FYI: I do not always support the act of crossbreeding and mixbreeding dogs. However all of our purebreds were crossed with another breed at some point to get the end result of that purebred dog. Cockapoo's have been bred for some time now and I feel as though that they have been well established, in some breeders hands, and are healthy, great little dogs that I truely feel comfortable with. As you know on my "About Us" page the Cockapoo was our 1st family dog. I have a passion for the Cockapoo and would not be breeding Cockapoo's if I didn't like the result. We carefully select our purebred Cockers and Poodles that we breed, we don't just breed to have a Cockapoo. Our Cocker's and Poodle's must meet breed standard and must be friendly, healthy dogs. Yes I like to show my dogs and no you can not show a Cockapoo in an AKC confirmation ring, but who knows what the future holds and you don't always need to show a dog to prove he is a great, healthy and beautiful companion! The ACA shows will allow you to show your Cockapoo's now in their ICA portion of the show, also if your Cockapoo has been bred Cockapoo to Cockapoo for 3 consecutive generations you can now enter your dog in thier ACA Confirmation ring.
We recommend having your pet spayed or neutered at around 6 months of age to prevent any unplanned breedings.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE COCKAPOO BREED:
Personality: Cockapoos are highly trainable, with a keen intelligence. They are curious and eager to perform. They do well with one-person owners as well as with families with young children. They are very people-oriented, outgoing and happy dogs.
Hair: Coat is usually dense; may be wavy or curly; usually little-to-no-shedding.
1st Generation Cockapoo's are good for people with allergies.
Tails: Tails may be docked or not. (Both are acceptable.) Our Cockapoo puppies tails are generally docked to a medium length, unless otherwise requested.
Lifespan: Generally 14 to 18 years, even into the 20’s.
Activity Level: They adapt well to apartments and homes, but are also “at home” on the largest farm. They have a moderate activity level. Cockapoo's are very deversified.
Cockapoo's have been around for years. Me and my mother have bred and raised the Cocker Spaniel for over 19 years. Years ago we introduced the Poodle. The Cockapoo's have a loving, smart and loyal personality without all the shedding of the Cocker. They are non-shedding dogs because of the Poodle in them. They are wonderful with children and just good all around family pets. They are quick to learn and make a nice Emotional Support, Therapy or Service Dog. Our Cockapoo puppies will be registered with the International Canine Association to show that both mother and father are registered purebreeds. We look forward to sharing the love of Cockapoo with other families and providing you and your family with that companionship you have been searching for.

Our Cockapoo puppies are socialized around children and other pets on a daily basis. We provide early neurological stimulation, child and sound socialized, so your puppy will have the best start. Upon leaving most of Cockapoo puppies will be able to use a doggy door and/or puppy pads to do thier business and introduced to a crate. We like the docked tail look of the Cockapoo, so unless requested our Cockapoo Puppies will have their tails docked and dew claws removed.
Each Cockapoo puppy is microchipped for thier safety unless you request otherwise, please let us know. All puppies are vet checked prior to leaving.
Prices generally start at $1,200 and up. We do not raise our puppies cheap therefore our price reflects the care and quality you are getting in one of our puppies. Prices subject to change.
Our Cockapoo puppies are 1st generation ("TRUE Cockapoo") puppies. They come from carefully selected, AKC registered, healthy and good tempered parents for a quality Cockapoo puppy for your family. We take our Cockapoo breeding very serious to insure we are providing you with a puppy that would be a wonderful companion or potential service or therapy dog.
What supplies do I need for my new puppy?
It depends a lot on how you want to train your puppy, house training, ect.. but here is a list of things that we like to have here.
Treats (we like Bil Jac Treats best), NuVet Supplements (can be used as treats also)
Leash, collar and/or harness
Toys (No Rawhide or anything that can be swallowed)
Snuggle Puppy or clock in sock or something to snuggle with
Crate; if crate training
Wee Wee Pads
Expen or also called excercise pen/play pen (we use one inside the house and one outside for a potty area)
Baby Gates to keep the puppy in a certain area of your home until house trained fully
Vinegar water or some type of cleaner in case of an accident
Puppy shampoo & conditioner (we like to use either Chris Christensen or Pure Paws products you can google them online)
A couple towels for puppy
Straight toothed comb & brush
Vet phone number on hand and appointments scheduled for routine vaccinations
I like to keep a bag packed for the car when we travel:
Cleaner / Baby Wipes
Water & Water Bowl
Light Weight Collar & Light Weight Long Leash
What shots will my puppy have?
Each puppy will come with their own individual vaccination and deworming record that you will need to take to your vet for their first initial checkup. This will let the vet know what he will need to follow up on. Your new puppy will need to be kept up to date on his booter vaccines, just like a human baby. We start each puppy here with the following:
Deworming scheduled for every 2 weeks at minimum, until monthly preventative is started.
5-6 weeks of age they get a NeoPar Shot. (this is a high titer Parvo Vaccination) & Kennel Cough.
8 weeks of age they get a 6 way. Parvo, Distemper, Adenovirus Type 2, Parianfluenza & Corona.
If we still have the puppy past 8 weeks we do follow up boosters every 3 weeks until they are 17 weeks of age. 6 months, 9 months and 1 year, then yearly or bi-yearly thereafter.
Rabies Vaccination is given at 12 weeks or older.
