PUPPY AVAILABILITY 1 February 2021 UPDATE
I am not yet holding a list for further litters in 2021 . It is getting difficult to respond to the volume of messages I am receiving. Until I have another of my girls confirmed in whelp there is no waiting list to join.
DUE TO THE VOLUME OF ENQUIRIES I HAVE CLOSED APPLICATIONS FOR THE TIME BEING
After much consideration I have set my price for puppies at £3,250. There are too many litters advertised online at over £3,500 (mostly from unlicensed breeders) for me to set my price any lower. This is subject to change either way for future litters depending on the current market.
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 socialised according to The Puppy Plan.
It has been noted sadly that due to demand for puppies currently some are quickly being resold on the internet for higher prices. Our prices must be such that this does not happen. If it is necessary to rehome Redkite puppies they MUST be rehomed via us as per our contract of sale.
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. 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 unless by arrangement with a qualified trainer.
We no longer home 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.
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.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE Due to lockdown restrictions we are unable to have visitors at the moment. Hopefully by the time we have puppies ready to view, this situation will have eased. We can conduct virtual visits if required via Zoom, WhatsApp or Facetime but we would much prefer to meet our puppies’ families in person! 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 ALL vaccinated up to date to give the puppies the protection they need through the milk until they have their first vaccinations at around 8 weeks.
