Swinging Gate Daphne
Pedigree Quality Breeder
Australian Labradoodle breeder Daphne is the queen bee of our home. Daphne represents the essence of what Tegan Park wanted to create in a breed of dog.
We each claim that we are Daphne’s favorite human. Daphne looks into our eyes so deeply that we swear she is half human. She uses her paw to delicately get our attention to play or be petted. She lies on the back of the sofa and snuggles beside our faces or rests her head on our shoulders.
Daphne’s build is slender yet strong. She stands at 15.5 inches from foot to shoulder and weighs a healthy 20 pounds. With her build, she jumps incredibly high. In fact, we want to train her on frisbee tosses one day.
Daphne’s doodle intelligence proves itself often. She opens kennel latches, pocket doors, and ziplock food containers. She loves to play with our boys and any doggie friend around. She becomes a calm lap dog when playtime is done.
Daphne retains some of the Irish water spaniel’s traits from the Australian Labradoodle’s beginnings. We comment that wetting her is like wetting a duck. Her labradoodle coat does not hold dirt easily. Yet her wavy fleece remains soft and lush.
Daphne’s Labrodoodle Pedigree
Daphne throws large, intelligent, and beautiful litters. Her puppies come in all colors. Her grown pups range in weight from 11 to 28 pounds. She follows in the footsteps of her mother, Ella, and her father, Augie. People sought after their high-quality litters. Daphne proves the quality of their breeding.
Why is medical testing necessary?
Selective breeding programs help control hip and elbow dysplasia and inherited eye diseases. The Australian Labradoodle Club of America offers a controlled atmosphere. Required tests ensure that generations of breeding animals do not pass on genetic defects to offspring.
When you purchase a puppy registered with the ALCA, you know that the labradoodle is bred with the highest quality of health in mind.
To obtain certification, Sweet Carolina Labradoodles schedules our pups’ appointments after they turn ten months old. This age ensures they are practically developed and will test accurately.
Because we live in the country, we plan a full day of travel to Charlotte for each breeder dog. We visit two different canine specialists.
The procedure for hip and elbow dysplasia requires several hours. The doodles are given light anesthesia to ensure a thorough examination.
After our labradoodle wakes, we visit a canine eye specialist for a detailed examination. The Labradoodle is then registered with the Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF).
Upon receipt of satisfactory results, we send the paperwork into the ACLA. We pay the registration fee. Then our new doodle breeder is official! Our club’s health requirements ensure the health of our puppies. It also promises that our adoptive families gain a quality pet to enjoy for years to come.
