Hi all,
Thought i would introduce myself, we are looking to take on our first canine family member in the not too distant future and we are 99% sure we would love a cockapoo! I never fail to be impressed with their wonderful temperaments!
After much lurking on the forum and much research, we are going to visit jukee doodles tomorrow and would love to hear from anybody else who has had a puppy from them! We are willing to wait for our perfect little girl or boy and are very excited about the day when we finally bring our chosen pup home..... Any advice or help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated, we live in a village surrounded by fields and great dog walks, as well as being close to rutland water.... Also as we live near grantham/stamford/bourne i would appreciate any info about About obedience classes
And dog agility centres nearby (agility for a little later of course), both myself and my husband have been raised with dogs as part of the family, but this will be our first dog together as a family. I would particularly appreciate any advice about introductions to cats, as we have a gorgeous laid back 3 yr old pedigree british shorthair silver tabby!
Thx in advance and hi!

Hi and welcome to the forum we live in Claypole about 10 mile from Grantham we have two JD puppies Milo & Alfie who are now 13 weeks old. There are a number of Cockapoo's in this area so you will almost certainly bump into one of us sometime....You have certainly made a great decision to visit JukeeDoodles:):) Have a great visit and we look forward to hearing how it went...;) As for dog training classes have a look on Ichthus Dog Training web site (www.iccdogtraining.co.uk) we started our puppy socialisation last week.

Hi Claire, and welcome! I picked up my second Jukee Doodle pup just 2 weeks ago and can personally highly recommend them. I reckon by the end of your visit you will be 100 % sure a Cockapoo is for you! I think it would be good to visit about 3 breeders so you can be sure which is the breeder for you. A puppy is a huge investment and so you want to get it right first time! Trust your instincts.

Re cats, as you had your cat first, I am sure it will soon tell your new puppy who is boss! My cat made things very clear at the outset! FYI the Jukee Doodles puppies are around cats when they are brought up to the house. There are some great photos on their website.

Enjoy your search. It's a very exciting time. :)

Hi Claire!

Well no wonder you are visiting JD - not only are they local to you but they are brilliant. We have a JD pup called Luna who is 13 weeks old and adorable. So loving and brilliant with the kids. There are many JD puppies on here. I can't help you with cats (although JD have many that the pups enjoy harrassing and chasing so we've found that cats don't really bother Luna) and I can't answer your local questions but we live surrounded by fields and it's brilliant being able to be off lead within 5 mins of home.

We reviewed this site regularly between making a deposit and collecting Luna and found all the information we required on here - don't be afraid to ask any questions however silly you may think they are :).

This is such an exciting time for you - enjoy every minute and keep us all up to date!

Seems a lot of you have JD puppies on here- I might have to pay them a visit.
Though I was really looking for a small breeder but am open-minded, as long as they do health tests and do everything I require from a breeder.:)

Hi Claire i have Buddy who is JD puppy,and i also live near Grantham (heading towards Nottingham way) We also go to icc dog training they also do agility.
I love british shorthair cats and must admit i was torn between getting a new kitten(my cat died after 12 years last Sept) or a puppy .Must say puppies are alot harder work then kittens so its been abit of an eye opener for me as ive never had a dog before.

Welcome to the forum cant wait to see which puppy you choose good look with the search dx

Hi and welcome

Enjoy your puppy choosing :D

We can recommend ICC dog training - they have more than one centre in our area so you should find one close to you and I think with cats you probably need to use a stairgate somewhere in the house so that the cat can escape to its own area if it needs to - we have two cats and we are still having fun and games but that is because Eddie was 8 months old when we got him - you should be fine with a little pup :) Just takes time...

Hi Claire, I have a 12 week old puppy called Max, and he is from JD's! If I was doing it all again I would 100% go back to JD's as they were fantastic. Enjoy your tour, it's great fun meeting all their dogs!

Max is a lovely little puppy, well socialised, intelligent and confident, and he is so cuddly and loving. I look forward to hearing about your visit and also about your pup when you choose it!

update on my visit!!

well! what can i say other than the warmest thankyou to stephen and julia for the fantastic tour and information session today, i cannot praise them or their dogs/puppies highly enough...from their hygiene standards and facilities down to some of the most genuinly happy dogs i have ever seen....the bitches in particular were delightful and we loved coco in particular! what a fantastic new addition to the family, i have no doubt she will produce some absolutely gorgeous pups in the not too distant future (if and when we come back you can count us in for one!)!!!! thank goodness that all the puppies today were reserved, as their was one little sable pup in particular that i could have walked away with there and then!! lol!!! whoever is the mumy and daddy is going to be very happy indeed! oh and as for buzz? dont get me started, what a gorgeous cuddly boy!! a real credit to you!!!
If we decide to go for a working cross cockapoo for definite, then there is absolutely no doubt in my mind whatsoever that i fully intend to go right back to jukees, there really would be no need to go anywhere else! For the sake of research however (and also down to jukees recommendation to see other breeders) I think it is really important that we see some american cockapoos in the flesh to make a proper and well researched comparison in both temperamant and size and stature.
We are going to have our baby for a long time so it is really important to make sure that we have made exactly the right decision for him/her and our family. This is most certainly no reflection on Jukees in any way shape or form, merely an important research excercise, the only problem i appear to be having, is finding a good reputable breeder of americans within 1 to 1 1/2 hours of us (we live between bourne/grantham in lincolnshire, any help with this search would be greatly appreciated!! :) also it would need to be a breeder with whom we can view at least one fully grown cockapoo.

Thanks all so far for all your recommendations and i will certainly check out ICC (think thats right?) for obedience classes etc.. (daughter and i would like to sit in on some classes prior to bringing pup home to get a head start etc....

Thanks again to Stephen and julia.... we hope to see you again soon ;)

Hi Claire, I have 2 cockapoos, one American cross and one working cocker cross ... the working cross is from Jukee Doodles. Both are lovely and quite different.

If I get a third (don't tell my husband!) I would definitely go back to JDs ... Bess from JD is 12 weeks old and is a wonderful little pup!

Good luck with your search.

Hi,
just catching up on the threads as been away on holiday. I have an American cross and he has a wonderful temperament and the perfect size for me (14"). My dog was from a hobby breeder in Kent but I think Sylmls near Lincoln (see Pinetrees cockapoos) do American crosses and there are a few people on here with their dogs. Good luck with your search.

Great to hear you are looking for a cockapoo puppy .. you seem to know exactly what type you are after, which is half of the battle over .. now to find a breeder... there are many good breeders out there and I am sure you will find one that ticks all your boxes.... please have a peep at my puppy buying guide on my dogs life, it may help you find your perfect puppy, I think buying a puppy is a very personal experience so what one person likes in a breeder, another many not, if you know what I mean xxx

I wouldn't like to recommend a breeder as my requirements may not suit what you are looking for in a breeder, however I am fussy one when it comes to picking puppies and breeders these days ... Happy Puppy Search

Hi Claire,
I too have a JD pup and echo what everyone else has said about them. If you are able to travel, don't dismiss breeders further away to look for an American cross. We travelled 5 1/2 hours for Izzy, and she travelled home with no problems at all. It's only one or two journeys, for a lifetime of cockapoo :)
