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.

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.

My husband and I purchased our beautiful new furbaby Genesis this week. She was flown in on 8/29/19, my 10 year old’s SURPRISE BIRTHDAY GIFT! What a JOY Genesis has been, my son is absolutely in love with her and so are we. Premier did such an excellent job at walking us through the entire process. She came with all of her needed food to start, meds, and daily text messages to confirm she was good. I can not say enough about Premiere’s customer service, they are clearly 5 stars! We have the best puppy girl in the world, our hearts are full and we are so grateful. Thank you Premier, we highly recommend your business. Not only is a business, they truly care about the puppies and families they are going to. Blessings & Puppy Love??, Nicole Proctor
Meet Rowdy! Rowdy came to his forever home April 14, 2020. He is such an amazing pup and so full of life. He loves to play all the time! Rowdy came to us very healthy with zero issues. Premier Pups has been wonderful and i recommend using them to everyone!!
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!
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!
