Hi, I'm Jo S.
A passionate pet breeder on the South Coast of NSW. As a full member of the AAPDB (adhering to their strict guidelines and vet audits) and ethical breeder, I am passionate about providing families with a healthy, happy puppy (including full DNA testing of parents). I pride myself on my communication with new owners and offer ongoing support and guidance for as long as they need me. We believe in matching the right puppies with the right families, so for this reason we do not let people choose their puppy (or the puppy choose them lol) until they are 5-7 weeks of age.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
Monty's moodle pups are given the best start possible to life. Initially, we focus on 'early neurological stimulation' which research shows creates puppies / dogs who can handle stress better. After this, puppies are introduced to a range of stimuli, including physical, visual and auditory, both inside and out and we have the coolest 'puppy fun zones' ever. Puppies are handled regularly by myself and my 3 children and interact…
All Montys Moodles breeding dogs are dna tested for all possible breed related genetic diseases to give peace of mind to our buyers. We offer a 12 month genetic health guarantee on our puppies (meaning you will get a full refund if you return the puppy if the puppy is seen as 'unacceptable for health reasons' based on a genetic issue by a veterinarian * conditions apply as per our sales contract).
We live on a gorgeous acreage on the south coast of NSW. All my dogs and puppies are treated as valued / loved members of our family or are given homes by carefully selected 'guardian' families', meaning they have their loving forever homes from word go. Our love for our dogs is deep and for this reason, we offer a 'lifetime' rehoming policy on all the puppies we sell. We will either keep the dog or find another suitable, loving home…
Included with our puppies
I provide all my puppy parents with a comprehensive folder of puppy and training information, as well as a puppy pack (items can vary) and $100.00 desexing voucher.

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.
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.
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.
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
I am lucky enough to live on a large property on the beautiful South Coast of NSW with a husband and my 3 gorgeous children (aged 11, 12 and 13) which has allowed me to fulfil my life long dream to become a dog 'breeder'. Breeding is my biggest passion in life and is, by far, my favourite thing to spend time doing. I am also a BAS Agent which fits in perfectly with my breeding as I work from home and can put as much time and energy into my dogs and puppies as needed.
Why we got involved in breeding
My husband was never a 'doggy' person and it took quite a lot of convincing before he finally agreed to me getting our first puppy. Due to his pedantic clean nature, I researched breeds that were low shedding and easy going, which is when i discovered moodles. This is when we bought 'Monty' the moodle and within 2 weeks of owning him my husband was completely besotted and the dog has been 'his' dog ever since. I decided that any breed of dog that could turn my husband into a dog lover, was definitely something special. We have been breeding moodles for the past few years and have now expanded to include Cavoodles, which is another breed that has totally won us over with their beautiful temperaments.
Our special touch
As a responsible breeder, I follow high ethical standards, including having a very thorough yearly vet audit done on my property, administration and dogs each year. I continually challenge myself as a breeder to learn more and extend my knowledge. Through reading / researching and collaborating with other breeders / vets, I believe I have gained (and will continue to gain)an excellent understanding of dog behaviour / training and good breeding practices. I pride myself on the communication and support I offer my puppies' families, going above and beyond to make sure the puppies transition to their new families goes as smoothly as possible. Not only do I supply a comprehensive written guide to caring for and training your new puppy, I also continue to support families for as long as they need it after they take their special bundle home. This is not just a 'transaction' for me, each new family is welcomed into the 'Montys Moodles and Cavoodles' family (we even have our own dedicated facebook page so people can catch up with siblings and share ideas / stories or concerns with other owners).
