Best Shampoo for Cockapoo


This joyful little pup is the result of a cross between a Poodle and a Cocker Spaniel. These pups have a coat that comes in a wide variety of types. It can be either straight, wavy, or curly, depending on which parent the pup takes after more. Their coat is also prone to becoming kinky.

They come in a large array of colors and are generally low-shedding and low-dander. Due to its low-shedding nature, this pup is a great option for people with allergies. To keep their coat looking luscious and shiny, it is important to pick the right shampoo for your Cockapoo. Here is a list of our top 10 picks.

Things to consider before choosing a shampoo for Cockapoo

No artificial ingredients

It is always a good idea to pick a shampoo for your Cockapoo that is made up of all-natural ingredients. These are things that a pup may come in contact with naturally, so you generally don’t have to worry about adverse effects. Make sure that the shampoo you are getting does not have too much artificial fragrance or dyes since these may irritate your Cockapoo’s skin, especially if your pup has more sensitive skin than the average dog. Find shampoos that are colored and perfumed naturally. Strong smells may not be very welcoming to a dog. 

Gentle ingredients

You should always pick a shampoo that is not full of harsh chemicals likes parabens and silicones. Dogs are generally prone to dry skin, and these components may exacerbate their dry skin condition, causing irritation. If a pup scratches at dry and flaky skin, it may break open, leaving the Cockapoo vulnerable to a skin infection. If your Cockapoo has very sensitive skin, pick shampoos with ingredients like oatmeal that are soothing and gentle. 

pH balanced

When it comes to the pH levels of skin, humans, and dogs are rather different. While humans have a relatively acidic pH level of around 4 to 5, dogs have a neutral or relatively alkaline pH level of around 7. For this reason, you should never use human shampoo or low-quality dog shampoos that do not have balanced pH levels on your Cockapoo. You should pick a dog shampoo that neutralizes when used on a pup so that no adverse reactions occur.  


It’s great to find a product that suits your beloved Cockapoo, but not at the price of another animal’s life. Always pick products for your pup (and in general) that are not tested on animals and are 100% cruelty-free. All animals deserve to live a life as happy as your own little Cockapoo. 


How often should I bathe my Cockapoo?

Cockapoos really do not need to be bathed unless when it is necessary. Reserve bath time for after very messy play sessions or when your pup gets into a muddly little accident. Otherwise, frequent bathing can dry out and irritate your Cockapoo’s skin. The dry skin may begin to flake, which may lead to your dog scratching at the itch, breaking the skin, and exposing it to infections. These are odorless dogs, so you won’t have to worry about them stinking up your home. Do not bathe them more than once a month, and use only quality products when doing so.

What supplements should I give my Cockapoo for a healthy coat?

Your main focus, when it comes to your Cockapoo, should be a well-balanced, all-natural diet. If your Cockapoo is getting the nutrition they need through the food they eat, there will be no need for supplements. Take care not to give your pup any medication unless it has been prescribed by the vet to treat an underlying condition. Make sure your dog’s food is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in ample amounts in animal fat and fish, foods that form a natural part of a dog’s diet. 

Should I use conditioner on my Cockapoo?

Yes! Conditioners are a great way to protect your Cockapoo’s coat from sun damage as well as from everyday contact friction. The conditioner will also keep your pup’s coat generally free of tangles and matted fur, making it so much easier to groom. It will also ensure your Cockapoo does not end up with unsightly slit-ends.
