PUPPY AVAILABILITY  11 April  2022 UPDATE

Puppies are here!

We will have two, possibly three puppies available. 

These puppies will be ready the first week of June so please make sure this works for you before applying.

Local families preferred and those not already on multiple waiting lists with other breeders please!

The process for those wishing to welcome a Redkite puppy into their home is as follows:

Once a litter is confirmed expected on the website or Facebook page:

  1.  Initial contact by email or phone rather than text message please, with some details about your family background, work commitments etc and the kind of home you are able to offer a Redkite puppy would be helpful.  I do like to speak to people on the telephone before arranging visits.
  2.  I will then send you a short form to complete and send back via email.  Please note that if you do not send back this form, you are not on the waiting list.
  3.  I will then update you once puppies are born
  4. Visits will take place once puppies are around a month old.
  5. Photo and video updates will be provided via Whatsapp to families on the waiting list through the litter’s first 8 weeks
  6. No deposits are required until viewing.

Before making contact please read the notes below.

Details of family background, ages of children, work hours and patterns will be required.    We do not home puppies to full time workers.  There MUST be someone at home most of the day to care for a puppy and that person should be willing to engage with this.  The family member undertaking the care and training of the puppy must come to view please.    Our puppies are homed as pet dogs and not for breeding or assistance work. It takes a great deal of expertise and time to train an assistance dog and it is not fair to expect a young puppy to assume that role.

We are wary of homing puppies to families with children under 5 except to experienced dog owners, where there is already a dog in the family and the children are familiar with dogs and confident around them.  However, some families cope better than others and it is up for discussion!

Please note that whilst Cockapoos are often low to non shedding, there is no guarantee of this.  Therefore if you have allergies it is best to test these beforehand with contact with dogs with similar coat types.  If you do have mild allergies an F1b puppy would be more likely to suit, but there is no guarantee that any Cockapoo is completely hypoallergenic.

Puppies will  be health checked and microchipped by our vet before leaving. At this appointment they will also have their first vaccination.
