Helpful Info

Cockapoos/Spoodles are low to non-shedding dogs.  They tend to be smaller dogs in the range of 15-35 lbs.  

We ask that everyone read at least one of the following books in preparation for bringing your new family member home.  We strongly recommend Puppy Culture as it will give you insight on how your puppy is being raised and how to continue to do so.  

  • The Puppy Primer by Patricia McConnell and Brenda Scidmore
  • Raising Puppies and Kids Together by Pia Silvani & Lynn Eckhardt
  • How to Behave So Your Dog Behaves by Sophia Yin

Start researching vets and trainers before you get your puppy.  They will need to visit the vet within 3 days of going home with you as well as get enrolled in puppy kindergarten within a week or two of going home...don't wait as they will learn bad habits in the meantime!!!

Your puppy will be eating Fromm Puppy Gold when they come home.  They will be eating approximately 1/3 cup per meal for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  If you want to swtich foods, please wait at least a month until they are settled in at their new home otherwise you will likely experience loose stools.
