Where to start
To be considered for one of our puppies we like to know a bit about you first, we prefer to do this over the phone or via email.
The info we require includes – Location, work commitments, previous dog experience, average amount of time a dog would be left alone, whether you live in a house or a flat and what outside space would be available to a dog.
A puppy cannot be reserved until this has been done and you have been approved. This is also an opportunity to ask us any questions specific to Cockapoos or us as breeders.
Once approved, our puppies are available for reservation on a first come first served basis.
A puppy can only be considered reserved once a deposit of £200 has been paid.
This deposit is completely refundable if on visiting we or the puppies do not meet your expectations or you do not feel there is a puppy you connect with.
The position in which you pay your deposit dictates the position in which you will be invited to come and choose your puppy in the litter you are interested in.
We encourage selection at around 6 weeks of age to give you a real feel for the puppies character and temperament.
If you are not able to visit before the collection date, we are happy to guide you in your choice.
Once you have paid a deposit and reserved a puppy, we send litter updates and photos at 3 weeks and at 6 weeks. At these intervals the puppies progress is most noticeable
We do not invite anyone to come and view or handle the pups until they are 6 weeks old and covered by their first vaccination. This is for the safety of the puppies as disease can easily be brought in to the home.
At 6 weeks you are welcome to come and visit. This is an opportunity to meet us, our mums and dads and most importantly, choose your puppy! We appreciate that if you are already having to travel a long way to collect your puppy this may not always be possible and so we are happy to guide and advise you on the puppies temperament and character.
Puppies are ready for collection between the age of 8 and 12 weeks.
Care must always be taken when buying a puppy. Being involved in dogs for a lifetime, we know how it feels to be considering the commitment of taking on a dog. We too have spent countless hours researching breeds, breeders, forums and answering the questions that such a big decision provokes you to ask. We have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to breeders – so whether its your first dog, or your 31’st, we know what it takes to make buying and collecting your puppy an enjoyable and genuine experience.
