M & K Cockapoos of MS

Our goal is to breed healthy, kid friendly cockapoos

About Us


M&K Cockapoos of MS are a small town family owned cockapoo breeding kennel located in central Mississippi.   Our goal is to provide families with a lasting companion to have mutual love and care for within their home.  We've got over 20 years of experience with cocker spaniels, poodles, and cockapoos.

The reasons we breed F1 cockapoos as opposed to other breeds:

  • They are hypoallergenic, meaning they shed very little and are a very good breed for those with allergies.
  • They are a smaller breed dog with our mix of miniature and toy poodles.
  • The mix of cocker spaniel and poodle gives the cockapoo a more robust health.
  • They have above average IQ.  Cocker spaniels are known to be very sweet and attaching type pets.  The poodle is very reputable for his/her high IQ.  This makes for an outstanding family dog.
  • They are a very playful and patient dog, well suited for families with children or other dogs.  They also tend to be extremely submissive.  If you have small children that tend to be a little rough, then a cockapoo is one you can more easily trust around that child.
  • F1 cockapoos are a 1st generation cockapoo that guarantees a 50/50  mix of pure poodle and pure cocker spaniel.  Anything other than F1's will be heavy on the poodle or cocker side.  For example: F1b's are a mix of a cockapoo parent with a poodle or cocker spaniel parent.  You will get a 75/25 mix and therefore have much more of poodle or cocker spaniel.  It's our opinion that if you're looking for that, you'd be just as well off getting a pure bred of one or the other as opposed to a cockapoo.
All of our cocker spaniel and miniature and toy poodle dogs come from 1-2 kennels we have a history of working with and that are highly reputable for producing healthy champion sired pedigrees.  Most all of our dames and sires are already registered with AKC or CKC. We keep all of our dogs up to date on immunizations and deworming and they are all socialized at our home with our 3 children who range in age from 4 to 8. We use a vet less than a mile from where we live for all our puppy and adult dog needs and would be happy to provide you with their name and number upon request for reference. Please take the time to read, look, and enjoy the pictures and information on our site and Contact Us should you have any questions.

Purchasing Information


Pricing

Our puppy prices are set based on the economic principle of supply and demand in conjunction with what we offer in comparison with other breeders. They are heavily weighted on gender and even more so on color. We also offer one of the most robust health warranty and contracts in the market. The prices of our puppies are set and are non-negotiable. Occasionally we will adjust the price of puppies to accommodate changes in said supply and demand as well as due to the age of the puppy. The purchase not only provides you your new family member but also a supply of puppy food that the puppy has been eating, a few toys that the puppy has gotten use to, a health warranty for congenital defects, deworming treatment, a professional vet health check, a complete health record you can take to your vet, treatment for parasites, and two required shots before leaving for their new home. Also, we send updated videos via text messaging to all our buyers. This is fun as it will show the growth and details you can't get from photos.

Making A Deposit

In selecting your new family member, you'll need to make a non-refundable deposit of $500 via our website on the puppy you want. This deposit is non-refundable because once the puppy is held, no one else is able to purchase it. Should you change your mind or something happen that prevents you from picking up your puppy, we have to resale the puppy at a reduced price many times. The exception to this is if the puppy is determined to be unfit as a pet or has a congenital defect as both are outlined in our contract. Note: If you hold a puppy via our website and do not make a deposit within the hour, we will relist the puppy.

Pick Up

We require all of our puppies to be picked up by their new families. This is due to several reasons, but the main reason is because we raise many puppies and a lot of times those puppies are being picked up at almost the same time. We can't possibly be at more than one place at a time. Other reasons involve costs along with care needing to be given on a regular basis at our kennel. We are a family owned business and don't have employees around to help maintain it while we are away. Puppies, per our contract, are required to be picked up no later than their 9 week birthday. If your puppy is not picked up by their 9 week birthday, then the deposit will be forfeited and we will rehome the puppy.

New Puppy Prep


F.A.Q


Where are you located?

We are located in a small country subdivision just outside of Kosciusko, MS.  We are just 60-70 miles NE of Jackson, MS and about 120 miles SE of Memphis, TN.

Will you meet for pick up?

