PUPPY AVAILABILITY AS AT AUGUST 2020
Three of our girls, Caoimhe, Lexi and Poppy have all been successfully mated but not confirmed in whelp yet. We have a scan date of early September to confirm whether they are indeed expecting the patter of tiny paws! Caoimhe has been mated with Teddy and Jesse with Lexi. Full details of all parent dogs are on the “Our Boys and Girls” page.
Preference will be given to those already on our “list of interest” for 2020 for the two F1 litters, but there may be some availability. Please note Caoimhe and Lexi are cocker spaniels and will be expecting F1 litters and Poppy, our beautiful Apricot cockapoo bred here from Sansa and Jesse will be having F1b puppies. She has been mated with a toy Cockapoo with clear DNA test results. Her puppies may mature a little smaller if they take the size of the sire.
Price for all puppies will be set according to the market at the time, probably around £3,000.
The process for those wishing to welcome a Redkite puppy into their home is as follows:
Once a litter is confirmed expected – so please wait for confirmation
- Please telephone for a quick chat. I will not be accepting applications for the list via message or email.
- I will then send you a short form to complete with your contact details, family background etc.
- I will then update you once puppies are born
Before calling, 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.
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. I am not prepared to sell them for less than puppies from unlicensed breeders with far lower standards and expenses than I have, and in many cases, using parent dogs with little or no DNA testing or KC papers.
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.
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE Due to lockdown easing we are now able to conduct socially distanced visits in our garden, weather permitting, with plenty of hand sanitiser at the ready! Puppies will still be health checked and microchipped by our vet before leaving. Collections of puppies will be contactless with social distancing in place.
