About Us and our Cockapoos
About Carolina Cockapoos
Carolina Cockapoos is a small Cockapoo kennel dedicated to breeding only Cockapoos !
We are retired and our home is in Gastonia,NC 704-866-4085 which is next to Charlotte,NC and we breed both Toy and the Mini size Cockapoos.
Cockapoos are a hybrid breed, a poodle mixed with a cocker spaniel. We raise only 3rd & 4th generation Cockapoos , We start with parents that are temperamentally sound, healthy and beautiful, In addition, we have all of our parents tested for Cerf which is the Eyes, Patellas which is their rear knees as well as Pra-Prcd which causes blindness because our belief is if you start with healthy parents you end with healthy puppies.
We prefer to stay small only having 4/5 litters each year so we can give them lots of attention as they are very affectionate creatures !
All of our babies are born in our home and at 4 wks old are moved to the nursery which is in the downstairs of our home and consists of 2 rooms with large crates attached to doggie runs so their moms can begin to teach them skills such as eating drinking and how to use the doggie door to go out to potty. By the time your Cockapoo puppy goes home with you he or she is basically doggy door trained and this should help to cut your potty training time !
All puppies come to you with extensive socialization skills as we have several granchildren that love to visit grandma’s house just to play with them and this is very important especially if you have children in the home also i spend a lot of time daily playing/socializating with them as we never get to old to play with puppies !
We also offer boarding for $10 per day if you can’t pick up your puppy on the designated day and this includes any vaccines or wormings if due while your puppy is in our care.
Puppies come with a record of their vaccines & wormings, a 1 year written health and genetic guarantee as well a spay & neuter contract and a copy of their AmericanCockapoo Registration papers.
Also we had a apricot toy size girl named Little Rascal featured in the Dog Fancy magazine for Nov issue on page 8 – we are very proud of her !!! also we have had many go on to be therapy dogs in nursing homes and schools and hospitals.
We will gladly provide you with our vets name and phone number as well as references.
Cockapoos have been around since the sixties and become popular because they are so outgoing loving intelligent sweet natured creatures and the fact that they shed very little which is great for those with allergies. The resulting personality is unique in their ability to relate to people and children. They are famous for being affectionate open and friendly eager to please as well as easily trained they also have longevity.
