As you would expect, the Cockapoo is actually a cross-breed or as some would express it, a hybrid dog breed. And as the name suggests, it is a mix of Poodle and Cocker Spaniel. So its coat type and personality would depend largely on which breed is the more dominant. Cockapoo grooming doesn’t have to be difficult but some knowledge of the actual coat type will prove to be very beneficial.
The Cockapoo Handbook
But regardless of the coat type, an essential part of any Cockapoo care is having a good grooming routine.
The actual clipping can of course be done by a professional groomer. But if you decide to learn the basics of how to groom a Cockapoo yourself so that you can manage the clipping at home, then you will need some pointers on how to go about it.
Some helpful guidelines are probably even more relevant if you have had to self-isolate during the 2020 pandemic. Plus, it will definitely pay to have some knowledge of preferred Cockapoo grooming tools.
With patience and some practice you can eventually feel completely comfortable with managing the Cockapoo coat type.
