Are you registered breeders?
Our Breeder Identification Number is: 0000221842105
Why are you not aligned with associations such as Dogs Queensland, ANKC, AAPDB or PIAA?
What is the price for a puppy?
Standard, Medium and Mini Groodle pups are $4,180 including GST. This is inclusive of your pups first vaccination, microchipping, desexing and up-to-date parasite control.
All proceeds (after costs) are donated to charity.
Why do you charge so much for a cross bred dog?
Groodles were bred from a cross between a poodle and a golden retriever originally to make the perfect assistance dog.
Poodles are very intelligent dogs who tend to have low shedding hair but they can lack social skills, breeding them with the friendly Golden Retriever meant that they would make the perfect assistance dog.
Our goal at Groodles Australia is to breed high quality assistance dogs, but not all puppies are built for assistance, so therefor go as family pets.
The reason for the price we charge is because all our breeding dogs have been fully hip and elbow scored, DNA tested and temperament tested, as well as the vet work our puppies receive.
The profit made after these costs goes directly to charities.
The reason why many people purchase a dog from us is because they know they are receiving a high quality dog that is bred ethically in a loving family home and the money they spend is going to a worthy cause.
Do I pay a deposit?
We will contact you to inform you that you have been approved for a pup. At this point, we will require a deposit of $1500. This deposit is non-refundable. If you no longer wish to purchase a puppy, this deposit will be used as a donation to one of the charities supported by Groodles Australia.
The total remaining balance can be paid to Groodles Australia by direct deposit before receiving your puppy.
When is your next litter available?
We can not guarantee the number of litters that will be available and therefore do not operate a waiting list. We will announce the availability of pups when they are 4 -6 weeks of age through our Facebook page. From there, you should head to our litters page and fill in an individual puppy profile sheet. If there are no puppy profile sheets available on this page, it means we do not have any pups available for adoption – do check in with us again soon!
Can I see the litter, parent dogs and environmental conditions before adoption?
Successful applicants are welcome to meet the guardian family and the dog parents before committing to a puppy. This can be arranged at a time that suits our guardian family and staff. If you live interstate, we will happily send you pictures of your pup prior to adoption.
How are pups matched to families?
At what age do I receive my pup?
From where do I collect my pup?
I do not live in Brisbane – how do I receive my pup?
Do you guarantee a healthy pup?
Pups are health checked by a veterinarian at birth, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks and 8 weeks of age, and again on the day of their departure from our care.
Groodles Australia strongly advises the immediate commencement of pet insurance prior to the delivery of your pup.
Groodles Australia will not accept responsibility for treatment costs for pups who become unwell once they are with their new families*.
*Few exceptions may apply and these are determined on a case by case basis
Are Groodles ‘hypoallergenic’?
It is important to note that no studies have proven that any canine is completely hypoallergenic. This is because dog allergies are triggered by a protein shed from the skin of a dog, not from the fur or wool itself. The skin protein (attached to the hair) is what people with allergies usually react to.
The Poodle component of the Groodle breed assists in producing a wooly/curly coat type which can reduce flyaway hairs and excessive shedding, thus reducing the incidence of a potential allergic reaction in people.
Can I receive my Groodle without it being desexed?
On occasion, we will reserve an outstanding Groodle pup for breeding through the Groodles Australia program. If you are interested in adopting one of our future breeding pups, please contact us. We are more than happy to discuss what is involved in the program, or how else you may contribute your support for Groodles Australia.
Why are your Groodle puppies desexed so early?
We follow the RSPCA guidelines for humane early desexing protocols.

Who are the guardian families?
Our beautiful guardian families may own a male stud dog (usually a Poodle or Groodle) or a female dog (usually a Golden Retriever or Groodle). The guardian families responsible for the female breeding dog will ultimately care for our beautiful pups in their own home until the time of puppy adoption.
Each family is interviewed and we visit their home to ensure they share the same values as Groodles Australia before being accepted into the program.
Our guardian families are visited regularly by Groodles Australia staff who ensure our mums, dads and pups are healthy and happy from mating to pregnancy, and from whelping through to the time of puppy adoption.
For more information on joining our wonderful breeding program or to enquire about becoming a Groodle guardian, please email us.
Groodles Australia is a generous, community-minded, social enterprise, breeding the most beautiful, sound, healthy and intelligent Groodle pups for the enrichment of all involved.
Groodles have become a popular choice for many, with some being specially trained to become service dogs, companion animals for children with disabilities (including autism) and as medical alert dogs (for diabetics and epileptics).
This beautiful breed suits individuals and families from all walks of life, and we think they are very special indeed.
