Welcome and hello. We specialise in breeding healthy, happy, quality cavoodles. Our goal is to breed for health and temperament, so all our puppies are suitable for family pets.
We are a small registered dog breeding family living in Tamworth NSW, Australia. We have 5 children, ages 10 to 23, who all share our passion for dogs. Our journey with cavoodles began many years ago when our oldest daughter fell in love with the breed and researched them thoroughly. Our first cavalier was a beautiful little ruby girl. She brought so much joy and love to our family we were instantly sold on the breed. We researched more into cross breeding and decided that was the best option for us to be able to breed healthy family pets. As many know, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels can be plagued with many health problems due in part to the small gene pool, resulting in a lot of inbreeding. Please refer to the article on cross breeding for more information as to why we believe this to result in the healthiest puppies. James has a bachelor of science degree, including genetics, and a masters in biochemistry, and I, Alison a bachelor of health, so we understand the importance of sound genetics. We have thoughtfully and carefully sourced our dogs, and DNA tested every one for all tests currently available, to ensure, as much as is in our control, genetically sound puppies. We select our dogs on health and temperament.
We are registered breeders with Fur and Family First Companion Dog Breeders, membership number JK451916, and have a yearly independent yearly vet audit of the premises where the dogs are kept, ensuring every dog and puppies welfare and general care is more than optimum. Puppies, like people, are a product of nature, and nurture, their genetic makeup and the environment in which they are raised. We take great pride in raising healthy, happy and well socialised little puppies. we are also registered with our local council, and our BIN is B000652553.
Our mothers are well loved pets pets first and foremost, and their health and well being is of prime importance to us. They share our home, and our lives. They whelp in our home, usually in our bedroom where they feel most comfortable. They spend the first week under very close supervision, again generally in our bedroom, or our childrens (each of our children are the proud owner of a dog, and show them total devotion, so prefer to whelp and raise puppies as close to them as possible). I am always present, which results in many many sleepless nights, but wouldn’t have it any other way, as each puppy is of utmost importance to us. None of our dogs or pups are kept in cages. Most sleep on ours or one of our childrens beds!!
When puppies are between 3 and 4 weeks and begin to wander and take interest in life and food they come out to our living room so they can interact with the whole family. Once puppies reach 6 weeks and have received their first vaccination they begin to venture outside.
I don’t work away from home, so am able to devote my time to raising my children, of course, and our beautiful puppies. As I am always on hand I have the time and the passion to devote to each little puppy to ensure all the physical needs are met, as well as their social and emotional needs. And without saying the children dote on each puppy too.
We only sell our puppies directly to families. We do not sell to pet shops or 3rd parties to onsell. We love to know just where our babies are going and stay in contact with families who purchase our puppies.
