The Cockapoo is an adorable small dog with a huge personality and winning temperament. They can come in a larger size especially if their parent was one of the large Poodles, but normally they are more popular the smaller they are. They have been around for much longer than most hybrid dogs, dating back to the 1960s. These affectionate little dogs are completely people orientated, they adore their family and only want to please them. The Cockapoo is very intelligent and is ideal to train, picking up new tricks easily. They hardly shed any hair, and are minimal maintenance. These dogs excel at agility course work, demonstrating tricks they have learned, are ideal as a therapy dog, and just love snuggling up to you to soak up your attention.
