HI I've just joined the site as I'm interested in buying a cockerpoo puppy. I've looked at several breeder websites and wondered if anyone knows a good breeder around the lancashire, Yorkshire or Cumbria area. I also would like peoples thoughts on bringing a puppy into a house with my other baby, my 16 year old cat who thinks she it part dog!! I love her to bits and don't want to upset her she is not like most cats independent and aloof. Has anyone else introduced a cockerpoo to a house with an older cat? Am I best just waiting.

Hi there and welcome .. It s always a consideration introducing someone new ... I think theres a thread asking people what other pets they've got .. mot sure if its good or not that your cat thinks its a dog lol... Good luck with your search, great choice I think you just need to know what you want and ask plenty of questions and ensure that you are happy with the answers.... but will keep a look out when you say what your after we love a project x

Hi,m thanks for you comments back. I would like a mix with a small cocker English and a miniture poodle, don't want anything too big. I like the apricot and cream colours or black. I probably would prefer a girl though I'm slightly concerned about when she comes into season!!

I have a 16 year old cat and after many months of trying to get the puppy, now 10 months old, to leave the cat alone, I have just given up. The cat had to have an emergency op a month ago to remove a kidney. We feel she deserves to have peace as she has been a pet to us since my kids were in secondary school. We have now divided the garden in two with a fence!!!!

I've wondered about Rosedaledoodles good to know someone has bought from there and can recommend. Since reading the problems other owners have had trying to introduce their new puppy to older cats, I think it would be best to wait and let Lulu live the rest of hers years in peace. At least I know the bread I want and that there is a good breader close by. Thanks for everyones help.

Hi
We have introduced our Cockapoo to our two cats aged 2 and 4 and Eddie was 9 months when we got him so not even a little pup. The cats disappeared for hours at a time at first (still came home for food though!) and Eddie is still learning the boundaries 6 weeks later, but I am sure with a little pup is must be easier?!

You are supposed to use stair gates and give the cat its own personal space to escape to and let them get the scent of each other through closed doors and never let the pup chase the cat. Our two cats swipe at Eddie when he gets too playful, but as he is older its been more difficult to train him to leave them alone!

Maybe as your cat is so old he wouldn't want to roam off? It is difficult to make the right decision and I certainly lost sleep stressing over introducing Eddie, but it is working and animals are very adaptable - it just takes time.

I suppose its down to your cats personality - mine had already grown up with our previous dog so although it was still scary for them, they had experience of dogs already.

I don't know if this is going to help much :confused: Sorry!

Hi Kendal

Sorry to hijack someone elses thread but can you give me an idea of when they stop growing please? Beau is only 19 and a bit weeks and someone said she is almost fully grown but I thought she had a lot more to go :)

Hi Mandy, I have a Cocker (11) who came after our cat and it was no problem, we have since got a siamese (other cat died) and Phoebe chases him at every opportunity. How can I stop pup from doing it, how do you introduce slowly etc.?

Like Mandy says, my Maisy is from Rosedale doodles, she is the most fantastic natured dog, I couldn't have asked for better - she was brilliant as a pup and was dry from the first night we brought her home. Mandy's friend has Maisy's half sister from Rosedales (same mum) and again is fantanstic.This is a piccie of the day we picked her up - a year ago today!



This is her at about 4 months




and now
