A lovable breed with a fun-loving personality and plenty of energy

The Cockapoo is a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. As it can be bred from a wide variety of parents, its appearance and size can vary greatly, as can its character traits. Generally, Cockapoos are extremely friendly, easily trained, energetic dogs whose curly coats, low-shedding coats are particularly good for allergy sufferers.

Cockapoo insurance considerations

Choosing the right insurance for your Cockapoo can help keep them happy and healthy whatever happens. It’s important that when choosing dog insurance, you consider the length of time policies cover different conditions, as some can become lifelong. Petplan’s Covered For Life ® plans refresh the veterinary fees each year allowing you to claim for ongoing conditions for the rest of your pet’s life providing there is no break in cover, with no hidden limits for specific conditions or diagnostic tools like MRI scans.
