Cockapoo

I was very impressed with the concierge service. He was always ready to answer any questions I had. I liked the checklist of getting ready for a new puppy. The service we received was exceptional. We are very pleased with our new puppy and he has been a great addition to our family!

Cockapoo Characteristics

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.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Determined

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 Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
