Hi, I'm Nicole G.
Welcome to Belloui Labradoodles! We are a Brisbane-based kennel specialising in Labradoodles, Cavoodles, Moodles, and Sheepadoodles. Our objective is to breed healthy, well-tempered beautiful family companions. We expose our pups to enriching experiences appropriate to their age, and we use temperament testing to match puppies to families to support the best fit of the puppy to your lifestyle. We also breed therapy dogs so temperament testing is vitally important for dogs that will continue on to be trained as an assistance or therapy dog. The puppies are all raised in our family home and are well socialised with our other animals, children and adults.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
We use “Puppy Culture” training to expose the pups to new sounds, sensations, textures, and experiences (see our videos on Instagram for examples of this). The puppies are also exposed to all of the animals that live with us, including chickens, ducks, geese, peacocks and cats with a view of the horses and alpaca's paddocks. They are used to all the usual household noises and plenty of outdoor noises from the animals. We have…
All puppies come wormed every two weeks, micro-chipped, vaccinated, flea and tick treated to date. Our breeding dogs are tested for all relevant genetic diseases and we only breed dogs with the right ‘family companion’ temperament. We hip score most of our breeding dogs.
The puppies are all raised in our family home and well-socialised with our other animals, children and adults. We live on 13 acres, however our dogs are family pets and live inside our house with us. We have 3 retired girls that live with us permanently - all of our current breeding dogs live in guardian homes.
Included with our puppies
6 weeks pet insurance through Petplan Health guarantee. Puppy pack that includes a toy and blanket with mum and litter mates scents, health record book from our vet Support for the life of the dog
Belloui Cavoodles conducts 0 out of 2 core health tests which RightPaw believe are most important to conduct for the Cavoodle.
Belloui Cavoodles conducts 13 additional tests available for the Cavoodle.
Congenital Dry Eye is a genetic cause of severe eye problems in Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppies. This disease is linked to Curly Coat Syndrome. Congenital Dry Eye is different from Acquired Dry Eye, which is a less severe eye disease that can develop in older dogs of many breeds. There is a DNA test available to identify if breeding Cavaliers are carrying Congenital Dry Eye or Curly Coat.
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.
This is a genetic condition affecting Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that causes severe skin, nail and eye issues, as well as making the usually long smooth coat tight and curly. Curly Coat is linked to Congenital Dry Eye disease. There is a DNA test available to identify if breeding Cavaliers are carrying Congenital Dry Eye or Curly Coat.
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.
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.
This is a genetic neurological condition affecting Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. It causes sudden stiffening of the legs, often causing the dog to fall over and be unable to move. There is a DNA test available to indicate if a breeding dog is carrying this disease. The test is also recommended in Cavoodles.
GM2 gangliosidosis is a lysosomal storage disorder that causes neurological problems. There are a few different types of this disease affecting different breeds. There is a DNA test available to identify if a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
These breeders have had x-rays taken on their breeding dogs to assess their ‘hip score’. Dogs with low hip scores have better hips and are less likely to develop problems in the future. Most large and medium sized dog breeds benefit from hip scoring to ensure they are unlikely to pass hereditary hip problems on to their puppies.
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.
Neonatal Encephalopathy (NE) is a brain disease that can occur in Standard Poodle puppies. There is a DNA test available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) in dogs is a type of genetic eye disease causing deterioration of the retina and eventually, blindness. There are a variety of sub-types of PRA, which can occur in various breeds. There are various DNA tests available to identify whether a breeding dog is carrying this condition.
Syringomyelia is a painful disease caused by pressure abnormalities when the skull is effectively too small for the brain. It is common in some lines of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. It is vital that breeders never breed from a dog who has shown any signs of the disease. Ideally, breeding dogs should be MRI scanned to prove they are free from the condition.
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
Hi, I'm Nicole from Belloui! We breed a lot of therapy dogs, therefore our temperament testing is critical, this will also mean you will have a dog best suited to your lifestyle, for a long and happy life together.
Why we got involved in breeding
Our passion for animals and interest in serving others inspired our decision to breed beautiful family companions.
Our special touch
We run a guardian program for our breeding dogs, so they don't have to be kennelled. They live with families as their cherished pet and come to us for breeding, where they live in our home with us while they are caring for their pups. We find this helps give the dog that beautiful temperament a family dog has, plus it is a wonderful environment for the dog.
