Our babies are raised in our lounge room in the centre of a large, noisy family, in country Gippsland. From around 4-5 weeks of age, they graduate to a large puppy play area outside, in a mentally stimulating environment, including a puppy play gym and splash pool.

Echocardiography is an accepted screening method via GP or cardiologist.

Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL) is a neurodegenerative disorder found in many breeds of dog. 7 varieties have been identified so far, affecting different breeds. There are DNA tests for each type, to identify whether a breeding dog might be carrying this condition.
