Ridley's Cockapoo puppies
CHC Families Only
On this page I'll be sharing with you a bit more about the 8 weeks we have raising your pup!
I'll share pictures and videos from our day - to include enrichment protocols and puppy curriculum (EPP / Puppy Culture) we use to raise happy, confident, stable, well-loved, well-adjusted, enrichment seeking pups.
Many breeders claim to use science-based curriculum and protocols (Puppy Culture, BAB) as well as ENS but not many actually do. That is why I will be sharing here, with you (transparency).

Favorite spot to sleep, December 16
Pups love to feel safe and secure, especially when sleeping. Spark and Corazon ADORE their play tunnel and quite often can be found snuggled up inside. ❤️🐾💙
Moving day, December 12
With eyes open and the pups able to move about, it's time for them to move to their larger weaning pen and begin working on their litterbox training. We use alfalfa pellets, and the pups take so naturally to the smell (outdoors & grass) and their innate sense to keep their space clean (not soiled).
Starting to explore with caution, they quickly acclimate with encouragement from Devin and Drew.
Momma Ridley still nurses her littles, though we've begun formula feeding (for them to lap out of their bowl). She adores her babes and is so happy to go in and care for them.
After a big day of play, moving, and a full belly - Spark and Corazon are ready to snuggle up and rest.
Settling in with momma, November 9
Look who's here!
Ridley welcomed her beautiful litter of 2 adorable Cockapoo puppies via c-section today under the very careful and skilled care of the Reproductive Team at our veterinary hospital, Broadview Animal Care.
Momma and pups are doing well, settling in nicely, and resting.
Nesting & resting, November 7
Ridley's due date is quickly approaching, and we eagerly await the arrival of her litter.
Today she began showing signs of early labor - Nesting (digging, panting, and sticking quite close to me) and resting in between.
She is such a sweet girl and wonderful momma.
