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, and 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. We breed Australian Labradoodles in three sizes - Standard, Medium and Miniature. Labaradoodles are relatively high energy dogs - very easy to train (but do require both mental and psychical stimulation to help prevent unwanted behaviour) and incredibly intuitive. They can pick up on your mood and know just what to do.

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 Labradoodles conducts 2 out of 2 core health tests which RightPaw believe are most important to conduct for the Australian Labradoodle.
These breeders have had x-rays taken on their breeding dogs to assess their ‘hip score’. Dogs with…
Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) in dogs is a type of genetic eye disease causing deterioration…
Belloui Labradoodles conducts 15 additional tests available for the Australian Labradoodle.
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 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.
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.
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.
These breeders have had x-rays taken on their breeding dogs to assess the quality of their elbow joints. Dogs with very low ‘elbow scores’ are less likely to develop elbow problems in the future and less likely to pass hereditary elbow problems on to their puppies.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
