When you get your first dog, you don’t really think about the type of dog personalities that they have. You just love them for who they are.

But as time goes on, you start to see that there are certain things about your dog that makes them unique.

Do they have a particular set of quirks or habits? Do you wonder where they get them from? And that’s when you discover the types of personalities dogs have.

It’s not something we can see on the outside, but it’s something we can see on the inside. And if you own a Cockapoo, then it will be even more apparent. With these tips, you’ll know what kind of personality your dog has in no time!

Assertive

If your dog is assertive, that means they’re outgoing and confident. Assertive dogs are great at making friends, but they might be a little too forward sometimes.

They love to be around people and dogs, but they may just go up and say “hi” without waiting for an invitation!

Assertive dogs are always the ones looking to get attention or affection, but they are also the first ones to offer it to others too.

If you’re unsure if your Cockapoo is assertive, look out for how they interact with other dogs and people. Do they run up to others or wait for them to notice them? Do they bark a lot or keep themselves to themselves as they move around?

Assertive dogs are the ones who don’t care if you notice them or not. They want you to see them, and they want you to see how awesome they are!

Independent

If your dog is an independent one, that means they like to do their own thing and doesn’t need anyone’s help.

Independent dogs are great at doing things on their own, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want to try new things.

Independent dogs are usually the first ones to say “let me do it myself!” when you offer to help out.

If you see your Cockapoo being independent, you’ll see they do things their own way.

Can they open doors with ease? Do they know how to use a doggy door even if they’ve never used it before? Do they eat their food from their bowl or from the ground? Independent dogs find their own ways to do things they’ve never done before and they do it their way.

Shy

If your dog is shy, that means they’re quiet and prefer to keep to themselves a lot.

Shy dogs often don’t like being in the middle of things, and they prefer to sit at the edge of the room or in a corner.

Shy dogs are usually the first ones to hide when there are new dogs or people around them. They don’t like being in the spotlight, and they don’t like being around people they don’t know.

If you’re unsure if your Cockapoo is shy, look out for how they move around and how they interact with others.

Do they move to the side and shrink down or do they walk up to others and try to say hello? Do they hide or do they stay close to you whenever there are new people around?

Most shy dogs are quiet and don’t bark much, but they do like to keep close to their owners. And if they do bark, it’s because they feel threatened in some way.

Dominant

If your dog is dominant, that means they’re bossy and have a strong personality. Dominant dogs usually make their owners do things for them, and they definitely like to be in charge.

If you have a dominant dog, they might be the type to make you feed them by sitting on your lap or they might be the type to decide when it’s time to go out. Dominant dogs like to be in control, and they have no problem showing it either!

If you’re unsure if your Cockapoo is a dominant dog, look out for how they interact with you and other dogs. Do they try to get your attention or affection by barking or pulling at you or do they sit back and wait for you to notice them? Do they bark a lot? When they move around, do they push through other dogs or do they wait for them to move out of their way? A dominant dog is the one who always wants to be on top.

Fearful

If your dog is fearful, that means they’re shy and nervous around people and dogs.

Fearful dogs don’t like change, and they don’t like being put in the middle of things either. They usually like to sit at the back of the room or behind their owners when there are new people around.

Fearful dogs often don’t bark much either because they don’t want to draw attention to themselves.

If you’re unsure if your Cockapoo is a fearful dog, look out for how they move around and how they interact with others. Do they move to the side and shrink down or do they walk up to others and try to say hello? Do they hide or do they stay close to you whenever there are new people around? Most fearful dogs are quiet and don’t bark much, but they do like to keep close to their owners. And if they do bark, it’s because they feel threatened in some way.

Conclusion

Cockapoos are special dogs that have their own distinct personalities. If you have a Cockapoo, then you know how they can be cute one moment and be trouble the next! Spend some time getting to know your Cockapoo’s personality, they are our little furry best friends after all!
