Amber – F1 Cavapoo
Amber is the best addition to our little family!!! Lots of fun filled times and a cheeky little pup!!!
As I am allergic to dogs we did a lot of research before buying a puppy. Amber does not shed at all and I am not allergic to her!!! I would recommend a Cavapoo to anyone who is allergic.
We would highly recommend Yvonne to buy a puppy off and the aftercare is fab too.
Thanks lorton cockapoos xx
Pippin – F1 Schnoodle
Buying a puppy can be quite a daunting experience and finding a breeder that you feel you can trust is essential.
We had been wanting a poo pup for a long time and immediately felt comfortable with Yvonne and her Schnoodle recommendation. All my questions were answered quickly and after we reserved a puppy we were given updated pictures and invited to meet her at 5 weeks.
It was a further 3 long weeks before we could collect our little Pippin and now she’s been with us 2 weeks and we are so happy with our choice.
She’s such a happy little girl, very intelligent and so affectionate, she’s settled in really quickly and is now one of the family. Being able to meet her parents and knowing that she is PRA clear and healthy was very reassuring, I would recommend Lorton’s to anyone looking for pup.
We were really happy with all the little goodies she came with, especially her blanket and teddy, she takes them everywhere with her!
Fudge – F1 Cockapoo
I was looking for a really good cockapoo breeder, and I searched high and low for one then I came across Lorton Cockapoos website.
Yvonne was so helpful with any questions that I needed to ask, and let me know when fudge was first born I was so excited and couldn’t wait to meet him.
Yvonne always sent me wonderful pictures of him and kept me up to date on how he was doing.
I got to visit him at 5 weeks old and I knew when I first looked at him which one was for me I picked him up in my arms and he snuggled into me :).
When it came to pick him up I was given loads of advice and a goody bag.
Fudge is the most loveable dog ever everyone wants to know where I got him from when they see him. He picks up training really quickly, and loves to play and run around like a nutter with other dogs, but also loves to snuggle on the sofa I don’t know what I would do without fudge in my life now.
Lortons are always available to answer any question even after I got fudge.
Even thinking about getting a second cockapoo as they are so loving and good natured.
Thank you so much xx

Roxy – F1 Cockapoo
So here is our Roxy, she is now just over 7 months old and a true pleasure to have in our lives.
We have never had a dog before as a family and with two young children we were quite nervous about choosing the right dog for us. Yvonne right from the start was supportive and patient!
She helped us work out the personality of dog we needed to fit with our family. Once we had decided on roxy it was great to see regular photos on Facebook seeing her change and grow. On the day we collected her we were so excited and Yvonne gave us a goodie bag full of useful things, toys, food but more importantly to us advice and the promise of advice anytime we needed it.
Roxy has developed into a beautiful, fun but yet chilled out wonderful companion for us all who gets admired everywhere we go and as my son would say she is awesome and so are Lortons!
Thanks Yvonne xx
Cookie – F1 Cockapoo
After losing our dog 10 years ago I didn’t think I wanted another but after seeing a Cockapoo I started to change my mind. Not knowing anything about the breed I impulsively sat on the internet, making phone calls and arrangements to view them. I hadn’t realised how wrong that was until my friend, a top judge at Crufts told me off!!! I took advice and researched all the information and was so pleased to find LORTON COCKAPOO’S!! Everything I had been advised was here. I was so excited I phoned them.
Now we have a beautiful little cockapoo called ‘Cookie’ who has filled the family with love and cheekiness!! She is perfect and so was Yvonne at Lorton Cockapoos. I was sent regular pictures of her before collection, advice was and still is amazing, very supportive. She got a goody bag, PRA check, microchipped, wormed and flead, along with sheets of advice and pet insurance for a month. I was so pleased. I highly would recommend anybody to contact Lorton Cockapoos if they are looking for a puppy xx We viewed mum and dad as well xxx perfect!!!!!!!
Our Cookie is full of fun, and very clever! She is learning so quick and has boosted my little boys confidence!! Our perfect little dog has completed our family xxx She looks like a fluffy little lamb and is used to being showered thanks to Yvonne getting her used to them prior.
I see other Cockapoo pups and find the owners are quite disappointed that they hadn’t researched the information and now don’t have dogs that look anything like a cockapoo! Also not good health x
Thank you Yvonne and of course Cookies mum and dad xxxxxx
Yogi – F1 Cockapoo
Would highly recommend anyone to Lorton Cockapoos.
