Hello everyone,

I've had a look at this site and think it's great, so I decided to join. I don't have a cockapoo yet but I have been doing quite a lot of research and am 99.9% sure that they're the dog for me. I still have one or two questions, but have to go out now. When I return I will search the threads for any answers and if necessary post them on here later. Bye for now, and as my mum used to insist I say, ''Thank you for having me''.:)

Hi Ann..... you could come and get a feel for the breed in all its glory at Leeds next week if you can make it... cockapoo not required, but would give a great insight x

Thank you, I would love to Karen, but I'm going up to my son's in Edinburgh next weekend for a few days- have some events at the Festival booked. I would be interested in other 'cockapoo doos' :)

Thank you for your welcome Kendal,

I'm thinking of a chocolate male. Parents miniature poodle and an English show cocker (here's where I have questions). Apparently, the working cocker is a bit more hyper????? However, since making this decision I have read that 'cocker rage' is rampant and it occurs mainly in single colour English cocker show dogs. Can anyone enlighten/advise me here please? Thank you.

Hello Karen,

Love your welcome, Karen! Biscuit looks gorgeous - and what a fantastic name. His colour looks to be the same as that of one of my favourite biscuits - a Hobnob - now there's a name should he have babies! Or perhaps Huntley, Palmer, Fox, Jacob, Tunnock. I think they're great names. . . . sorry.......it's rather late and I'm getting carried away with myself! I think I should take myself off to bed. Bye for now. :)

Hi Ann :welcome:
there's been lots of info on here about which type of cocker - do a search on the breeding forum, should come up for you. It seems to be a personal choice - don't pay too much attention to stereotypes of working/show cockers. I believe rage syndrome is rare, others here are way more knowledgeable - I'm just a very happy mummy to a wonderful working cocker/miniature poodle 11 week old puppy (and her half-cockapoo big sister) :D
Happy searching - lots of puppies on here for you to get plenty of information and see how different types develop :)

My friends son is in a show at the Fringe, called Blackwood. Worth a look if you can. 4 A Level students wrote, produced and perform their work - definitely worth a grade A.

Thanks for that MillieDog. Will see what I can do. My son is lucky enough to be a student up there and is working for the Festival this summer. He's been up there three years now and loves Edinburgh and the Festival - me too. I'm sure your friend's son and his mates will have a great time.
