Hi Curt3007,

I have copied our post below from another thread but I think it is relevant for you in your search for a healthy happy puppy:-

The choices you must make are whether to buy a rescue dog, a cheap 'back street' bred puppy, a pup from a hobby breeder (some are very experienced and some are not so) or from a licenced professional breeder with testimonials and a reputation to protect.

We ourselves always recommend that buyers do more than just surf the internet. We say go and view at least 2 if not 3 breeders. Never take your cheque book and be prepared to walk away to give yourself time to think rationally. Any reputable breeder will not do 'hard sell'. We understand that finding the right puppy is paramount to you being a happy owner at the end of the day, happy owners make happy dogs.

Prices do vary but remember there are a lot of costs involved in raising a puppy to the highest, healthiest standard.
Quality breeding mums carry a premium themselves.
Breeding dogs should have relevant health checks by vets.
Breeding dogs need worming, flea treatment and vaccinating.
Breeding dogs need good kenneling and vet care.
Breeding dogs need premium food, which costs.
Pups must have the best heated housing.
Pups must be wormed every two weeks from two weeks old.
Pups must be kept clear of fleas, ticks, mites and ear mites.
Pups need best quality weaning food.
Pups must be socialized before they are 8 weeks old.
Ideally pups should be microchipped and have their first vaccination before leaving the breeder at 8 weeks old.

The most important factor you need to concentrate on is which 'type' of cockapoo suits you and your lifestyle best so you must be sure what the adult cockapoo will be like. The purchase price should be secondary. In our experience you get 60% of the end result from mum. So you need to meet and like her too.

Happy hunting.

As has been discussed on other threads we have had the first two litters (of ten) born this week. We are now expectantly waiting for the other ladies to produce within the next two weeks.
These puppies will be leaving us between the end of July to mid-August.
We currently have 40 people who are on our waiting list - but we do predict (subject to getting our statistical average litter size) that there will be easily in excess of 40 puppies born.
At present - we air on the side of caution and are openly informing new enquiries that the Winter List is available - on the understanding that those on the Winter List would be offered the extra Summer puppies first - before new enquiries.

As per my previous post, if you are newly looking into the breed, with all it's variables we certainly suggest people visit several breeders.

We would welcome a visit and would happily show you all of our dogs and the set-up here - even if it were just for a "fact finding tour".

Treacle is 7 months old - she came from SYLML - very happy with everything - info given , health checks, vaccinations!
Treacle has a lovely nature - fun loving, cheeky, very loyal and fit and healthy. Her father is the infamous Zac - he is quite a cheeky chap and seems to pass his FUN genes on!
Good luck with your search!
