Known for their friendly and affectionate nature, Cockapoos combine the outgoing and loving personality of the Cocker Spaniel with the intelligence and low-shedding coat of the Poodle. This makes them particularly popular among families and individuals seeking a sociable, trainable, and hypoallergenic pet.

Cockapoos are known for being adaptable, getting along well with children and other pets, and fitting into various living environments. Currently the Cockapoo is not recognized as a breed by any of the major kennel clubs.
