Cockapoo History

Recognized as the first designer hybrid breed, the Cockapoo, also referred to as “the Cockerpoo” or “the Cockapoodle”, is a cross between a purebred Cocker Spaniel and a purebred Miniature Poodle. The Cockapoo was first introduced during the 1960’s, in the United States, as highly intelligent, agile, calm, and happy pups with hypoallergenic coats. Soon after their introduction to the world, with an instant rise in popularity, the Cockapos would be known for their three generations. A first-generation Cockapoo (known as an F1 Cockapoo) is when the puppy has a purebred Cocker Spaniel parent and a purebred Mini Poodle parent.  A second-generation Cockapoo (known as an F1B Cockapoo) is when a puppy has an F1 Cockapoo parent and a purebred Mini Poodle parent. A third generation Cockapoo (known as an F2 Cockapoo) is when a puppy has two Cockapoo parents.  By crossing the Cocker Spaniels – known for their sweet and calm demeanor, affectionate nature, and wonderful personality – with the Poodles – known for their brilliant mind, athletic body, loyal personality and gorgeous hypoallergenic coat – professional breeders hoped to create a new breed that would possess all of the great qualities of the two amazing parent breeds, with an added bonus of hybrid vigor. The Cockapoo popularity has steadily risen around the world for decades. From one place to the next, the Cockapoo has become a favorite among designer breeds.
