  1. Cockapoo Talk
    Hi all, I’m new to this forum and we are collecting our new puppy this weekend. He is an 8 week old black F1b cockapoo. I have the crate and a room divider/play pen sorted from a friend. Been recommended a vet bed crate mat. But a bit clueless about collars, leads, dog bowls and any other bits...

    Like many in lockdown we've recently brought Alfie, a cockapoo, to share our lives. We adore him...but he is oh so different from our last dog, a Golden Retriever. He's now nearly six months old, and we are currently coping with fussy eating syndrome, and have carefully followed lots of the...

    i'm getting my cockapoo pretty soon and I am really worried about what stuff is better for him. What food do you guys use? We are planning to use the food that the breeder will give us for the first few weeks, but we may want to transfer him to new food too. Also, does anyone have any training...

    Hello everyone! Me and my family cannot decide if we want insurance or not. We are thinking that it could be a good idea, but then again, we don't know which insurance company is better and not as expensive. Is insurance really worth it? And if it is, which insurance is better? What insurance do...

    Hello everyone! Me and my family are getting a cockapoo! It's going to be my first time getting a dog so I am really worried about everything. Would anyone recommend anything for a puppy Cockapoo? Like what shampoo is better or what to do to introduce him to the house? My family has 2 young...

    Hello! My name is Dawn and our family just brought home an 8 week old Cockapoo girl. She is about 4 pounds. I am wondering if anyone knows how big they typically get? The breeder told us 8-12 pounds, but the mom looked bigger than that. Not sure about the dad. Also, she is not very...

    Hi all, I've just been told that a new puppy who has only had his first vaccine is not allowed on the grass at home. We have an enclosed garden, which although out in the countryside, am fairly sure has not been visited by foxes. However we do have snails and slugs. I also need to treat...

    Hi all, Your posts have been invaluable in allaying some of my fears about owning a dog. I've been scared of dogs since I was a child and got bitten. However over the years the fear has faded to a wariness and an aversion to the work, mess and noise created by a dog. I've finally given in to...

    Hi I'd like to properly introduce our new pup Bonnie. We have had her two weeks now and we love her to bits. She is such a little character and has settled in really well. We had a three hour journey home from the breeder and she just sat quietly in her bed in her crate and didn't make any...

    The boys and I are so excited! Tomorrow afternoon, June 29th, we will be picking up Lucy from the breeder. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. She is 8 weeks old so I know there will be a lot of work to do. So far I have a crate & lner, puppy pads, Poochie Bells, Iams Smart puppy food...

    Hi, We have just discovered that our puppy has a very slight heart murmur. We are not due to pick him up until the end of next week. The vert tells me its nothing to worry about & quite common & is most likely to have disappeared by age 12 weeks. Has anyone had experience of this & have advise...
