Cockapoos are a cross between an American or English Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle.

The result is usually an intelligent, energetic, friendly and low-shedding mixed dog.

Cockapoos inherit traits from both of their parents, so there’s no guarantee how a Cockapoo will behave or look.

They’re often described as designer dogs given their surge in popularity over the past decades.

Cockapoos are sometimes classified as hypoallergenic dogs, although this can vary depending on genes inherited by each individual Cockapoo.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at some Cockapoo pictures to give you a clear idea of the breed.

What is a Cockapoo?

Cockapoos are a cross between an American or English Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. While they’re commonly referred to as Cockapoos, some people call them Cockapoodles or spell their name Cock-a-Poo.

Cockapoo history

There are different reports of how this mixed breed came to origin. It’s generally though the first members of the Cockapoo mixed breed started to appear in the 1960s.

However, these designer dogs became increasingly popular in the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s due to the increase in demand of hypoallergenic dogs such as Goldendoodles and Labradoodles.

Cockapoos are the result of breeding between a miniature or toy Poodle and a Cocker Spaniel.

Although the American Kennel Club, Kennel Club in the UK and the United Kennel Club don’t recognise these dogs as a breed, there is a Cockapoo Club of America.

Cockapoo clubs have been created to help create consistency within the mixed breed, ensuring that breeders are adhering to a code of ethics.

Cockapoo Size

Cockapoos can have a varied size range depending on the size of the Poodle used. As we mentioned above, they’ll usually use miniature or toy Poodles to breed with their Cocker Spaniel parent.

There are four main sizes: teacup toy (under 10 inches in height, weigh less than 6 pounds), toy (up to 10 inches, weigh under 12 pounds), miniature (11 to 14 inches tall, weigh between 13 and 18 inches) and standard (at least 15 inches, weigh more than 19 pounds).

They are cuddly! They are cute! They are intelligent dogs. And they are incredibly ‘human’ – they love the human connection.

Darcy is opinionated. She will tell off any dog she doesn’t like but on the whole she hardly barks. She barks at dogs she doesn’t like and sometimes she barks at certain neighbours she doesn’t like.

I lived in a flat on the second floor in central London so it couldn’t be too big and it needed to be able to do stairs. I am obsessive about being clean – so slowly I built a list of requirements – size mattered, non or little moulting and given the proximity to neighbours, not one that is yappy – and not a breed that needed a lot of exercise. Cockapoos tend to be medium sized, most do not moult and they are intelligent dogs.

Sushi is extremely intelligent, sensitive, and very expressive. She is also very particular about her wants and needs. Example #1 – she loves cheese but will only eat “real” cheeses. She refuses to eat American, processed, or Krafts cheese. Example #2 – she loves pistachios and almonds but will not eat them unless you chew them up for her first. She wants everything done a certain way.

I love how intelligent and affectionate they [Cockapoos] are. Sushi is really good at making an emotional connection with us by staring deeply into our eyes. She makes great eye contact, and always tries so hard to understand whenever we talk.

Yes, Sushi is extremely easy to train. She currently knows about 40 commands. She is very treat motivated, praise motivated, and eager to please. I can see the frustration and determination in her eyes when she doesn’t understand a new command. Most commands that I’ve taught her only takes her 5-10 tries, then we reinforce the commands consistently after that. Doing tricks is really fun and mentally stimulating for her. The only reason that she doesn’t know more commands is because I don’t how to teach her more complicated tricks.
