A Cavoodle Breeder Combining Family Life and Dog Breeding to the Betterment of Both

Family Dog Breeder of Toy Cavoodles and Mini Groodles 

Raggy Dogs is a registered Cavoodle breeder and small family business that has been breeding Toy Cavoodles and Mini Groodles since 2017. In that time we have had a handful of litters, breeding no more than 1 or 2 litters each year.

We take the planning and commitment required to raise a happy, healthy litter of puppies very seriously. Our whole family is involved in the process, benefiting both the children and our dog breeding outcomes. Our children play a very important role in socialising our puppies; they are our novelty machines, our giggling, wriggling and sometimes screaming little humans. Resultantly, our puppies are always very resilient, confident and optimistic when they leave our home.

Mini Groodle Breeder

We are a small-scale dog breeder of Mini Groodle puppies in Sydney, NSW. Raggy Dogs’ fleece-coated Mini Groodles, combine the calm, loving nature of the Golden Retriever with the intelligence and non-shedding coats of our Toy and Miniature Poodle stud dogs

Features of our Mini Groodle Bloodline

  • Health Testing – As ethical Groodle breeders, our breeding dogs are DNA-tested and studs hip-scored. We only utilise stud dogs who score better than the breed average to ensure we are improving the quality of our dogs’ hips with each generation.
  • Size – Raggy Dogs’ Mini Groodles are a medium-sized dog, generally weighing between 9 and 15kg.
  • Pedigree – We breed first-generation F1 Mini Groodle puppies (Golden retriever cross Toy/Mini Poodle) puppies. We also breed F1b Mini Groodle puppies (F1 Groodles x Toy/Mini Poodle).
  • Coat types – We have Mini Groodle puppies in non-shedding fleece and non-shedding wool coats.
  • Temperament – As an experienced dog breeder we understand the importance of breeding from mentally sound dogs. When you meet the parents of your Mini Groodle puppy, you will see firsthand the calm, confident and considerate temperament of our Mini Groodles. They have proven themselves to be devoted and gentle family and therapy dogs.
  • Exercise requirements – Our Mini Groodles do not require extensive exercise. 30 minutes of walking with you or playing fetch are sufficient for our line of breeding. They are adaptable; happy chilling with you at home but always up for an adventure with the family to the beach, camping, cafe or bush.
  • Expected life span – 12 to 16 years (if fed a mix of quality human-grade proteins, vegetables and quality freeze-dried food). 
  • Space requirements – Our Mini Groodles have found themselves in apartments, suburban backyards and rural properties. They blossom when they are played with for at least 30 minutes a day (fetch, tug, training games) and would also be grateful for a brisk 20-minute walk. We do temperament evaluations and allocate our puppies based on their personality and subsequent needs at 6-7 weeks of age. 
  • Groodle Grooming – As our puppies have non-shedding fleece and wool coats, expect to brush and comb your Mini Groodle at least once per week (30 minutes). The shorter the style of haircut that you choose, the easier maintenance brushing will be. Mini Groodles need to be groomed (wash, blow dry and clip) every 6 weeks or so.

Raggy Dogs Bloodline – Our Mini GoldenDoodles

While we are a passionate dog breeder for the Toy Cavoodle and Mini Groodle; Raggy Dogs has also combined some highly desirable breed genetics to create a unique bloodline of hypoallergenic, non-shedding family dogs. We have created a genetically diverse small to medium-sized dog by blending healthy dogs with sound temperaments.

 

Combining the elite genetics of our Cavoodles, Groodles, and Bordoodles has led to the creation of a non-shedding teddy bear-looking dog with a calm temperament. By combining these poodle mixes, our new bloodline of Raggy Dogs enjoys the significant benefits associated with increased genetic diversity. Similarly, we are now in our fourth generation of breeding. This represents four generations of breeding from better-than-breed average hip-scored stud dogs. Our sires and dams have also been DNA tested and deemed not affected by any of their respective breed hereditary diseases.

 

We are very proud of our unique line of Raggy Dogs and look forward to developing this bloodline further with the introduction of new genetics that we’ve been excitedly researching over the last 2 years.

