Reputable Cockapoo Breeders UK
One of the key challenges facing any responsible person searching for a ethical Cockapoo breeders UK is deciding who to buy your dog from?
And one of the most common questions asked is “How do I know they’re a good breeder?” Below is a short slide show covering the main pitfalls of buying a Cockapoo puppy and how not to get caught out.
Puppy Mill breeders are advertising on all the usual websites but be vigilant to avoid scams.
As a prospective dog owner understanding the science of dog breeding helps you not fall for a puppy scammer and will also help lessen demand for these poor dogs.
The following is an extract from Professor Bateson writing for the Dog Advisory Council (DAC)
the manner in which dogs are bred and reared has far-reaching effects not only on individual dogs but on whole populations of dogs. Their physical characteristics (colour, size, shape) are largely established by their inherited genetic material and, to some extent, by their upbringing. Both specific inherited diseases and conformation are inherited and so the selection of genetically healthy breeding stock is essential. The temperament of dogs also has a genetic component, but is also strongly influenced by early environment and therefore how dogs are treated in the first weeks of their lives has a profound effect on behavior throughout life. These issues are as relevant for mixed-breed, cross-bred or so-called designer dogs as they are for pedigree dogs and so this Breeding Standard applies to all and every type of dog.
The official Cockapoo breed club (CCGB) offers mentoring for novice breeders and they can be contacted through the CCGB website.
