Puppies, Puppies, Puppies!

Cherry pups

We have been busy with our Springs litters and our Summer puppies are also well underway. Firstly, I’d like to apologise to those of you who have been unsuccessful in getting a puppy this time. Unfortunately dog breeding isn’t an exact science and despite my best efforts, sometimes things don’t quite go to plan!

I have had a couple of Cavalier girls fail to conceive this year in addition to others having unusually small litters. Generally, I keep my boys and girl totally separate and the boys are only put with the girls when they are ready for mating, so that I can supervise things, and of course prevent any unplanned pregnancies. I have decided to change things up a little and now the Cavalier girls that I plan to breed this year are actually living with Woody full time, so that I don’t miss their heat cycle and optimum time for mating. As you can imagine, Woody is in his element with his little harem!

Both Anna & Disney have already been mated to Woody, this will be a first litter for both girls so fingers(and toes!) crossed for some Cavapoo babies late July. At this time the waiting list for these puppies is paused. Those people on the waiting list who have been unsuccessful will have priority. Depending on numbers, there may be some limited availability, it would be worthwhile checking the website regularly for updates. I also have a another couple of girls due in season over the next few weeks who will also hopefully be mated. Watch this space!

On a more positive note, I’ve had some amazing Cockapoo puppies over the past few months. The puppies have been delightful and unlike my Cavaliers, my Cocker girls have had relatively large litters.  Congratulations to all the families who have taken puppies, I wish you all the very best with them and look forward to lots of photos in the future. It will be October time before I have F1 Cockapoo puppies ready to go home. I have puppies planned and will hopefully confirm pregnancies mid/late July which is when the waiting list will reopen. I expect mainly chocolate puppies with the possibility of black and cream too.

Always remember that getting a quality puppy is well forth waiting for. You will most likely always have to wait for a puppy from a reputable breeder. Even if this means waiting a few months longer than you anticipate, for something which is hopefully is going to be part of your family for over a decade, this really is a small price to pay and it will certainly be well worth it! :)