Dog Breeding Experience – Conformation and Dog Sports

My name is ‘Tres’ and I am the founder of Raggy Dogs. I was born into the world of dogs, weekends were spent at dog shows and after school, I rushed home to play with, groom and train our dogs. My parents bred and showed English Staffordshire Bull Terriers. I got my first Toy Poodle when I was 5 years old and have never been without a Poodle by my side since.

I’ve been involved with dog sports such as ANKC competition level Obedience and Conformation Showing. My experience with conformation show dogs has led me to be able to identify a dog that is well-built and fit for purpose.

Having handled, trained and lived with many individual dogs and breeds over the last 37 years, I understand most dogs and their needs. My passion has seen me devote 37 years to the training, breeding, feeding, raising, care, connection and behavioural modification of both companion and competition sports dogs.

Family Life with Our Dogs

Becoming a mother has added a new and exciting dimension to my life with dogs. Witnessing the synergistic benefits that children, puppies and adult dogs bring to each other has been a great source of joy and enlightenment for me over the past 5 years.

I’m convinced that my children’s lives are better for sharing our home with our dogs. Our children’s faces light up when our dogs engage them in play and vice versa. In a world filled with screens and plastic, our dogs bring the spontaneity and invigorating influence of nature into our family home. 

Raggy Dogs’ puppies understand the trials and tribulations of being a little human. They are not phased by tantrums and will often offer a calming cuddle or engage the child in play to distract them. The calming touch that our cuddly companions offer, can be very therapeutic to children living with anxiety, ADHD, autism and trauma.

I have witnessed firsthand the calming effect our Raggy Dogs have on our children; supporting them while they develop their emotional regulation.

Our Journey to Developing a Hypoallergenic Non-Shedding Bloodline of Family Dogs 

Our children have both suffered from allergies since they were born. As any parent who has cared for a child with asthma, hay fever or eczema knows, it is exhausting, relentless and heartbreaking. With dogs being such a significant part of my life, I needed to find a solution so that my extremely sensitive children could enjoy the unconditional love that dogs bring to the family home. After 2-3 generations of breeding poodle mix breeds including Cavoodles, Bordoodles and Groodles, we were producing soft shaggy fleece and wool coats that were completely non-shedding and thereby hypoallergenic (less likely to cause allergies).

Our children have both suffered from eczema and allergies. This was my motivating force behind creating a hypoallergenic, non-shedding line of family dogs.

We combined our experience in breeding with the latest DNA testing science which allowed us to examine the coat traits of our breeding girls and stud dogs. Armed with the genetic information that determines the texture, style and propensity toward shedding; we were set to further refine the coats in our Raggy Dogs line of hypoallergenic family dogs.

We’re proud to be considered among some of the best Oodle breeders in Australia. We are part of a community of small in-house breeders working together to improve the quality of these beautiful family dogs in Australia.

We believe in promoting small, in-house family breeders. We breed sparingly and cannot meet the demand for ethically bred puppies. Hence, we’re happy to share the details of Oodle puppies for sale from other reputable breeders in our community, thereby promoting ethical dog breeding practices.

We strive to support and promote the small in-house ethical Cavoodle breeder who aims to raise mentally and physically sound family dogs.

Our Mission

To transform the way puppies are bred and trained by connecting puppy buyers, owners and breeders with information, products and reputable industry experts.

Puppies raised in puppy farms by unscrupulous dog breeders produce puppies with behaviour problems and shorter lifespans.

We encourage all Cavoodle breeders to utilise the latest health testing, puppy-raising tools and techniques, dog behaviour and training research and veterinary science to better their practices.

Our Values

We strive to improve and promote ethical dog breeding and training practices and thereby the health and well-being of all dogs. We utilise the latest scientific evidence-based and peer-reviewed research to inform our decision-making. 

We believe that the wellbeing and welfare of dogs can be improved through the collaboration of dog breeders, puppy buyers and owners with industry experts including veterinarians, dog trainers, world-class breeders, animal scientists, canine nutritionists, groomers, dog behaviourists and geneticists.
