Since they are half Poodle which is an intelligent breed, they need plenty of mental and physical stimulation.

Are Cockapoos good with children?

Yes, Cockapoos are one of the best family dogs to have with small children; they love playing all day long and love to be active. They are soft and gentle and never snap out. Unlike the Yorkshire terrier, this breed can’t handle kids. If you are an elderly couple, you may want to think twice about getting a Cockapoo. But if you’re an up and coming young family, Cockapoos would fit very nicely in your family.

How much exercise should I give my Cockerpoo?

Exercise will help calm your Cockapoo, and the amount best would be two thirty-minute walks a day or once at an hour. However, they can pretty much walk forever so, depending on if you have the time, long walks can be beneficial to them, especially the younger ones.
