Welcome to Lorton Cockapoos…

We are a family run dog breeding establishment. Between us we have over 50 years of quality experience. We are a well established and reputable breeder and through the many years of breeding we have a wealth of knowledge and experiences that we love to share with you. We can therefore offer plenty of advice and support to help you find your new family member as well as to support you when you take your new addition home.

We specifically focus on three types of cross breeds. These are Cockapoos (Cocker spaniel x Poodle), Cavapoos (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel x Poodle) and Schnoodles (Schnauzer x Poodle). However we occasionally have other breeds available such as pedigree Cavalier King Charles Spaniels (CKCS) when we want to add a girl to our breeding program.

We have chosen these three breeds for their temperament, health, hypoallergenic coats and because we believe these breeds fit into a lot of peoples’ family lifestyles today.

 

Our Setup…

We are a fully licensed and regularly inspected kennels. Our dogs are raised in a safe, clean and warm kenneled environment with lots of attention, cuddles, toys and treats too! We have plenty of space including acres of fields for our boys and girls to explore and exercise in. Our puppies are born in our home around our family in quality whelping pens. These are extremely clean, warm and safe for our puppies to ensure they have the best start to life possible as well as keeping their mummy comfortable too. Being born in our home ensures that we can keep a close eye on the nursing mum and her puppies as well as making sure they are well socialised, handled and get used to the general noises of a day to day household.

Our breeding program… 

We have a few simple aims in our breeding program. These are health, temperament and quality. We are forever aiming to produce puppies that meet our aims and always working towards continually improving our breeding program. Initially this starts with our dogs both male and female. We spend a lot of time researching our breeds and ensuring that we select only the best dogs to breed from. Only then will we consider breeding from them and we breed them to a suitable partner. Even after a pair are mated and have had their puppies we still evaluate their puppies against our aims to decide weather we plan for a repeat mating, a mating to another stud or to not mate again.

 

All our boys and girls spend a lot of time with us and receive basic obedience training, lots of play and cuddle time and of course anything extra they may need such as grooming and vet visits. We believe that this is key to breeding only the best puppies.

 

What we need from you…

Any breeder who cares about their puppies will spend hours communicating with families that are potentially interested in homing a puppy. We aim to provide a personal experience for you as it is a big decision to make and you need to feel comfortable talking to your chosen breeder. Therefore we like to ensure all emails are responded to on a 1:1 basis and not send automated responses. What we would like in return is for anyone who is interested in one of our puppies, is to get in touch and be prepared to provide enough information about the home you can offer. It is important for us to know this information, as we do not home our puppies with just anyone. We have turned people away in the past and will continue to do so as we will only home our puppies with those that are 100% suitable. We are assessing homes for our puppies so if you feel you can provide a suitable home and perhaps want a bit more advice on which breed to choose then please contact us and we will be happy to help.
