I'm new here! Although I've been looking at the site a while now. I know what to ask and all the health info etc. Any one had a puppy from notjustanyoldlabradoodles? I've seen some really good comments about them, just wanted to chat to others that may have brought from them before. Love the site, it's great!

Hi Sam - I met one today from there. - a very pretty apricot girl who is a working cross at 11 weeks of age just out on her first walk! The owner seemed very happy with her and the breeder. The only thing she said was that she was still waiting for the paperwork to be sent through but that's not necessarily a negative at this stage.

Hi and welcome! :)

I can only go by the website as I don't know anything about them. I would want to know what health tests the parent dogs have had and how the puppies are raised. It looks a nice site with lots of pictures but from a buyers point of view it doesn't really tell me alot.

Good luck with your search and let us know how you get on. :)

@Sarah:

They say: All our puppies are bred from health tested, happy parents, with good conformation, who are always here for you to meet. The puppies are raised within our family home with free access to the garden and patio areas. This unrestricted rearing lends itself to relaxed calm puppies who at 8 weeks old are nearly toilet trained! We do promote the use of puppy crates.

Along with eye tested at a specialist animal eye clinic at 6 weeks, routine health checked at 7 weeks, and microchipped.

They do have two litters on the ground at one time though. Which is in this case only 7 pups, but could of easily been 20.

They do have something like 14 dogs (three pups but they appear to be future breeders I think) though. Yikes.

Oh dear, what a numpty! I did miss the home bit. I would have liked them to be more specific on the health tests. When I looked it did not say what they were.

I need to stop coming on the computer late at night, should just go to bed at 10pm like a good girl! :eek:

I'm in agreement with Sarah about the lack of information regarding the health testing, mentioned on their website. If I were thinking of selecting a puppy from this breeder I'd want to know more about the health tests performed on the parents. The website mentions eye tests, but not whether these are DNA tests. My naturally suspicious nature leads me to wonder why specific information is not provided.

If the puppies are raised in the family home, does that mean that all the dogs live full time in the house, in which case they must have a big house for all of those dogs. The alternative is that the puppies are only brought into the house when they're born? If the latter, I would have thought that taking the Mums away from their usual environment could be stressful for them?

Hi Sam,

Welcome to the forum :welcome:

My name is Turi - I looked for the right Cockapoo breeder for almost a year and we brought home our female Cockapoo Saffi last week.

I spoke to anyoldlabradoodle in my search - at the time of our conversation she didn't PRA test her Poodles and tried to convince me that PRA testing wasn't necessary. Luckily, I was already a member of this forum so she didn't succeed! She was lovely, just misinformed.

What cross are you looking for and when? I would be more than happy to help if you would like?

Feel free to read about my search which goes into detail of the different crosses on my blog.

Good luck! :)

Hahahahaha don't be silly! It's like an impossible maze once you get started! But on a serious note I think I've got it down to not quite as many now! Discarded the ones that don't test, discarded the ones that don't fit my timescale, discarded the ones that won't have cream or apricots, discarded the ones that just don't get back to you....um....I think that's it! Thanks for asking! I'll keep you posted! Xx

This process of elimination sounds very familiar :rolleyes:

When would you like to get your puppy? And where are you based?

Early July, we live in Dubai, we are heading to our Uk home (cambs) for the summer to bring back our new family member, there's so much to organise but it's all mostly sorted apart from the new addition! :D
