Our Breeding Practices

Behaviour and socialisation

My puppies are exposed to many noises including flapping bags, flags, sirens, traffic, animal sounds, musical instruments, crying children, and more. They are also introduced to different surfaces, and allowed to explore them in their own time. My puppies meet many children and adults throughout their first 12…

Health

My puppies are fed a high-quality diet with variety to help their development. They are wormed every 2 weeks, and started on flea/tick prevention as soon as they are old enough. I also take a huge amount of time to ensure positive development of my puppies' mental health. I work hard to ensure that all…

Home environment

My puppies are raised indoors for the first approx. 4 weeks of their lives. After this, they are moved to an outdoor environment, with access to above ground bedding which is always dry and cosy. The mix of indoor and outdoor time for the puppies allows for their own physical, mental, and emotional development to…

dna iconGenetic Test

Congenital Myasthenic Syndrome (CMS) is genetic disease that causes extreme muscle weakness after just a short amount of exercise. It can result in puppies or dogs who collapse after only five to thirty minutes of exercise. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Canine Elliptocytosis is a rare genetic disease causing the red blood cells to be abnormally elliptical in shape, rather than round. It generally does not cause a clinical problem to affected dogs, but puppies may be mildly anaemic and smaller than others. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

dna iconGenetic Test

Centronuclear myopathy (CNM), is a genetic muscle disease that occurs in Labradors. A DNA test is available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Cone degeneration is a genetic eye disease that results in ‘day blindness’, extreme sensitivity to light, and poor vision. The condition begins in puppies and gradually worsens as they get older. There are various types of cone degeneration in the dog, including Achromatopsia. There is a DNA test available in certain breeds to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Congenital Macrothrombocytopenia (CM) is a mild disease which normally does not have any impact on an affected dog’s health or lifespan but can cause concern if noticed on routine bloodwork without knowing the cause. It is a blood disease resulting in low numbers of very large platelets. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

This condition mainly affects Newfoundlands although other breeds can be affected. It is a genetic condition which results in the production of kidney and bladder stones. There is a DNA test available to confirm that breeding dogs are not carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

dna iconGenetic Test

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a genetic skin disease. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

dna iconGenetic Test

Hereditary Nasal Parakeratosis (HNPK) is a genetic condition that can affect Labradors. It causes very dry and crusty skin around the nose that predisposes to infections. There is a DNA test available to determine whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Hyperuricosuria (HUU) is a genetic disease that causes a build-up of uric acid in the urine, predisposing to painful bladder and kidney stones. It can occur in a range of breeds. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

dna iconGenetic Test

Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a rare genetic condition that causes adverse reactions to anaesthetic drugs. It results in the body rapidly overheating and is sometimes fatal. There is now a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Macular Corneal Dystrophy (MCD) is a rare genetic eye disease that has been identified in Labradors. It causes cloudy eyes and potential vision impairment. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

X-linked myotubular myopathy (XLMTM) is an inherited muscle disease causing severe, progressive muscle atrophy in puppies. Affected puppies are small and lack coordination. Within weeks, the puppies may have difficulty holding their head up or standing and may collapse after exertion. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog might be carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Narcolepsy is a genetic disease which causes affected animals to fall asleep suddenly following periods of excitement, such a feeding or play. These dogs might collapse and appear drowsy or might completely fall asleep. They usually grow out of the condition after about one year of age. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency (PKD) is a genetic disorder resulting in low levels of an energy-producing enzyme in the body. Affected dogs can experience lethargy, exercise intolerance and severe anaemia. There is a DNA available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Skeletal Dysplasia is an inherited form of dwarfism which causes the leg bones to grow much shorter than is proportional for the body. Affected legs will be short and slightly bowed outwards. Often the forelimbs are more affected than the hindlimbs, which can make the condition more difficult to spot in subtle cases. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

dna iconGenetic Test

Stargardt Disease, also known as Juvenile Macular Degeneration, is a genetic eye disease that causes gradual degeneration of the retina. This can cause blurred vision and difficulty seeing when moving quickly from bright to low light. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.

About the Breeder

A little about us

Hello! I am a reward-based dog trainer living on the NSW south coast. I love dogs, and always have, and I love spending my days with my dogs and puppies. I am constantly learning more about dogs, and their brilliance and intelligence always amazes me. My dogs all live in my house with me, and I wouldn't have it any…

Why we got involved in breeding

The main reason I got into breeding was to try and improve on the initial experiences puppies have. I pride myself on raising healthy, level-headed, confident puppies with a positive outlook on life, and beautiful manners to top it all off. I firmly believe that the key to minimising potential mental/behavioural…

Our special touch

I work hard to find a balance between lots of attention/time, and independent development and confidence. My puppies love people and their company, however are comfortable to be left alone and are unlikely to develop separation issues. My puppies will also go home with you, and sleep through the night right from the…
