Toy & Miniature Poodle
We breed with both Pure bred Toy and pure bred Miniature Poodles. Beside the size these two breeds are very similar in character. A toy poodle will have a mature height (at the withers) up to 28cm/11inches and a miniature poodle between 28cm/11inches and 38cm/15inches.
An excellent family dog and very much a inside dog, they want to be with you all the time and happy to do whatever you are doing.
The poodle is one of the most intelligent breeds, however just because they are adorable doesn't mean they don't need structure and routine, as with all dogs they are happier when they know the boundaries.
A poodles coat is non shedding, so one of the best breeds for people with allergies. There will be no hairs on your black coat, nor on your couch or carpet. The poodles coat is like wool and continues to grow. They need regular brushing of the coat and a trip to the groomer 3 to 4 times a year, a good groomer will attend to the hair in their ears, the toenails and anal glands.
Poodles are excellent family dogs and great with children, but personality differs within each litter. Some pups are cautious and some are very bold, ideally you should spend some time observing the pups to see which has the temperament that will suit your family, if you are buying interstate then discuss this with me.
Poodles come in a variety of colours, including:
solid colours - white, cream, brown/chocolate, apricot, red, black, silver, silver beige, cafe au lait and blue.
multi colours - brindle, sable, Ticking, parti, phantom, tuxedo, mismark/abstract
The price of our toy and mini poodles is $4000
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
The Cavalier King Charles is a very sweet gentle family dog and another breed that wants to be with you all the time .Energy levels can differ between dogs but they are usually not a high energy dog, that being said every dog needs to be exercised and this is an essential aspect of owning a dog.
The Cavalier is an inside dog and would not be happy to be kept outside while the family is in. The coat will shed and requires grooming with attention to the ears as these are the first to matt. They are great with other dogs and cats and will sleep in the same bed.
Cavaliers come in a variety of colours, including:
Black & Tan, Ruby, Blenheim, Tricolour

The Cavoodle is fast becoming one of the most popular breeds in Australia. With the sweet nature of the Cavalier King Charles and the intelligence and loyalty of the Poodle this makes a wonderful family dog.
The Cavoodle - like the Cavalier and the Poodle - is an inside dog and would not be happy to be kept outside while the family is in, however if you are outside that is where they want to be , there happy place is with you.
The coat is low shedding - if you want non shedding you need to go with a full poodle - and the degree of shedding varies between dogs. Most cavoodle owners will say that they do not notice shedding at all.
The coat does require attention, a trip to the groomers every 8 to 12 weeks as well as regular combing out. You can clip the dogs yourself, the coat is very forgiving when you make mistakes!!
Cavoodles enjoy the company of other dogs and or cats and will play constantly with them, sleeping in the same bed.

The Border Collie is a very different breed to the other breeds we work with. A super intelligent breed , like the Poodle , but the Border Collie is a little different as it needs a purpose in life and a job to do. Be that looking after the kids or guarding the chickens or being your jogging buddy the Border Collie needs a job. They make the great family pets but do not cope with being left on their own nor being ignored. If you do not supply this mental stimulation, and training, for your Border Collie you will have a very restless , destructive dog.
The Border Collies that we breed so not come from working lines so they are not extremely high energy dogs but that being said need to be well exercised and your ability to be able to provide these needs to be taken into consideration when thinking about getting one of these dogs. They need to be included in your family life.
The coats do not require clipping but do need to be brushed out regularly, especially the long haired Border Collies , as they will become matted at when winter turns to summer the undercoat will need to be stripped out. This can be done your self or taken to a groomer.
The price of our Border Collies is $3500
