, ourOWaratah Puppies is an award winning, family operated business committed to breeding quality cavoodle and shoodle puppies, raised to be loving companions in their new forever home.  Our puppies are happy, healthy and look forward to bringing you much joy and affection.

Kaylene began breeding and raising Cavoodle puppies after a family member, who is on the Autism Spectrum, enjoyed such positive experiences from having a Cavoodle puppy in his life.  Waratah Puppies (formerly Waratah Park Puppies) sold our first puppies in 2010 and are still in contact with some of those families.

Welcoming a puppy into the family is a life-long ‘experience’ rather than simply a ‘purchase’.  There are no ‘silly’ questions.  Please ask all the questions you need answered.  The more information we provide you with BEFORE your puppy joins your family, the more prepared and confident you will be for their arrival.


You can have confidence your puppy has been bred in a healthy, happy environment.  Waratah Puppies is a vet audited breeder. Our facilities and practices are audited each year by an independent, qualified Veterinarian to ensure we meet or exceed the requirements of the NSW Code of Breeding Practice for Dogs and Cats.  Our animals are health checked and vaccinated annually.

From 1st July 2019, Breeders must provide their Breeder Identification Number (ours is B000793269) or microchip for all puppies being sold.

Waratah Puppies is a member of Pets Australia, APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers Australia) and local Chambers of Commerce.

When our first puppies flew to Sydney to meet their new families, they cried when put in their travel crate at the airport.  We cried too.   We decided on that first occasion to spend the time needed to have them settle happily in a travel crate so a flight wouldn’t be stressful to them.

Since 2011 we have crate trained all our puppies.  The benefit is:

  • The puppy has a safe, familiar place to travel home in, whether that’s in a car or a flight interstate or overseas;
  • The puppy has a safe, familiar place to sleep in at night.  Our puppies sleep through the night if their family follows our recommendations;
  • The puppy has a safe, familiar place to snuggle into when they need a quiet time and we ask families with children to respect the puppy’s need to have some quiet time away from constant activity, pats and cuddles

Our puppy owners appreciate the care, time and attention we invest in our puppies.  Here’s a testimony from one of our puppy owners –

I am writing this review simply to congratulate Kaylene and Stephanie from Waratah Park Puppies on raising the puppy I met and fell in love with and who is now the joy of our home.

I had been looking for over two years for a special puppy that would suit my lifestyle and family dynamic, especially with my elderly mum.

All the communication with Kaylene and Stephanie was effortless. Their information was exceptional and impressive, with comprehensive details of diet, sleeping and toiletry habits, vaccinations, registrations etc, which made the first weeks so enjoyable and stress free with my little Jerry. Together they answered all my questions and arranged a time for me to meet my new addition to our family to see if he was suitable.

Our little Jerry is extremely gentle and placid and eager to please. The local vet was also impressed with his temperament and discipline, corresponding to the quality of training that all began at Waratah Park Puppies.

If anyone is looking for a puppy that will fill their lives with more happiness and pleasure than you ever thought possible, you have found the best start for your puppy at Waratah Park Puppies.
