Overview

The Cocakpoo breed is a mixed breed of dog which is breed with a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. It's an adorable dog breed with a lovely personality, temperament and a face that melts many hearts.

History & Origin

The Cockapoo breed is one of the the first "designer breeds" which dates back to 1960's. The making of the Cocakpoo was and accident but the end result of this accident has produced a breed that is intelligent, low-shedding coat, odorless and has the chilled nature of the Cocker Spaniel. Cockapoo's were first introduced into the UK about 10 years ago and have been very popular since day one with dog lovers, families and pet owners around the world thanks to their cute, charming, kind and loyal nature.

Temperament

Cocakpoos breed has become very popular because they are very adaptable, outgoing, loyal and affectionate to their owners. This breed is also highly intelligent, having inherited the characteristics and temperaments from their pure purebred parents.

Cockapoos are known to be quite active and absolutely thrive when they receive exercise on a regular basis. This breed can be very agile, and are most happy when playing games with their owners. They are known for being happy and fun loving characters that are always a pleasure to be surrounded by at home and outside life. Cockapoos love human company and can become very needy dogs which makes them not very suitable to be left alone for long periods of time. The Cockapoo breed is probably not the best breed for people who spend a lot of time at work who leave their dogs on their own at home for long periods of time. A bored Cockapoo with little mental simulation and not enough exercise will result in separation distress, anxiety, barking and being destructive around the home.

Cockapoos absolutely love games of all kinds and are known to be very agile and fast on their little feet. Just like their purebred parent and many other dog breeds, a tired dog is a well-behaved dog and the best way to tire them out is to give them lots of exercise that includes a good mix of physical and mental stimulation. They will enjoy all sorts of activities which range from agility to retrieving.
