Breed History / Description

The Cockapoo, also sometimes called the “Cockerpoo” is a cross-bred or hybrid dog composed of a mixture of a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle, usually a toy or miniature Poodle.

The Cockapoo has been around since the 1950’s when experimenting with the crossbreeding of two different pedigree dog types first became widely spread, and the first recorded deliberate Cockapoo breeding happened in the USA between American Cocker Spaniels and Poodles. The Cockapoo in the UK is usually composed of English Cocker Spaniel and Poodle crossings, although the American Cocker Spaniel is also used to a lesser extent here too. The Cockapoo, like all hybrid dogs, is not recognised as a pedigree breed in its own right, and is classed as a crossbreed or mixed breed dog by The Kennel Club, and no authoritative breed registry for this dog type currently exists.
