My cockapoo does not shed at all, and I mean at all. I can literally pull his hair from his body and nothing will fall out. From my understanding, this breed does not shed. Did you get any papers saying that your dog is a Cockapoo? And, do you have pictures?

what generation is your cockapoo. from what i know in a f2 2nd generation litter cockapoo x cockapoo. you will get atleast one puppsy that can not be sold as the clasic coxkapoo.

the cockapoo is not 100% non shedding eemembee you are crossing a shedding breed with a non shedding breed.

i find little hairs from my girls bit not the same you would find from other brees.
would love to see photos.

have you contacted the breeder about your conserns. did you see older pups from the breeder.

Dexter sheds a bit. Not a lot but he does leave some hairs on my black shirts. He is 1st generation. One parent cocker and one poodle. He is NOT non-shed.

I would check into this if I were you...Bailey is 2nd generation and does not shed at all. Even when I brush him (daily) very little hairs are on the brush. You should contact your breeder and find out more about the parents of your puppy. Good Luck!!

His mom is a cocker spaniel and his dad is standard poodle.
And the breeder said he's F2!

a standertd poodle shouldnt have been mated with a cocker the sice difference is to big and could have caused problems.

F2 is when its a cockapoo crossed with a cockapoo so that is rwong too. it may be this breeder has lied to you. had they bred before, how did you hear about the litter.

I looked at your profile picture and he does look different. Go to my profile and see the picture of Bailey. Sounds to me like some one isn't telling you the truth about your puppy.

it would be good to see a larger photo. i will have to hunt about the forum but i remember seeing a cockapoo that was very like a cocker. then you have shylo the black and whit cpckapoo who has the body of the poodle but poker srait hair so she gets mestaken for a chines crested.

remember thath the cockapoo is a cross breed so their is no true breed standered. its a bit of pot like. their is another cockapoo here that looks like a cavalear but the owner new the breeder and knew that this had happened in a litter before.

You know what? Not all cockapoos look the same. In fact, that is why the cockapoo isn't considered an actual breed because the puppies don't always look the same. Your sweet puppy is adorable. His face looks a little poodle but his coloring and coat looks like a cocker. Dexter looks like a typical cockapoo but we have friends with a puppy from the same parents that looks a lot different. You just never know. You could have DNA testing to see which breeds he has in him but honestly, it doesn't really matter. You will still love him either way, right?

Well but I just want to find out why he shed alot!!! I don't mind that he's not cockapoo!! But I just want to know how to stop his shedding at least not shed too much like a golden!!! I ask so many people they said I have to shave all his coat in order to let him grow his adult coat so his not going to shed alot,but is that true?? Cuz he still had his puppy coat on him!!! So just wonder how can I made him shed less than now?? Cuz he shed like a golden!!!

Hmm, Dexter used to shed some as a puppy but not too much. I just kept brushing him and then around 7 months got him groomed. He doesn't shed at all now, so maybe getting him groomed is a good idea. Not sure, though.

If you buy a crossbreed you need to accept that you can get traits from either breed - including the shdding hair of the cocker spaniel.

Most cockerpoos don't shed but this won't be true for all.

With labradoodles the difference is more stark - you can get anything from a slightly wispy labrador coat to a curly poodley fleece.

Your pup is gorgeous, just because he doesn't look like other cockerpoos doesn't mean he isn't one - the variety is the joy of the doodle IMO.

But - F2 would mean both parents were cockerpoos. So you haven't quite been told the right info. If mum was a cocker spaniel and dad a standard poodle, then firstly is a miracle the mum managed to have the pups with a sire that big, and secondly that would mean first generation (F1) puppies.

He certainly looks different to most of the cockapoos I have seen, I keep looking at my cockapoo and wondering if he is going to take after the spaniel or poodle but every month he just looks like both parents he seem to have a good mix of both of them I have pictures and the papers of both parents and interacted with my puppy's mum for a while whilst choosing my puppy so I got to see how they were raised and what living environment they lived in, all in all i am pleased with my puppy he really is a good boy, very affectionate, clever, quick to learn, loves the training we give him, he doesn't shed when we comb him there is very little hair on the comb, we have been giving him a conditioning tablet every day which has helped his lovely shiny coat, he has adapted to different dog foods all in all he is a wonderful little dog he is now 24 weeks old and is still teething he is 11.6 kg in weight (he isn't overweight we have him checked by vet) we love him to bits (can u tell) the picture of the puppy above doesn't look like a cockapoo but you can tell he has a poodle mix there somewhere but that is what you get when mixing breeds and that is why there isn't a standard yet! the puppy looks cute though!

Toffee:
Your Cockapoo doesn't look like most cockapoos but I've seen one here in Sweden who looks almost exactly like yours, they say she's first generation, I don't know about the shedding but she has the most beautiful eyes. I will try to post her picture.

My cockapoo doesn't shed at all. If his hair gets too long it will come out when it's tangled but that isn't truly shedding. When it's short he never sheds.
