Our breeding program began as a homeschool project for our daughters. It was a hands-on approach to learning science (biology/ animal husbandry), writing (record keeping), and math (finances/ money), as well as teaching responsibility and the value of hard work. After raising our first litter and having such an amazing experience, we decided to do it again. And over time, our simple homeschool project evolved into our current breeding program.
As we cultivated our program, we recognized the lack of breed standards and developed lineages among Cockapoos across the United States even though the breed has been around since the 1960’s. So, we decided to focus our program on modeling the highest breed standards and developing the lineages, with the goal of transforming the Cockapoo from a hybrid breed to an AKC recognized breed.
