Truth be told, I get more emails and calls regarding the grooming of Cockapoos than that for the request of Cockapoo puppies…
I try to answer everyone’s email with as much helpful advise as I can but the real problem is that most of these owners are fed up with their grooming service and the hairstyles that they keep having to settle on for their lovely Cockapoos.
I, have thankfully never had to deal with such troubles and have long since decided that the Cockapoo needs to have their own designated looks.
For crying out loud they have been around since the 1950’s if not earlier, its about time the Cockapoo gets it’s respect within the dog world and at the least get it’s own signature look!!!!
I have set and designed several styles to not only make the Cockapoo look good as a breed, but that are also very functional and practical.
The lovely Miss Chloe and the ever adorable Miss Maggie were recently groomed and I thought since their owners were so happy and pleased with the way they were groomed, that it might be helpful to not only share their grooming pictures but to post the information regarding where and who groomed them. My hope with Town and Country has always been to offer up useful information as it pertains to the Cockapoo, and since so many of you have asked about good groomers in or around your area, I have compiled this list of useful resources for grooming.
As I know many of you are eager to have your Cockapoos look just as fashionable.
Please note that I “Town & Country Cockapoos” have only personally used a few of the following groomers. As for the most part I Groom and maintain my own dogs. Therefore do not contact me if you are somehow less than satisfied.

Here are a few pictures of my Cockapoos with the Town & Country “Chic” and “Sport” look. I sometimes tend to take more off or leave more on, around the body or the legs, depending on the season or my preference at the time. I have been working on a detailed feature regarding all of the Town and Country looks and I hope to have it posted here on the Cockapoo blog and on the Cockapoo grooming page on the main site by this summer.
Let me know if you would like for me to recommend any of your favorite Groomers!
