Cockapoo Temperament

cockapoo-tempThe Cockapoo is a hybrid designer dog that’s a mix between an American or English Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. It has the best attributes of both dogs, with the congenial, affable, and playful temperament of a Cocker Spaniel and the short, hypoallergenic coat of a Poodle. You’re looking at a low-maintenance, friendly, and chummy dog that’s going to give you the best of both worlds. The Cockapoo has been around since the 1950s, and it’s by no means a new designer dog that’s just starting to strut its off in the designer dog world.

Cockapoos tend to be healthy and happy dogs. It’s a small dog, and it’s designed to be a companion dog. It’s very long-lived, and it’s not unheard of for Cockapoos to live up to 15 years or more, which makes a lot of Cockapoo owners pleased because the Cockapoo temperament is such a good one to be around.

Cockapoos are lively, outgoing, and loving. They are active and intelligent, and they tend to thrive when they are able to do a lot of regular exercise. However, in a pinch, they can do with 15 minutes of exercise per day. They are highly agile, and they like “retrieve” games, and they like activities like swimming. They are extremely sociable dogs, so you shouldn’t get one of these if you can’t handle their sociability requirements. If you leave it alone for long periods of time, it will get anxiety and depression.

Cockapoos are highly sociable, and they are stranger-friendly. These are great dog park dogs. They are not too territorial, and they are highly trainable. They are also friendly around other dogs, and they have a high amount of alertness and intelligence. They are also friendly around cats. They are apartment-friendly too, so you can get this dog if you live in a small apartment and want a small companion lap dog to keep you company. They are highly affectionate too, and they are very adaptable.

The Cockapoo is a crossbreed, but that doesn’t make it any less of a dog. That makes it more of a dog. It’s got the best characteristics of two stellar dog breeds, and you are in for a treat, pun intended, if you are purchasing this little breed. If you’re not absolutely certain whether you want to own a dog or not, this could be a good starter dog. They have an excellent temperament, and they require very little maintenance. These dogs are perfect for first-time dog owners that don’t want a lot of hassle, and want a highly trainable, and sweet little companion dog.

The Cockapoo, and don’t let the name fool you, is no bad dog. It’s one of the sweetest crossbreeds there is, and, in general, when you purchase a crossbreed, you are getting the best of both worlds. These are called designer dogs for a reason. They were designed to meet certain pet owners’ needs for an excellent dog. The Cockapoo temperament can’t be beaten if you’re looking for a companion.

    I have 2 cockapoos who are from the same litter & are now 11years old. I have had them since they were 8 weeks old. I absolutely love them! They were easy to train, so affectionate, love people & just love to give kisses. It;s so much fun to have 2 of them. They follow me all over the house. Stay in the same room that I’m cleaning, Stay outside with me when I’m gardening. They get so much love but they give back 10 times more. I swear they understand what I’m saying to them. I think it’s very important to train them from a young age & very important to be consistent. I used to take their food bowls away & give them back, same with their treats & toys, this really taught them not to be possessive. They do need to be brushed regularly & groomed every 6-8 weeks or they will get knots in their fur. They are the best little companions!

    I have a cockapoo that is a rescue from a puppy mill. Since I rescued her 2 1/2 years ago her personality has developed into the sweetest and most loving dog I have ever owned… That being said, I have another elderly rescue that is a half blind, half deaf Pekingese that is also very loving and has always been very loving toward my cockapoo but not other dogs. Now in the past 6 months or longer, my cockapoo has random aggression attacks on the Pekingese. It is not food, treat or attention dominant. I cannot figure it out and I fear for my elderly Pekingese but I am also worried about my cockapoo. She has come so far from being rescued… I don’t know if something is triggering trauma or if there is another underlying factor that I need to address. If anyone has any answers please help!
