    Hi There! We've recently got our first dog - Maisy - a beautiful F1 Cockapoo. Whilst we love Maisy we are at out wits end over her pooing!

  2. Barking out of the crate.

    Cockapoo Training and Bonding
    Our 14 month old cockapoo Murphy has been crate trained. We're trying to get him out of it but he barks and whinges when we leave the crate door open. I understand the crate is his safe place so we've tried leaving him for shorter periods to start with but we're not getting anywhere. A few...
  3. New Cockapoo owners

    Introductions
    Hi, Our Cockapoo which we've had for 2 weeks now is a 10 week old girl called Willow. She is pitch black with a tiny bit of white under her chin. She sleeps a lot of the time (especially in this heat) but every now and then she has a mental 30 minutes where she drives us nuts. She has gone from...

  5. Cockapoo Sizes

    Cockapoo Talk
    I am having a hard time deciding which size crate to get. The owner of the breeders says that cockapoo's get as big as 20 pounds. But I also heard that they can get even bigger. I want to get a 24 times 18 crate, but now I'm not so sure. There's also a 30 times 24 crate which is a bit bigger and...

    Introductions
    Hello! I'm trying to get everything ready before my Cockapoo Puppy arrives sept. 10th! I've read that Crate Training is the way to go! However, due to how far away my home is to work it would be impossible to let him out of his crate every 2-3 hours, especially as a puppy. Therefore, I'm...
  7. Puppy won't sleep at night!!

    Cockapoo Training and Bonding
    Our Cockapoo puppy is 22 weeks old and seems to be doing well in all areas, apart from sleeping at night! To begin with we crate trained her, which she never took to, regardless of how many games we played with her in it, feeding in it, toys put in there etc, however we persevered and she would...

  9. Barking!

    Cockapoo Training and Bonding
    Each time Jessie is alone in a room she barks constantly. Whenever she is put in her crate and nobody is there she howls. We need to be able to leave her for about 45minutes but can't right now due to this. Any advice or things we could distract her with while we are out? Thanks in advance!
  10. Any suggestions??

    The Puppy Place
    Hey all!!! I'm trying to figure out what times would be best to take out my pup before bedtime. I've been going to bed early bc he has me up around 5:15 (good bc I can walk/feed/play and walk again before work). I've read many posts about taking him out right before bed and 3 times he's pooped...

    The Puppy Place
    Hi, we get Wilf when he is 11 weeks old and I want to crate train him, however, to give my two cats some restbite I'd like him to sleep in our room in a crate. However, the crate is really heavy and we have narrow stairs and I want him to get used to going in it for short periods in the day...
  12. What's the right thing to do at night when crate training a 9 week old puppy?

    The Puppy Place
    The new love of my life is keeping me awake being really distressed, howling and wining (which to be honest is to be expected and something I was prepared for) I picked him up from a family breeder 3 days ago and have been trying to keep him in a crate and letting him out to excrete about every...
  13. Help: separation anxiety

    The Puppy Place
    Hi I'm new on here and I was wondering if someone could help me? I have a 15 week old Cockapoo called Daisy, she is a lovely little puppy but she does have a few issues. The main one is separation anxiety. She will bark and cry if she is left for literally minutes, it's so bad I can't even go...
  14. Night 6

    The Puppy Place
    :D Lola did her last pee at about 2130. She got in to her crate herself and we locked the door when we went to bed at 2230. Not a peep out of her ALL night. I got up at 6am, all was clean and dry, then outside for a productive toileting session. So pleased with her. I can't believe she held...
