A HUGE final Happy Mother’s Day to all our mums!

We have focused on a few different mums and thoughts this week to showcase our mums here at Banksia Park Puppies. On today, we say a big Happy Mother’s Day to all our mums here living with us at Banksia Park Puppies, as well as those that we have rehomed into homes throughout Victoria (and further in some cases!). We also say a big happy Mother’s Day to all the human mums of our Banksia Park Puppies. Thank you for keeping us involved in their lives and their personalities. We love seeing the photos and hearing the stories!


As a last note on this Mother’s Day week, we hope that wherever you got your puppy from that you know who your puppy’s mum is, and the conditions your mum grew up and lives in. We hope that everyone who looks for a puppy is mindful of where mum (and dad) lives and that we can all work together to promote open, transparent, ethical breeding. Ask questions, visit first hand, and remember – for the sake of all our furry mums – choose ethically.

Banksia Park Puppies Nursery Refurbishment

Here at Banksia Park Puppies we have recently done a huge refurbishment on our nurseries. If you came for a tour a few months ago, it will look very different to how it did then! We always want to make sure that our mums and puppies are nice and warm, and looked after as best they can be. Before winter arrived on us, we insulated all our nurseries and put new Canara wood heaters through them all. We always had wood heaters in there for the winter months, but now we have lovely new Canaras which also have fans to make sure the heat spreads throughout the entire nursery. This, along with our heated floors, helps mums who are giving birth or pregnant to be as comfortable as possible, as well as new puppies keep warm and toasty during the cold nights and mornings out here in Gippsland. To make our nurseries look even more interesting for our dogs and growing puppies, we even had an artist come in and paint some murals on the walls!

So while you are all snug and warm in your beds, Matt and Colin take it in turns through the cold winter nights to ensure that the puppies and mums are also snug and warm, the heaters are roaring, and the mums are all healthy during labour.

Here are some photos of our updated nurseries.
