A Birthday at Banksia Park Puppies

A Banksia Park Puppies Day Out


A little while ago we had a request for a visit to Banksia Park Puppies simply as a day out rather than to tour for the purpose of buying a Banksia Park Puppy.

The request was lovely saying that they have a daughter who just loves puppies and asking if they could come down and spend the day here playing with our Banksia Park Puppies! We thought that was such a lovely thing to do and it of course would benefit our puppies here through additional socialisation, so it was all agreed and a couple of weeks ago they came down for the day.

The day started with a full tour of our property. We showed the group the live in yards, the Agility Park, and through both our Birthing Nursery and our bigger nurseries for the older puppies. This was integral so that the group was fully comfortable with our property and our breeding before they sat down and played with the (cute/adorable/gorgeous/fall-in-love-with) puppies! After this they came down and played in our yard with the puppies for the day and all through the afternoon. They also stopped for a little while (and gave the puppies a break) to sing happy birthday with one of the most AMAZING cakes I’ve ever seen!

Isn’t this AMAZING?! (It was delicious too)

It was a great day. The puppies had a ball and I’m sure they were very tired that night!

At Banksia Park Puppies we really like to show that we are open and transparent, and give complete tours of our property to all potential customers. An added benefit this day though, was not only did the group and the puppies have a good day, we did too, and we met these wonderful people as well!

It was interesting to talk to them too about how some of the girls were in VCE and how they would love to be able to play with puppies during their VCE as it helps with stress. It’s a pity we’re a little bit far away!

Here is a little bit of their lovely email to us the next day, and then a few photos of the day.

“Matt, Kirstin and staff.

We are back in Melbourne now unfortunately and , even though we spent just 6 hours with you there, we will never forget the trip to Banksia Puppies.  

As we drove away, Brittany and Jess said , “that was the best day of my life”…   Out of the mouth of babes!!.     It was exactly as I hoped and imagined.

We thank you so much for the tour and the wonderful relaxing afternoon on the lawn with the puppies.   Melissa had the best day and most memorable birthday ever.  Her friends were so jealous and are all confirmed for the next visit!!   The teens wanted to spend today with you again!!”

A Banksia Park Puppies Party!

The party at Banksia Park Puppies

At Banksia Park Puppies we were host to our kids’ birthdays over the weekend@ We had our little boy’s (1st) and little girl’s (3rd) joined birthday party here over the weekend. All of the kids at the party were ecstatic to be playing with our puppies here at Banksia Park Puppies! We had various groups of puppies here over the weekend and the kids had a great time! The young ones were played with in the hay play pen and they were exhausted after a short time playing! Then we had a few older groups come and play, and the older kids helped us play with them both in the agility yard, and around the park! We also put leads on the older puppies and had a good walk around and play with them all. It was fantastic for the kids and the puppies. The kids love playing with dogs and especially new little ones, and our dogs benefit from so much attention from kids! We focus this time on our puppies within the critical socialisation period, they benefit enormously from contact with so many kids! They spend alot of their weeks with our socialisation staff, and with the kids who come for after school jobs, but a party with kids is a different thing altogether and great for them and their growing minds (the kids AND the puppies!).

Here is a gallery of the fun we all had over the weekend.

The puppies we played with were:

Young puppies:

Swoosh, Ariel, Sharon, Sherry,

Older puppies:

WillBee, Sage, Halo, Starlet and Sooty.
