The Cockapoo is one of the oldest hybrid breeds, and they have been a popular breed since the 1960s.
The first time a Poodle and Cocker Spaniel were bred together is unknown. Still, their popularity quickly grew as people learned of their pleasant temperament with low shedding.
There are several established Cockapoo clubs, but some of them differ in their approach to the breed.
Some clubs want to begin a purebred Cockapoo breed where both the father and mother would be Cockapoos. Other clubs want to continue the standard hybrid which breeds a Cocker Spaniel and Poodle together.
Overall, these clubs have promoted the Cockapoo. Some hybrids have health issues due to poor breeding, and these clubs have helped ensure responsible breeding which has helped maintain the purity and quality of the breed.
The size of a Cockapoo depends on the size of the parent Poodle. While Cocker Spaniels don’t have a lot of size variations, Poodles range from Toy Poodles to Standard Poodles.
Overall there are several sizes of Cockapoos:
Toy: 6-12 pounds in weight and under 10 inches to the shoulder.
Miniature: 13-19 pounds in weight and 10-14 inches to the shoulder.
Standard: 20-30 pounds in weight and over 15 inches at the shoulder.
Lifespans on Cockapoos will vary because it is a hybrid, and Poodles usually live longer than Cocker Spaniels.
Cockapoos will usually live 10-14 years, although they have the potential to live longer.
Cockapoos’ markings and colors vary widely. Like the Cocker Spaniel, Cockapoos have a wide variety of rich color combinations.
Cockapoos can have a solid color coat; often a variation of black, light cream, or red/brown. They can also come in multi-color; typically white with another color.
Cockapoos have a single layer long-haired coat. The hair itself will range from straight hair to tight curls depending on the puppy and hybrid.
Many people leave the coat untrimmed, but if trimming is done, a length of 2″-3″ is recommended.
Even though they don’t shed as frequently as some dogs, you should groom your Cockapoo a minimum of several times a week, and preferably daily.
A key to grooming your Cockapoo is to start when they are a puppy. If grooming is done consistently as a puppy, it becomes routine for both you and your dog.
You should not bath your Cockapoo unless it is dirty. Its coat releases natural oils which helps maintain a healthy coat, and regular bathing will remove these oils.
Because of their floppy ears, one of the most vulnerable places for a Cockapoo to be unhealthy is the ears.
You should check the inside of the ears weekly to make sure there are no ear infections. This is especially important if your Cockapoo has been wet. Because their floppy ears prevent airflow, moisture can cause ear infections.
Gently wipe out the ear, but only the part you can see. Never put cotton swabs into the ear canal!
If the inside of the ear smells bad, looks red and tender, or if your Cockapoo scratches it a lot; then there may be an ear infection.
Cockapoos are generally healthy, especially for a hybrid breed. They are susceptible to diseases that are common to dogs, particularly hip and elbow dysplasia.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or lameness if not addressed.
One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from excessive running on hard surfaces. This is especially vital when they are a puppy.
Because it is a Poodle hybrid, the Cockapoo does tend to have fewer allergens than many breeds, and usually much less than the Cocker Spaniel breed.
However, it is important to note that the actual length of a Cockapoo’s coat and exact allergen level varies between the breed. Because it is a hybrid, different puppies receive different genes from the parents, and this has a direct impact on their outer coat.
But what causes allergens? Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Any animal, including humans, shed these skin cells.
Even though they have fewer allergens, it is important to regularly groom and clean your Cockapoo to keep the dander level low.
- Can Cockapoos be good watchdogs?Like most dogs, Cockapoos can be trained to be watchdogs. However, they don’t usually have what it takes to be good watchdogs right off the bat. They are very sweet and people-oriented and tend to be stranger-friendly - not exactly watchdog material!
- Do Cockapoos have “hybrid vigor” when it comes to health?Yes. Because Cockapoos are a hybrid they have better genetic diversity than their purebred parents, meaning they are less susceptible to certain genetic diseases. First-generation (or F1) Cockapoos have the highest levels of hybrid vigor.
- Can Cockapoos be AKC registered?No. Because they are a hybrid breed Cockapoos cannot be AKC registered. Currently, AKC does not register any hybrid Poodle breeds.
- Are Cockapoos have curly hair?The exact texture of a Cockapoo’s coat depends on what genes it inherits from its parents. However, most Cockapoos’ coats are somewhere on the spectrum of wavy to curly.
- Are Cockapoos hard to groom?No, Cockapoos are not hard to groom. Because they are hybrids, the texture of their coat depends on the individual, but they typically have a single layer, wavy or curly coat that is not terrible to take care of. Some people leave their Cockapoo’s coats untrimmed, others trim them to 2”-3”. Cockapoos do not need to be bathed unless they are dirty.
- Are Cockapoos noisy?No. Cockapoos are not known to be noisy dogs. They have lower barking tendencies than some other dogs.
- Do Cockapoos get stinky?Cockapoos should be relatively stink-free under normal circumstances. However, all dogs have the potential to become stinky if they are dirty or unhealthy.
- Do Cockapoos have retrieving instincts?Both Cocker Spaniels and Poodles have hunting and retrieving instincts, so the Cockapoo is likely to have them too. How much it will have the instinct depends on the exact personality of your Cockapoo puppy.
- Are Cockapoos likely to have a strong prey drive?Yes! Cockapoos are a mix between two hunting dog breeds, so they usually have a high prey drive. Keep your Cockapoo on a leash if you don’t want him to run off chasing squirrels!
- Do Cockapoos need a lot of exercise?Cockapoos are moderately active dogs. Poodles and Cocker Spaniels are both fairly active, so your Cockapoo will need some exercise but not an excessive amount.
