How do I get on a waiting list?

Are puppies Hypoallergenic?

Our pups have 2 different types of coats. Wavy shaggy (fleece) to curly (wool). We base our breeding program on the genetics of our parents and aim to always produce low shedding to non shedding puppies. For people with allergies or asthma we recommend a curly (wool) coat puppy.

What health testing do you perform?

All our breeding dogs are selected for their clear DNA panels and excellent temperaments. Our breeding dogs are genetically tested through Embark and Orivet. This way we can offer our families a puppy that is free from hereditary diseases. Our breeding parents are tested for all breed specific illnesses.

Where are the puppies born?

Our puppies are born in our home and are lovingly nurtured from birth. We have a designated outdoor play run that puppies experience at 6 weeks. Pups have rest times in our home and play on the outdoor deck on warmer days. We follow the Bad Ass Breeder curriculum based program and aim to raise strong, confident and well adjusted puppies.

When can I take my puppy out?

It is important not to take your puppy into public spaces until they have
completed all of their immunisations. Parvo virus is deadly to puppies and
can be contracted in any space where other dogs have been.

I live interstate, can I organise travel?

Our pups fly interstate and internationally.  We use Dogtainers as our travel specialists.  For a very reasonable price pups can safely be transported all around the world.

Do you allow visitation?

At Brisbane Groodles and Spoodles we hold puppy picking day at 6 weeks once we have completed puppy evaluations and puppy bonding days at 5,6 and 7 weeks. During these visits we open our home to families so that they can bond with their newest family member.
