We are a small family breeder located in Central Minnesota, outside of Monticello. We specialize in raising Petite Cavapoos (Cavoodles) and Petite Cockapoos (Sproodles). Because we are not a puppy mill, we only have a few litters each year.
We put a lot of time and energy and care into raising our pups - which keeps us very busy.
We believe that God brings the right families together with the right puppies - a "match made in heaven".
We like to get to know our future family members. So don't be surprised if we ask lots of personal questions. And we like to keep in touch after everyone goes home!
On a side note, we do not ship our pups. If your family is chosen to adopt one of our pups, you will need to travel to Minnesota to pick up your pup.
Welcome to our Family.
Jeff and Chris Church
We have been married for over 33 years - still crazy in love after all these years!
We love Jesus and would be happy to share with you the Good News of having eternal life guaranteed. If you were to die tonite, do you know where you'll be going. Or if you just want someone to pray for you, we're available to do that too!
We love our country fiercely, and still believe this country was founded by God's grace and providence!
And we love our pups! Puppy breath, lots of licks, cuddles and tail-chasing!
We hope to have the opportunity to get to know you, and have you and your family become a part of our WoodHaven Family.
Family Owned and Operated
We have been breeding for 6+ years.
We have been under the mentorship of my parents who have been breeding Cavapoos and Cockapoos for 25+ years, Uphoff Country Kennel, located in Central Illinois.
My sister, White Barn Doodles, also located in Central Illinois, has also been under the mentorship of our parents.
Because I travel to Illinois at least once a month, we often offer adoption of White Barn Doodles and Uphoff Country Kennel pups. We all hold the same standard for raising pups, as well as having the same life values.
Our Cavapoos and Cockapoos have outstanding temperaments. They are generally non-shedding and great for most families with allergies.
Breeding a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with a Mini Poodle or a Cocker Spaniel with a Mini Poodle gives you the best of both worlds - superior intelligence and a loyal companion that is eager to please.
Our pups average 8-19 lbs in weight when full grown.
Our Cavapoos and Cockapoos are ranging in coloring from cinnamon with white markings, brindle, to black and tan pups. Because God is the final Creator of the puppies, we cannot guarantee any colors, whether those colors will fade, or whether they will have curly, wavy or a straight coat. We have found that a puppy's coat isn't determined until about 10 weeks of ago.
A puppy's personality does not start coming out until about 5-6 weeks. By this time, our puppies have all been spoken for. There is no difference between a male or female puppy as far as personality either. Just like children, each puppy has a distinct personality.
A mama dog is pregnant for 9 weeks. Once she has her puppies:
- WoodHaven Pups will look thru all applications that have been submitted.
Please note: all families will NOT be contacted.
- If your family is a good fit for our WoodHaven Family, we will then set up a time to do a Zoom interview.
- If your family is chosen, you will be invited to choose a puppy from a photo. (This is when a puppy is around 2-3 weeks.)
- If your family is interested, you will have 5 hours to place a 500$ non-refundable deposit.
From this point, we will contact you via texting with weekly picture updates and a video around week
6-7. Please be patient - we have a family too. When your puppy has reached 4 weeks of age, we will contact you to reserve an adoption date/time. NOTE: Due to the changing nature of our world, we will no longer be welcoming visits from families before adoption day.
Adoption Day is scheduled for when puppies are 8 weeks old (never before 8 weeks). On Adoption Day, plan for 30-45 minutes to meet with us and learn tips and helps for being a new puppy parent. You will be given a generous welcome home puppy packet and lots of good information. And, of course, hold your newest family member. NOTE: We do not allow you to bring your other dog(s) to join you for Adoption Day.
The remaining adoption fee of 1300$ will be due in cash at that time. You will also be asked to sign the Bill of Sale (see below), receive all of the additional paperwork, and go over any other questions you may have. And - take your first family photo with your new puppy!
Once you're home, WoodHaven Pups likes to stay in touch. And, of course, is always available for questions and pictures!!
