The Importance of Temperament When Picking the Perfect Puppy

Temperament testing is an important part of raising puppies

Determining the right temperament of your new puppy requires you to consider several important questions. For instance, what level of energy best suits your household? How old are your children? Do you live in an apartment or a house? Do you want a cuddler or a running partner? Additionally, you need to know if you have any other pets in the household. Our expert "Matchmaker" can help you through the selection process to match you with the perfect puppy that fits your unique needs and preferences.

Determining a dog's true temperament is impossible until he has settled into your home, lifestyle, routine, and energy level. However, we try our best to understand the early signs of behavior to guide you towards the right puppy. We use portions of the Volhard PAT (puppy aptitude test) to make these determinations. This test helps to conclude on shyness, confidence, comfort, and attention.

Cockapoos are generally considered to have a well-balanced temperament. This is because they inherit the best traits of their parent breeds. Cocker Spaniels are known for being playful, affectionate, and generally quiet. Poodles, on the other hand, are one of the smartest breeds of dogs with an even level of energy and a strong desire to please their owners.

When these two breeds are combined, they create a happy and well-behaved dog that is perfect for going on walks or cuddling up with for a movie night. In short, there is nothing better than a Cockapoo!
