Massive thank you to all my wonderful puppy families truly overwhelmed to receive such wonderful and thoughtful gifts.
Great feed back is so rewarding we are constantly reciveing updates and photos of our wonderful puppies .
We often get owners coming back for their second dog from ourselves and a majority of our puppies are placed on recommendation alone.
There are literally no words enough to explain what Melissa is like as a breeder or that could do her justice.
Before lockdown we were desperate for a puppy but when it started we made a decision as a family to wait for the right breeder no matter how long that took ... we researched and researched and after all the glowing reviews, decided to wait for Melissa’s litter. I don’t think I’ve made a wiser choice!
The magic is always in the detail. The week we chose our puppy, my 5 year old received a “thank you for choosing me” card in the post for her efforts playing the violin over zoom (our puppy turned her little head, came to the screen and watched the whole performance so we knew she was the one!) it was such a sweet and kind gesture and encapsulates everything about Melissa and the journey with her.
We were invited to send a scent blanket that we’d kept for a few days to Daisy so she could get used to our smell before picking her up and this thoughtfulness towards her puppies was seen in a hundred other details.
We went to pick Daisy up apprehensive about the journey.. when we got there we were greeted by Daisy, presented with incredibly detailed paperwork, a beautiful gift (gorgeous paw prints box with toys and personalised blanket and towel, treats, food, grooming stuff, lead and collar among other things!) ...
The greatest gift ever was Daisy... a chilled out, laid back, confident little puppy that sniffed and kissed us for the first five minutes and then slept the whole journey back!
Melissa’s socialisation plan really shone through! We listened to all her advice (not only on the day but she sent us a whole puppy guide before we picked our pup up) and it means Daisy happily slept (or at least stayed quiet) from 11pm to 6.30am) in the kitchen with her bed, water, king toys and puppy pads - we didn’t crate)...
I read so many stories about puppies that get distressed if you leave them but that’s to the incredible start Melissa gave Daisy, she happily waddles off to the kitchen for her own quiet time and has her hour/2 hour nap there and comes to play with us when she’s done!
We home educate our daughter and the second day she was taken out to meet all the kids (8 kids between 4-11) and they all carried and kissed and fussed over her and she was a saint! All testament to the great start in life she was blessed with!
We took Daisy to the vet on day 3, armed with Daisy’s folder and the vet said “in all my 17 years of being a vet in Australia and the UK, I have never come across anything more professional!” And it’s true.. but it’s not just professional, it’s sweet and humane and just overall wonderful!
But what was even more amazing was how at hand Melissa has been since we picked up our puppy! The next day she was on the phone with us - the whole family on speaker - answering all our questions, asking how the day and night had gone, suggesting tweaks... and has checked in and answered every silly little question we had immediately!! It’s just blown my mind the level of care she’s given the puppies, and us, the owners.
I’m so thankful Melissa, for every single thing you’ve done, every single thing you’ve taught us and every bit of help you’ve so joyfully given! You’re an incredible human being and I am grateful people like you exist in the world!
From nelly and family
We cannot recommend Melissa highly enough! We have struck gold, Melissa is second to none. When we started a new chapter in our family life of welcoming a puppy into our home ,little did we know how hard it was to find a genuine, passionate,caring breeder. From the moment we made contact with Melissa we have 100% been blown away with her knowledge, guidance and kindness. We are first time dog owners and Melissa has been there every step of the way providing us with a healthy, confident, well socialised beautiful puppy. Even before we picked Herbie up Melissa prepared us with a puppy guide and online information. We loved having pup dates each week ,whilst waiting to bring him home. Melissa’s thoughtfulness also shone through on collection day providing each puppy with a wonderful puppy pack ( including a travel pack for the journey home!). We felt very well prepared for life at home with the thoughtful items including personalised towel, grooming brushes, food and even a beautiful toy box to name but a few items! Even though Herbie has now been home with us just over a week Melissa has always been at hand to give us advice on any concerns we have had as new puppy owners . We cannot wait to begin our adventure with Herbie and will be forever grateful to Melissa for making this possible! Thank you Melissa from the bottom of our hearts .
Melissa originally came on recommendation from a friend. Straight away I could tell that she was passionate about her dogs and the breeding of the little ones. We were going to be first time dog owners and had considered this decision for a year and a half but I immediately I liked her and felt reassured and comfortable.
