Cockapoos don’t shed like regular dogs. You might discover a few stray hairs on the couch, but there’s nothing to be too concerned about, like if you’re allergic to pet hair. If you brush the dog regularly, there might be some hair on the brush, just like your own. The Cockapoo doesn’t really shed, and it’s because of the non-shedding quality passed on from the Poodle. They are also very soft. The Cockapoo needs to be brushed and combed regularly. It is believed that the breed is little to no shedding because it’s Poodle-based, but it will shed even less if you comb and brush it regularly. That is great news for people in the house who might be allergic to dog dander. Clipping is needed at least once each year. Just because the Cockapoo is low-maintenance, doesn’t mean it’s no maintenance. You still have to get a brush out and go to work on it regularly. It needs to be taken in and groomed annually. Even though this dog will give you far less mess than other breeds, it’s not completely zero-maintenance.
The Cockapoo is a small dog, and so there is generally less shedding. You generally don’t see a lot of hairs with a lot of dog that is incredibly small, and already has a non-shedding coat to begin with. There are four different sizes of Cockapoo, and some of them are even smaller than the original size of Cockapoo. There is a Teacup Toy Cockapoo that is under six pounds, there is a Toy Cockapoo that is just under 12 pounds, there is Miniature Cockapoo that is between 13 and 18 pounds, and there is a Standard or Maxi Cockapoo that can reach up to 19 pounds in weight. Generally, people purchase this dog because it is a non-shedding dog. It mixes the affable characteristics of the Cocker Spaniel with the generally short-shedding coat of the Poodle. It is a dog that has the best of both worlds for a lot of pet owners that wouldn’t otherwise get a dog at all, because of all its difficult maintenance problems. The Cockapoo is a small dog, whatever size you get it at, and it is not going to be a difficult to clean up after, especially since it sheds so little to begin with. The Cockapoo has been known to make some pet owners grow a little attached, because of its great personality.
