A cockerpoo is a mix between a cocker spaniel and a poodle, depending on the type of poodle the size can vary greatly. They have become immensely popular in recent years, which is no wonder as they are very cute and beautiful dogs. They are affectionate dogs that often have a cheerful disposition and lots of energy. They want to join their families on adventures and need both mental stimulation and exercise to feel good.

They come in many different colours and coat types. A Cockerpoo can have a curly, wavy or straight coat. The curly coat often does not shed. It is often said that cockerpoos are hypoallergenic dogs, this may be the case - but not always. There is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic dog, it depends on the individual. The coat needs to be trimmed a few times a year and can be trimmed down during the hot summer months. Brush the coat regularly to avoid tangles.

Of course, the dog's claws need to be taken care of! Claws should be clipped as needed, but a recommendation is not to wait too long, once a month may be sufficient. It's better to clip a little and often than a lot and rarely. You need to get your dog used to having its claws clipped from an early age, in the claw clipping course we give you our best tips on how to clip your dog's claws!

Skin problems
You with a cockerpoo need to be aware that there is a risk of them suffering from skin problems such as allergies. Just like us humans, dogs can be allergic to something in their environment as well as something in their food. Learn more about the different types of allergies and what the symptoms are here.

It is important that they are socialised and environmentally trained from the time they are small puppies to ensure they become confident individuals who fit into your life. You can learn more about socialisation and environmental training in this course. As Cockerpoos are often friendly and happy dogs who are happy to greet both other dogs and people, it is important that you practice how to greet others.
