variety of parents, its appearance and size can vary greatly, as can its character traits. Generally, Cockapoos are extremely friendly, easily trained, energetic dogs whose curly coats, low-shedding coats are particularly good for allergy sufferers.
Size: Small to medium
Coat: Curly or wavy long-haired coats that need regular brushing
Exercise: 1 hour daily, plus plenty of mental stimulation

Breed group: A cross between a Cocker Spaniel (Gundog) and a Poodle (Utility)
Temperament: Intelligent, friendly, outgoing
Combined the Cocker Spaniel and Poodle breeds make a completely people-oriented hybrid who’s intelligent enough to train easily, hardly sheds, forgives quickly, and is so affectionate that you’ll never feel alone. In fact, you might even have to shut the bathroom door for a minute of privacy.
Your hybrid buddy will also be 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.
