I decided to continue breeding multi generational Cockapoos as I love what I am getting.
We are having so much fun developing our own unique bloodline and that "Teddy Bear" look for the Cockapoo.
We breed F1, F2 and F3 Cockapoos . We are hoping to develop a consistent coat and type of dog.
The "F" stands for the generation of the dog. A first generation Cockapoo (F1) is the result of breeding a Cocker Spaniel to a Poodle. A second generation Cockapoo (F2) comes from breeding an F1 Cockapoo to another generation of Cockapoo (if an F3 Cockapoo is bred to an F1 Cockapoo, then their offspring are still F2). To get an F3 Cockapoo, parents must both be F2 or higher.
Second generation has the highest chance for"the grandfather effect". This is where the puppy will have more of a Poodle or Cocker look instead of the wonderful mixture.
Sometimes we do F1b, F2b or F3b cockapoos if we want a certain body type or coat type.
Examples are shown below (more to be added)