Excellent breeders knowledge & Yvonne is always on hand if you’ve any queries after you’ve picked up your puppy.
We got Yogi in August he is now 9 months old & part of our family.
Tommie – F1 Cavapoo
Lorton cockapoos are fab!
Came to them on recommendation and from the minute we had decided on our Cavapoo right up to collection we had regular photos and even a video of our new puppy.
Information was plentiful and a really helpful collection pack with lots of goodies as well as all the important stuff.
He is 1 wk in his new home with us and we could not imagine life without little Tommie our Cavapoo boy.
Ozzy – F1B Cockapoo
Ozzy is the most beautiful dog inside and out. He is loving, easy to train, can be calm and also loves to play. He’s mischievous, cheeky and a joy to be around. In fact the groomer tells me he’s the most well behaved Cockapoo she grooms!
Yvonne breeds the most wonderful dogs and clearly cares about them. The whole process of picking Ozzy, visiting him and picking him up was so easy. I remember Yvonne told me when we picked Ozzy up that we wouldn’t get very far on our walks without somebody commenting on how handsome Ozzy was.
Well I can confirm Yvonne was right. Ozzy is admired wherever we go. I would highly recommend Yvonne and her pups to anyone looking to bring a new puppy into their family.
Thank you Yvonne for making our family complete.
The Kitson family.
Brigitte – F1B Cockapoo
Last year we chose our first Cockapoo puppy from Lorton.
We live a good seven hours journey from Yvonne and there were Cockapoos aplenty advertised locally to us but we did our research and decided to get our puppy from Lorton… here are the reasons why.
Yvonne had undertaken a responsible breeding programme to ensure pups would be PRA clear, and have the right temperament to be part of a family,she patiently answered all our questions and was more than happy to give advice.
When we arrived to collect our puppy we were pleased to be able to meet her parents,all her paperwork was in order, she had been insured, wormed, vaccinated & microchipped.
A large bag of food was provided along with a fantastic goodie bag (-:
Our puppy Brigitte is now almost 8 months old & is just a joy to have. She has a fantastic gentle nature, has been so easy to train & we wouldn’t be without her.
We hope to have another Lorton pup this year… highly recommend (-:
Winnie Widget – Yorkiepoo
Hope you are well and all is going well at Lorton Cockapoos. Sorry we haven’t been in touch with an update sooner on Winnie Widget, she has been keeping us busy!
A massive thank you for introducing Winnie to us – she is adorable and we love her so much. She has been to work with me every day since. My team absolutely love her too, she features in a news story too: read here
Attached is a pic of her in her Archery jumper, she loves coming there with me on Sundays. We are now in puppy training too and she is possibly the most hyper in the class but does her recall training well and is great with the other pups.
Once again a big thank you from Ben and I.
I’ll keep in touch,
Willow – Schnoodle
As anyone knows, it’s a massive decision to buy a puppy. It was ten years since we had owned a dog and having decided we wanted a schnoodle the next step was where to get one.
We did plenty of research online and Lorton Cockapoos stood out from the rest. We looked at all the comments and pictures of dogs and puppies on Facebook from people who had bought puppies from Yvonne, all of them saying what lovely natures their puppies/dogs had.
When I rang Yvonne, she was so helpful, knowledgeable and informative and obviously passionate about her dogs and puppies. After that conversation I knew that I would buy my puppy from Lorton Cockapoos.
It was a few months before the right puppy arrived (I wanted a female) and we were sent regular updates and pictures of her until it was time to collect her.
On collecting her, we were given all the paperwork for her (including the PRA test results for her father) she was health checked, micro chipped, insured, wormed and flead. She also came home with a bag of food and a fantastic goody bag!
Willow is an absolute joy to have, she has a lovely nature: she’s loveable, playful, funny, loves people, children and dogs. I also know that Yvonne is available for any advice should I need it.
All in all we couldn’t have asked for more.
Eric – F1 Cockapoo
We saw pictures of our first puppy after receiving an email announcing a new litter,very excited going to see him at 5 weeks,when arriving to pick Eric up we were given a written pack with helpful information about vaccinations etc,a great puppy pack microchip and free insurance & blanket etc,Eric still plays with the toys now,any help I needed in the first few days yvonne guided me,we still stay in touch updating pictures via Instagram & facebook. I would definitely recommend Lorton Cockapoos and have done too many people already.
