I adhere to Dogs New Zealand Breeders Code of Conduct.

Because my passion is dog sports (obedience and Rally O), breeding for temperament is of paramount importance to me. To aid in producing well rounded, confident pups I follow the Puppy Culture program.

The first 16 weeks is the period in which comprehensive socialisation will have the greatest impact. You can commence/continue socialisation beyond this age but progress will be much slower. Socialisation involves so much more than introducing your puppy to people and dogs. Click here for a socialisation guide and check list.

I also place great importance in ensuring genetic diversity in my breeding programme. My litters will all have a maximum pedigree COI (coefficient of inbreeding) score of 10.

Wait List Application


We welcome your wait list request which will require payment of a $200 deposit to confirm.

The deposit is fully refundable prior to mating date should you change your mind. Thereafter it is refundable only if we cannot supply a puppy to you.

Your place on the wait list will be determined by the date your deposit is received

We strongly recommend that you arrange to visit us to meet our dogs and satisfy yourself that you are happy with their temperament.

If you are not yet ready to confirm a wait list request keep an eye on our website and facebook pages to see our breeding plans.


Please complete this form with as much detail as possible as when we come to temperament test puppies in a litter (at 7 weeks) we can then determine the best puppy/owner match.
