The level of quietness is not the same for all Cockapoos, some Cockapoos love hearing the sound of their voices more than the others. They enjoy announcing their presence in doggie parks and announcing when there’s someone at the door, which at times, the barking and yappy behaviors can be annoying.
On the one hand, there are also Cockatoos that have a quieter nature.
What’s It Like To Own A Cockapoo?
You will enjoy owning a Cockapoo because they have extremely friendly and affectionate temperament, making Cockapoos good house dogs. A fur baby that wouldn’t mind being picked up and spent the entire day curled up by your side.
In fact, a Cockapoo is so affectionate that it will even allow a nice pat or a belly rub from passers-by.
However, if there’s one problem with a Cockapoos’ temperament, that is their need for constant companionship. They get upset when they are left alone and as a result, they can get ‘aggressive’.
They show this form of aggression through different ways like furniture-chewing, scratching windows and doors, and even urinating and defecating in the wrong spots.
The same as the parents, the Cockapoo is an intelligent hybrid dog. A Cockapoo responds well to the use of positive reinforcements like treats and verbal praise. As mentioned, Cockapoos can’t be left alone but they can be calmed down through training.
Moreover, you wouldn’t have a difficult time potty training an intelligent Cockapoo. For as long as you are consistent with a good and positive potty training program, you’d be able to teach your Cockapoo in two weeks’ time.
