Cottage Country Cockapoos was established in 2020 and is located just north of beautiful Muskoka, where we have called home for the past 20 years. My husband and I decided to take on this new venture of combining our love of Cockapoos and our desire to become suburban farmers. We are breeding Cockapoo dogs as well as Scottish Fold cats and consider our tiny farm an amazing opportunity and how we define "living our best lives". Our first Cockapoo Millie made it to 13 years old and she taught us about the breed and we literally fell in love with her. All of our Cockapoos were carefully selected to ensure excellent breeding, health and lineage. Our dogs share our large two storey home in rural Burks Falls, Ontario. We have 50 acres of forested land, ponds and have added an orchard. Our dogs enjoy a great deal of attention, exercise and play from myself, my husband and our teenage daughters. Our dogs are our pride and joy, each with its own loving, quirky and adorable personality. Our dogs are hand raised and literally part of our family. Cockapoos are highly intelligent, hypoallergenic and hearty enough to tolerate all four seasons in Ontario with ease. Cockapoos are very loving and connect with their families deeply. If this kind of dog sounds like a good fit for your family, it will be our pleasure to connect and match you with one of our precious pups. Thank you for visiting, please do not hesitate to contact us and we look forward to meeting you! Sincerely,
Kevin & Lori

In late 2022 we completed genetic testing on all of our breeding stock utilizing Embark.com. DNA analysis was obtained about each animal's breed, characteristics and health traits. This was not as popular or an expectation when we started out breeding in 2020, but as the leading cockapoo breeders in the province of Ontario emerge, this has become a necessity to ensure our actions are both ethical and appropriate for the health of our dogs and puppies.
All off our dogs had very positive results, with no underlying medical conditions, and clear eyes, ears, hips, skeletal issues and overall health. We may adjust some pairings of our dogs to select the best matches for colouring, size and coats desired.
2 YEAR HEALTH GUARANTEE
Cottage Country Cockapoos will provide a two year health guarantee, expiring on the dog's second birthday. This guarantee gives consideration to any hereditary or genetic condition diagnosed by a licensed Veterinarian. We reserve the right to ask for a second opinion to confirm the concern. Full refund will be provided.
Once a pup has been reserved, our customers will be given the option of having their baby microchipped. This will be completed by us when the baby is 6 - 8 week of age. Initially our Veterinarian has been assisting as we learn the appropriate techniques. Cottage Country Cockapoo fee for microchip and insertion is $25.
Families will then be given the microchip codes and will need to register themselves at their own cost once their pups are home.
Recommended site: M4S Microchip Solutions, one time fee, lifetime support. Expected cost for registration is about $50.

In 2022, we partnered with Trupanion Pet Insurance and are now able to provide 30 days of insurance commencing the day you bring your puppy home. Families need to register within 24 hours of bringing baby home and can review what services are provided.
Families can work independently with Trupanion Insurance and decide if they want to enrol in further coverage beyond the initial 30 day coverage. With the rising costs of veterinarian care, this should be thoroughly considered.

If a customer needs to return / surrender their puppy, please understand we take this very seriously and personally as these babies are live animals who deserve dignity and respect. There are very limited circumstances to which this may be requested, so please appreciate this would be a last resort.
*UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE MAY A CUSTOMER ATTEMPT TO RE-SELL OR RE-HOME A PUPPY PURCHASED FROM OUR KENNELS.
Cottage Country Cockapoos will take possession of the pup and ensure any required veterinarian care is provided and assess the puppy for adoption appropriateness after being surrendered. No puppies will be re-sold under any circumstance after a return / surrender, but we will work to find a loving and appropriate adoptive family with no fee exchanged.
We have been married for almost 25 years and have two amazing and wonderful teenage daughters, one of which is off to University. We have many friends and family that enrich our lives but are mostly quiet homebodies who enjoy nature and animals. Kev works full-time outside of the home, and I work full-time in the home allowing us to keep things running smoothly most of the time :). We adore cockapoos, as well as several other breeds, with Bernese Mountain Dogs being another favourite. We are into hiking, building, gardening, planting, growing, farming, sustainable living etc. We spoil our cockapoos, treating them like babies and enjoy all the fun of breeding. I am a second generation Breeder, as my father was a member of the Canadian Kennel Club breeding Rottweilers and Boxers throughout my childhood. We are having fun and enjoying this crazy ride and hope to for many more years!
Julie & Leo are a husband and wife team with grown adult children, a giant extended local family and a very sweet grandchild, all of whom visit often. They live in the town of Huntsville in a quaint bungalow on a large town lot which includes forest, beautiful gardens, tons of decking and outdoor living as well as an above ground pool. This couple are very close friends of ours and have been loving on cocker spaniels and cockapoos for years! Julie and Leo are excellent dog parents, with much time and attention being provided to their fur babies. Leo has been known to sport many pairs of pajama pants and model for pics and is lovingly known as "the Puppy Whisperer". This great pair have Stormie and Toffee from our breeding program as well as good boy (neutered) Fergus in their cockapoo gang.
Nana Deb (AKA my mom) and Grandpa Chris are avid cockapoo lovers and have devoted much of their time and attention in lovingly raising up their cockapoo gang. With retirement and semi-retirement upon them, they enjoy meeting the day to day needs of their dogs and watching them grow and develop. Nana and Grandpa live in the tiny Village of Burks Falls in a residential area in a newly remodelled home with a very large in town lot in the backyard. Nana and Grandpa have Willow, Sassy, Biscuit and Max from our breeding program as well as many Scottish Fold cats.
Amy Lynn & Joel are close friends of our family and have fallen in love with the cockapoo breed and anticipated fun of whelping litters / raising babies. It comes as no surprise as they have a lovely large family with 6 children ranging in age from 8-14 years old. The family resides in a beautiful residential area on the outskirts of Huntsville, on a large acred lot. They have numerous gardens, fruit trees, chickens, ducks, play equipment, trampoline, hot tub and above ground pool to keep everyone busy and having fun. Amy Lynn is very experienced and self taught in farming and whelping, so is a natural in handling the pups with ease all the while managing her household. Joel is her biggest fan and support, working virtually full-time and available at the ready. Many of their children are also animal enthusiasts, watching and learning and even assisting with our Open Houses and farm chores. This family is a gem!
At three to four weeks of age we begin providing our puppies formula. Soon meat is added to the formula and lastly soaked kibbles are added to make gruel or puppy slop. Pups are fed twice per day, morning and suppertime and mama will nurse babies as she desires. Puppies by 6 weeks of age will have their primary source of food being kibble and meat.
We have tried many forms and brands of food for our pups and have recently changed to Fromm Puppy Kibble and Fromm canned meat, specifically chicken and duck pate. We also recommend Acana brand food as well as Iams. Cockapoos are known for having food sensitivities so if concerned, reducing chicken and beef products is recommended. Duck, Turkey and Lamb are wonderful alternatives.
We use a combination of Fromm Kibble and Raw food. We prefer Big Country Raw brand which is available at many pet food stores as well as online. Organic pumpkin, salmon and other raw treats are also excellent for nursing and pregnant mamas.
If you would like to change your puppies food, please mix with new food at a 50:50 ratio for at least one week to ensure their tummies can manage the change. It is also important to be careful about "treats". When puppies are young and potty training, hand feeding their kibble in lieu of cookies is preferable to avoid unwanted issues.