Oscar – F1 Cockapoo
Yvonne was always on hand with advice before & after we took our beautiful puppy home & Oscar has turned into a very handsome chap, but the best thing is his fun, friendly & happy personality which shows he was given a great start in life at Lorton Cockapoos.
Molly and Rosie – F1 Cavapoo & Cockapoo
When searching for our perfect dog we came across Lorton Cockapoos website. We had decided on a poodle cross and the puppies shown on the site fitted the bill perfectly. We contacted Yvonne who was extremely helpful and supportive. Then began the long wait for our puppy to be born. During this time we made lots and lots of contact and Yvonne was extremely patient and helpful with our endless questions. Throughout the whole process we couldn’t have asked for more, and we were blessed with the perfect cavapoo Molly. We were so pleased with her and how she fitted into our lives that we went back six months later and got a cockapoo Rosie. Our family now complete, a big thanks to Yvonne for her on-going support and interest and for two perfect little girls.
Molly – F1 Cockapoo
I would highly recommend the services of Yvonne at Lorton Cockapoos, her approach to our requirements when searching for a new puppy and member of our family were of a very high and personal standard.
They were very helpful in relation to our questions and assistance when picking our new puppy , they covered all aspects in relation to , birth , parenthood , health & wellbeing of their dogs , unlike high street breeders.
They also provided full puppy pack information , health / PRA certification and after care service.
We were also made welcome and made a visit to their home prior to choosing and meeting the parents of our new puppy.
Freya – F1 Cockapoo
It has been three weeks now since our purchase of our cockapoo girl Freya, from Lorton Cockapoos!
And what a delight she is! She has brought so much joy to our lives unimaginable! We waited a while and after many ups and downs we approached Lorton cockapoos and how grateful we are for doing so. From the onset of our enquiry we were taken seriously with a degree of professionalism, friendliness and honesty. Once we chose our puppy we were kept in the loop with weekly updates of her development with pictures and any questions or queries answered promptly. Meeting Yvonne was a pleasure and from the onset you can tell of their true love for animals and their pets and evidently being looked after with true love and commitment. Seeing both parents temperament did not go unnoticed and this is reflected in Freya. She is an intelligent pup that is learning fast and so loving adored by all she comes into contact with! We believe that Freya is not only a result of her parents and breed but also of the hard work that Yvonne has put into producing the most adorable pups! The puppy pack received was very well thought of and put together.
Would we recommend Yvonne at Lorton Cockapoos absolutely 100%! Very well done to you! xx
Ted – F1 Cockapoo
From the moment we contacted Lorton Cockapoos with potential interest to the moment we picked up our gorgeous 8 week old puppy ‘Ted’ we experienced nothing other than genuine care and compassion. It was obvious that all the puppies had started life in a loving, safe, clean and nurtured family environment. Every phonecall and email I sent was replied to quickly and professionally and we left assured that the aftercare advice and support would also be there should we need it. Couldn’t be happier with my choice of breeder and with our gorgeous furry family friend ‘Ted’.
Hattie – F1 Cockapoo
We have been both impressed and delighted with the whole experience of buying our gorgeous cockapoo, Hattie, from Lorton Cockapoos. From the time we chose her at 3 weeks old, to collecting her at 8 weeks, Yvonne kept us up to date with photos and emails. Queries were always answered quickly, regardless of the time of night I thought of a daft question! Hattie has been with us for three weeks now, as is proving to be every bit the dog we hoped for. She is bright, energetic and affectionate, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Lorton Cockapoos.
Mable – F1 Cavapoo
We are delighted with our Cavapoo puppy Mabel.
She is testimony to the loving care she received in her first weeks.
Peggy – F1 Cockapoo
I would highly recommend Lorton Cockapoos. Even from before we picked up Peggy, Yvonne was extremely helpful and was always willing to send us photos of our future doggy. When we took Peggy home she came with a little puppy pack which I thought was a lovely touch. Yvonne has always been quick to answer any query I’ve had and she couldn’t be more helpful. Peggy is such a loving dog and has an excellent temperament. Everyone comments on how lovely she is!! Thanks Yvonne!! We will certainly be back for another at some point.

