We breed for the healthiest, beautiful and happiest dogs possible, with great temperaments and lovable personalities.
Cockapoos tend to get along with everyone and are great companion dogs.
This is a happy dog—affectionate and sometimes comical, great temperament and a real joy to live with.
Like both Poodles and Cocker Spaniels, the Cockapoo is adaptable to different living environments.
The coat type of the Cockapoo will vary as characteristics are inherited from both the poodle and the cocker spaniel. There may even be some variety within a litter. The three possible coat types are a tight curly coat, a loose wavy/ringlet coat and a straighter coat.
F1=first generation puppy—50% purebred-A and 50% purebred-B. For example, a Cocker Spaniel to Poodle cross is first generation, resulting in healthier offspring. In this particular Cockapoo cross, hair type can be smooth like a Cocker, or wavy/shaggy, they can shed or not shed and pups in the same litter can vary. This is not the best cross for people with severe allergies.
F1b=backcross puppy—25% purebred-A and 75% purebred-B. For example, an F1 Cockapoo and Poodle cross; this is a Cockapoo bred back to Poodle— the wavy, curly, shaggy-look (poodle cross) is very consistent in coat types. F1b is the MOST likely of any Cockapoo to be non-shedding and allergy-friendly, and is the easiest coat to take care of.
Breeders who breed purebred to purebred creating a first generation hybrid believe in the heterosis effect and hybrid vigor. Vigor means "physical or mental strength, energy, or force." Unlike purebred dogs, when you adopt a hybrid, you do not know exactly what the size of the dog, or exact look of the dog will be.
"The public is under the impression that mixed breeds exhibit vigor and will not express genetic disorders," "This is simply not true."
