    Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and I am looking for some advice on Cockapoo breeders in the uk.

    I know there is a big time breeder in the west of wales, but does anyone have any input about them? Has anyone been out to see the set up etc? Has anyone had a Cockapoo from this breeder, if so have you had any problems with the dog?

    Can anyone recommend a Cockapoo breeder to me?

    Please help, as I have had a bad experience with a breeder in the past, and do not want to make the same mistake again.

    if theyre a big time breeder in Wales then chances are theyre a puppy farmer:( so you should never buy from places like that, you need to find a responsible breeder who does all the relevant health testing for the cross unfortunatley it isnt easy because finding ethical responsible breeders of crosses is like finding a needle in a haystack.

    as both poodles and cocker spaniels can suffer from luxating patellas the sire and dam should be tested for this condition. Poodles and cockers can also suffer from a number of eye disorders like PRA so would they would need to be tested by an BVA opthalmic specialist before breeding for this aswell, im not sure what other tests would be advisable.

    and welcome to the forum:)

    There are alot of Puppy Farm in Wales I am afraid to say..which make the good breeders in Wales look bad., and some are very sneeky too, they breed their dogs and pass the pups onto freinds and family to sell on, so you only get to see the clean lovely tidy houses with borrowed parents. If it sounds iffy then walk away and dont buy a puppy just coz you feel sorry for it. word of mouth is better if you can find someone who knows of anyone.

    Hi
    I got my little gem from a lady in Blackburn, she owned the poodle mother and the son the father, a cocker. You can see both parents and they were raised in the house. Look on the sites for dog breeders and you will probably see them, they do stand out as the mother is the poodle unusually.
    I'm sorry but I can't remember her name.
    I've had Bali for a year now and despite the pathological hatred for staying the apricot colour she was born with and being a magnet for any muddy puddle, she is fantastic!

    Good luck with your search!

    Thank you for your reply. I don't suppose you have a photo of her that you could show me. I've not heard of the parents being the opposite way round and I'd be interested to see if there is a difference :)

    Hi.
    Thanks for all that. It does state on their website that their stud dogs are optigen tested, and have certificates to show this, and I get the impression they care about what they are doing.