Lola – F1 Schnoodle
We decided to introduce a dog after many years of talking about it. A friend of a friend had a schnoodle & there were many characteristics from this breed that were ticking all our boxes.
Lola came to us having been well socialised within Erica’s family home. After a few days she was bold, cheeky, confident and great with strangers & children alike.
Having never owned a dog before, it was good to know there was support on the end of a phone/email had I any questions (which I did do!!!)
We are thrilled with lola and now just looking forward to getting her vaccinations finished so we can get her out and about.

Very happy with our new puppy schnoodle from Lorton’s. He is sooo full of fun and we think he is wonderful. He has been well cared for before he came to us. Very happy with our beautiful puppy who is now 12 weeks old. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Lorton Cockapoos.

Harvey – F1 Schnoodle
When we decided to get a dog, we knew we had to get one that didn’t shed as both our children suffer with asthma.
After much research, we settled on a schnoodle as both the schnauzer and poodle are non-shedding.
From the moment Harvey was born, Yvonne sent us picture after picture and let us know of his progress.
When we met him at 5 weeks, we were in love. The next 3 weeks were endless but when we got our boy, he was so well socialised, we were pleased he had stayed where he was.
Nothing has ever fazed him and he is so quick to train. House training was achieved in under 2 weeks.
He is nearly 2 now and is full of fun with bags of energy – just the most wonderful dog.

Roxy – F1 Cavapoo
When we decided to get a puppy we spent a lot of time researching into breeds and breeders. Our search brought us initially to the Lorton Cockapoo website…..and the search for our puppy was done.
From the informative website, to the regular friendly communication we received, we felt the service was exactly what we needed as brand new pet owners. Weekly photos and updates on our chosen pup were a great way to get us all prepared for our new arrival. We were given great advice on care after collection and about our puppys individual personality. Also advice on how best to get her home as we were travelling quite a distance. A fully equipped puppy pack gave us a great start too. We collected our beautiful ruby f1 cavapoo Roxy at 10 weeks, microchipped and fully vaccinated. She is a lovely natured puppy who is fitting in lovely with our family and home.
This is testimony to her careful breeding and early weeks of life. Roxy is admired wherever she goes, and I have no hesitation in recommending Lorton Cockapoo as a breeder.
Many thanks, we may be back in the future for a brother for Roxy!!!🐾
Nicola and family.

Toffy – F1 Cavapoo
One year ago, we picked up Toffy with great excitement! This was the very first time we would own a dog….and what a great choice we made!
She adapted to her new environment very well and has become a very big part of our family. She is full of life, cheeky, funny in her own ways, loves cuddles, walks and playing with other dogs. And she has been very easy to train. We have absolutely fallen in love with Toffy and this breed in particular.
If you are looking for a Cavapoo don’t look any further. We would highly recommend Lorton Cockapoo’s to anyone. Every question we had prior to picking up Toffy were answered. We felt very well informed before we brought Toffy to her new home.
Mona and family
Barley – F1 Schnoodle
Barley is now one years old. From the day I had him at eight weeks old he has been an absolute joy to myself and everyone we meet. Yvonne and Erica at Lorton Kennels are always there if I have any concerns about Barley. He is obedient, playful and very mischievous and my very best buddie.
Carol in Guernsey
Daisy – F1 Cockapoo
A hello from Daisy our Lorton Cockapoo. She’s 14 weeks old now, bouncy, full of energy and is just an absolute joy! Going out for walks can be quite a challenge and time consuming though! Being so adorable she gets so much attention and lots (and lots) of people approaching us to ask what breed she is, if they can stroke her and even take her picture!
Thank you to Erica for all the advice, regular ‘pupdates’ and support provided when we were awaiting bringing Daisy home and when we collected her.
We cannot thank and recommend Lorton Cockapoos enough! Xx
Ralph – F1 Cockapoo
We were looking for a friendly, intelligent and loving dog so we knew a Cockapoo was the right breed to add to our family. We couldn’t have been more fortunate to stumble onto the Lorton Cockapoo website.
Erica has been amazing in helping answer all of our questions. The puppies are well looked after and you can tell that through the puppies temperament.
