The Cockapoo is one of the very first "designer" breeds. Cockapoos date all the way back to the 1960s.
They are a mix between a Minature Poodle and a Cocker Spaniel. These dogs are completely people-oriented, which makes them very easy to train. They are incredibly affectionate and make for great family dogs. Cockapoos are very versatile, excelling in agility, therapy work, and even trick training!
Cockapoos are very friendly, but they can be a bit sensitive. They are great with kids and other dogs. Cockapoos hardly shed and are all around very healthy dogs. They have a moderate amount of energy and only require basic exercise.
