Swinging Gate Chipper
Pedigree Quality Breeder
We happily announce that our red male doodle Chipper passed his medical tests to become a quality breeder with the Australian Labradoodle Club of America!
We loved Chipper from the moment we saw a picture of his sweet four-week old doodle face. Once we held him for the first time, we knew we had a special boy.
At his shoulders, he is 15 inches high and weighs a healthy 18 pounds.
Chipper is a “Mama’s boy” staying at his mama’s feet and loving any attention he receives from his family.
Chipper also is a regular at his “brothers’ and sisters'” soccer and baseball games.
He travels with the family and is well behaved wherever he goes.
He draws a crowd with his small mini labradoodle size, dark red wavy coat, perfect muzzle, and natural disposition.
Chipper’s Labrodoodle Pedigree
Chipper follows the footsteps of his mother, Swinging Gate Scarlett, and his father, Whispering Winds Hudson, honorably. Both mother and father are deep red and throw dark red litters. Chipper, now a proven sire, throws calm, loving, and beautiful doodle puppies. We look forward to a long career with him.
Why is medical testing necessary?
Hip and elbow dysplasia and inherited eye diseases can be controlled by selective breeding programs as offered by the Australian Labradoodle Club of America. These tests ensure that generations of breeding animals do not pass on these genetic defects to their offspring.
When you purchase a puppy registered with the ALCA, you know that the labradoodle has been bred with the highest quality of health in mind.
To obtain certification, here at Sweet Carolina Labradoodles we schedule our pups appointments after they turn ten months old. This age ensures they are practically developed and will test accurately.
Because we live out in the country, we plan a full day for each dog to travel to Charlotte to visit two different canine specialists.
The first test for hip and elbow dysplasia is a procedure requiring several hours as the doodles are given light anesthesia to have a thorough examination.
After our labradoodle wakes, we then visit a canine eye specialist for a detailed examination of the eye. The labradoodle is then registered with the Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF).
Upon receipt of satisfactory results, we send the paperwork into the ACLA, pay the registration fee, and our new doodle breeder is official! Our club’s health requirements ensure not only the health of our puppies but also that our adoptive families can count on gaining a quality pet to enjoy for years to come.