Ralph loves his belly rubs and cuddles and we could not be happier. For anyone considering a cockapoo, you will not be let down by Lorton Cockapoo’s.
Emma and family.
Bibbles – F1 Schnoodle
When considering to buy a puppy it is worrying whom you will get it from; but from the moment we contacted Lortons’ we knew we had found the right breeder.
There communication was brilliant and when we undertook our 5 week visit we were rest assured our puppy was being cared for before she came to us. We cannot thank lortons’ enough for our beautiful Bibble.
Thanks Yvonne and Erica for the pleasure of being able to have a lovely dog for our family. She will always be loved.
Lorraine, Mark and Aimee.

Rosie – F1 Cavapoo
When we started our search for a Cavapoo I was very keen to find a reputable breeder to get a healthy dog. Lortons filled me with 100% confidence as they do all the tests and they care very much about their dogs. Buying a dog is a huge commitment and Lortons made it very easy as they are very genuine.
Erica was very happy to answer any questions I had and made us feel welcome when we visited Rosie.
Rosie is very intelligent, easy to train and a very sweet nature!
Rosie has settled in very quickly!
I would highly recommend Lortons to everyone! Thank you so much to Erica for bringing our lovely Rosie to us, we cannot imagine life without her now.
Sarah and family
Hattie – F1 Cockapoo
We have had our puppy Hattie for just over two weeks now and couldn’t imagine life without her. Erica was so helpful from the minute I contacted her and kept me updated about Hattie until the day we picked her up. Lorton cockapoos have checked on her progress since she has been with us and answered any questions and given me all the advice I have needed. From the initial messages to the puppy pack she was sent home with Lorton cockapoos have gone above and beyond. Thank you very much for helping us find our Hattie!

Charlie – F1 Cockapoo
We got our cockapoo Charlie from Lorton Cockapoos 6 months ago and he quickly became a much loved part of our family. He is 8 months old now and loves to play. His favourite game is pulling the sheets off the washing line…!!
He is a happy, healthy dog and I am so pleased we took our time to find a breeder like Yvonne.
Jane and family
Dougie – F1 Cockapoo
We got Dougie 5 years ago from Lorton cockapoos. What a great experience and immediately got a new family member.
As first time dog owners myself and my family were looking for an experienced breeder. Lorton cockapoos were so helpful in giving us any advice we needed, especially as some of our family are allergic to dogs but have never had any issues around Tess.
Tess is now 17 months old and has such a lovely temperament. She is an exteamley clever pup and is great with other dogs.
I highly recommend cockapoos as a breed and we often get asked where we got Tess from and I always recommend Lorton Cockapoos!
Thank you for our lovely doggy x
We got our Cavapoo, Hector from Lorton Cockapoo about 2 years ago. What a great job you guys do. Some of our friends have bought pups from hobby breeders with disastrous results, so we do appreciate the care that’s taken by Lorton selecting the dogs to breed from.
On our first visit to Lorton, we “met” both Hector’s parents and found this very reassuring, we could also see Lorton took a lot of care for the welfare of its breeding dogs.
When the day came to collect Hector, hand over could not have gone better. We expected Hector to have some separation anxiety, but not a bit of it, the minute he got into our car, he just seemed “ready” for his new adventure.
From the get-go he loved being the centre of attention and I suspect this easy settling in, was in no small part due to Lorton “preparing the ground” for us.
The Cavapoo breed itself is just perfect as a family pet. House training went as well as could be expected. Hector has never put a foot wrong- never chews anything he shouldn’t, has never tried to escape or run away; barks only when he has to! He likes his walks and will happily come out with us trekking across the moors for a couple of hours, but he’s never demanding with it, and when its raining, well really he would prefer not to go out at all. He avoids getting dirty or muddy if he can help it – not for him a quick dip into nearest dirty pond.
He pretty much trained himself. For example he is great off the lead but we didnt train him to go off lead he just naturally took to it, always answering his call, never venturing more than a short distance from us and always dutifully coming back to us when the need arises.
We also love that he is small enough to pick up, makes life so convenient if there is something we don’t want him walking through.
Hector is completely none-shedding, and having previously had a dog that molted for England- we really value not having dog hair everywhere.
Hector is beyond affectionate and he has massively brightened our lives.
The two years we have had Hector have flown by and we cant thank you enough.
