Going to look at our first litter of puppy's tomorrow, 3 weeks old. What should I be looking for? There chocolate/ black with White bits on apparently! English show mum and miniature poodle dad.
I'm so excited! But worried I'll get carried away and want them all!
Any help will be greatly appreciated!

hi Laura its an exciting time... rather than me waffle on you'll probably find JoJos blog about puppy selection very useful. At the bottom of any of JoJo's posts there is a link. Gives you all the things you should need to know, be confident ask questions and go with your head not your heart, let us know how you get on x

Hi Laura... happy puppy search ...

Thanks Karen for telling Laura about My Dogs Life puppy guide.... it may help you find a good breeder and a puppy of your choice ...

Where are you viewing puppies?

Are you really excited .. I get so excited before I visit puppies .. and I have seen a few, but it never fades my excitement ....

Seeing them at a local lady who advertised them in a school newsletter! So just a hobby breeder I guess! Seems lovely on the phone an really wants the puppies to go to family homes :)
I think there show cockers/miniature poodle, black and chocolate with White patches!
I'm really excited, but worried as there's only 1 girl left and we want a girl but she might not be the right one! So don't want to rush into picking her for the sake of it!

Cute baby by the way ... I like children just as much as I like cockapoos & cakes :)

Sometimes things like this are just meant to be .....

Oh thanks! Yeah my son is gorgeous! He loves my mums dog (a collie) so will be nice to have one of our own to grow up with, I think it's important for him to learn how to treat animals and enjoy looking after a pet!
Fingers crossed!

hi laura , we too are in search of our 1st cockapoo puppy , dont be put off by there only being one girl left ... with our last dog (a westie) we were searching for a girl .. only one boy left in the liiter went to look anyway when we got there the next day , the buyer of the only girl in that litter had changed her mind (she didnt want to wait 3 weeks till they were ready!) well we fell in love ... we waited the 3 weeks and bought her home , she was the most special little dog ever , sometimes fate plays apart in the choosing of pups and owners :) good luck tonight ,

yes i will! not sure if i should just say, dont tell me which is the girl, and then sit and get to know them and see which ones i really love? and then go from there. I only thought about a girl because i grew up with girl dogs and im a bit over run with boys in my family! Partner, 7month old baby, and 4 month old kitten all boys!!! feel i need some girly company haha!

I think just go for a puppy you like :) ...

I have been researching which puppy to choose from a litter and to be honest just pick one you like ... I have read so much ref size, *** and really the best advice I could give you is each puppy is different... go for one you like ..

Boys, girls, large and small puppies can all have unwanted behaviour and can all be equally loving pets ... :)
