Cockapoo Question

My family is considering either a shihpoo or cockapoo puppy. What are the pros and cons of both?


3 of the 4 of us leave at around 8 am weekdays (2 back at 4ish, 1 back at 7ish). What is the comparison of both breeds? Hyperactivity level? Regular maintenance (grooming, training, etc.)? Training ability? Anything else important about both?

Puppies in general are a TON of work. A puppy can not be alone for that long. It is not feasible for your puppy and not fair either. An adult dog is most likely what you are looking for, as they are better apt to stay home alone for so long. Both breeds need an average of 1 - 2 hours of exercise a day. They need daily grooming and monthly groomer visits. Training is average for both breeds, they need positive reinforcement training and consistency.
