  3. What's best for a new cockapoo?

    Cockapoo Talk
    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?

  4. Insurance

    Cockapoo Talk
    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! 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...
  9. New puppy on the grass

    The Puppy Place
    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...
  10. Scared but excited

    Introductions
    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...
