How many litters do your dogs have?

Our breeding girls who do pass our testing will only ever have three litters as a maximum. Some of these girls live with us but others go off to their forever families at 8/9 weeks when they leave their own mothers. These dogs then come back to us for holidays so we can see how they are maturing and that they still have the traits we want to pass on for our pups.

This is a good option for our dogs as they are always in-home environments part of a family, we believe this helps with the overall quality for their entire life which is what we want for them.

What testing do you do for your dogs?

We complete full DNA testing on all our dogs prior to breeding.
Our purebred foundation dogs also have further testing with Hip and Elbow testing.

What colours do you have?

We breed all different colours, Black, Apricot, Cream, Chocolate and sometimes we do have multicoloured pups

Breeds

Groodle

What is a Groodle?
The Groodle is a cross between of a purebred Poodle and a purebred Golden Retriever.

Poodle – Descriptions include intelligent, loving, loyal and mischievous are just some of the words Poodle enthusiasts commonly use to describe the breeds personality. The Poodle is also known for what his fans call “an air of distinction” or a dignified attitude that’s hard to describe but easy to spot in the dog. They are known as companion dogs but were originally bred for hunting. The lifespan of the Poodle is 11-15 years and depending on size Toy, Mini or Standard their weight will vary. Poodles are a breed that require regular maintenance for their grooming.
Golden Retrievers – they are the classic family companion. Obedient, playful, intelligent, well-mannered, great with kids, and kindly to strangers. They are good watchdogs, but not as a guard dog as they love people far too much to be effective. Golden Retrievers can be at the top of their obedience classes and are often the champions of sporting competitions, however this is a breed that needs people.
Groodles often carry both characteristics and are highly intelligent, gentle, very social dogs who love to be around people, they enjoy pleasing their humans but also letting it be known if they are feeling neglected. Many Groodles have light to non-shedding coats, which makes them ideal for anyone who may have allergies. I do not recommend any dog to be left in a yard with little to no interaction, they are by nature a pack animal and if you own any dog you are considered to be their pack and as such need they need to be an active daily participant in your life.
Age:10-15years
Weight: Standard Groodle 25-45kgs Mini Groodle 15-20kgs
Weight can vary depending on the parents size.

Bernadoodle

What is a Bernadoodle:
This a cross between purebred Bernese Mountain Dog and the Poodle.

Poodle – Descriptions include intelligent, loving, loyal and mischievous are just some of the words Poodle enthusiasts commonly use to describe the breeds personality. The Poodle is also known for what his fans call “an air of distinction” or a dignified attitude that’s hard to describe but easy to spot in the dog. They are known as companion dogs but were originally bred for hunting. The lifespan of the Poodle is 11-15 years and depending on size Toy, Mini or Standard their weight will vary.

Bernese Mountain Dog – A big sized working dog from the farmlands of Switzerland. Bernese mountain dog is the only dog with long hair in four types of Swiss Mountain dogs. It is also known as Burner, or Bernese cattle dog. It is a working dog used to pull carts, drive cattle and protect the family members. Berner is well-known as one of the best dogs having a particularly good temperament. Berners are affectionate, loyal, and intelligent. Their lifespan is comparatively short. There are some health issues in the Berners, that is why there veterinary can be costly. The main problem of this breed is shedding.

Beradoodles – We believe they inherit the clever goofiness of the poodle and kind, a friendly and loyal behaviour of the Bernese Mountain Dog. These two breeds originated from the same part of the world, the Berner from Switzerland, and the Poodle native to France and Germany. Due to its buttoned eyes and nose, fluffy and silky coat.

Cavoodles can be good guard dogs as they may bark when visitors arrive, however are not aggressive. They can be quite vocal and prone to separation anxiety was early socialisation and training is a must. It is best to feed them a dry mix to help prevent tartar build up on their teeth.

They are also just as at home as your lap dog so can be great for any aged of family. They are affectionate, undemanding and easy to train family dog. They are excellent with children and the elderly. They are not excessive barkers but will announce strangers. They are no guard dogs however, as they greet most people warmly. Cavaliers get along with everyone, including cats and other small pets.

Grooming – Cavaliers should be groomed thoroughly once a week. The nails and the hair between the pads of the feet should be trimmed once a month. This is a shedding dog but good grooming should keep the hair load on your furniture fairly low. Special attention must be given to the ears are they are drop ears and there is very little air circulation. No trimming is necessary and is, indeed, disallowed for the show ring.
