Puppy-monials (Our puppies with their new families)

If you have a puppy from Pines Pets, please let us know how pup is doing, we would love to know and can share your experience with others. Just contact us here.




Ebony is now two and half years old and has become the most wonderful dog ever. She is so obedient, so playful and just the most loving little dog ever. She is the queen of her local dog park and has tonnes of puppy friends. Ebony loves meeting new people and everyone falls in love with her. Thanks especially to Ian the Dog Trainer for helping Ebony and I to get to know how to live and play together. I often talk to her about Tiny and Tabasco and how much they would be so proud of the beautiful sweet natured funny loving puppy she has become.




Just wanted to let you know that our Spoodle puppy ‘Alby’ arrived safely this afternoon and has already settled in very well. We are all totally in love with him and could not be happier!

Thank you for all your help and advice. We were extremely happy with your customer service and would recommend you to others searching for a puppy without a doubt.

Thanks again



Charlie, or also known as 'the teddy bear' is a Cavoodle and a very special member of our family. He is one of the most friendliest dogs we know and loves being around us all the time. He is always excited to meet new people, especially other dogs. He has a very fun, loving, vibrant and cheeky personality, and is very clever. We could not imagine life without him.

Thanks to Pines Pets for breeding such a beautiful dog.

Danny and Leah



Dear Pines Pets

Millie has settled in beautifully with our family. She has a great nature and is a delight!




We really enjoyed going around Banksia Park and appreciate the time spent with us, personally I loved being able to pat so many dogs. It was wonderful seeing them all including the new borns and understand how well they are all looked after. We already knew that they were well looked after dogs because of our beautiful 3 year groodle.

I’ve attached the latest photo of both Benni (our new boy) and Bailey (the 3 year old from Amanda).


Benni and Bayley



We bought Marli from PinePets/Banksia Park early this year, and he is the most beautiful loving, friendly, cheeky, intelligent Cavoodle. We couldnt be more pleased with his incredible personality who has settled in wonderfully into our home. We have 2 young boys, a German Shepherd and a Burman cat!

Thank you so much



We purchased max our mini groodle from you last July and have been very slack in sending photos!

He is now 16 months old and hopefully fully grown. He is just adorable and we love him to bits.

Here is a photo of him we took this morning…



Hi Nick and Matt,

Just a quick hello and as promised wanted to let you know how well Nala is doing. It has been 10 weeks already that Nala has joined our home and she is an absolute joy. She's the cutest, cuddliest, extremely smart, healthy, and very happy puppy. We could not have asked for a more perfect puppy.

We have been very busy socialising her since we got her, walks (we get stop all the time; people commenting how cute she is and wanting a cuddle), puppy pre-school, and currently obedience training/puppy school. We take her to a dog park every day for some exercise and play with her friends which is conveniently at a couple of strolls away. She adapted quickly to the house, she is house trained, will sit on command, drop, and roll-over.

So we would like to thank you Matt and your Dad to welcome us to your property on both occasion to meet our little one. We were very pleased with how well and healthy all your dogs were; the cleanliness and how dedicated you and your staff are to the dogs and as well as meeting Nala's parents, brothers and sisters. You have made this whole important experience so easy, exciting and memorable.

To Nick and the team at Pines pets, great customer service and very knowledgeable. We were very impressed on the handover of Nala to us with all the valuable tips on coping through the first night. (Which was very good she only woke up twice; and since sleeps all through the night). We won't miss to stop and say hi the next time we are in the area.

Attached are some pics of Nala taken this week.

Thanks again

Hi Nick

How many words do I get. I could talk about how funny they are forever, their personalities are hilarious

Molly Doodle (light colour) was purchased in March 2009 and has been such an amazing dog, so much so I then purchased Harvey (black) in 2011. At first Molly was who is this, don’t look at me, don’t touch me and don’t think about me. She was very put out. Now they are partners in crime. Not ever having a male dog before I did not know what to expect but Harvey has weaved his way into my heart with his gentle soul. They love to run, sniff and sleep anywhere we are, Need a bigger bed. I could not be happier with the two of them, and could not imagine my life without them. Love this breed, their nature, their size and that they don’t lose hair.

Thank you so much for 2 of the most amazingly healthy happy dogs

My girlfriend also has purchased 2 Cavoodles from you, and now I have another friend interested in getting one as well.

