If you love Cocker Spaniels, but are looking for dogs that don't shed, then you are looking for a mini Cockapoo, teacup Cockapoo, or toy Cockapoo puppy! Cockapoos puppies are completely people-oriented, extremely intelligent, and have a very friendly and cheerful personality. They are so sweet that you'll never be left without a friend! Toy Cockapoo puppies are known for being affectionate family dogs that love their owner or family.
They are considered very social animals and do well with others: both people and pets. They’re happy running around an agility course, showing off their tricks to company, being snuggled as a therapy dog, or just hanging out on your lap.
Mini Cockapoos are a designer dog breed resulting from a cross between a cocker spaniel and Poodle. Although the Mini Cockapoo breed is not recognized by the AKC, they have become a very popular dog in a relatively short period of time. Toy Cockapoo puppies can live much longer than the larger standard or maxi Cockapoo.
The average mini or teacup Cockapoo life expectancy ranges anywhere from 13 to 16 years, with some living as long as 20 years. Being a hybrid breed, teacup Cockapoos can also have coats that encompass the broad range of coat colors, providing all kinds of beautiful coats for you to love and snuggle with daily!

A Cockapoo is a cross between the cocker spaniel and the poodle. It is most often bred to a toy poodle or a miniature Poodle. When a Cocker Spaniel is bred to a standard poodle, it is called a maxi Cockapoo. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed.
Cockapoo puppies are great family dogs. They have a moderate level of energy, but that doesn't mean they'll lie around all day. They enjoy a good walk and need it to keep them from becoming overweight. The best type of exercise, though, is a good play session in the backyard. Expect them to need at least 15 minutes of exercise every day. Cockapoos are an adaptable breed. Mini Cockapoos can live in an apartment, though the smaller varieties seem to do better there than the maxi or standard Cockapoos. None of them should live outdoors or in kennels, since they've been bred to be companion dogs.
They thrive when with their family and can suffer from separation anxiety when left for long periods of time and that can lead to excessive barking and destructive behavior. Crate training benefits every dog and is a kind way to ensure that your teacup Cockapoo doesn't have accidents in the house or get into things he or she shouldn't.
A crate is also a place where they can retreat for a nap. Crate training at a young age will also help your teacup Cockapoo accept confinement if they ever need to be boarded or hospitalized. Don't stick your mini Cockapoo in a crate all day long. It's not a jail, and he shouldn't spend more than a few hours at a time in it except when he's sleeping at night. Teacup Cockapoos are people dogs and they aren't meant to spend their lives locked up in a crate or kennel.
If you're looking for a Cockapoo and are not sure what size best suits your needs, here is a brief list of names and sizes to help. When a Cocker Spaniel is bred with a standard Poodle, the resulting mix is commonly called a standard Cockapoo or a maxi Cockapoo. When bred with a miniature Poodle, they're called a miniature or mini Cockapoo. If a Cocker Spaniel is bred with a toy or teacup Poodle, the resulting Cockapoo is generally called a toy Cockapoo, teacup Cockapoo, or a tiny toy Cockapoo. Occasionally when these are bred down another generation, you'll have the rare micro Cockapoo that’s just a smaller version of the above Cockapoo puppy.
These tiny 5-10 LBS puppies are ideal for small apartments and city life because they require less space than larger varieties.
These sweet puppies are still small enough for travel and apartment life but their size is great for little kids and family life.
