Welcome Lovers of Loyalty, Friendship & Endless Tail Wags!

End Sept 13 115*News* We are waiting for one of our girls to go into heat so we can have some fall/winter puppies

Eden Orchards

I am a small scale breeder of American Cockapoo puppies for sale as service, therapy & family pets. These guys are all-around wonderful animals for the average family, those wanting to do therapy work (either paid or volunteer) and those in need of a smaller-sized service dog. Cockapoos make excellent Rally dogs for the novice and a great obedience or agility dog for the casual competitor or an older child getting into that wonderful hobby. What is the Eden dog difference? Quality breeding is a science tempered with art. Here at Eden Orchards we understand the art of developing quality lines that produce puppies that are healthy and true to type. We DNA test our dogs to eradicate health concerns and give our families 100% assurance that they have fallen in love with a puppy that has the best assurances of health and sound temperament possible. I am dedicated to the improvement of this breed and our puppies are the result of dedication and extremely careful breeding.

If you’d like to know more about my breeding program or apply for one of my puppies please visit my website at AmericanCockapoo.com

Having spent the better part of two decades training dogs (volunteer work and hobby) I have decided to post a blog about all our wonderful dog adventures here at Eden Orchards. 

This blog also gives information about the proper health, grooming, nutrition and maintenance of your dog.  The vast majority of the information on this site is applicable to most dog breeds, and the purpose of this site is to help educate and inform dog owners so they can get the most out of their best friend(s). There is also specific information on my specialty, the American Cockapoo.

Your Dog

I give a lot of general dog advice intended for the average pet owner. Please always refer to your dog’s specific breed and your dog’s breeder. All dogs are individuals, just as we are. You know your dog best so listen to yourself, too.

Final Thought

Please enjoy this site and use it as a tool to help you better understand your pup. The better trained your dog is, the happier and more enjoyable the human-dog relationship.

Pets can be wonderful for your health when they are properly trained to your individual tastes. And training is not as hard as you might think!

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to email me: edenorchards@gmail.com  I’m here to help! If you have any tips of your own I’d love to hear them, as well. I’m continually learning new things. I don’t post often, as things are very busy here at the homestead, but I do try. Thanks for stopping by🙂

  1. I found your blog on an internet site and was impressed with what you wrote. I am looking for a breeder in Washington state or Oregon. I could tell where you are located.
    I am possibly looking for the spring – early or late; just a good time to play and yes the puppy to go outside.

  2. Hello,

    I’m new at this whole thing so I just wanted to ask some questions. I read a lot on your site about the cockapoo. My family and I have been discussing getting a dog for about a year now and since the fall have been leaning towards the cockapoo. We have met and played with one at a local park a couple times and we loved her. When I talked to the owner she was saying the same things you are about their traits. I know very little very little about the process such as time frame, qualifications, and cost. Any information you could give would be wonderful. Thanks for your time.


  3. I’m looking for a golden brown cockapoo boy. Possibly service dog I have a child with Epilepsy. Can I get more info?

  4. My name is Amber Flora, and I’ve previously owned miniature schnauzers. As my 2 older dogs have just recently passed away, I am looking to get one female Cockapoo (20 lbs about) around Christmas of 2018 for my son, myself and my husband. Both hubby and son have slight asthma and dog allergy, so it’s very important to have the poodle characteristics for low dander/low shedding. I’d like to wait until 2018 as my son will be around 6 years old then and his lungs will be larger and able to handle any inflammation due to allergy than they currently do. I have experience in genetics, and I’m very keen to get an F2 or F3 animal which is something you seem to be in support of and I was relieved to see that! . I’m very interested in your dogs but I live in Colorado! Can you help me with finding other breeders who have your values that might be nearer? Any help is appreciated. And thank you for being a quality breeder in the states!

