Hi all,

Just wondering about the differing cockapoo coat types. Pareto's coat is much straighter than his siblings, but he looks so cute we couldn't resist him. Just trying to get an idea of what he'll look like as he gets older.... has anyone got an older cockapoo who had a straighter coat?

Will it get wavier as it gets longer.... that's what happens with my hair, hence having a crop :-D

Cheers all,

Kx

Hi Kerry - Lolly had a much straighter coat than many cockapoos. She was often described as more cocker than poo! But she has waved up beautifully. See here for some now and then pictures.

The only thing I will say is that Lolly does shed a tiny bit. I mostly only find hair when brush her with a slicker brush. From what I've read here this slight shedding seems to appear more in the straighter coated poos. But even then it's hardly any hair compared to most other breeds of dogs I've known.

We're thinking the same thing! when we got Vincent (only 2 weeks ago!) he had only slightly wavey fur, mainly straight, but now he's suddenly become really curley!! Exciting to see what's going to happen next :p

no twho of my girls have the same coat.

Gypsy and Inca are very poodle but are very different. but they bothe have think poodle ears the bush out where as Echo has vey thin ears, Deltas are still growing in so i dont know how thick her ears will be.

Gypsy is very fin and whispy mats very easily but her topnot has a center parting, and wont stand up like the poodle topnot.

Inca is alot thiker and her is a stronger poodle coat.and i can give her a propper poodle topnot if it want.

Echo is much more spanial but with a waveyness to hear coar that is changing to a courl on her legs, but her eaqrs and topnot are still strate.

Delta is odd, she habs a very poodley topnot but they rest of they is more cocker. her legs are still changing, she is loosing the strate coat she had and geting more of a curl.

they defonetly get more curly as they get older.

Thanks all. Very helpful, as always :)

Lolly and Vincent are very similar to Pareto, and it was lovely seeing pics of Lolly as she's getting older. Such a cutie!

Dexter has not a sign of curl. I would describe him as a fluffy, soft, shag-pile carpet which never moults.
Ditto Millie. Hmm, a shag-pile carpet, not thought of that before :D

Millie has ever such a slight wave on her bum, where the black patch it, quite different from the rest of her lovely fluffy, wavy coat she has. :D

Pareto is an F1, with a black & white roan englsh show cocker mum and a chocolate miniature poodle dad. His two brothers and three sisters are all black with white bibs, but much wavier than Pareto.

Mind you, he's the largest in the litter, 2.2kg already! So maybe his curls have just been stretched :)

At 8 weeks (and 1 day) Vincent was 2.5kg :eek: and he was the runt of the litter!

I hear this is the "grandad effect." some f1s moult quite a bit too. my puppy is f1 and does moult. his equafleece gives loads of evidence ;)

Thanks so much for your photo bucket as this is how Cara's coat appears to be turning out. I'm off to the poo parlor with her on Sat and will borrow a couple of your pictures to show how I want her done. Xx
