Welcome to Dutch Haven Dogs!
We are a family hobby breeder with a passion for raising first-class family pets. Our puppies are first-generation cockapoos, meaning their parents are Cocker Spaniel (mom) and Miniature Poodle (dad). They are healthy, handsome and friendly puppies, very human-centric and eager to please. They are great for families with children, love to be held, and are always up for adventure. They get along well with other animals, too. Cockapoos are a low-shedding, low-dander breed and can be a good choice for people who suffer with allergies.
Have you seen our "All Grown Up" page? Do you have a great photo of your Dutch Haven dog?! We'd love to highlight your pup if you send photos and a brief bio!
The Family Difference
We are the Groen Family! All of our dogs are family pets - they live in our homes and play with our kids. When puppies arrive, they get lots of love and attention. Read more about how this works on the About Us page.
A Puppy Proposal!!
We were excited to play a tiny role in the big question! Keenan is a really romantic guy who knows what his sweetheart likes. He's been patiently waiting for the perfect puppy, and when she was ready, the timing was perfect. Ignoring the chilly wind blowing off of Portsmouth harbor, Keenan invited Stephanie for a walk in Prescott Park. As they came around the corner, Stephanie greeted an adorable Cockapoo puppy who "happened" to be walking there (Dolly of Lucy's litter) and read the tag, which said, "Stephanie, if you say yes, you can keep me!" When she turned around, Keenan was down on one knee with a ring in his hand. I'm happy to say she said YES!
My goal in life is to be as good of a person as my dog already thinks I am. ~Unknown
