Cockapoo Mini

Crossbreed, Small

Doesn't moult much

Good for first time owners

The Mini – with a Toy or small Miniature Poodle parent – has all the qualities of a larger Cockapoo, but in a smaller package.


Attractive to ...

Those wanting a low-shedding breed – though be aware that the coat is unreliable in first-generation (F1) crosses. You might get more of a Cocker coat than a Poodle. F2 and F3 generations would be more predictable if you don't like surprises.

Not the best for ...

Someone that likes an independent dog. These dogs are devoted to their loved ones and time alone will be rare – even on the loo!


Cockerpoo, Spoodle, Cockerdoodle

Small enough to carry when necessary.

Exercise Needs

Medium (About an hour)
Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.


Professional help needed. Curly, keeps growing and needs cutting.


Doesn't moult much
But all dogs shed dander so if you're allergic, make sure you'll be ok
