HI All,

Found this great site last night and have spent a few happy hours looking at all the lovely piccies of your adorable dogs and doing some research.

We are currently owned by a beautiful German Shorthaired Pointer girl and used to have a Bearded Collie. Our GSP is now 7 and we have recently started thinking of a getting a puppy and have admired Cockapoo's and Labradoodles for some time now.

So I am currently trying to do as much research as possible to enable us to make the right decision, leaning towards a Cockapoo at the moment as Im not as keen on having 2 large dogs ( although we live in the country and have the space )

Im also leaning towards a boy and may train him as a gundog. So does anyone have a Cockapoo from Scotland that they use as a gundog ? Long call I know ! but would be interested if there are any out there ? or even just a good breeder in Scotland.:)

Also are there any sites where you can compare Cockapoos and Labradoodles, and pictures of dogs with American Cockers as mum as compared to working cockers as mum etc etc ?

Thanks for any help

Most Labradoodles are Lab x Standard Poodle and they come up really big. Some are crossing Labs with miniature poodles so they'll be smaller but there will be quite a size range within this cross as well. My Cockapoo is English working x miniature and she is 14 inches fully grown.
I'm an apricot/gold fanatic and have spent too many hours comparing puppy/adult coat colour. Most apricots and golds seem to lighten a bit while the very dark reds seem to hold their colour better (like the red colour on Kendal's Delta)

This is Flo as a baby (bottom right)...

and this is her colour now...

SO this may be a silly question, but I am a Canadian City girl....what does a gun dog do? is it for hunting?? like retrieval of birds?
Three different roles - they retrieve game, flush out game by driving it out from it's hiding place or find game.
and are cockapoos genetically good at doing this?
Quite a few Cockapoos in UK are gundog trained.
