FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Do you supply pet shops?
A: No we only supply our puppies direct to the public and have never sold to or supplied a pet shop.
Q: I have heard that puppies should not be desexed at 8 - 9 weeks of age. Why do you desex them at
A: Desexing at this age is the best thing for the puppy. The RSPCA advocates the early desexing of puppies prior to sale by breeder. This link to an RSPCA webpage provides more information about early desexing. The page heading mentions cats, but please view the report linked at the bottom of the page. The opening statement in the conclusion of the report says -
"Based on the available scientific evidence and extensive RSPCA experience performing EAD, the RSPCA considers EAD to be a safe and effective strategy to prevent unintended litters of cats and dogs."

Q: Do you sell Poodles, Cocker Spaniels, Labradors, Maltese or Schnauzers?
A: No, we use these dogs to breed Labradoodles, Spoodles, Schnoodles and Maltese Poodles.
Q: Are you a registered breeder?
A: Yes, we are registered with the government. We are not 'backyard breeders' and have many years experience breeding dogs. The requirements in Victoria for registered breeders are the strictest in Australia, and we exceed all requirements and are subject to regular inspections by our local shire ranger. Unfortunately some states do not even require breeders to be registered, allowing substandard facilities to be used.
Q: Where is the height of your dogs measured from?
A: From the shoulder.
Q: What happens to your dogs that are no longer used for breeding?
A: At 4 to 6 years of age we retire our breeders. They are de-sexed and enjoy their retirement in living in family homes.
Q: What age do you breed your dogs from?
A: 18 months to 2 years of age is when we start to breed our females. At this age they are no longer a puppy they have had time to develop.
Q: How many litters of puppies does a female have in her breeding life?
A: We only breed 1 litter a year from our female dogs. So depending on the age of retirement a female would have 2-4 litters before they are desexed and retired into family homes.
