my 4 and a half month old cockapoo (Masey)
her hair looks mostly cocker and i was wondering because i have always known cockapoos to have poodle hair (no shedding) but i was wondering if they start off like that then they get more poodle like hair or can you get them with cocker spaniel hair aswell (this is my first dog btw) I dont really mind about the sheding but can anybody tell me any useful tips to stop her shedding as much

Hello and welcome to the forum. :)

As a cross breed a Cockapoo can take after either parent. Normally with a first cross (miniature poodle x Cocker) the coat is low to non moulting however I have seen first crosses that look just like a Cocker Spaniel and do moult. Even if the coat is low/non shedding it can vary greatly between being very curly or loose and wavey. That is what we love about them...the great variety. :)

What were the parents of Masey? Cockapoos or poodle x Cocker?

There is nothing that you can do to reduce the moulting however regular brushing will keep it tidy and capture most of it in the brush.

I would love to see a picture if you have one :) We do like puppy pictures on here :D

For more info on Cockapoo coats have a read here : About Cockapoos

Hope this helps.

Hello and :welcome: Sarah has explained it all but it is unfortunate that breeders often advertise cockapoos as non-shedding when it's not necessarily true!

My Milo is similar age to Masey and his coat isn't very long yet. He also did shed quite a bit when he was younger though it's greatly reduced now. He has also gotten waiver but nowhere near as thick as poodle at all. I have been told that with F1s, some just take longer to develop their coat.

Would love to see photos and know what generation Masey is. Cocker coat is more common in F2 litters.

Aww Masey is adorable! Her coat looks reasonably long though straight. Cocker coats aren't usually that long at this age though! You can't be sure what coat she will have till her adult coat comes in. Part of the fun of cockapoos!:)

Ahh Masey is cute .. and what a good girl with her training so far :)

She does look more cocker at the moment, but as said above things can change in coat texture and colour .. keep us all posted with lots of Masey updates please :) :)