No.  We do not leave the kennel to deliver puppies.  We just have too many obligations at the kennel and to other buyers to commit to anyone for travel.

How long have you been a breeder?

We've been helping or raising cocker spaniel, poodles, and cockapoo puppies since 1999.  We've had other litters in the past of different breeds but our specialty is bringing quality cockapoo family members into loving homes.

How can I be notified when you have new cockapoo litters?

Like and follow our Facebook page (M&K cockapoos of MS) and allow for notifications from that page.  That is the quickest and easiest way to stay up to date on what we have going on or coming up other than visiting our website regularly.

When will you have more puppies?

We try to keep our website up to date daily, so when we know that one of our ladies is pregnant, we will list them under the ​Upcoming Litters​​​ link.

Can I make a deposit on upcoming litters?

No.  At this time we are not holding future litters or puppies.  Puppies are available for deposit/hold once we've posted them to the Available Puppies link.  It is very much a first come first serve basis.

How much are your cockapoo puppies?

All of our puppy prices are listed on our Available Puppies page.  Most puppies will range in price from $2,000.00 to $3,000.00 with a few being less and a few being more.

Do you ever sell your adult dogs?

We will occasionally rehome one of our ladies or studs for a neuter and/or spade fee.  This is rare as a lot of times these become our family.  Should we ever decide to rehome one, we will make a rehoming page.

What if I get home and the puppy gets sick or dies?

We take extreme care for our puppies.  They live inside our home with their mother the whole time they are here with the exception of the last 2 weeks.  We deworm them multiple times and give them their required shots and parasite treatments.  We do our very best to make sure you have a very healthy new pet; however, sometimes unexpected situations do occur and we do offer certain protections outlined in our Health Guarantee and Contract.  We encourage you to read through it and let us know if you have any questions by Contacting Us.

Do you offer shipping of a puppy?

We are using a ground transporter we've used in the past.
Please see our Contract for additional terms and conditions related to this pick-up option.

We do not fly our puppies for several reasons.
1. We live over an hour and a half from the nearest airport and many times that airport will not work best for the puppy as it relates to direct flights.
2. This has a tendency to put undue stress on a puppy. Traveling at this age is stress enough. Putting them on a plane with no human present compounds it. Remember, these are very young puppies that have leaned on human and/or other dog interaction.
3. Increased USDA regulations have made it costly and extremely difficult to ship live animals.
4. Puppies would much rather travel with their loving new families than be put in cargo with other animals that they've likely never even seen.

When can I pick my puppy up?

No earlier than their 8 week birthday.  Puppies need to have their 2 vaccinations and our veterinarian health check prior to leaving.  This is for the benefit of the puppy and is in no way an attempt to prevent you from having them sooner than later.  Please do not ask to pick your puppy up sooner than their 8 week birthday!

Can we come look at the puppy(s) prior to pickup?

No.  There is several reasons for this and why we sell virtually as opposed to in home.  There is a safety issue for the puppies as it relates to a disease called parvovirus.  Once that enters a kennel it is all but impossible to overcome.  Liability and insurance is also a matter that doesn't allow for visiting the kennel.  Additionally, uncommon visitors, announced or otherwise, tends to stress the mothers.  This is not good for anyone, including your puppy.  When you come to pick your puppy up, we will only have your puppy out and available to visit.  This is to limit contact with the others in an effort to curb all of these issues.  

Why do you breed cockapoos?

Our family has always had a history of allergies, including our 3 sons.  The hypo allergenic and general non-shedding nature of a cockapoo makes them great puppies for many families, including our own.  Our other reasons can be found in our ABOUT section.

Can we request updated photos of our puppy?

Yes, but please understand that we usually have several litters and/or puppies at the same time.  We try our best to send buyers up to date videos via text messaging weekly.  This isn't always possible as we have 3 boys who have activities going on as well as work at the kennel and outside of it that we must get done daily, so please please be patient with us!  Updated photos will be posted to our AVAILABLE PUPPIES link.

Do you dock the tails and dew claws?

Yes.  We dock all of our cockapoo puppies dew claws and tails.  If tails and dew claws are not docked or remain undocked, there is potential for health related issues.
