We are dog lovers, members of Dogs NSW & a number of specialty dog clubs & dog training clubs. We are ANKC registered dog breeders of ANKC registered Gun Dogs & ANKC registered Working Dogs.

We have shown, trialed, trained & worked dogs for many years & our dogs are regulars on the show circuit & compete in other disciplines. Our ANKC Gun Dog breed of choice are the Lagotto Romagnolo & Our Working Dog breeds are German Shepherd Dogs and Spanish Water Dogs which we have imported from Europe in the last couple of years.

We live out of Sydney about an hour from the CBD & approx 2 hours from Canberra on some acres that is a work in progress for the benefit of the dogs, other domestic animals, and the native animals that share the land with us.

The property is adjacent to native bush, creeks & rivers, not too far from the coast & an ideal environment to raise & train our dogs. We take no shortcuts in their care & welfare & welcome those of you interested in the breeds to visit us, but by appointment. We have a responsible & defined breeding programme that results in healthy pups with personality & character, fit for work, sport, or as family pets. Whilst our pups might go to enthusiasts interested in a range of dog sports such as obedience, agility, fly ball, dock diving, etc., some of our pups are trained to be therapy dogs, tracking dogs, truffle hunters, service dogs & retrieving dogs, but our pups also go to approved 'pet ' homes.

We have pups from time to time, and when available are always ANKC registered on Main Register from health tested & DNA tested parents. We subscribe to the Volhard and the neurological stimulation tests & processes. We ensure their physical & mental development by raising pups in our home & from 5 weeks they spend time, weather permitting, in a special area next to the house & all pups are socialised with our other dogs & family members. Pups leave us at 8 weeks of age healthy & confident, ANKC registered, vaccinated, health tested & micro-chipped with all paperwork. The next 8 weeks of life is a critical period for the pup & you. Don't waste it - the first 16 weeks of their lives is a most critical time.

It's important for prospective Lagotto and Spanish Water Dog owners to understand that these breeds really are 'working' dogs, require time, effort and ongoing training. They are not lap dogs & are not low maintenance dogs. They are certainly cute & fluffy when small & young, but they grow fast, needing consistent guidance & a lot of mental stimulation that will be demanding of your time. They are smart & energetic; dig holes, like water, and need regular grooming. They need ongoing 'balanced' training & NOT 'positive only' training and the training does not stop at puppy preschool graduation. You need time & commitment & if you don't have the skillset, then we can recommend professional dog trainers using balanced training methods, to you.

NOTE WELL, early desexing is not recommended for the long term health of the dog, be it a male or female.....

We suggest to you that the most important considerations when looking for a Lagotto pup or a SWD pup to join your family is not the colour of the pup, but the temperament and character. Please bear this in mind.

Enquiries are always welcome but we do have a process that needs to be followed if you are really interested in a healthy, well balanced, confident & personable Incavale pup. We make no apology in being extra careful about suitable homes for our pups so it is suggested that an initial phone call to Judith on 0246843991 or 0418966336, is the way to go. We will send our puppy application form which will give us information about yourself, family, contact details, home address, experience with dogs, and other information that is important to us.

Text & email messages that do not provide any information about yourself, why you are interested in the breed etc., are usually ignored.

Please visit our website and through our pages & check the blog as most of the questions you will ask about our dogs are answered there.
