If you are lucky enough to own a Cockapoo here are 10 things that you will know to be true.
1 Teddy Bears
They are the cutest puppies and are often mistaken for teddy bears. I’ll bet you know a Cockapoo called Teddy

2 Poo Pose
Cockapoos are often found fast asleep laying on their backs; this is known as the Poo Pose. You will recognise this position as it seems impossible to achieve and you will be wondering what has happened to your dog’s spine. Don’t worry its normal…for a poo!
3 Doodle Dash
The Doodle Dash also known as Zoomies is when your cockapoo will run faster than top speed in a loop for no apparent reason. This usually takes place just when you have just sat down for a quiet five minutes.
Don’t be fooled by that cute fluffy face, Cockapoos are clever dogs. The combination of spaniel and poodle, both working dogs makes for a smart dog. Cockapoos are fast learners who benefit from training and brain exercises.
5 They don’t moult
The Poodle in them means that they are unlikely to moult. This is great but it does mean that they need regular brushing and trips to the groomers to avoid matting.
Cuddling is one of the cockapoos favourite activities. Especially if you sit down with a drink in your hand, you will soon find your drink is on the floor and your cuddle monster is on your lap.
7 Velcro Dogs
Known as Velcro Dogs due to their keenness to be with you ALL the time. Even to the bathroom!
The moustache is one of the finest features of a Cockapoo.
9 Wet Socks
You own a Cockapoo you will have wet socks. When drinking the Cockapoo also makes sure to store water in his or her moustache ready to drop all over the kitchen floor ready for your socks to soak up.
10 Black Cockapoos are hard to photograph
If your Cockapoo is black your phone will be full of photographs of black blobs. If you manage to get a good one you will be sure to show everyone and share it everywhere, and you should. Well done.
I own two Cockapoos, Baxter and Pickle. They are the most loving caring dogs I could wish for. They make me smile every day. I wouldn’t be without them and I am pretty sure you wouldn’t be without yours either. You can see more photos of Baxter and Pickle on their own Instagram page.
How many of these can you relate to? Is there anything I’ve missed off? You can let me know in the comments and if you know a Cockapoo owner who’d like this please feel free to share on social media.
