Hi, I'm Kerry W.

At this time there are no puppies available and no waitlist. Website and this site will be updated when puppies are available. I live with​,​ work with and love being with my dogs. I am a dog trainer​,​ a Raw Food Dog Nutritionist​,​ an advocator of understanding The Pack mentality of dogs and spend many hours watching and learning all about them. I raise my puppies as nature intended and support my older dogs to be wonderful companions. All of my many secrets are shared with my dogs over 60 odd years​,​ many tears shared and lots of laughter. They have been with me for the sad​,​ hard and joyous times and have always been there when no one else was. They support me as I support them. Ausmate only have 1​,​ maybe 2 litters per year and the demand is high. Puppies will be advertised on the website however we don't take a Waitlist until puppies are born.

Our Breeding Practices

Behaviour and socialisation

After being born in the house under 24​/​7 care​,​ puppies are relocated to the Nursery at around 4 weeks of age. This allows them to have a new environment to learn about life in​,​ different smells and sights. After their first vaccination they then move into the dedicated puppy yard to play on swing sets​,​ sandpits​,​ ball pits​,​ play gyms​,​ swimming pool and to experience all the outside noises and smells that we have on our 20 acres of…

Health

All Breeding dogs are fully DNA tested and only those which are deemed acceptable​,​ are used within the breeding pool. Their DNA results are noted on their Pedigree.

Home environment

I believe that a Dam should raise her puppies so they are never removed from their puppies until the pups leave for their new homes. My Dams choose when (if) to wean their puppies and whilst they are fed a natural species appropriate RAW diet​,​ the Dam will always give them her milk to ensure they have the best of everything.

Included with our puppies

Puppies come with a comprehensive Puppy Pack with full dietary details​,​ vaccination and microchipping details​,​ CAR registration​,​ NSW Pet Registry​,​ grooming​,​ training​,​ development and lots more information to ensure the new owners are fully informed of how best to raise their new puppy.

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.

Congenital Macrothromobocytopaenia (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.

Congenital Macrothrombocytopaenia (CM)

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.

Cystinuria

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.

Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)

dna iconGenetic Test

Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC) is a genetic condition mainly affecting Retrievers and Spaniels. It results in the dog collapsing after periods of intense exercise, even if they are normally able to cope with lower levels of exercise. There is a DNA test available which can indicate if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.

EIC

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.

HNPK

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.

A heart certificate indicates a breeder has had their breeding dogs declared free from common heart conditions which might be passed down genetically to the puppies. This can be done by auscultation or echocardiography with a veterinary cardiologist, or by echocardiography with a GP vet. Common heart conditions include Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) and Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease (MMVD).

Mucopolysaccharidosis is a genetic lysosomal storage disease that can cause various problems including stunted growth and bone deformities. There are a few different variants of this disease that have been identified in different breeds. For many breeds there are DNA tests available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying the condition.

MPS

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.

Myotubular Myopathy X-Linked

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.

Dogs affected by patellar luxation have loose kneecaps that may pop in and out of the knee joint, which can be painful and even require surgery. Having a vet examine breeding dogs for patellar luxation can confirm the dog is not affected, and that their puppies are less likely to develop the condition. Patellar luxation is more common in smaller breeds.

Patellar Luxation

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.

Skeletal Dysplasia

dna iconGenetic Test

Von Willebrand’s Disease (VWD/vWD) is a genetic bleeding disorder caused by a lack of a specific clotting factor. There are three forms of the disease, types 1, 2 & 3. A DNA test is available for each type of VWD to identify whether a breeding dog is a carrier or might be affected. The severity of VWD varies widely between breeds and individuals, ranging from life threatening, through to having no impact on clotting ability.

About the breeder

A little about us

My dogs are my passion. I was lucky enough to be a member of the PAL Superdog Team, working closely with my dogs in the public eye, training and sharing all the wonderful things a dog can bring to our lives. Being able to live with them and bring puppies into the World is a blessing I don't take lightly. I spend many hours every day talking to my owners or talking to prospective owners who are considering owning one of my puppies. I live and work from home so am able to spend all my time either with or watching my dogs. It is surprising how much a human can learn by watching a dog just being, rather than always interfering. I know my dogs, I spend lots of time with my dogs and every one of them brings me joy and pleasure every day and being able to breathe in puppy breath is one of the very best things that can be enjoyed. The two dogs in my profile image were my first Obedience Champion and first Conformation Champion.

Why we got involved in breeding

After I discovered conformation showing it became a natural progression to want to breed with my winning dogs. I spent many hours at the elbow of a couple of amazing dog mentors who not only gave me their time but shared their valuable knowledge with me. I continue to study to ensure I am up-to-date with the latest news and theories on the very best way to raise my precious dogs. I don't sit on my laurels - I continue to work to be a better Breeder, a better trainer and a better owner.

Our special touch

I am very much about The Pack. I believe that dogs learn better and live happier when they have their Pack around them. I am their Pack Leader and as a strong, confident person they know they are cared for and that they can trust in my judgement and direction. Puppies go to their new homes needing a strong, confident Pack to live in and I can assist new owners in providing this for them. You will find so much more about me on my website.
