Q. Are Cockapoos hypoallergenic?
A. Although Cockapoos are typically touted as hypoallergenic dogs because of the poodle gene, and will shed less than a Cocker Spaniel, it is still possible to react to the dander or saliva.
Q. What brand of dog food do you recommend.
A. We feed our dogs and puppies Royal Canin. It is readily available at many speciality pet supply retailers across Canada.
Q. Do you ship?
A. In the past prior to the pandemic we have shipped a few times across Canada using Air Canada and West Jet, however at this time we prefer not to ship our puppies. We will resume shipping after the pandemic.
Q. How big do your puppies grow to be?
A. Typically our puppies mature to range in size between 16 and 24 lbs. We list an estimated adult size beside each puppy on our Available Puppies page. This is an estimate based on the size of the parents and outcomes from previous litters.
Q. Do you dock the tails?
A. We do not dock the tails. The tails are left in tact. We find the natural tail suits the Cockapoo breed well.
Q. What type of supplies do you recommend for a new puppy?
A. Some basic supplies includes but are not limited to:
A steel wire kennel with divider panel
Small rubber and rope toys
Q. What size Poodle do you breed with?
A. The stud is a Medium Poodle and he weighs 15 lbs.
Q. Do the puppies come vaccinated?
A. DHPP vaccine is administered by our Veterinarian at 8 weeks of age. DHPP is a core vaccine. This means that all dogs should receive this vaccine, regardless of their lifestyle or individual risk. It is important to follow the vaccination schedule that your Veterinarian recommends.
Q. Are your puppies house trained?
A. We send our puppies home at 8 weeks of age. At this age the puppies have small and weak bladders so they urinate frequently. The puppies will be introduced to pee pads around 4 weeks of age and we are happy to provide a bathroom and feeding schedule to follow that will be similar to the one we raise the puppies on.
Q. At what age are the puppies ready to go their new home?
A. Although some puppies wean quickly, some litters may require more time to wean from the Mother's milk to dry puppy food. Each litter is unique but typically at 8 weeks of age the puppy is fully weaned and ready to leave the mother.
