How can I tell if my cockapoo will be Curly?
Cockapoos will not necessarily be curly. You will not know for sure until they start to grow their adult coat from around 6 months old. To have a greater chance of producing a curly-coated Cockapoo an experienced breeder will breed an F1b litter where there is a larger Poodle gene pool.

They are also extremely clever and easy to train, without being “too” clever – if you catch my drift.
Can a cockapoo be used as a water dog?
Poodles are known to be water retrieving dogs, who retrieve fowl from lakes and rivers. Fast forward to the cockapoo and it’s no surprise that they love to swim. In fact their coats mean that they are ideally suited to water as they are ever so slightly water repellant.
When to take a break from grooming a cockapoo?
If you sense your dog getting anxious or stressed out during grooming take a break. This is, especially common when you visit a groomer but can also apply when you are grooming the dog yourself. It is also important to know when your Cockapoo has had enough and stop grooming.
When do Cockapoos start to change their coat?

Is it bad to shave a cockapoo’s coat?
Shaving down the Cockapoo’s coat to help him stay cooler during summer is a terrible mistake. This will leave the dog’s skin exposed to sunburns and UV rays. The dog’s coat is designed to keep him warm in winter and cooler during summer and this is the reason why they shed.
Can a cockapoo be clipped into a teddy bear?
Importantly – don’t brush the coat whilst it is drying. Tight Curly coated Cockapoos present an almost impossible task to keep them with full length coats as they matt very readily, so most are clipped into a Teddy Bear trim as mentioned above.
