PUPPY AVAILABILITY 3 October 2021 UPDATE
Poppy and Lexi have safely delivered their puppies. I do have a waiting list up and running and there will be some availability for F1 puppies, probably male as Lexi had 6 boys and only one female puppy!) Once first viewings have taken place I will provide a further update, but in the meantime please do contact me to registered your interest if you are looking and ready for a puppy in November.
After much consideration I have set my price for puppies at £3,000. This is a slight reduction on my previous litter. There are many litters advertised online more cheaply (mostly from unlicensed breeders) but I am licensed with my local authority with a 5 Star standard. My puppies are born and raised in the home with every care and attention and properly socialised. BOTH parents are extensively DNA tested for conditions found in their respective breeds.
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:
- Initial contact by email 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.
- I will then send you a short form to complete and send back via email.
- I will then update you once puppies are born
- Visits will take place once puppies are around a month old.
- Photo and video updates will be provided via Whatsapp to families on the waiting list through the litter’s first 8 weeks
- 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 hypoallergenic.
Puppies will be health checked and microchipped by our vet before leaving.
We do not always vaccinate as this often causes problems when the vaccine used is not available in the puppy’s new vet surgery, but our mothers are vaccinated to give the puppies the protection they need through the milk until they have their first vaccinations at around 8 weeks old. They can have their first vaccination at their health check appointment if their new owners wish it.
