Our Breeding Program
Our breeding program has proven to be one of the best in the country. It is built on a record of ethics, compassion, and love of this breed. We are here to educate and help you understand the breed and general information such as health testing, breed development, socialization, early spay and neutering, microchipping, and many other subjects. Please take time to read this page so you have a good understanding of the dedication we put into our program so that you get the very best puppy for your family.
First and Foremost... Guardian Homes
We do not have kennels!! All of our dogs are either raised by us, or enjoy a life in a family as a cherished pet. These families are called Guardian Homes. They are families just like you, that raise our potential breeding dogs in their homes, on the bed, and on their couch...haha. After the dog has been sufficiently health tested ONLY then will it enter our breeding program. After the dog retires from our program he/she already has a "forever home". This ensures that our dogs are well socialized, well cared for, trained as every dog should. No kennels here.
It is important for us to achieve the very highest quality of puppy we can, so that starts with excellent health testing results for all of our breeding dogs. Here is a list of all the health testing that each and every one of our breeding dogs has completed before it enters our breeding program. Our breeding program achieves the highest standards of ALL STAR health testing requirements according to the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA).
OFA Hips and Elbows and Pennhip:
This is a series of specialized X-Rays to determine the presence of, or likelihood of developing dysplasia or osteoarthritis in the hips, elbows or patella.
Testing is performed by a veterinary cardiac specialist and is certified as normal (congenital heart disease not evident) Equivocal (congenital heart disease cannot be diagnosed nor excluded) or Abnormal (examination indicative of congenital heart disease).
Von Wais a test specifically designed for a type of hemophilia (free bleeder) in dogs.
EIC Exercise Induced Collapse:
An inherited neuromuscular disorder affecting Australian Labradoodles. EIC presents as exercise intolerance in apparently healthy dogs.
Progressive retinal Atrophy, progressive Rod-cone degeneration (PRA-prcd):
An inherited eye disease affecting dogs. PRA-prcd occurs as a result of degeneration of both rod and cone type Photoreceptor Cellsof the Retina, which are important for vision in dim and bright light, respectively.
And many other disorders see additional testing we do on each and every dog here: Genetic Testing Sample, and additional Panel.
Each and every puppy receives a Florida Health Certificate that states the puppy has been seen by a licensed Veterinarian and is up to date with worming and shots appropriate to it's age and is healthy to be sold.
To safeguard your puppy we microchip all puppies. This way if your puppy every gets lost it can be easily identified by local Humane society or veterinarians to be returned to you. Don't forget to register your microchips after bringing puppy home! www.freepetregistry.com
Early Spay and Neutering
A safe and effective procedure that has many benefits. Spaying & neutering our pups is a safe, fast, and humane procedure that has many benefits for both pets and owners. This procedure is proven to give your pup a longer & healthier life: reducing the risk of uterine infections and breast tumors in females, and testicular cancer & prostate problems in males.
