FAQs

Do your puppies come with papers?

Your puppy comes complete with their health/vaccination booklet, desexing certificate and a signed copy of our Health Guarantee. This is included within your comprehensive puppy pack. However, Cavoodles and Spoodles are not a recognised breed with the AKC, therefore registration papers are not included.

Are you a registered breeder?

Yes. NT Oodles are full members of the Australian Association of Pet Dog Breeders. Our member number is 16136. This membership enforces our commitment to breed happy and healthy pet dogs and also requires that we undertake annual animal focused, quality assurance welfare audits carried out by an independent practicing veterinarian.

Is there a differences in personality between males and females?

There are certain characteristics prevalent in each gender. For example, males marking their territory or “cocking” their leg and females coming into season on a regular basis. These characteristics are eliminated when desexed early. At NT Oodles, we believe that personality and temperament is purely individual, rather than due to their gender.

Are your Cavoodles and Spoodles non-shedding?

One of the most popular traits in the Poodle breeds is their “non shedding” coat. When breeding Cavoodles and Spoodles with pure bred Poodles, we guarantee that this trait will carry through, however the amount will vary depending on the individual dog.

We don’t believe that anyone could ever guarantee a fully non-shedding coat but we do guarantee that your Cavoodle or Spoodle will shed very little. This makes your decision to purchase a Cavoodle or Spoodle excellent if you have a family member with allergies but also for keeping your fur baby as an inside pet.

How much grooming is required for Cavoodles and Spoodles?

With the proper care and maintenance, the Cavoodle and Spoodle coat is actually quite easy to maintain. We recommend regular brushing and ensuring you are getting knots out from the base of the coat (as this is where matting occurs). Regular grooming is required, we generally recommend this occurs every 8-12 weeks depending on speed of hair growth and how short/long you like it kept.

Will my Cavoodle/Spoodle get along with small children?

Cavoodles and Spoodles make excellent companions for any type of family whether it be with or without children. They are playful and energetic yet gentle and tender. Their pure bred parents are all excellent with children therefore this parental influence guarantees it will exist within the breed.

We guarantee that your puppy will be well socialized and given the best start to life however, like any puppy, time and attention needs to be put into them to ensure they are well behaved and trusted around which ever family members you have. The benefit of training a Cavoodle/Spoodle is that they have the sweetest natures, are smart and respond well to training. Fun and positive reinforcement is the key to success.

What is a first generaton Cavoodle/Spoodle?

First generation puppies are bred from pure bred parents (i.e. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Toy Poodle). Second generation puppies result from the mating of two first generation dogs (i.e. Cavoodle and Cavoodle). F1b puppies are the result of breeding an F1 to a pure bred dog (i.e. first generation Cavoodle and pure-bred Toy Poodle).

Given our breeding experience and knowledge of our parents, our first-generation puppies are very consistent in temperament, looks and overall health.

Health guarantee & DNA testing

At NT Oodles, we breed puppies of only the best quality, with a great temperament and ready for life with their new families. Our puppies are all given a thorough vet check at 6-8 weeks of age, provided with the first of their three vaccinations, wormed regularly and are in good health.

All of our parents are clinically health checked annually, clearing them of any conditions that can’t be tested for through DNA (for example, MVD, luxating patellas).

We also complete a full DNA test to ensure our dogs are clear of any genetic diseases prevalent in the breed. In particular, our Poodle Sires are tested and clear of Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA) which causes blindless and is particularly prevalent in the Poodle breed.

We provide an extensive Health Guarantee at the time of purchasing an NT Oodles Puppy as protection for you as the buyer and to ensure common understanding at the time of sale.

Therapy dogs

Our puppies are produced and raised with calm, friendly and placid temperaments. This makes them an exceptional choice for therapy dogs. ‘A Therapy Dog refers to a dog that has been trained for the purpose of promoting wellbeing, for example by providing a calming presence.’

At NT Oodles, a number of our puppies are currently being used as therapy dogs in schools across Australia. Just a couple of examples indicating the work that they do:

Dougal the Therapy Dog

Dougal joins the Assistant Principal on duty every morning at 8 am. Any children with emotional problems get dropped off at that side. Everybody gives him a stroke and any children upset, take him a little walk.

Following this, Dougal will usually go to a classroom that has requested him. He has a portable bed.

In the room, he tends to just sleep next to whoever he is supporting. His presence alone, clams down the students and the classes love having him.

Just before recess, Dougal is walked back to the office by two students on his lead and harness.

He will the rest in the office of the Assistant Principal. He does not wear his lead but always has a symbol that he is a Therapy dog (collar or bandana).

Many students throughout the day will come and see Dougal. He will often sit in the sickbay with students or go for a walk in the afternoon with students that are having a bad day.

Dougal goes on duty at the end of the day and sits at the gate with the students waiting to be picked up.

Dougal has also attended many community events, sports carnivals, masses, daycare centres etc…
