Looking for a Cavoodle Stud Service and wanting to ensure your puppies won’t shed?
We have four handsome Toy and Mini Poodle studs that are offered to ethical breeders for Cavoodle Stud Service. If you’re wanting to breed a litter of Teddy bear coated Cavoodle puppies, it’s important to understand how Cavoodle coat traits are inherited and the genetics of the Cavoodle Stud Service you’re considering using. All of our studs are suitable to be bred with Cavoodle females as they are double furnished, meaning they cannot produce short-haired Cavoodles that shed.

How do I organise a date with my girl for your Cavoodle Stud Service?
It’s important to check your girl daily for signs of bleeding when she’s due on heat – to ensure you’re able to navigate her cycle and determine the time of ovulation. Dogs generally have a cycle (period) twice a year, usually every 6 months and first come into season from 6-12 months of age. They normally start to ovulate around day 9 of bleeding but it can vary (have seen ovulation occur as early as day 5 and as late as day 16.
How do I know when my dog is ready to meet your Cavoodle Stud?
The blood generally lessens and goes from bright red to a diluted/straw-like colour but this is not always the case. They will usually also swell up more and will start flagging (pulling their tail to one side).
Due to the variation between female dogs and their breeding cycles, progesterone blood testing is recommended. This is done at the vet to determine if and when a female is ovulating. The first blood test is done around day 5-9 of bleeding. Colyton vet charges approximately $60 for in-house progesterone testing and generally has the result available within 1.5 hours. It’s not uncommon for clients to do 2-4 progesterone tests to ensure breeding is done at the optimal time (once ovulation has occurred, the eggs take two days to ripen and this is the best time to mate or inseminate to achieve a large litter size).
What happens when we visit for the Cavoodle Stud Service?
When the female is ready, you bring her to visit our Cavoodle Stud. We have a dedicated outdoor, clean, fully fenced and concreted area where the dogs can get to know each other. Some girls take 20-30 minutes to feel comfortable with the stud dog and surroundings. Our studs will usually mate(tie) within 10 minutes of the female meeting for the Cavoodle Stud Service and they stay stuck together for anywhere between 10-30 minutes.
What does your Cavoodle Stud Service fee include?
The stud fee includes up to two matings – over consecutive days or separated by a day (depending on your female’s progesterone levels). So if for example, your female ovulates on day 9-10 and we get a mating on day 10 we’d attempt another on day 11 or 12.
You would normally bring her to our Cavoodle stud at our property in Sydney, NSW. If travel to Colyton vet is required for AI (artificial insemination) or TCI (trans-cervical insemination) that is an additional $100 per trip, this is not included in the stud fee, nor are any of the vet costs associated with the insemination which must be paid by the owner of the female.
