Black Cockapoos

When you think of cockapoos, are you like most people and imagine them to be a light brown colour? Like many other designer breeds, cockapoos are actually available in a stunning array of different colours. One of the most handsome and a firm favourite with owners is black. A cockapoo with a black colour certainly has a very striking look to it. If you are interested in owning a black cockapoo, there are some things you may want to know. Along with some gorgeous black cockapoo images, we have put together a guide to some fascinating facts about this variation of the popular breed.

Black Cockapoo Puppies Are Often the Last to Go

Unfortunately, despite the growing popularity of black cockapoo dogs, any puppies of that colour are often the last to go. It seems, their popularity still pales in comparison to the other, more traditional cockapoo colours.

If you are looking to own a cockapoo with a black coat, this puts you at a distinct advantage, though, compared to if you were looking for one with a light brown coat.

Less Expensive Than Other Colours

Another curious thing that is likely connected to the above point is that breeders often sell any black puppy cockapoo they have in a litter for less than those with other coat colours. Especially compared to those with two-tone and tri-colour coats. With the average price of one falling just over the £1,000 mark.

Black Cockapoos And Cameras

Owners of black puppy cockapoo and black adult cockapoo have noted that the dog is a lot harder to take pictures of compared to lighter varieties of the breed. We are not really quite sure what this is the case, but we would strongly recommend that you don’t dismiss a dog based on just its photogenic qualities alone.

Black Cockapoo Dogs Can Fade

Another issue with black cockapoo dogs is that their luscious and smart black coat can fade. This is because puppies often, but not always, inherit what is known as the ‘Fading Gene’ from their poodle parent. The degree to which their coat fades varies, but when it does happen, it can cause the black to fade to either a silver, grey or similar colour.

Where to Find Black Cockapoo

At CockapooHQ we have details of many places you can find black cockapoo, whether you are interested in F1 or any other generation of this crossbreed. Along with a list of trusted breeders, we also have the details of some places where you can find rescue animals.

Some general tips for finding the black cockapoo of your dreams includes:

  • Visiting the breeder, you are interested in buying a dog from before you commit a puppy, so you can see the environment they are living in and meet the parents.
  • Only choose a breeder who is fully registered with the national cockapoo breed club.
  • Consider rescue animals. Rather than exasperating the problem of unwanted and neglected/abused pets further, think seriously about adopting a rescue animal rather than purchasing a puppy.

No matter where you decide to source your black cockapoo from, by properly researching the breed, not rushing into anything and looking at all the options open to you, you can make sure you are not ripped off.
