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! Cockapoo 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!

Are Cockapoos Good Family Dogs?
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.

Standard or Maxi Cockapoo
Great for homes that want a doodle but don’t want an extra-large dog, than this is the dog for you!
Cockapoos come with many names or terms, here are the most common: American Cockapoo, Cockadoodle, Cockerdoodle, Cockerpoo, Cock-A-Poo, Cock A Poo, maxi Cockapoo, mini Cockapoo, miniature Cockapoo, Spoodle, standard Cockapoo, toy Cockapoo, teacup Cockapoo, tiny toy Cockapoo, and micro Cockapoo.
Do Cockapoos have Health Problems?
As with all purebred dog breeds, both cocker spaniels and poodles have certain genetic inherited health issues. A Cockapoo puppy should come from parents that have both been health tested. At Little Teton Doodles, we health test all our parents before breeding to ensure we’ll have healthy puppies! The lifespan of a toy Cockapoo, mini Cockapoo, or teacup Cockapoo is typically around 10-15 years; however, it depends upon several factors, including weight, activity level, diet, and overall lifestyle. Also, size at adulthood can be a factor. For example, smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger dogs.
The Cockapoo has a single, long coat that can range from straight to loose curls, but it shouldn’t be kinky. Teacup Cockapoos can be found in all the colors and color combinations that are seen in both Cocker Spaniels and Poodles — a more rich variety of coat colors than is usual in many other breeds. The mini Cockapoo is usually seen au naturel, but many people like to clip the coat. However, it should only be trimmed to two to three inches in length. Hair around the eyes should be trimmed to allow visibility and the coat should be brushed daily. To retain coat oils and health, they only need to be bathed when absolutely necessary.
Because his floppy Cocker Spaniel ears block air circulation, the ears must be checked and cleaned weekly to prevent ear infections. Gently wipe out the ear — only the part you can see! — with a baby wipe moistened with a cleaning solution recommended by your veterinarian. (Don’t stick cotton swabs or anything else into the ear canal, because that could damage it.) Your Cockapoo may have an ear infection if the inside of the ear smells bad, looks red, seems tender, or he frequently shakes his head or scratches at his ear.
Mini Cockapoos are known to be reliably happy, fun-loving, energetic, and sociable. Cockapoos are usually friendly. Your pup’s parents should both be friendly, because those traits do carry to the puppy. It is important to make sure you socialize your puppy well. Toy Cockapoos respond very well to training, since both their parent breeds are known for their intelligence.
Micro Cockapoos have an infectious zest for life that spreads to everyone around them, that essential love of life that makes every day a celebration. These guys are just plain happy to be alive. The Cocker Spaniel is known for having a sweet and stable temperament, before the breed’s popularity skyrocketed after the film Lady and the Tramp; and second, the Poodle’s orientation to people evens out the cockers’ orientation to their noses when they’re out in the field.
Mini Cockapoos don’t require the level of grooming that Poodles do and people don’t automatically react as negatively as they do to a Poodle’s extravagant grooming style for showing in conformation. Of course, there’s a world of difference between an intentional breeding of carefully selected Cocker Spaniels and Poodles versus a Poodle mix who’s just called a Cockapoo because no one has any clue what his background really is. The true Cockapoo has been bred with the goal of a healthy, hypoallergenic dog with a good temperament.
