Don’t worry, people seem to get very judgemental about poodle mixes but the fact is Cockapoos and Cavapoos are popular because they are a manageable size, don’t shed and are easy to train, making them ideal for first-time dog owners. They are also generally pretty healthy as they are just fancy mutts!
I know loads of both and they are pretty similar. Cockapoos are maybe slightly more energetic/playful and cavapoos more like lap dogs but they are both generally lovely and make great family pets.
The main downside is that they are relatively expensive and I am sure that there are some breeders who exploit that so do your homework and make sure they are bred responsibly.
