Hi, I'm new to this forum. My husband and I have decided, after much thought and research, to buy a cockapoo as they seem the perfect dog for us. However, I haven't had a dog since I was a child (a long time ago) and I feel quite nervous about the whole process. Part of the problem is that we live in Scotland and there aren't many breeders here (certainly from looking at "breedersonline"). Would anyone advise buying a puppy without seeing it first - partly because a couple we have seen advertised are from breeders in the south of England - so our journey down would probably be just to collect the dog, although obviously we would ask a lot about the dog from the breeder in our initial enquiries. Any advice/pointers/"pearls of wisdom" would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
