Unsurprisingly, Cockapoos are one of the oldest designer breeds. This breed is a crossbreed between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. A crossbreed that creates one of the most adorable animals on planet Earth.
Thanks to this, Cockapoos are always in high demand among prospective dog owners. New owners can’t seem to resist their puppy eyes.
Due to the high demand, Cockapoos are rarely ever seen at rescues and shelters. Nobody wants to give these dogs up once they get one inside their home. Truthfully, they’re the perfect companion for any family.

You’re probably wondering what makes these dogs so unique. What makes them different from other dogs?
This article will explore precisely that and list eight different reasons why you need a Cockapoo in your life.
In response, you’ll probably search your local shelters to adopt one of these sweet dogs. Once you do adopt one, you surely won’t regret your decision. Let’s have a look at some reasons for Cockapoo adoption.
Cockapoos are Allergy Friendly
Contents and Quick Navigation
There’s a myth within the dog community that some breeds are hypoallergenic. But this isn’t true. A particular dog coat type doesn’t cause allergies. Dander causes them, otherwise known as the dead skin cells shed by dogs and humans.
Despite this, certain dog breeds are better suited for people with allergies. One of these breeds is the Cockapoo. It’s because they don’t shed much. Therefore, the dead skin cells that cause allergic reactions won’t come into contact with the person suffering from these allergies.
Don’t ever think you can’t get a dog because you’re allergies are too severe. You just need to find the right dog. The Cockapoo is that dog.
They’re Extremely Cute
Their extreme cuteness will be the first thing that will suck you into getting a cockapoo. Honestly, Cockapoos might be the cutest animal on this planet.
They have these perfect puppy dog eyes that make it impossible to say no (they will use to their advantage). Don’t get me started on their fur. It’s almost too much.
The Cockapoo is your breed if you’re looking for a dog to show off. You won’t be able to go anywhere without a stranger mentioning your Cockapoo’s cuteness.
Because of this, Cockapoos are the stars anywhere they go, and by getting one, you’ll end up becoming a star too. They’re the celebrities of dog breeds, and that celebrity status will extend to you.
Great with Children
Unlike other small breeds, such as Chihuahua, Cockapoos aren’t prone to aggressiveness.
You can feel comfortable leaving them alone with your kids without worrying about them snapping.
Kids will poke, squeeze or pull on a dog to see its reaction. They’re curious, after all. In this regard, Cockapoos will offer you peace of mind. Of course, they will protect themselves, but they’re more tolerant of this behaviour than other dogs.
Just teach your kids these behaviours aren’t allowed. Then, your Cockapoo will be their new best friend. Most likely, your Cockapoo will end up loving your kids more than they love you.
Don’t Demand a lot of Exercise
Cockapoos aren’t a breed that needs a constant source of exercise. You don’t need a consistent exercise regime to keep these guys from getting bored. They’re relatively low maintenance and can keep themselves busy.
However, this doesn’t mean Cockapoos don’t need exercise. Walking them two times a day will do wonders for your brand-new Cockapoo. This makes a Cockapoo perfect for somebody that has to work during the day. They’re also a great dog breed for somebody who lives in a city.
Moreover, If you’re planning to exercise with your cockapoo, you should ensure that he/she is fed adequately with a suitable type of food.
Honestly, taking them out before and when you return from work should satisfy their exercise needs. This is a small workload for a dog owner compared to some breeds.
The Cockapoo’s friendliness isn’t just reserved for kids. It spreads towards all people and animals, making the Cockapoo a perfect pet.
Your new cockapoo will probably become best friends with your other dogs or even your cat. Cockapoos are rare in this context. They’re known to be extremely friendly to their feline siblings.
Their laid-back attitude tends to make them seek out other animals as friends. There’s nothing cuter than watching a Cockapoo and a cat playing around the house together.
The downside of this friendliness is you’ll have to teach them jumping on guests isn’t okay. No matter the Cockapoo, this will happen. It’s a side effect of being the little balls of happiness these dogs represent. They will also get along with cats pretty well if introduced correctly.
Easy to Train
In the previous section, a side effect of their friendliness, jumping on guests, was mentioned. This side effect isn’t a big deal because Cockapoos are extremely intelligent.
Their high level of intelligence comes from their Poodle side. Due to this, Cockapoos are very eager to follow commands. Their eagerness means teaching them to stop jumping on guests is something that will be quite easy.
All in all, this willingness to accept training is a godsend. Don’t underestimate the frustration of trying to housetrain a dog who will not take to your training methods. Free yourself from this experience and adopt a Cockapoo.
They Don’t Have a Strong Natural Smell
One of the biggest worries among prospective dog owners is that dogs will stink up their houses and clothes. Thankfully, Cockapoos are relatively odourless compared to other dogs.
There isn’t anything about their natural smell that will make your couches stink. In light of this, there’s no reason to keep your little Cockapoo off the sofa. A good thing considering they’ll be relentless about getting on the couch and cuddling with you.
Of course, this benefit goes out the window when they start rolling around outside. Cockapoos love rolling around in the dirt and digging up the yard. When they’re outside, watch them carefully to ensure your garden stays intact.
Any Cockapoo will have a soft, puffy coat making them the perfect cuddle companion. Cuddling’s probably a Cockapoo’s favourite activity. They love cuddling so much that it almost becomes annoying sometimes.
See, Cockapoos are relentless when it comes to cuddling. They’ll sink into your side and sleep for hours without you knowing they’re there. On the rare times you don’t want to cuddle: they’ll sneak in and demand it from you anyway.
Of course, you’ll give in because you can’t say no to a Cockapoo. Those eyes aren’t something you can easily deny.
Given these eight reasons, there’s no way you’ll end up regretting adopting a Cockapoo. It’s time to give in and decide to adopt one of these extraordinary animals. Now, all you need to do is go out, find one, and bring them home.
