FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions.

Male or Female?


My choice is usually for the puppy that I like best no matter which sex. 

Spay/neuter should be done as soon as your vet will allow it to be done. This will guarantee that the marking behavior will never become an issue. Yes, a female dog may mark just like a male. It is not as common, but it can happen. 

Temperament differences are more obvious in puppies that are not fixed, and are allowed to mature with their natural sex hormones unaltered.  
Males tend to potty train quicker, and can be a bit more calm in temperament.
Females generally end up smaller, but certainly not always.

F1, F1b, F2, multi generational...What's the difference?

Please read this note about the genetic designation for cockapoo puppies. First of all, I want to stress that all of our breeding dogs must pass dna tests that clear them for producing puppies that do not have the genetic disease and defects that can crop up out of otherwise healthy, non-tested parents!
Our first generation puppies - F1 are bred from a pure cocker spaniel and a pure poodle parent. It is important to note that there are different sizes within the poodle breed (very small to very large!), and two different types of cocker spaniel (english and american). We use mini, sized poodles because of their superior temperament and medium build. Our cocker spaniels are only american, most with champion lineage which translates to your cockapoo pup being well formed, structurally sound, with a plush coat.
Our F1b cockapoo puppies are bred from a pure poodle parent and a cockapoo parent. 
Many people love our F1b puppies because they are the ones that are not only non-shed, but are even more hypo allergenic than other generations of cockapoo puppies! This is a great benefit to people who are worried about dog allergies. (Remember to consult you physician before purchasing any dog or puppy if allergies are a concern!)

Our multi generational cockapoos are bred from two dna tested cockapoos.


Since many F2 cockapoo puppies have shedding coats, we do not breed the F2 cockapoos. Many breeders will tell you to only to purchase a F1 cockapoo puppy. This is because there are cockapoo breeders who breed shedding cockapoos. In fact, if the parents are not tested for coat quality, an F1 cockapoo could possibly shed as well! This is why it is good to purchase from a breeder who does dna testing for coat quality as well as for health. 

All of our multi generational puppies have at least one multi generational parent which has a dna'd non-shed coat just like our poodles. This is important because most people looking for a cockapoo puppy are wanting a non-shed coat. 

So why do we breed multi generational cockapoos? It is because of the amazing quality we achieve through our breeding methods. Much like the f1b, these pups have lower dander counts than the F1 cockapoo has. This is good news for allergy sufferers.

We have for years selected champion line AKC American Cocker Spaniels with great temperaments, and non-shed AKC Mini Poodles for our breedings. This produces amazing plush, non-shed coats in our multi gen cockapoos, as well as excellent temperaments, and structure that we are not seeing many other breeders achieve.

We have sold our multi gen cockapoos to many well known breeders in the doodle world to be bred into their golden doodles, labradoodles and cobber-dogs! These breeders as seeing excellent results in quality and smaller, medium sizes for their puppies!

Since many F2 cockapoo puppies have shedding coats, we do not breed the F2 cockapoos. Many breeders will tell you to only to purchase a F1 cockapoo puppy. This is because there are cockapoo breeders who breed f2 cockapoos, some of which (not all) are shedding cockapoos. This is usually unavoidable in the F2 generation. In fact any generation of cockapoo could possibly shed if the breeder has not tested the puppy's parents to make sure the union will only produce non-shedding pups! This is why it is good to purchase from a breeder who does dna testing for coat quality as well as for health.
