Hi, my name is Fiona and yesterday I put my name down for a Cockapoo pup who should be joining our family at the end of the year! I'm very excited but nervous too and would be grateful for any tips anyone can give me about getting ready for our new arrival!

Hi Fiona. Welcome to the forum :). How exciting, what breed of Cockapoo have you gone for?. I brought my F2 Cockapoo home 5 months old and it feels like he has always been part of the family. The first few weeks of bringing them home is the hardest with toilet training and settling in but need to enjoy every minute they are that small, as they soon grow up!. We crate trained Bailey, as this was what he was use to at the breeder's and I think it was the best thing for toilet training during the night, in fact when he was tiny he would take himself into his crate to sleep during the day too :). He was house trained by the time he was 3 months old, which was very good. One tip I would give you learning from my own mistake keep them on their own food in you can as Bailey was given some of our food and since then has been a real pain eating his own puppy food. We have to take his puppy food out on walks as this is the only time he will eat it!. A lot of people I have spoken to have had the same problem. They completely change your life for the better - such lovely dogs :)

Hi, thank you- I'm sure I'll be asking for lots of advice before and after my puppy arrives! We are having an f1 working cockapoo, probably chocolate but no telling for sure for a while yet! We've gone with happy tails in notts after a very successful visit and them filling all of our criteria. I haven't told my three boys as I want it to be a surprise but I may explode!

He/she is going to be very cute indeed. Your three boys are going to be so excited when you tell them/ when you bring your puppy home and they see them, their faces are going to be a picture (have to have the camera ready) - lovely :) Yes can just imagine how hard it is for you to keep it a surprise when its so exciting and you really want to tell them! :)

Thank you guys for the warm welcome. My boys are 7, 9 and 11 and have been desperate for a dog for an age. We've been dog sitting for a couple of years quite regularly which I've used as a bit of a test to see if the novelty wears off, but it hasnt so we've decided to take the plunge...