Do the puppies get their vaccinations from the vet or do you do them yourself?
It has been brought to my attention by a previous buyer of one of our puppies, that I should have this information on my website. My sincere apologies if this information is something you as a buyer wanted that I did not provide previously. YES, I give all the vaccines your new baby needs, as per my vet recommendations and under my vets guidelines, except for the rabies vaccine and my vet gives that at the recommended age as required by state laws. I have many, many hours of continuing education on vaccines and how to give and monitor them along with many, many years experience giving them as well. My vet does sign off on my vaccine protocol. These vaccines are purchased directly from Revival Animal Health and sent to me in a cooler the next day and they are immediately put in a refrigerator that is only used for vaccines where the temperature is very closely monitor, the exact same way our vet does. We use a trusted brand called Nobivac. I am very strictly monitored as a breeder here in the state of Missouri. Some states don't have the guidelines and regulations that we have here in our state, so it is understood if you or your vet may not trust some breeders or rescue's that are not regulated or those who may not be doing things to your expectations. There are some that may purchase shots from a feed store or pet store, and no, those can't always be fully trusted, on the brand, or on how they are purchased, or handled. Please understand that I do know the fear of purchasing a puppy and not knowing if it had proper vaccinations or if the person is lying about them to cut cost or etc, that's why my standard's are so much higher. But because I deeply care about each of my dogs and puppies, remember these are my babies first, if you cannot trust me and my vaccine protocol, as your new companion's breeder, then you have not found the breeder you are looking for so please keep searching until you can find a breeder you trust. I do not want the babies I've worked so hard to provide for families, to be over vaccinated and made sick, because you or your vet don't trust that I have done it properly. A vet can be very intimidating but stick to what is best for your puppy. A breeder's years of experience, heart ache, success, failure, tears, trial and error and more ceu credit hours than that are required to be done by most vets means so much to back a good breeder. Thank you to all those who have trusted me and as your Breeder!
Can we come see the puppies?
We do completely understand the need to want to see the babies in person. But there are several factors we must take in consideration. We do not allow anyone to come out to see the puppies until they are at least 6-7 weeks old. Before this time they are still with their mothers and just like us, the momma's get a little nervous when there are strangers coming in and out looking at their babies and touching them and taking them from them when they are wanting to keep them all together and protect them until weaning age. Just think about what it would be like if you had these babies and were a little dog and you had all these different people coming into your space, hovering over you and touching your babies. I've seen the look in their eyes and as their owner I just want to protect them from that fear of "what's going on?" Another factor that plays a roll in this is diseases, you may have walked somewhere previously and not known it but may have picked something up on your shoes or even clothing. Our puppies generally get vaccinated at 6 weeks of age so for their protection they need to be vaccinated first before being handled or seen. Any puppies that are already sold will not be available for viewing as they are already spoken for and we are protecting someone else's pet at that point. Most of our puppies are chosen by the pictures and/or video's we send out. And a lot of times they are sold by the time they are 6 weeks old. I know that makes it hard for those of you looking to come out and pick out a puppy. With the way the demand, technology, laws and times have changed it just makes it nearly impossible to be able to choose a puppy in this way any longer without missing out on the puppy you originally thought you wanted. I understand this is hard for some, we totally get it... But to make sure we can get all of our puppies placed in loving homes safely this is just the way it is. If you were to come out before they were 6 weeks old the only thing you really would be seeing is what colors they were or how they compared to size in the litter, which you can see in pictures or speaking with me. A puppies eyes don't open till they are 2 weeks old, then ears open at 3 weeks, visual site improves by 4 weeks.... they are just sleeping alot up to this point because it takes so much energy to grow. Personality really doesn't start to come out till they are 7 weeks and older, after they leave momma, then sometimes that changes after they get in their new homes and they adapt your rules and boundaries. A deposit must be placed on a puppy before we will allow you to come out. No exceptions! This is transferable to another puppy if you so choose another puppy that is available at the time you visit. This insure's you are not waisting my time away from my dogs/puppies and family, helps give a little extra security that you are not a thief or criminal and you are serious about the commitment. Deposits can be transferred to future litters as well.
Are the puppies potty trained?
Our puppies are started on potty pad / paper training. Some introduction to the crate is started upon their leaving. Here is a link to the local trainers for more information on house breaking:
Why are your puppy prices what they are?
When you purchase a puppy from us you are choosing a puppy from a legal, licensed, professional breeder. To be a legal licensed professional breeder in the State of Missouri takes a lot of time, money, love and passion for the breed. When you purchase a puppy from us you are not bringing home a puppy from a backyard breeder, illegal breeder, a flipper, hobby breeder or just someone trying to make a buck. You are bringing home a puppy that comes to you from loving hands that is healthy, fully vaccinated, fed a high quality food from the beginning for the best start, vet checked, health guaranteed, healthy parents and from a breeder who understands that puppy's background and where it came from, socialized and loved from day one, someone who sat beside momma while she was birthing and helped each baby take their first breath of life.
It's not cheap raising quality, healthy puppies. Our puppies are worth it!

We recommend the Snuggle Puppy
Dogs and puppies are pack animals and are instinctively drawn to their mother and others in their pack. Snuggle Puppy recreates that intimacy with physical warmth and a simulated heartbeat. The result is a calmer, more peaceful pet - one that feels less loneliness, fear and separation anxiety.
