A cross breed of the Cocker Spaniel and the Poodle, the Cockapoo is recognized as the very first designer dog breed. They are small in size, affectionate, energetic and very intelligent. While the exact origins of the Cockapoo breed are unknown, they have become increasingly popular since the 1960’s. Cherished for their even temperament, low shedding hair, and small size, Cockapoo’s pack a lot of personality and style into a small package.
Appearance and Grooming
The Cockapoo inherits the Poodle’s hypoallergenic low-shedding coat so you can rest assured your home won’t be covered in pet hair. Brushing the coat of the Cockapoo once a day is the best way to make sure that both the dog and your home stay clean. Their soft coats can range from straight to slightly curly or wavy. Because these dogs have hair in place of fur, they do need to be groomed regularly. When it comes to color options, considering that both the Cocker Spaniel and Poodle come in a wide range of coat colors, the Cockapoo will offer the same broad spectrum of colors and color combinations.
Known for their extreme affection and sociability, these dogs exude a cheerful and friendly personality. They take to training well and are quick learners and eager to please their owner. On the other hand if they are not shown the love and attention that they need they become bored have been known to exhibit destructive behavior.
Family and Companionship
Full of love and positive energy the cockapoo is perfect for anyone who is seeking companionship. As a companion dog, the Cockapoo is the perfect fit for any dog lover that looks for a pleasant and easy-going dog. They love running around and playing as much as lounging on the couch next to your side. They are extremely family-friendly, senior friendly and will thrive amongst kids of any age.
Your new puppy will need to enjoy daily walks and short play sessions. Fetch or allowing the dog to run and burn its energy will keep it not just happy, but also healthy and in a great shape. So, you will need to dedicate approximately a half an hour to your dog every single day, taking it on walks, playing with it, and making sure it has the physical activity it needs.
Training and Socialization
Their high intelligence and desire to please their owners combine to make a breed that excels in training. It is important to ensure that their training is started at an early age and is followed through to ensure that behavioral problems don’t present themselves throughout adolescence. Because these pups are always eager to please they show a lot of sensitivity to being scolded. Any negative interaction can greatly affect your little pup’s mood and development. This breed excels at agility training and solving puzzles, so ensuring that your regimen includes these activities is recommended for both a healthy and happy companion.

We just received our precious fur baby today and I didn’t want to waste one minute expressing how pleased I have been with the whole experience with Premier Pups! From the moment we found her Premier Pups made the adoption process so easy. I highly recommend them! We are absolutely in love with our girl! Her temperament is great, you can tell she has been well taken care of! Thanks you!
Gotcha day for Storm was 1 year ago! He is such a happy and healthy pup filled with LOADS of energy. He loves to greet everyone with lots of kisses. He has been a great addition to our household. Premier pups made the delivery process easy and communication/ customer service was fast. I enjoyed that they continue to check in on how the puppy is adjusting to the new home.
Premier pups was a pleasure to work with they were very flexible and knowledgeable!
We had purchased our maltipoo, Tito, in September of 2019 and enjoyed every moment of his sweet personality and fun spirit! Although he is quite the snuggle bug we decided to look into a “buddy” for him to keep company during the workday and grow up with! We had such an incredible experience the first time around with Premier Pups it was our only option when looking for a new fur baby! We were interested in a few along the way..... BUT just like in life “Everything happens for a reason” and Ripp (aka Shazam) was the perfect fit for our family! He is sweet, playful, has learned all the commands and loves us just as much as we do him! Thank you for filling our hearts with the healthiest and cutest pups in the neighborhood!

We got our sweet girl, Luna (formally Sperry), came home to us on November 2nd. We have had her about 3ish months now and is the sweetest girl. She is the most “human” dog we have ever owned. I swear she understands us and knows when we are talking to her. She is one of the best decisions we have made and totally worth the price. The transition getting her was smooth and she’s been easy to train. We are so very very thankful for her!
This is our sweet baby Norman. He is the most lovable and kind animal. He always wants to give hugs and kisses and everyone in the neighborhood knows him. I had the best experience at Premier Pups. I am grateful for my puppy and all the love he gives us. I would get 10 more Normans if I could.
This is my first experience buying a puppy but Premier Pups made it so easy. They literally have the best customer service of anywhere I’ve every shopped and it’s very evident they have a great love for the puppies. Lacie, customer care agent, was amazing. Daisy was flown to me with a stop in DC. The second leg was cancelled due to snow storms. Lacie found a kennel to keep her overnight and stayed on the phone with the airline the next day until the flight took off. She constantly texted me with updates (flight kept getting delayed). Premier Pups sends emails with next steps needed for puppy with detailed descriptions and calls several times to check in. Daisy has fit into my family well and is so sweet. I recommend PP’s to anyone buying a new puppy. They are by far the best!
premier pups is incredible! we had never bought a dog before this and it was hard to find a breeder we trust. after finding premier from a friend who also had a great experience we knew it was right! not long after we found out baby marley! they kept updating us, sending pictures and videos and on the day we drove to the airport ! we waited in line with a bunch of other people that got dogs from premier too! marley came with all the things he needed even though he already had a built in petco at home:) anyways he’s an angel and we’ve had him for a couple months now. very easy to train, he absolutely loved his crate and spends lots of time there with a door open and all, and he’s just so sweet. i truly wouldn’t but from any other place.
We lost our puppy of 10 years and I didn’t think I would ever get another dog. But life without a dog was the worst! So while looking online I saw premier pups and read all of the reviews and then there he was! Patagonia. From the first call to the flight to the follow up phone calls they have been nothing short of amazing. I have loved this entire experience. Thanks premier pups!!!
