WHO CAN HAVE
A COBBERDOG?

Anyone who commits to life-long care of one of our puppies is a perfect candidate for an Australian Cobberdog. Australian Cobberdogs are excellent companion dogs and have a very cheerful personality that matches up with anyone. Nonetheless, the Australian Cobberdog breed was developed to be hypoallergenic dogs with optimum qualities to do the work of a therapy dog or assistance dog. For this reason, DOGKING gives priority to all requests to acquire this breed from people or families where the dog will be able to carry out the function for which it was bred.  In other words, families with a member who has special needs and/or allergies, and  professionals that train the Australian Cobberdog to be a therapy or assistance dog have preference when it comes to acquiring one of our Australian Cobberdog puppies.

AT WHAT AGE ARE
THE PUPPIES GIVEN?

The Australian Cobberdog puppies are given from our centre after the age of 9 weeks, or 14 weeks if they have to be sent to their new home by plane. We do not deliver our puppies before they turn 9 weeks of age, because they are not weaned until then.  Weaning is the period when the puppies begin to abandon their diet based only on the mother's milk, which provides all the necessary antibodies for a healthy immune system and begin to try solid food. This starts at 5-6 weeks and should be a progressive change in diet until the puppy is  9 weeks old, and can leave its litter and begin to live with its family. For puppies who must travel by plane, they must have all of their vaccinations so they can be accepted on the flight, which means that they need to be at least 14 weeks old.
