Jenessa MacPherson & Crew
Several years ago, my husband was preparing to go to graduate school across the country while still engaged in his full time job, which meant lots of traveling for him. I said I
was on board if we could get a new dog to keep me company!! Thus began my research into what breed of dog would be a good fit in our family.
With seven kids, we were looking for a friendly dog that interacted well with children. I also have seasonal allergies, that seem to last all year long, so we were hoping to find a breed that was as hypo-allergenic as possible, with little to no shedding. I enjoy the training aspect as well and wanted a dog we could easily train. These traits brought us to the world of Multi-generational Australian Labradoodles, and we were hooked.
What was once a desire for one dog turned into two, and now to breeding these fabulous animals. It is a family affair, and we feel privileged to be a part of facilitating other families in experiencing the joy and companionship of these wonderful dogs.
What makes us different from all
the other labradoodle breeders out there?
We strongly endorse Dr. Carmen Battaglia's studies on Early Neurological Stimulation and socialization to give our puppies the best start possible. Please see the article published by Dr. Carmen Battaglia, report on research by the U.S. Military program called “BioSensor” or “Super Dog" . .
We also do Early Scent Introduction with our puppies. I am a proud graduate of Puppy Prep Curriculum at Baxter & Bella, have worked through the Puppy Culture program, and Badass Breeder's training. These programs center on positive reinforcement and taking advantage of the first critical twelve weeks of a puppy's life to instill good habits, obedience, and proper socialization. I belong to the Avidog Breeder College, which is a wonderful science based program I use for on going education. I also belong to both the ALCA and WALA breed organizations which hold us to a high standard of health testing and ethical breeding. I always want to be learning, implementing, and becoming the best breeder I can be.
Our puppies are typically sleeping eight hours a night in their crates by the time they are coming home to you. They know how to mand, which means using a sit as their way to ask 'please'-whether that is please: interact with me, give me a treat, play fetch, or eat my meal. We teach a strong recall-we use "puppy puppy come" which you will eventually shorten to "(name)..come". Our pups have a great start to potty training, going potty 6-8 times per day outside, and knowing the command "go potty." I also strive to safely socialize them to all kinds of people, noises, grooming, and toys--aiming for something new everyday they are with us. On top of the love, training, and socialization, our pups are temperament tested at seven weeks old when personalities have stabilized. I want to honor who the puppy is, and what you are looking for and give you both the best possible chance of success. This foundation for our puppies makes their transition from our family to yours as smooth as possible. We encourage our customers to continue using positive reinforcement and obedience training to ensure the best possible companion dog for your family.
