A simple question. What's your favorite color of cockapoos? Mine would have to be chocolate. (Notice the color of the website. :p ) I might be a bit biased, but I still think chocolate is the best looking color for cockapoos. What do you think?

I see what you mean. Even though Benny's a lighter color than Inca, it's still hard to make out his eyes in some pictures.

Thank you so much for this helpful information. I contacted a breeder today who said that "chocolate" cockapoos turn really gray as they age. Is this true?

Many of them do yes. It is all to do with poodle genetics and lots of poodle colours change as the dogs mature so lots of chocolate pups fade to a much lighter colour.

Sable is another interesting colour - the tips of the hair are darker but what that tends to mean with a poodle cross who will get clipped is all of that darker colour gets cut off.

I think go for a good breeder who health tests and raises the pups well and colour is the least relevant thing

Thank you so much for this invaluable information. The breeder I have been considering said that she never heard of such a thing and that the Internet is wrong. However when I did my research, I found the same information you have indicated in terms of how poodles genetics can throw color so now I know that it is true. I really love the Sable color too!
