Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
At Kabova each dog is a member of the family, running our acres, and spending time with us on a daily basis. We believe that socialisation is very important. Each Kabova dog is well socialised in order to make them a better family member. Our puppies are raised inside our home where they have 24 hour supervision and care. They are also raised with our 18 month old daughter who is very loving and gentle with the puppies.
Here at Kabova we combine Australian lines with some of the best from the USA and Europe to ensure you get a genetically diverse puppy you can be proud of. Our Pugs are Health tested for PK, PDE, PLL and DM. Of course breathing and overall health is paramount to our breathing program.

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.
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.
May-Hegglin Anomaly (MHA) is a rare blood disease that results in low numbers of platelets and the presence of abnormal, giant platelets. It can cause clotting abnormalities and bleeding. 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.
About the breeder
A little about us
I have had pugs since my early 20’s. They are most certainly my passion. As well as showing I love to judge all breeds. I am currently licensed to Judge the Toy, Gundog, Hound, Working Dog, Utility and Non-Sporting Groups. I am not far off completing my final group... Terriers. I have had the privilege of judging all over Australia and in New Zealand, Norway, Japan and South Africa. I have judged Pugs in each of these countries.
Why we got involved in breeding
I have always loved Pugs from when I was a little girl. I grew up with other breeds, but when I moved out of home, and completed my University degree, I was able to finally get a Pug. I have had them ever since. In 2014, I fell in love with Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and now have a few of these wonderful breed. I have bred a multi BEST IN SHOW winner and two RUP BEST IN SHOW winners.
Our special touch
My love and lifetime dedication to the breed is clear when you meet me. Known as a breed specialist around the world, I recently gave an in-depth talk on Pugs for the Madras Kennel Club in India.