    • Hi Amber,
      Unfortunately I do not know any breeders in Colorado at this time. In fact I’m not sure there really are that many cockapoo breeders in the country that follow with the considerations I do. I know of about 4 breeders that are fabulous and would be happy to discuss if you’d like. Though none in your state😦 I’ve been slow in email as of late but catching up if you want to email at edenorchards@gmail.com

      There is always the option of flying to get a puppy. I have homed many, many puppies in far-away states this way. It doesn’t cost much extra. About $400 and it is far better than cargo-shipping a puppy.
      Essentially you fly out one morning, meet the breeder at the airport with your puppy, spend some time going over stuff and then fly home with your puppy.

      Your puppy gets to go on board the plane, in the cabin with you. She goes under the seat in front of you. This is vastly superior to the “cargo” shipping of pets in the US. I am not vocally against cargo shipping but it is definitely far better to meet with your breeder in person.

      I just can’t imagine sending off a puppy without seeing someone in person and spending that hour plus going over things, handing over their information binder and going through training stuff… etc.

      But shipping is not “out of the question” either. Agai

      • Annette I did buy an airline approved dog carrier for under the seat, and have been putting the family’s “slightly sweaty” clothes into it for scent. I’m chomping at the bit here, but my husband says 2018. And laughs good naturedly at the carrier in our clothes closet. He keeps me balanced in waiting for Paul’s lungs to get bigger (4 yrs old this Oct) and my desire for a family dog (which I’ve always had). I still am pretty sad about loosing my two dogs in the last year, so perhaps my heart needs time too. Please put me on your wait list for summer-winter litters 2018. I’d really love to purchase from you. Oz sounds good too, but flights to Kentucky appear to have connections and can be as long as flights to New Jersey. Want our girl to have a direct flight home. I like that you tend towards under 40 lbs for mature dogs. Am I right on that? Hope all is well there, have been praying for you all. You seem so dedicated to these babies. I love that! Hurts my heart when I think of your “toughie” son and his cow puppy. Risky, this love business. Particularly with our kids. Amber


      • Chomping at the bit🙂 I’ll be here for you when you’re ready for your baby! When you pick your puppy you can send me a pillow case. You’ll all take turns sleeping on it and it’ll smell really like your house and you guys just from being in a linen cabinet or closet. So buy a cheap pillow case now and fold it up and stick it in a closet somewhere🙂
        Then when you select your puppy a few weeks before pick up you’ll send me the pillow case. I will give your baby the pillow case when she/he is snuggling with Mama those last few weeks and while sleeping at night. And your puppy will “know” you before you get here. And will associate you with mommy. This actually really does make a difference too or I wouldn’t spend the time on it. Totally worth the extra effort.

        My puppies, so far, have never been more than about 22 pounds. I have litters that are much smaller in the 14-17 pound range and then taller and sturdier dogs in the 18-22 pound range. Depends on Mommy and Daddy. For kiddos it is definitely a good idea to stick in the 22 and under range. That way they can’t really knock anyone over or cause damage with the sweep of an excited tail over a coffee table. LOL

        I’m sad for your losses too. It is always hard to lose our babies. Old and ready to go to Heaven or not. Our dogs are our friends!

        Thank you for your comment regarding my son and his little Cow Puppy. That was a big punch to the stomach for me for sure. He is such a sweet little boy and has had a very tough year, too. And he loved that dog as much as any little boy could ever love a dog. A boy and his puppy… fodder for every Disney movie on the planet. And these two were peas in a pod. I will miss seeing them climb through the “woods” behind our house and run in the grass and him convincing Cow to go down the slide (she would too). It is a sad world when little boys lose their puppies😦 Love is a risky business for sure.

        I’m glad you’re being smart about looking for a good breeder! That is the best way to ensure your son gets bonded to a dog with the best possible health and temperament! In the meantime read the book or watch the video by Dr. Sophia Yin “Perfect Puppy in 7 Days” Its a worthwhile watch/read.

      • Thanks for your response. I’ll keep an eye on your puppies and let you know when we are ready. All the best from my family to yours! Amber

      • You got it🙂
        And no matter where you get your baby from pop in from time to time to say “hi” and remember I’m totally here for you if you have questions. Especially when I’m not going crazy trying to hold down the fort here. Haha. But typically I’m around to help if you need it. No matter where you get your cockapoo. I mean that, really truly.