Kindest regards


Molly and harvey

Hi Pines Pets,

Thought you may like an update on one of your pups. and she traveled all the way up to Coffs Harbour.

My kids bought me a delightful little female pugalier from you in November last year.

I have attached a couple of pics to show you her funny personality. She stays at home in the mornings after an energetic walk then comes to work in the office to help with the shredding and other paperwork. Also I discovered she is a real water dog..... creeks, ponds, mud puddles, and of course the surf make great playtimes. The last pic of her supervising me from her sun lounge is the latest one.

I am so glad my kids decided I needed a pugalier in my life!!

Keep up the good work.

Kind regards,



Hi Nick,
I'm sure you see puppies all the time, but I just wanted to share with you a pic of our puppy we bought from you guys 4 weeks ago.
As you can see, she is very healthy & the happiest, funniest dog I have ever had the pleasure of owning. I think the pic says it all :-) :-)
We named her Miss Piggy & I can assure you, she lives up to her name in every way!!
She is slowly getting the hang of training but its so hard not to spoil her a bit sometimes ;-) we love her to bits & 4 weeks feels like a lifetime already!! I couldn't imagine my life without her.
I just wanted to thank you & to let you know she is loved & very happy :-D

Thankyou Pines Pets for our beautiful puppy- Chino the golden Spoodle.

Chino just turned 5 months old. He is the centre of attention in our house. We don't know what we ever did without him! He loves bones, playing ball at the beach & cuddles.

I love coming home to his happy face and wagging tail at the back door.

Thankyou Pines Pets, for our perfect (sometimes naughty) puppy and new bestfriend Chino.

Lauren & James

Spoodle, Chino



Hi Nick and Mia,

As promised, here are some photos of Darcy mini groodle 6 weeks into his new home!

He was top of his puppy preschool - Mia we're told we have you to thank for Darcy being such a well behaved pup in those first few weeks :)

He's super social and everyone loves him. He knows sit, drop, shake, stay and roll so far..

He's famous in our neighborhood .. We get stopped all the time because everyone wants a pat and even if we're not with him - by people asking "do you have a puppy called Darcy?" :)

He has his naughty moments ;) cheeky nips as we walk down the hall or tearing at his pee pads, but
we're looking forward to taking him out to his first park visit (his final shot is this weekend). He's been dying to do more than his walks around the block ..

Thanks again to you both - we couldn't be happier with our new addition to the family!

Sam and Deepa



Thank you very much. We are delighted with our little one!

Your service has been outstanding and i shall be referring your details on to other friends looking for a puppy.

Thanks again

Cavador puppy


Hi there Nick,

Our Sally is absolutely adorable, smart, funny, and very strong willed. However I'm even more so! She loves daily excursions to the park, playing with all the regular dogs - the bigger the better.

She learns amazingly fast; can sit, drop, stay, fetch a ball, come, crawl, sit on a box (or a stack of 3), jump over a bar, crawl under, roll over ...and is learning to "heel" both on and off lead. All she needs is a pink frilly tutu and she can join the circus!

Her vocab grows daily. Chair (hers) couch (only when invited) toy, teddy, down, bed, outside, etc.

To add to that, she gas already deposited 2 rats on the step. Both rather long deceased.

All the best,


Hi Nick,

We wanted to let you know how our Cavador, Pippa has been going since we picked her up on August 23rd. She is almost 6 months old now and we couldn't be happier with her, she has such a lovely nature and does nothing but wag her tail and try to play with everyone she meets.

Pippa is now toilet trained and we are looking at joining an obedience club to train her further. (Already graduated Puppy School in September)

We were really impressed with the help we received while going through the process of finding the perfect dog for us, and were so glad that we had the opportunity to go down to Banksia Park and meet everyone there.

Big thank you to everyone at Pines Pets and Banksia park.

We have attached a few photos of Pippa.

Emily, Bryce and Pip :)



Dear Nick and Team at Pines Pets,

We wanted to let you know how much joy our little Puggle girl 'Mia' has brought to our family. We couldnt be happier with her. She is 6 months old now and she is part of the family. The Puggle really has the best elements of both the Pug and the Beagle. She has the cheekiness and playfulness of the Beagle and the love and affection of the Pug. She loves going for walks and has her special toys that she plays with. She is also very intelligent and with her keen sense of smell, can sniff out her toys when we hide them. Our boys absolutely adore her. We wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and the girls for all your help and advice. We have no hesitation in recommending Pines Pets for anyone looking for that special addition to their family.

