Default Curiosity: Cockapoo and Babies/children

So my lady and I are getting married in May of 2014 and eventually we are going to have children together. It will, without a doubt, be while Frankie is still around and without a doubt before he gets super old.

Has anyone else gone though that period? Did your dogs respond well to the addition to the family?

Again, this is just curiosity. I was telling the lady about Frankie playing with a little Pug puppy yesterday and we were just saying that we hope Frankie is good with our next dog and our eventual children.

Thanks for quenching my curiosity! And here is Frankie laying down on our kitchen floor after having a good run around with a neighbors dog.

I have no kids, but Lady is fantastic with kids...that being said she hasnt had a sibling to constantly rival for attention. however she is so gentle with them, very tolerant of them, and wants to play with them, she will even bring them her toys..it is really cute to watch

That is an awesome picture.
I have to admit that Jake has a hard time around children. (he has never been around a baby) It takes a while for him to warm up to them and trust them. That said, he was not well socialized before i got him and i did not have much opportunity to expose him to children.
Willow on the other hand, was raised in a house with several home schooled children and is wonderful with kids.
I think he would be just fine. It is all in how you introduce him and give him time to adjust. Make sure he knows his place with a baby but also that he still feels well loved and spoiled. I can tell how much you adore him so I am sure it would not be an issue.

There is a little black Cockapoo on the end of a huge red tongue!! Haha Gorgeous.
Well I don't know if my experience will be the same, as we had billy (the kid) first, he was 3 1/2 when we got our first poo Ralph, so Ralph did cut his teeth on billy!! (joking, we gave Ralph proper toys to chew and not just our son!!)
Ralph is amazing and allows billy to hug him, squeeze him, push him, pull him, & on unfortunate occasions kick him!!!!
He just accepts it.
Ruby is not as tolerant as Ralph, one day billy picked up ruby when she was a small puppy and said "oh look a lovely cushion" ruby let out a bit of a disapproval growl... Billy dropped her straight away and said "ooo it's a speaking cushion" - which I found funny!!
Anyway I should imagine frankie would be a fab "big brother" to any addition to your family,
But you don't need me to tell you to never leave a baby, child on its own with a dog.
If I do need to go upstairs to shower, I crate my dogs and billy is under strict instructions to not go near them.
Billy plays with the dogs endlessly in the garden and talks to them which is very cute.
I have only ever heard of good temperaments with cockapoos, they seem happy sociable, accepting of social situations, people, dogs, children etc.

Congratulations on your pending nuptials !!!! X

We are in the middle of getting our dogs ready for kids to live with us. Amiee Jane (our cockapoo) is a natural with kids (maybe cause they are her size). Your poo should be okay with it.

Mine love children. They get quite excited around them as they know they are liable to scream and chase them.

I would think it will be fine (just curious...yeah right!), Frankie will be so much calmer then anyway, I have met a heavily pregnant lady dogwalking, she said her dog (not a cockapoo though) has started laying with her head on the baby bump when she was never a lap dog before,so its like she already knows there is a new family member that needs looking after, so sweet.

In our household it's my husband, myself, our elderly dog and Max our 1year old Cockapoo, last July my son and his family spent a week with us. Our granddaughter spent a lot of the holiday playing with Max. She would pick him up and shut him in the bedroom (I peeked through the window) they were both on the bed snuggled together. We had the rest of the family over so 6months, 4 yrs, 5 yrs and 8. Both dogs were sat on, crawled over, cuddled, stroked, brushed etc and neither one so much as growled. I was so proud of them both. So I believe you will be fine. All the very best for the future!
