A dog breeder is celebrating a decade of breeding cockapoos in Wales this month.
Janice Griffiths founded Jandaz Cockapoos back in 2004 and has watched her cockapoo puppies go to loving homes over that 10-year period.
Mrs Griffiths, 59, has bred dogs since the age of 18 and her dogs have competed at Crufts - the world’s greatest dog show - but she became most fond of cockapoo puppies and decided to breed them a decade ago.
Cockapoos are a cross of an American Cocker Spaniel or English Cocker Spaniel and a poodle, typically a miniature poodle or toy poodle. They have become a 'designer dog' popular with celebrities such as singer Lady Gaga and actress Jennifer Aniston although they have been around in the United States for more than 50 years.
Cockapoo puppies are small dogs and usually very active and agile but can live up to 15 years. Coats of the cockapoo vary from dog to dog but most are usually somewhere between Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle.
Jandaz Cockapoos have bred first, second, and third generation cockapoos and their colours include black, tan, beige, red, including auburn and apricot, brown, varying from light to dark, sable, a brown color with tipping and shading in black, cream, white, silver and brindle. In recent years, Jandaz Cockapoos have bred only American cockapoos and English show cockapoos.
All Jandaz cockapoos are vaccinated three times, health checked micro-chipped and wormed, and all cockapoo parents are eye tested and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) cleared. Jandaz Cockapoo has sold cockapoos worldwide, including all over Europe and as far as Barbados.
Jandaz Cockapoos customer Phil Eedy said: “Buddy, our apricot cockapoo, came to us from Jandaz and he is more than what we expected. He is handsome, great with kids, loving, gentle and above all 100 per cent fun.”
Another Jandaz Cockapoos customer Lisa Kelly said: “Our cockapoo is the absolute love of our life. He’s so loyal, loving, friendly, a bit cheeky and fantastic with the kids. We couldn’t have asked for a better dog and companion. We’re hoping to get him a little friend as soon as possible!”
