We already have a fantastic 13 month old male Cockapoo, Jasper and are now thinking that he (and we!) would really enjoy a companion Cockapoo. Any advice welcome, especially regarding male/female options.

hey welcome, boy or girl is a personal choice, i just cant see past my girls.


do you have any photos of jasper, what colour is he, what colour would you go for next.


you may find your older cockapoo will take to the puppy sometimes and not others, he may go in a huff as the puppy gets lots of atention, so make sure you spend lots alone time with the older dog. but they will become best buds eventualy.

Hi Jasper's Owners & Jasper

I have got two dogs and have experienced owning 3 for a short period of time too. I really think that having 2 dogs is ideal, but this is just my opinion from my experience. As your Jasper is 13 months it could go either way as he may not like a new puppy, but as long as you spoil them both .. the companionship can be amazing. I have some great videos of my two dogs playing and they truly love each other ... I would like 4 cockapoo’s one day, as I think the more the merrier :)

Let us know what you decide to do, but if you want a puppy ... you will make it work with Jasper and they could be the best friends ever... My Honey and Oakley are very close ... and I love watching them together xxx

Hi Jasper... got Mable when Wilf was three and had toyed with getting another probably about the same as you are doing now, but did nt want to get it wrong. Mine have played really well since Mable came, initially she was more interested in him than us and thought this maybe an issue but she soon came around to the idea of us being involved ;). However he would grr at her when he was resting and had had enough.We chose a girl only so there were no issues with anyone being the alpha male, although had no reason to think this would be an issue just did nt want to risk it, but Wilf has been neutered so with hind sight dont think it would have been an issue which ever ***. Good luck with your search, let us know whta you decide.... but once you've got a cockapoo you really cant help but want another x

Just re- read my post and it sounds like I meant that I did the right thing by waiting that long... I appreciate everyones situations are different but was only not wanting to make a mistake and being nervous , probably like you Dawn that stopped us. But looking back I would have done it earlier when I considered it when Wilf was 1 or the year after when I considered it when he was 2..... :D

I have 2 girls and they get on brilliantly :) We got ellie when maisy was 11 months old and they are the best of friends.

I think if you introduce them correctly in the beginning and take things slowly you should have no problems :)

I'm sure Jasper will love having a new brother (or sister!) x

I don't think the gap in age matters really ... long gap .... short gap ... its more to do with what the owner wants and can cope with .... and each owner knows their dogs and what they will be like with a new puppy... lots of doggy play dates with puppies may help too ....

Karen your post sounded fine :) I was like with having kids ... left a big gap :) ha ha ha

We have a gorgeous male Cockapoo called Rufus who turned 2 years old last month. On Saturday we are picking up our new pup, Basil, who is also male. SOOOO excited!! I was open to either a male or female companion but Basil was advertised and I just knew he was the dog for me. Something inside me screamed YES! It was a year earlier than we were planning but everything has slotted into place - thanks to the flexibility of Jukee Doodles. I personally love boys so I am delighted to be having another one. Watch this space for stories of how they get on!

Hi all and thanks for the replies,
Decision and purchase now made!!! Very little hanging about as you see. We are now in possesion of Monty, a black boy who is already making friends with gentle Jasper, our parti-blond, both courtesy of Jukee Doodles.

Photos to follow - when they sit still long enough!!!

Richard and Jill
