Walks are a great form of exercise for both you and your pup. However, a simple 15 minute walk likely won’t tire your Cockapoo out. You’ll need to go for an extra long walk. This will allow your Cockapoo to get out their excess energy as well as their curiosity while they sniff and inspect everything on their path.

Play games

When a long walk doesn’t do the trick, sometimes you have to tire out your Cockapoo’s mind as well as their body. Playing various games will do just that. Here are a few ideas:

  • Hide food or toys: Take your Cockapoo’s favorite toy or treats and hide them somewhere in the house. Then, let your pup search for them until they find it!
  • Teach them new tricks: Cockapoos are intelligent, so they’ll catch on to new tricks quickly.
  • Blow bubbles: Using a handheld bubble maker or an automatic one, have your pup try to catch the bubbles as they float around in the air.
  • Playdate: Cockapoos are extremely friendly, and they love meeting new people and dogs. Arrange a playdate with one of your friends’ dogs and have them play together!

Will a Cockapoo eventually calm down?

The above tricks will likely work, but you may still be asking yourself if your Cockapoo’s energy levels will drop off at some point. Cockapoos are most energetic when they’re young. While they will always have lots of energy, they will calm down by the time they get to adulthood.
