Cockapoos were one of the first modern “designer dogs” – an adorable mix of hypoallergenic, intelligent Poodles, and friendly, fun-loving Cocker Spaniels. These dogs are small but pack big personalities and massive amounts of affection. They get along great with everyone in the family and are easy to train and care for. If their exercise needs are met, Cockapoos make great companions for nearly any living environment.
Cockapoos (also known as Cockapoodle, Cockerpoo, or Cock-a-Poo) are a mixed breed of the Poodle and Cocker Spaniel. Their coats often have long, soft curls that can come in a variety of colors including red, blue, black, apricot, brown, white, and cream. Thanks to the Poodle in them, they don’t shed, but do need regular brushing.
Cockapoos have an outgoing nature and will get along nicely with everyone they meet. They have a moderate energy level and require daily exercise to stay healthy and well-behaved.
Being highly intelligent, Cockapoos are pretty easy to train. They don’t bark as much as other guard-dog breeds, but they will bark when they see anyone approaching the home.
Cockapoos are a smaller breed. They are generally classified into one of four size categories:
Teacup Toy: Grows to less than 6 pounds in weight and less than 10 inches tall.
Toy Cockapoo: Grows to weigh up to 12 pounds and up to 10 inches in height but with a bigger build than the Teacup.
Miniature Cockapoo: Grows to weigh between 13 and 18 pounds and 11 and 14 inches in height.
Standard Cockapoo: Grows to weigh over 19 pounds and at least 15 inches tall.
The breed is generally quite healthy and enjoys an average lifespan of 12 to 15 years.
How dog-friendly is Illinois?
Illinois loves its pets! The state ranks very high for pet care, safety, and happiness. If you’re adopting a new furry friend in Illinois, you’re in a great place!
One of the top ranking sites for dog friendliness is Pawsafe. They analyze and rank each state based on factors like pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.
In their study, Pawsafe rated Illinois as the third most pet-friendly state. They found that Illinois has over 800 pet-friendly accommodations, 279 dog-friendly restaurants, 286 pet-friendly attractions, and 634 pet services.
A similar study from Safewise, another reputable ranking site, also revealed Illinois to be highly pet-friendly. They rank Illinois second just behind Washington. One of the key factors in their ranking is the high number of pet-friendly rentals in the state. In fact, 35% of rentals accept pets. This is the fourth highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals by state.
Is Chicago a pet-friendly city?
In another study, WalletHub analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly city. They ranked Chicago as the 64th most pet-friendly city. The city also scored 13th for pet health and wellness. However, Chicago is more expensive for pets, ranking 90th in terms of pet budget.
SmartAsset conducted a similar study and their ratings place Chicago in a more favorable light as the 16th most pet-friendly city.
Chicago has a lot going for pets including 570 dog friendly restaurants, 12 dog-friendly shopping centers, and 46 pet businesses for every 10,000 establishments.
A different study from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) showed that Chicago has the 52nd most dog parks per capita, with 0.9 dog parks per 100,000 residents.
A few more dog-related facts for Illinois
Despite the great numbers in Illinois, only 32% of Illinois residents own a dog, which is well below the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Chicago, the same three breeds are equally as popular, but there is also a keen interest in French Bulldogs and Rottweilers.
However, the state’s total pet ownership rate is far less than the national average as well, with only approximately 49% of Illinois families owning a pet of any kind.
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Illinois
Illinois saved 1,028 more animals in 2020 than in 2019. Out of 177 animal shelters, 126 are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is right around 82%. If Illinois can raise its save rate more, it will pass the 90% necessary to become a no-kill state. We hope they can do it!
