Hi Trixie, I live near Chelmsford but we couldn't find a breeder that felt right for us so we ended up travelling to Lincolnshire - Everybody is different though - definitely worth a visit to a breeders first to see there set up and how you feel there :) Colne Valley seems to be a popular though.

Thanks everyone - it's a bit of a minefield!! My husband has spoken to a lady called Trudy in the Chelmsford area, just wondered if anyone had any experience with her. We're off to meet another breeder in Berkshire today, Nicky, who has come highly recommended - very exciting!!

Our main issue is that we would really love to get our puppy over the summer hols so that there are plenty of people around and of course a puppy that has come from a good home... Other than that we're not fussy!!

Any advice welcome!:)

I'd recommend looking to visit at least two different breeders - and I'd certainly suggest you leave your cheque-book at home. Always treat the visit as a "fact Finding" tour and try and see / ask as much as you can.

I'd also suggest having a read of The Cockapoo Club's website:

Good Luck.

Hi Trixie, I'm thinking of going to see Nicki too (if it's the same one - in Chieveley?) and just wondered how you got on? Thanks.

Congratulations! Your new pup is going to be absolutely gorgeous! It's so exciting, bet you can't wait? But the time soon goes, you will soon be going to meet your new little one for the first time then going back to collect him/her to bring them home :)
