Today is our cockapoo Torre's (named after Joe Torre) first birthday. My daughter & I met with Jan in May of 2010, she had 3 puppies left that were born on St. Patrick's Day, 1 female & 2 males. We thought we were only going to look, little did I know that driving home without a puppy would break both our hearts. So, I called Jan and said "We're coming back". Nearly 1 year later I cannot imagine our lives without our fur-baby. She is so much fun, and loves, loves, loves to be around people. Several people have told us that she is the cutest dog they have ever seen and even think she looks like a stuffed animal. Thank you Jan for being so helpful and giving us such a special addition to our family.

After 5 years of begging, I promised my daughter that if she scored a soccer goal I would get her a dog. She scored 2. So...we went to Jan's and picked out Comet. That was almost two years ago and our lives have been all the richer ever since. We are not "dog" people and 3 of us have allergies. He now sleeps in my room and we have not had a moment's trouble with any type of allergy. He has a great disposition and his trainer at St. Hubert's said he was the best one in his class. In fact, we can't remember what life was like without him. Thanks again Jan!

Dear Jan, This is the 3rd year since we got Ginger a cockapoo. It was a Christmas present for my daughter Vickie. Ginger has brought so much joy to our family. I can not think of a day that has gone by without Ginger making us smile and be grateful that she is part of our family. Aside from yearly checkups, we have not spend a penney in vet bills, your cockapoos are very healthy. But the reason why I was so impressed with you personally, is when I asked you if the dogs were "messy" because my wife was a "neat freak" rather than giving me a sales pitch, you told me, that maybe we should look else where. That showed how much you care for your pups. Little we knew, she turned out to be the cleanest, obedient, and most playful pup ever. Thanks a million for the devotion and love that you put into your puppies and mostly for the care you put into Ginger. Sincerely, The Davila's Marcelo, Valerie, Jessica and Victoria.

Hi Jan!!! My family got Lucy,nearly 2 months ago (I can't believe it!) She is socializing well with other dogs and just made a "best friend." I will always remember when we first came to your house, "Just to look," my dad said. Little did I know that my entire family would completely fall head over heals in love with cockapoos, ecspecially the little cream one, the puppy we now lovingly call Lucy. The first moments I've ever had with Lucy are planted into my brain and are constantly on replay. I love Lucy (my first dog ever) so much. Thank you Jan!!!!!

The world’s greatest dog is now two and half years old. I grew up with champion bred bird dogs who proved to be excellent companions as well as fantastic field dogs, but the Cockapoo puppy which we brought home from Jan’s house in West Orange is the most incredible dog we ever been around. We originally choose the Cockapoo because of my wife having dog allergies and is very sensitive pet hair and dander. Our Cockapoo does not shed and has no or very little dander and is a very clean dog. I now may come home on a cold winter Sunday afternoon to find him cuddled up taking a nap with my wife; seeing how close they have become is amazing when considering that my wife, who was not a “dog person” and once thought we should not have the dog on the second floor to ensure she would not suffer from allergy issues. Leo’s was socialized with people, children , and other dogs, and that socialization when combined with his excellent breeding and nice size makes him welcomed when visiting friends and family, quite frankly he is often the most popular family member. Leo is large for a Cockapoo, something Jan predicted; but he is perfect for our family because while he is still small enough to be a lap dog (well, a large lap), and he is big and strong enough for a long hike. My daughter says “he’s a glass is half full” type dog, meaning he exudes happiness; which from what I have read is typical of Cockapoos. He is proud and happy, with his long tail usually held high like a feathery plume, and usually walks with almost with a prance. The prideful strut which he presents is the type of personality I’ve seen fondly sought by dog show judges; it has made me wonder about his father’s background knowing Jan’s connection to her mother’s champion Poodles. He does not display dominant behaviors found in many male dogs such as mounting. This good behavior most likely is due to being neutered before reaching maturity but it should also be attributed to Jan’s breeding and his proper socialization skills. The high intellect of the Jan’s Cockapoos is quickly apparent and should be kept in mind when training. The dog’s great desire to please allows for easy training, but trainer needs to remember the well bred Cockapoo’s ability for independent thinking and problem solving, something inherited from his distant ancestry to field dogs. A soft touch, balanced with providing him with an understand “why” something needs to be done is important to this highly intelligent “breed”. Do not underestimate the importance of a well bred dog, something perhaps even more important for Cockapoos who have become very popular and yet because they are not being recognized as a purebred breed do not have an association for protecting set breeding standards. While we consider him to be the world’s greatest dog, I am sure he is not unusually for one of Jan’s Cockapoo.

Hi Jan: Our family picked up Lucy (a cream colored girl) from you a little over a month ago. Now we can't remember what life was like without her! She is so cute and smart! I don't know who is more smitten with her-the kids, my husband or the grandparents. She is all about unconditional love ...and she makes us exercise too--which is an added bonus really. Thanks again-- The Haquias

My husband and I adopted Duncan on May 2nd of this year. He is truly the best! He is so social, sweet, smart and so cute! Whenever we are out in public people always ask us about him. His doggie daycare place also tells us that he is the dog that they get the single most questions about. "Everyone loves Ducan" that is our new household motto.
