Our Family

Instilling a love and compassion for animals in my children's hearts.

Hello and Welcome to Chesley Hill Cockapoos!

My name is Destiny and I am so excited to share with you about our family. 

I am a work-from-home mom of four - Tyler (12), Devin (11), Drew (8) and Reid (6).

Our boys are home-schooled and wonderful helpers to me in raising pups and caring for our dogs.  All of our mommas and puppies live in our home with us and are part of each and every day.  Often during school, you can find one of the boys cuddled up on the couch with a puppy for reading or snuggled on a fluffy dog bed with one of the girls doing math.  We love to take walks, bikerides and hikes with our girls by our side.  Our backyard is often the setting for chase, playing catch and just being silly. The girls love to explore with the boys as they build forts and climb trees.

When you make the decision to add a puppy to your home we understand it's a big step, it's a commitment! And that's why our goal is to provide you with an exceptional puppy that has been handled by our children from a very young age, provided with age appropriate socialization and activities, and will be a happy & healthy dog.

"At the end of the day, I'm not putting puppies on the ground, I'm putting relationships into the world"

I LOVE WHAT I DO!  

Honestly, being a breeder is amazing!  Amazingly HARD and amazingly wonderful!  

 

A dog lover since childhood, our family was passionate about rescuing Doberman Pinschers. Our home had an open door and open hearts for dobes - many came with hurts and hang ups that took patience, love, and understanding of canine behavior to properly transition into our home and into relationship with people and other dogs.

As a young adult I decided to move across country to beautiful San Francisco.  Once settled in I realized my heart was missing the love and companionship of a fur-baby.  I adopted "Oliver" my sweet pug from a rescue there.  Weekends were spent in training for both of us.  We worked on basic obedience and continued through some light agility work.  City walks off-leash, trips to the local dog park, hikes in the Marin Headlands and take-your-dog to work (ok, I admit, take your dog EVERYWHERE) were our life.

We made the move back to NH (where I was born and raised) in 2006, and we quickly fell in love with Dave.  Oliver and Dave were inseperable and Ollie soon became the well-loved jobsite dog.


In 2013 we added a Cocker Spaniel to our home, our beautiful Gracie, and began the wonderful journey we continue on today.....lovingly raising Cockapoo puppies.

As a dedicated dog owner I strive to remain educated and up to date on best practices in dog training - taking classes and earning CEUs, attending seminars and conferences on: learning theory, training techniques, and general dog behavior (ethology).  Training is always evolving, and it's important to keep up with the latest (and best) concepts.

 

As a dedicated dog breeder I strive to remain educated and up to date on general canine health and safety as well as reproductive health.  I have certification from the American Red Cross in Dog First Aid and I attend breeding seminars, earn CEUs in courses and taking exams on Breeding Basics - Whelping & Medical Intervention - Nutritional Influences on Reproduction - and more.  

You should make sure the breeder you select to work with not only has a heart for dogs and puppies, but has knowledge of canine health and behavior (to include all breeding partners that are part of their breeding program). Commitment to being a reputable and knowledgeable breeder takes more than having a female and male dog!

My boys are a HUGE part of our breeding program.  So, I asked.......

"Boys, what are your favorite things about raising puppies and doggies? What are your least favorite things?"