It took a year from first contact to actually having Vincent but in that time we stayed in regular contact and built up a good relationship, this is essential for anyone thinking of having a dog! Even though it took time I didn’t once think of going elsewhere to find the dog we wanted because I could tell how much Melissa loved the dogs and puppies and was so informative passionate about what she does..
We let Melissa match us with our dog as she got to know their personalities and found out about our family and it was such a good decision as we are first time dog owners and put ourselves in her hands! It was the best decision. Our Vincent is such a wonderful, chilled out little man and people we know and meet that have dogs and those that don’t all comment on how well behaved and calm he is and this is testament to the work that Melissa has put in with him before we took him home ❤️ and it was well set up for us to carry on! She provided us with a well equipped puppy pack, lovely gifts and all the information we needed for our first few days as we felt a bit nervous about this new little man we were going to have responsibility for! But it was love at first sight! Its also been so reassuring to know that whenever I need advice or want to talk something through she’s just at the end of the phone and wants to know how Vincent is getting on and to see photos of him. I was expecting a couple of months of hell but it has been so much easier than I expected and we honestly can’t imagine a life now without our little Vincent. Thank you Melissa ❤️..
So today this beautiful little puppy got his ‘work uniform’. He’s already settled into our home and confidently learnt his way around two school sites. He is the most incredible puppy, beautiful, gentle and brave. He is picking up his training so quickly and constantly amazes me with how clever he is. I know, with absolute certainty that so much of this is because Melissa gave him the best start and I can’t thank her and her family enough. She was great while we were waiting for him
to arrive, supporting with socialisation, training and just being patient with my questions and has remained a brilliant support during his first month in our home. Thank you Melissa - for everything. Xx
As a family we feel blessed to have found Melissa after much research. We had some big asks as we wanted a therapy puppy and had settled on a cavapoochon as being the perfect breed. Melissa has been a huge help and incredibly supportive. Monty is a superstar. He has fitted in to family life perfectly and is so calm and confident. He makes our daughter laugh and giggle every day and gives the best cuddles. He soon got used to his car seat and loves nothing more than a ride in my bike basket! He settled at night from day one and we knew just how much love and early training Melissa had given him. It was clear he was used to being handled and had been exposed to lots of different situations which has given him such confidence. We’ve continued with the training plan Melissa suggested and it’s working really well. He’s brilliant around our five year old cat, children of all ages and other friends dogs too. Our vet was very impressed when she could see all of the care and attention to detail from his paperwork. We will always be eternally grateful to have found Melissa and to have Monty in our lives. He is one special pup and we couldn’t have asked for more from Melissa.
Where do I start, we had been waiting so long for the right breeder to come along when I got the call from Mellisa I knew she was the one for us she was amazing.
Melissa was extremely helpful and was always at the end of the phone or by text which was important for us being first time dog owners.
And she continues to support us now when ever we need any advice. The day we met nala over face time we immediately fell in love she was perfect.
Mellissa provided us with regular updates, photos ,videos until the day we collected her. When we got her home she settled in extremely well she was immediately able to use puppy pads and is doing fab she is a very loving puppy and very clever, she is loved so much and has made our family complete.
I would thoroughly recommend Melissa as a breeder to anyone we feel very lucky to have met her and for her to have picked us to home one of her beautiful puppies.

Melissa made me feel comfortable from the moment we spoke, she was able to answer any questions I had and kept me updated every week with pictures of our new pup! We couldn’t wait to pick her up and when we did we couldn’t be more thrilled. Olive easily settled into our family from the moment she arrived. She wasn’t nervous at all, interacted nicely with everyone and after a few days slept right through the night with no issues. It’s clear she was socialised properly, plus Melissa even gave us a bundle of toys, treats and a personalised blanket which was really helpful for her first few weeks at home. She has even kept in touch as she loves to know how Olive is getting on. I would highly recommend her and feel so grateful she raised such a lovely pup that has changed our lives for the better!
Finding Melissa was truly one of the happiest things to happen to me in such a long time. Right from the moment I had my first phone call with her I could tell how much the puppies meant to her, she was so informative and took the time to really spell out to me what each stage of this process would be.
Due to covid we had to first meet our beautiful Penny over a zoom call, on this call we could see what a beautiful home the puppies had and how gloriously content they all were! No less than two days later we received a card through the post with a photo of our Penny Pup and it was addressed to my little girl thanking her for choosing her. This made my girl well up with happiness, she felt so special and it immediately created the start of their bond.
Melissa kept us well up to date with regular photos over the coming weeks until the big day finally arrived for us to pick her up - we chose an early morning slot as we were beside ourselves with excitement.
