Three generations ❤️
We have the most beautiful litter of Cockapoos- sired by the infamous Charlie the Russian Imported Show Cocker
These beautiful calm pups have an amazing temperament and will make perfect family pets ❤️
we only use Show cocker spaniels because their temperaments are much calmer than the Working Cockers. Also, the coats are much more curly and thicker which guarantees a teddy bear looking pup!
please message us for more details ❤️
The chaos behind this photo 🙈🤣
Those blue eyes 🥰
It’s cleaning time!
A few days before our pups are due to go to their forever home we bring them in from the outdoor nursery and crate train them. This helps them settle into their new routine. In the outdoor nursery they have so much room to run around and play so it’s an important step to crate train them before they go so they don’t give their new family too much of a shock!
They have settled quite well the last few nights- despite the few disturbances I’ve had 🙈🤣
I only train a few at a time so they get used to being with less of their litter hence why I always scatter the collection days.
Not only do we make the cutest pups, we also make happy ones 🥰
My lovely Mabel ❤️
So it’s not long now until the girls have their babies! We’re super excited here 😍
Just can’t wait to see what colours they will have! cox23
So we’re back from our mini break in Shropshire and the girls are sporting their new coats 🥰
Margot is super impressed as always 😂
Their jumpers are packed away in their winter wardrobe for now and these little waterproof numbers will be handy for any showers we have - dare I say it!
Who wants a Mabel? She is just divine isn’t she? 🥰
Reading this article left me in tears last night. I am fully aware it happens and always has but I do know that after lockdown it’s definitely because much much worse.
People often say to me ‘there are so many dogs needing homes, surely it’s better to rehome than breed more pups’
Now this is a very, very valid and genuine concern. I always advise people if they can rescue a puppy or dog then please, please do. But you have to go in with your eyes open and be realistic. What a puppy experiences in the first few weeks of their life (and even before) will have a lasting impact on their personality and behaviour. An abandoned puppy will be traumatised- they will not have experienced a good early start because let me tell you, any responsible, loving breeder will NOT abandon their pups to dogs homes. It is unthinkable. We bring these puppies into the world and will ensure they are loved and we cared for. I have never struggled to home a pup. I have never given one pup away for free- ever. If you can’t afford to buy one then you cannot afford to keep one-FACT.
Unfortunately these pups that are abandoned are usually from puppy farms, inexperienced breeders who want a quick buck then realise the work involved or tragically accidental litters.
Please rescue if you can as these poor little babies need a loving forever home. But you will need to put a lot of work in. I wouldn’t recommend it if you have young children, work full time or have a busy schedule. These pups need ‘therapy’ with experienced ones who know all about dogs and the psychology of them to help them heal.
This is why it is so hard to adopt from a dogs home. They know the best on what type of people can provide a loving, lasting home for these beautiful animals.
So to end on a positive note- remember animals are here to add happiness to our lives. They are desperate to please and love. So let’s breed responsibly by leaving it to the professionals and put an end to this awful plight.
Enjoy your day everyone-the weather is set to be great over the weekend! Plenty of exciting adventures to be had with your furry friends! 🥰🤩
The gorgeous Waffle unfortunately needs a new forever family
Unfortunately Olive isn’t taking to her and mum has tried for a few weeks now to try and break the barriers but it’s just not working 😩
Mum has decided to rehome Waffle and is really gutted. She will only let her go to the best of homes.
She is an apricot F1b Cockapoo and comes with parents paperwork. She is 4 and a half months old.
She has a lovely temperament and is very happy and playful.
PM us for more info x
Feeling the love ❤️
What a day! I have a HUGE glass of wine in hand while my baby girl Fleur is glued to my side 🥺🥰
So today I was on a walk with my babies and a HORRID off the lead dog attacked us! It was truly awful and I really was in fear of one of them being badly hurt or worse - I had four dogs with me and all 4 were set on by this dog.
