Due to many requests for tails to be left on our cockapoo pups, we will no longer be docking tails unless requested between the 3rd and 5th day after birth of a pup that is being purchased with a deposit in hand. We will however have the dew claws removed. After having a litter that did not get tails done on time we found them to be so adorable and have so much personality with the tails, we decided they are better left on. 🙂

Lifespan: Generally 14 to 18 years, even into the 20’s.
Activity Level: They adapt well to apartments and homes, but are also “at home” on the largest farm. They have a moderate activity level. Cockapoos are not meant to be outside dogs.
Male vs Female: Female cockapoos tend to pick on family member as their person, where male cockapoos tend to be close to the whole family.
Cockapoos are gaining in popularity because they are so easily trained and generally mild mannered. Make sure you are getting a true Cockapoo and not some other mix passed off as a Cockapoo!
Cockapoos are smart and generally healthy. They make good family pets and companions.
COCKAPOO TEMPERAMENT: The Cockapoo is a very people oriented, outgoing, and happy, dog. With a clown like personality, this breed appeals to the young and old alike. Their forgiving nature makes it unparalleled as a child’s dog. They are as much at home in an apartment as they are on the biggest farm. So if you are looking for a dog that wants to play when you want to play, sleep when you want to sleep, or cuddle and watch TV, then the Cockapoo is for you!
WHAT IS AN F1?:
F1 stands for First Generation, taking a full cocker spaniel and breeding it to a full poodle of any size. That is all we raise at this time.
F2 is taking two first generation cockapoos and breeding them together. This continues on with F3, F4, and so on.
The (b) comes in with being bred-back to a poodle or cocker spaniel with a F1 or multi generational cockapoo. So if you took a F1 cockapoo and went back to a full poodle or cocker spaniel, you would have an F1b.
