First thing's first: Food!

Whether you've got a picky eater or a food driven fur ball, it's so important to find a food that is tailored to your dog's characteristics. Our DOGFOOD offers a grain free, hypoallergenic diet to keep many allergies at bay. Since your Cockapoo most likely has long curly locks, it is important to keep their skin and coat nourished by feeding a diet rich in oils and Omega 3. We recommend our own salmon flavour grain free kibble to keep that coat looking nice and shiny and to help maintain their dental health.

For a diet that's jam packed full of moisture to aid coat condition and digestion, you may also consider feeding our Raw food. Simply thaw and serve! Available in a range of flavours, pop into store to shop today. Check out our blog for more info on the benefits of raw feeding.

Home Grooming

As you will know, your Cockapoo’s coat requires regular attention due to those cute curls! We recommend brushing regularly using a slicker brush and comb to tease out those pesky tangles which are otherwise unavoidable! Not only will this make your dog feel much more comfortable but will also encourage bonding between you and your pooch! Our top pick is this Ergo universal slicker brush in medium. For best results, follow through with a comb for easy tangle teasing or for particularly stubborn patches, we recommend a Matt Master grooming rake. Ensure you read the product info for top tips and helpful 'how to' videos.

Whilst home grooming is an essential part of your Cockapoo's routine, every so often they will need a full pamper session to keep their curly locks looking and feeling fresh. for any doodle breed, we would recommend doing this every 6-8 weeks. This will minimise any dirt build up and matting which will make the home grooming experience more pleasant for you and your pooch. We would be more than happy to accommodate you and your dog in our Bradford-on-Avon or Clifton salon. Click here to browse more info on grooming and to get in touch with our team.


You don't need us to tell you that your Cockapoo is incredibly smart! We recommend regularly challenging your pooch using games to keep them engaged and get them working for those well deserved treats. A great option is our Nina Ottosson treat activities, available in a range of skill levels to keep your dog's mind active and to teach them valuable skills of independence. For the new pup in your life, we would recommend Dog Smart entry level game. 

Since you are undeniably your dog's favourite person, it goes without saying that they love a bit of playtime with you. we recommend toys you can get involved with to help train and enrich your pup's relationship with you. TUG-E-NUFF's Powerball Bungee toy is a durable, interactive toy that can be thrown, fetched and tugged! Shop the full TUG-E-NUFF range here
