      About Cockapoos

      The Cockapoo is a mixed breed, achieved by crossing a Cocker Spaniel with a Poodle. This breed is one of the older "designer" breeds, dating back to the 1960s. Cockapoos are completely people-oriented, compassionate, intelligent and make excellent pets for families with children. These adorable dogs tend to be small in size, but have huge personalities! Cockapoos are intelligent and excel at many things, including agility and therapy.

      Did You Know?

      The American Cocker Spaniel is generally used to create the Cockapoo, but some are created with Poodles and English Cocker Spaniels. The latter of the two is often called a Spoodle, and some efforts have been made to clearly separate the two different hybrids.

      Origin

      The Cockapoo is an old type of designer dog, whose popularity since the 60's may have arisen from an accidental breeding. Nevertheless, the result was a breed of dog that has been praised for its intelligence, low-shedding coat, and easygoing nature.
