Are Cockapoos hypoallergenic? (Quick answer)

Most people consider the Cockapoo hypoallergenic. This is one reason he is such a popular mixed breed.

Cockapoos shed less than the Cocker Spaniel parent and trigger fewer allergies. But they are not hypoallergenic. Studies suggest that allergens deposited as saliva on the coat trigger most allergies. 

Not cast-off hair; thus, no dog is 100% hypoallergenic. As the dog licks and self-grooms, he deposits protein flakes in the coat as saliva. 

Before buying a Cockapoo, please spend some time with him to gauge your allergic response. There is no guarantee that the dog will not trigger allergic reactions.

Cockapoos have a higher-than-average life expectancy. However, this depends on several factors, such as the size of the dog, its health, and how its owner cares for it. You can read more about Cockapoo life expectancy to understand what to expect after bringing this cute pup home.