On arrival the absolutely beautiful Melissa greeted us with our freshly pampered pooch who was fluffy and smelling of baby powder, it was like something out of a fairytale honestly, Melissa had made us the most unbelievable hamper to take away with us complete with literally EVERYTHING we could need for our first few weeks as new puppy parents! A big bag of food along with vouchers for this food brand, A personalised blanket, grooming brushes, puppy perfume, shampoo, toys, puppy pads - you name it she had it, and all presented in a gorgeous wooden crate, it’s just unheard of for a breeder to go to these lengths!!
Also included were all of the relevant vets documents meaning I would have such an easy experience when taking her to my vets for the first time.
Now for the best part, the part that speaks volumes - taking our puppy home. She was calm, content and completely comfortable and not phased by my crazy little girl who was completely over excited and wanted her to play immediately.
Thanks to Melissa’s hard work our puppy immediately did her toilet on the potty pads, I could not believe my eyes, then at night she settled down nicely as we went off to bed and other than a small stir she slept right through! People cannot believe how lucky I am when I tell them about my perfect pooch but I tell them the only luck was finding Melissa, the rest of it is all her hard work.
We are on our second week now with our perfect princess and I truly can’t remember life before her, she is the perfect addition to the family and the most perfect companion to my little girl who says she has found her best friend for life!
Thank you Melissa for changing our lives forever in the most magical way xxx
Can’t believe how lucky we were in finding Melissa and will be eternally grateful for the absolute gift that is Poppy! Melissa was helpful and knowledgeable from day one and is still there for support now, if and when we may need it. Thanks again and again....... Helen & Rob
It was evident from my first call with Melissa that she has a passion and love for dogs and when we first met Roofus it was clear that he had been brought up in a family home with lots of love. Not only did Melissa provide us with regular updates from the day Roofus was born but she’s also been on hand for any questions or concerns we have had since we picked him up which has been amazing and so helpful given this is our first time raising a puppy. He has fitted into our life so seamlessly and is such a confident and playful little bundle of fluff, we now couldn’t imagine life without him ❤️
We couldn’t of asked for a better breeder and nicer person then Melissa, she is so knowledgeable and our little man is perfect. Our puppy is so confident and not afraid of anything, he showed signs of being trained from the start. With in a week we have got him toilet trained, on the first night he slept all the way through. When we’ve used a Hoover, hears a loud bang it doesn’t even bother him at all. We got weekly pup dates and even though we now have the pup she is always on the other side of the phone when I have a question or two. Would recommend to anyone wanting a pup, very professional. All we can say is Thankyou to Melissa!
Our Rio is amazing, we knew right away he had the best possible start in life which made everything easier for us. He took the long car journey, kids playing/crying, neighbour’s dogs barking, loud cars/dogs when being held on walks and household noises all in his stride immediately. We feel so lucky to have came across Melissa who ticked all the ‘what you want from a breeder’ boxes right away, then sent us weekly updates and from day 1 has always been there to help/answer any questions. Rio has made our house a home
In my search for a cavapoochon puppy I was very particular about finding an ethical breeder who places high importance on the health and wellbeing of both their litters and the dogs they breed from. I was especially keen to use someone whobreeds from DNA-tested parents to ensure that puppies are clear from all hereditary conditions associated with theirconstituent breeds, and who raises their litters within a loving home setting, with a focus on early socialisation, giving puppies the best possible start in life. From researching online, I came across Melissa at Kent Cavapoo &Cavapoochons, who not only ticked all these boxes but also placed an encouraging emphasis on vetting potential ownersthoroughly to ensure that puppies go only to good homes.
From choosing my puppy Busby to bringing him home, Melissa has taken care to update and support me as a first-time owner. She sent a gorgeous ‘thank you for choosing me’ card from Busby and weekly photo and video updates of himuntil he came home, and provided us with a beautiful toy box full of essentials and goodies to start us off. I also received a comprehensive set of paperwork for Busby, as well as an extremely helpful puppy guide in advance so that I could prepare for his arrival, covering the necessary kit I would need for him and guidelines for establishing important routines. Melissa is extremely knowledgeable and has been ready with advice whenever I have requested it, for which I’m very grateful, and it’s hugely reassuring to know that I haveher ongoing support.