I've attached a recent photo of Mia.

Best regards,
David & Rachel

Hi there

Thought I would drop you a line and let you know that our mini groodle "Ella" is just adorable. Ive attached a couple of photos of her to standing still long enough to take a quick snap! She has settled very well into the family and has been relatively easy to train (with a few accidents here and there!)

She has been to puppy school and done lots of socialising and we try to take her with us as much as possible and is the biggest hit no matter where we go! Last weekend we went to Williamstown and it coincided with the 110th Anniversary of Harley Davidson - we even had bikies taking photos of her. She is very social and enjoys walking and meeting other dogs, children and anyone really...... our walks take double the time they should by the time we stop and chat and tell everyone we meet all about her.

Well thats all for now except for a big thank you we are more than happy with our bundle of joy!

Fritz is doing very well, thank you.

We are looking forward to getting his final vaccination on Saturday and some time after that he will have his first haircut!

Ive attached a few photos.

Our little Spoodle, Bella, is almost five months old now and we cant believe how fast time has gone since we got her!

She settled in at home very quickly and after a couple of days already had the run of the household! Bella is now fully toilet trained and has recently graduated from Puppy Pre-School and enjoys showing off her new tricks (sit, drop, shake, roll, high five, spin and bow)!

Despite being very cheeky she is incredibly well behaved and loves playing with her toys and being taken for walks.

Bella has been a welcome addition to our family and is much loved by all of us!

I have attached a picture of her for you - she is certainly a lot bigger now than the little fluff ball we picked up in February!

Kind Regards,


Spoodle Bella


Hello Pines Pets,

Thank you for your email. Coco brings us so much joy everyday. Here is a recent picture of her.

Bye for now and kind regards,

Spoodle Coco


Hi everyone!
We picked up our beautiful little Schnoodle pup from you on Feb 22. We named her Lexie, which means mans defender. A huge thank- you to Nick who carried out a fantastic hand over of her to us. We were both very nervous when we saw how small she was but Nick put us at ease as he took us through everything & answered my page of questions !
Lexie has recently had her 12 week vaccinations & was a very brave girl. The vet said she was fantastic & was a good settled pup. We had Ian the dog trainer out 2 give us some tips & will enroll her in a local obedience school very soon. She defiantly has a cheeky streak but we wanted a dog with personality ! She is an absolute delight & brings joy into our lives every day. Thank you so much for looking after her & us. We have told everyone how impressed we were with you & will defiantly recommend you to anyone who is looking for a puppy.
We can't believe how much she has grown ! I will send through some pictures.
Thanks again, Anne & Paul

Both of our Cavadors from Pines Pets are doing so well and are best friends! Bailey is now 9 months old and Ollie is coming up to 4 months. Thank-you, we couldn't love them more!

Hi Jo,

Our Spoodle Alfred is doing fantastically well.
He's now toilet trained, has his own bedroom (the laundry) and really enjoys going for walks and runs.

We took him to the beach for the first time on Sunday and also did a lap of Albert Park with him as well (see photo attached)

He's loving his life being a puppy and we love having him!!




Thanks so much! We are absolutely in love with our little Freo - she brings so much love to our home! I've attached a few pictures of her so you can see how much she's grown. The first was taken a few weeks after we brought her home, on the night we introduced her to my entire staff (about 45 people). She played and played and played until finally, she completely crashed out on the couch. :) The second is more recent, with Freo modelling her homemade Dockers bandana (which Grandma sent her from Canada). We are so, SO happy with our little family - thank you so much!

Hi Nick and Steve,
Our little Ruby is growing up.
She is an absolute joyful addition to our bustling household. From the very timid, meek little puppy that came home on the first
day, she has blossomed to be a cheeky, boisterous bundle of love.
We are so thrilled to have chosen her, (secretly we think she chose us.)
She is social, fun loving, a little spoilt and all the things we hold dear to our hearts. Our three children adore her as do we.
Ian the trainer visited us early on and she has been very responsive to many of his techniques.
We love her to bits and thank you for bringing her into our lives.
If we ever opt for a second pup (which we may do: a cream puff we think to complement our Ruby) we will be in touch in a flash.
Thanks again and kind regards
