Hi I'm looking for a Cockapoo puppy and thought I had sorted out what I was looking for, a show cocker mum. One breeder I spoke to said they would't recommend a working cocker mum for us as we live in town and they tend to be livelier ( we do have available walks on footpaths on the door step).
Then I was researching some of the other larger breeders mentioned on the forum yesterday, and they use working mums. So I was wondering if anyone could explain the difference?:confused:

Have a search on here for Remy and Picnic ... these are puppies breed from Cocker Spaniels with a mix of both working and show in the background ...

Also have a look in teh My Dogs Life coat colour catalogue ...lots of mixes in there...

You are right some working cockers can be lively .. but not all ... some are used as working dogs and some aren't.. each dog is different ...

I good point to make ... when I was first searching for a cockapoo, I contacted many breeder, and the breeders that bred show mixes promote them and the breeders who promote working mixes promote them .. I think this why I researched .. as I wanted to find out more....

Make sure you see the cocker used in the mix .. for character, looks etc ... also please find a good breeder who ticks all my boxes .. which is the hardest part when I am on my own puppy search ...

Haha - sounds like the ideal dog :D:D:D - that's kind of what I wanted but Flo is still a 'work in progress' in one respect or another :D Can I add to the list for the perfect dog - stands very still when being groomed, never jumps up at visitors, always comes when called :eek::eek::eek:

I don't think most big breeders do breed working, I think it's much more of a mix tbh, obviously there's JD that breed working cockers, but Anzil's is big as well & they breed with show cockers, so either way it doesn't matter, go for which you'd like, it's your pup at the end of the day, all dogs can be different, good luck!

hi my wispa is half working cocker and loves a good run and mad time in the park does walk to heal (after loads of training) and is also a couch potatoe at home but it all takes time and training but it does pay off when they grow out of the cheeky puppy stage!! good luck with your search its loads of fun looking.

did you say you were looking to get a cockapoo ???

JoJo giggling here ...

I am sure a cockapoo can be trained .. mine are not so good at walking to heal .. or coming when called ... but yes they are the best dogs in the whole for loving you back ...

Cuddles .. all the time xxx

I think it is safe to say each dog is different .. some lively and some more chilled ... regardless of show or working background...

I like both show and working mixes .. as most of you know I can't see a massive difference in the overall look of the cockapoo bred from either ...

I do like the mix of show and working used ..... an english cocker spaniel is one breed at the moment .. so just get a puppy from the parents you like ... and a breeder you like too... a good breeder who puts caring for their dogs / puppies, health and character to the top of their list ...
