Hi, I was looking at a show cocker, although having read some threads I think that size wise an american might be better. I read some bad stuff about minature cockapoos so thought I would steer clear. Not too fused about colour, would like cream or White and black if possible and would prefer a bitch

Hello and welcome!

It is such an exciting time for you. There is a thread in the breeding section which will help you think about finding a breeder and like Kendal says you can have a look at Breedersonline to see if there is anyone local to you. Please be sure that the breeder you choose health checks the parent dogs and don't be afraid to ask lots of questions and visit a few breeders.

Good luck with your search and ask lots of questions on here as there is a wealth of Cockapoo knowledge and experience! :)

Hallo Shanti, as you can see I am also from Surrey. I got Dexter from a home breeder in Kent from breeders online. He is a toy but he has lots of friends who are minis and I have never heard anything bad about them.

Hi, thank you for your replies, when I wrote mini I meant toy ( sorry it was late and I was so excited having been looking at so many cockatoo sites ). It is a toy cockapoo that we would really like , the bit I read that was not good was on the Anzil site. Dexter I would be really interested to hear about your toy cockapoo and the breeder in Surrey.

Good luck.. you will find your dream puppy soon

Great breed choice but dont rule out either Toy or Miniature, English or American .. just go and see some breeders and work out what mix you prefer after seeing Mum & Dad ...

Visit both professional breeders are local hobby breeders .. Breeders Online is a good place to start ... enjoy it .. this is your puppy hunt after all ....

Oh I love looking for a new puppy xxxx

Hi Shanti and welcome. My Dylan is a toy poodle dad and an English working cocker mum and he is absolutely gorgeous, although a little noisy!! Dylan is large for a toy, at about 14 inches, and some of the miniatures are actually a bit smaller than him, but some are much larger, so if you are particular about what size you want, ask careful questions of the breeder, as the size seems to depend more on the mum. The smallest pups seem to be from the American cocker crosses. Good luck in your search!

Hi, thank you, what size will dexter grow to ? I am on anzils list
We openly suggest people look to visit at least 2 if not 3 different breeders and never take your cheque book x

Though even as breeders ourselves We would certainly recommend Anthony and Anzil - we have never heard a bad thing about him - he has lovely dogs; lovely puppies; people always say how knowledgable Anthnoy and he is now fully licensed.

Good Luck and look forward to pics in the future x

Hi Shanti, We got Isla from Anzils two weeks ago. I can't praise this breeder enough! You get to meet all the dogs, all very calm and friendly. He's very honest about their personality and knows them well. He really does care about his dogs and his puppies. He pays attention to the detail and has covered everything, and he's a really nice guy too! When Isla came home, because she was use to a crate, it was very easy to get her to sleep in it. She cried for the first 45 minutes on the first night, then slept though till about 7, since then she's taken herself off to bed at about 8.00 and doesn't get up until about 7.00, when we get up. We don't hear a sound from her. She's great around other dogs and children, it's clear she's been socialised well. Nothing seems to phase her. She's got a really lovely temperament. Everyone loves her and makes comments when we take her out (as they do with everyones cockapoo!) I live in Kent and did a lot of research on breeders. I was recommended Anthony by a friend. I decided to go with him and do the five hour journey to get there because I couldn't find a breeder that bread show cockers any nearer that I felt completely happy about. It was well worth the journey, and I have no regrets about that. Anthony said that he expects Isla to be between 13 to 15 inches high. Penny the mother is small for a show cocker. She is a show/miniature cross. Sorry for rambling!

I'm not sure how big he'll get as his mum was quite small & slender - he seems to be growing quite quick though so hopefully he'll be a bit bigger than mum so i suppose about knee high!!

Hi Shanti,
I have an American Miniature cross and my breeder said he would be about 14" fully grown. He is now 5 months and seems to be on track for that height. I went for American because I'd researched that they generally come up smaller than English. My experience to date, when meeting other English cross pups (both working and show types) of his age, is that it is true. However it seems it really does depend on the parent dogs as so many people here have already said.

Good luck in your search and keep us posted when you find your dream pup.