Busby is absolutely beautiful and has the sweetest temperament; he is affectionate, calm and quick to learn. He settled in with us seamlessly and has been a joyful addition to our family; he’s truly adorable and everything I hoped he would be. It’s clear that Melissa has a passion for breeding and takes great pride in everything she does, and I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Melissa was recommended to us from a friend.
From the moment We spoke on the phone I felt we were in safe hands. Professional, knowledgeable, and clearly kind and loving with her animals.
She clearly explained the breed and his parentage so our expectations were managed correctly.
She welcomed us to her home, we saw the puppies interacting with their mother, she also took time to get to know us and make sure we were the right fit for our cavapoo and vice versa.
Whilst we waited for him to live with us, Melissa kept us updated with pictures and videos of how he was getting on.
When he arrived home, with his own toys, bed and blankets - it was clear He has been socialised beautifully. He has never been anxious or jumpy - he’s comfortable in our home, with our children and adores everyone.
He has a been our light in the dark and we can’t imagine our family without him.
The journey to owning a fur baby has been a long one. Our daughter first planted the seed a couple of years ago. After consideration (and expert negotiation and persuasion from our daughter) we decided that we were ready to take the plunge! We embarked on a period of exploration, which was fraught with potential pitfalls! Non registered breeders, sketchy information and a plethora of options focusing on what the puppy looks like! How different Melissa is! From the outset we could tell that this was going to be a totally different, and positive, experience. Melissa places so much emphasis on matching your lifestyle with the puppy’s temperament and personality. I loved the fact that she focused on these, so much more vital, elements rather than dressing the puppy up for a photo shoot! Autumn has been with us for a little over two weeks now. She is a robust, happy and healthy puppy. A fast learner and an absolute joy!
Where do we start?! Melissa is the breeder of all breeders - what an absolute superstar!
Both my wife and I had not owned a dog before so we had plenty of questions ahead of paying our deposit. Melissa spent a significant amount of time to discuss everything with us on the phone. She was unbelievably knowledgeable as well as patient - given all the silly questions we had!
We visited Teddy when he was 5/6 weeks old. We could tell how well looked after he was along with his mummy and brothers and sisters. Once again Melissa was amazing at answering our never ending questions during this visit - we spent over an hour at her house!
We picked Teddy up to come to his new home when he was 8 weeks. He is the most amazing, wonderful, perfect and calm dog - along with another hundred adjectives! We honestly could not have hoped for better. ALL credit must go to Melissa and her family for how they looked after him and socialised him into a home environment during his first two months.
Melissa continues to always want photos of Teddy and she consistently checks up on him to see how he is - which we massively appreciate. She still answers all our questions that arise every now and then - and she still manages to surprise us with her exceptional knowledge.
If there was a best breeder in the world contest - Melissa would win hands down. Thank you for the being the best of the best.
Melissa came highly recommended by a friend who bought her puppy from her as well as my vet who examined their puppy. She was the first person I called when we finally decided to get a dog and her warm and trustworthy response meant that I had to look no further:
As a dog novice she took the time to explain everything to me in detail, kept me in the loop with our puppy’s development pro-actively and checked in a few times over text and phone calls.
Simba our puppy arrived in perfect condition, was beautifully socialised and is the kindest puppy we could have asked for.
It won’t come as a surprise that I have already recommended her to various friends of mine and will continue to do so.
A big thank you Melissa for everything you have done for us!’
Oh my goodness Cherry is doing great. We love her so much! She’s the friendliest, bounciest, snuggliest little pup — honestly better than we could have dreamed! You have done such a brilliant job bringing her up! From the moment we picked her up, she was confident, adaptable, and ready for anything. She LOVES people and other dogs, she doesn’t mind any city noises (even sirens passing!) - she took her first tube and bus journeys completely in stride and just relaxed and fell asleep! I have never gotten a dog from a breeder before, and you are the perfect example of why it can be absolutely brilliant. You have brought her up perfectly, we wouldn’t change a thing about our little angel dog!
Melissa was extremely helpful and informative which was important for us as first time dog owners. We visited him when he was 5 weeks old and immediately fell in love. For the next 3 weeks, Mellissa provided us with regular updates, photos and information such as his various health checkups. After collecting him at 8 weeks he was immediately able to use puppy pads and was sleeping through the night from his 2nd night. He had clearly been well socialised before we got him and he’s a very confident little chap and never barks apart at our floor steamer ! He’s fitting in well with our cats as he’d already met cats at Mellisa’s. He’s been a wonderful addition to the family and would thoroughly recommend Melissa as a breeder.