Now I am not a prude when it comes to dogs being overly barky or trying to protect their owner or pack- mine can be a pain sometimes but this dog escaped from his house and literally ran straight at us and his intent was to harm us. I can honestly say I thought it was the end for Fleur and I felt utterly powerless 🥺
But thanks to some incredible people in our village who literally ran out of their house when they heard me screaming- they honestly saved us.
Morale to the story? Train your dogs or don’t have them!!!
It’s microchipping time!
All puppies have to be chipped in line with the The Microchipping of Dogs (England) Regulations 2015
This keeps them safe and easily reunited if lost from their owners. It’s also helps in reducing the chances of puppies being bred and sold by puppy farms/mills where the conditions for both mother and pups is absolutely horrendous.
All of our pups are lovingly raised with their mother and in the best environments with ample space and socialised daily. They are exposed to everyday noises to avoid pups being fearful of new situations which is a key sign to look out for when viewing pups. No pup should be fearful- they should be happy and content in their environment.
They also eat a high quality diet so tummy problems are not an issue with our pups.
Remember if you are buying a pup it’s best to buy from a licensed breeder or a loving family who occasionally breed. This way we can support dogs in being treated properly and not solely used as ‘cash cows’ - this is a very very sad situation for any animal to be in.
That orange ‘tosh gets me every time 🥰
This girl though - just love her so much ❤️
And yes the kitchen coming along…. Worktops next week then I’ll finally have a sink after 5 months 🤭🤣
I’ll be a new woman!!
Enjoy your Thursday evening guys ❤️
Say hi to the new additions to our growing doggie family. Mum welcomes Waffle and Coco to the gang.
Why not give a follow to see her adventures with these two cuties ❤️
Monday morning cuddles with these girls 💕
We will be planning two litters of Cavapoos this summer and a litter of Cavachons in the autumn
Keep following us if you are on our waiting list for updates 💕
Morning cuddles with my bear. Honestly Fleur is the best behaved out of my pack. She is super chilled and smart. But she was the most trying puppy to train! She was destructive and we had to put everything valuable out the way, she dug up my lawn and ate whole joints of meat off the worktops 🤣
However with the right training she has become my best friend ❤️
Moral to the story? With patience and love based training a dog can change your world for the better ❤️
We also cherish the memories of eating take outs when she ate our meals!!
Look at Maggie’s face 😍
She clearly knew this was her brother ❤️❤️
Boo is spreading her love everywhere - why not join our doggie family and live the dream!!
Catching the last of the rays
These pooches are real sun worshippers ❤️
Here at Hounds of Harvington we try to ensure our home and garden is suited to meet all of our girls needs so that they are truly happy. This weekend we are making a few changes - love an exciting project don’t you? ❤️❤️
“We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals”
Look at those eyes 😍
Olive loves her new jumper 🥰
Thank you ❤️
We really do make the best babies here at Hounds of Harvington wouldn’t you agree? 🤩
As you all know I walk my dogs every day out in the countryside and this morning was no different but while I was out I couldn’t stop thinking about that poor woman who is missing at the moment. She like me walked her dog every morning on the same route as part of a normal morning routine. I really hope this has a good outcome and she can be back with her family very soon. It makes me sad that such a lovely pleasurable experience can end in such a tragedy.
Stay safe everyone- remember to always take your mobiles and walk on routes where there are always other people around.
Sending love to Nicola’s family x
Coco still loves her bed!! Honestly it’s all those warm childhood memories she has 😂🤣
We love our dogs don’t we? Yet it can be a challenge in training them especially if it your first dog. Understanding their behaviour and motivations is crucial in getting to the bottom of any undesirable traits they may have. So over the next few weeks I will be posting tips and advice that you can easily add to your daily routine to help improve the situation and in time lead to the desired behaviour you want.
We will cover the following all too common issues:
I will aim to reply to messages but please don’t be offended if I can’t as I also have to manage my other daily messages too
Just remember changing a behaviour takes a lot of time, patience and most of all LOVE! Your precious pooch loves you and they just need a reminder of how much by you understanding where they are coming from ❤️❤️
These guys waiting for me to come home ❤️
