Cockapoo Breed

A Cockapoo (aka Cockadoodle) is a mix of a mini Poodle and a Cocker Spaniel. Mini Cockapoos cross a toy Poodle with a small Cocker Spaniel, or another Cockapoo. A toy/mini Poodle crossed with a Cockapoo produces a f1b Cockapoo.

Cockapoos are friendly, happy, and the constant companion of their family members. Cockapoos were the original “Doodle”— the very first AKC dog breed to be intentionally crossed with a Poodle. Cockapoos have had enduring charm because of their health, great looks, low to non-shedding coats, and sweet personalities. Cockapoo puppies tend to be on both sides of the active spectrum: highly social and playful at times, but also easily transitions into a cuddly couch friend.

Even though they’ve been around for such a long time (relatively speaking of course) compared to other Doodle “breeds,” the ever friendly Cockapoos continue to be a fan favorite. At Crockett Doodles we have lots of families asking about adopting a happy go lucky Cockapoo.

Do Cockapoos shed?

Overall, Cockapoo are a great breed choice for those who suffer from pet allergies or who want to avoid the added mess of dog hair in their home, as they tend to be low-shedding and hypoallergenic. For those who deal with allergies, we encourage you to consider adopting a curly-coated pup. Typically, the curlier the coat, the less shedding that pup will experience as an adult. However, it’s still important to brush them regularly to reduce any shedding and keep their coat looking healthy and beautiful.
