Jett the Cavoodle is 6 months old!

She has had her first groom and boy did she need it!

Her shedding stopped after the groom at 6 months and so we only had 2 months of light shedding while she moved into her adult coat. The change of colour is super interesting to watch. Our Jett actually got a little darker which was interesting – lots of puppies go lighter so its interesting to watch. You can certainly tell when they need their first groom – you can see their adult hair under the puppy hair very clearly and the puppy hair starts matting and is hard to keep under control. So if you think your puppy needs a groom it probably does – trust your gut! If you are taking your puppy to the groomer from early on they will give you advice as well.

Jett is now able to follow orders super well. We continue to use Ian’s ‘Uh-uh’ method and it works super well! She is always in my office while I work and knows she has to stay in her bed now (although she gets FOMO and wants to go outside if there is anything happening out there!). She is well behaved now and a pleasure to take places and have inside or out. She follows commands super easy. 6 months things seem to get a little easier – although she still steals a sock every time she is inside! and shoes… she loves shoes. Having a well trained dog has made having Jett a pleasure. Ian’s training (which we now give away complimentary with all puppies) is amazing and helps you just tweak your training to get a dog who follows your commands and who you just adore being with (along with good breeding of course!).

 

 

Our Lifetime Puppy Home Guarantee

Your puppy will ALWAYS be a Banksia Park Puppy

Your puppy – no matter how old – will always be a Banksia Park Puppy. He or she will hold a special place in our hearts for it’s entire life. We know it’s parents, we watched it be born, and we raised it and we watched it grow. We will forever hold it in our hearts as a Banksia Park Puppy.

We know you have waited for your puppy, researched him or her, and invested significantly to have him or her join your family. Even though we know that you are dedicated to your puppy right now, you have more than 10 years ahead of you with your puppy.

Sometimes circumstances change. Sometimes there is a death, a divorce, a move, or countless other things which could impact your ability to take care of this puppy.

Rehoming a Banksia Park Puppy

Whatever the reason, whatever the age, if you cannot take care of this puppy and you want to find a new home for him or her, we want you to contact us. 

Every single puppy is a Banksia Park Puppy for life. 

We have a very successful rehoming program, where new families of our dogs are vetted to ensure that they are dedicated and suited to a rehomed member of Banksia Park Puppies. Because you have a Banksia Park Puppy, you can use this rehoming list and our other resources to re-home your dog at any stage of it’s life. If this doesnt suit you or your timeframe, we will organise for your puppy to come to us and we will look after it until such time when it finds a new home. We will always help and we would hate to think of you not contacting us first, so please remember to tell us if you ever need our help.

We hope you have a very long and happy life with this puppy, but if your circumstances change please remember – if you need help contact us first.

Banksia Park Puppies – Cavies and Cavoodles

Fun with our Cavie and Cavoodle puppies

We had a good play with some of our puppies we’re keeping here at Banksia Park Puppies. One day they’ll be Banksia Park Dogs! Now they want lots and lots and lots of attention due to being in their critical socialisation period. This is where they do all their learning. So in this time we put loads of effort into training them, playing with them, patting them, and in general teaching them to be around people and kids. Here are some photos of these gorgeous puppies – Cuzzie, Muppet, Muffin, Harlow, Harsha, Harper, Poko and Harlee.