The Adoption Fee for a Cavapoo or a Cockapoo is 1800$ total; 500$ nonrefundable deposit and the remaining 1300$ on Adoption Day. This fee includes being up to date on all shots and dewormings, being microchipped, a one year health guarantee, a generous welcome home puppy packet, the start of potty training and crate training, and the first vet visit.
We do not dock tails or remove dewclaws.
** WoodHaven Pups has the right to not move forward with a family and suggest another breeder at any time during the interviewing and adoption process. **
After choosing your puppy, a 500$ non-refundable deposit will be required within 5 hours.
We accept cash, Venmo or Zelle for a deposit. This deposit is applied toward the total cost of your puppy. After WoodHaven Pups receives your deposit, you will be texted a signed receipt.
On Adoption Day, we accept ONLY CASH for the remaining amount due.
If you have served with the military or are currently serving, or if you are a police officer, please let us know so we can offer you 10% off your adoption fee as a thank you for protecting us and serving our Country and Communities. (Documentation will need to be provided.)
WoodHaven Pups guarantees your puppy to be free of any life threatening congenital defects for one year from the puppy's date of birth. If upon examination by a licensed vet, your puppy is found to have a life threatening congenital defect, a replacement puppy will be offered. This may take up to 24 months. If Buyer does not wish to have a replacement puppy, the sale is considered final.
ONE YEAR HEALTH GUARANTEE FROM DATE OF BIRTH
The contract is for a PET ONLY - no breeding rights. Buyer agrees to have puppy spayed/neutered by 10 months of age. If Buyer breeds, either accidentally or purposeful, Buyer will be charged a $10,000 breach of contract fee and an additional $3,000 for each resulting puppy.
WoodHaven Pups certifies that your puppy is in good health and has been examined by our veterinarian, Oak Grove Animal Hospital, and is up to date on all vaccinations and dewormings. WHP will provide all medical history paperwork to Buyer at time of sale.
The Buyer agrees to have the puppy examined by a qualified, licensed vet of the Buyer's choosing within the first 72 hours of assuming custody. This puppy check can be done by any licensed vet. If puppy is not seen within these 72 hours by a licensed vet, this contract becomes void.
Buyer agrees to maintain preventative health care of the puppy, including but not limited to: vaccines, parasite prevention, monthly heartworm preventative, as recommended by veterinarian. If this maintenance is not followed, this contract becomes void.
Buyer agrees to use high quality dog food, proper age-appropriate exercise, prevent stress injuries (i.e., not allowing the puppy to jump from heights taller than itself at the shoulder, excessive running and exercise), and keep the puppy at a healthy body condition for the entirety of the dog's life. If these safety protocols are not followed, this contract becomes void.
Buyer agrees that they will not take the puppy to an area with other dogs until puppy is fully immunized - i.e., dog parks, doggy daycare, puppy kindergarten. If these safety protocols are not followed, this contract becomes void.
Buyer understands that the following slight defects are not considered serious or life threatening, and are not covered under this guarantee: umbilical hernia, inguinal hernia, cherry eye, undescended testicle, underbite or overbite, grade 1-2 heart murmur, grade 1-2 patella, entropian. This guarantee also does not cover hypoglycemia, coccidosis, kennel cough, giardia, mites, fleas, ticks, ringworm or ear infections.
WHP assumes no responsibility after date of adoption for: medical expenses, disease, mortality, landlord disapproval, allergies, shedding, personality, training, disagreement within the family or any other reasons not related to life threatening congenital defects, no refunds will be given.
If puppy dies within the first year, Buyer must pay to have an autopsy to ascertain the cause of death. If the cause is congenital, Seller will replace the puppy when a "like" puppy becomes available; this could take up to 24 months. If the puppy acquires a life threatening disease, WoodHaven Pups must be contacted within 24 hours of initial vet visit and also be notified in writing. In all cases, WHP reserves the right to have the puppy examined by our veterinarian. If the examination of the alleged defect is not genetic, but caused by trauma, stress, neglect, poor diet, abuse or any not-inherited factor, this contract is void.
If for whatever reason Buyer cannot or does not wish to maintain ownership of puppy, ownership will revert back to WoodHaven Pups. We have requests for adult dogs and will place dog in an appropriate, vetted home.
