My name is Carol Dean and I am a breeder of American and Australian multigen, Labradoodles, all sizes! I am located East of Atlanta, Georgia. My goal is to breed an all-around great family companion: with exceptional health, allergy-friendly (as much as possible), great coats and with a superb loving disposition.
My interest in breeding Labradoodles began with a love of Labrador Retrievers, well known for their great dispositions. A friend of mine,approached me one day while we were walking our dogs at the park. She had her exquisite black poodle along with her, I had my young English lab female named Jade. She proposed a mating of the two dogs and told me about labradoodles. I'd never heard of them before and after much research decided to give it "one" try........The union of these two dogs yielded my beloved Ace, who is pictured at the right. Sadly he was taken from us at only 17 mos old...........His personality, love, trust of everyone and utter loyalty, stole our hearts and it's been a doodle obsession since that time.
Many of our dogs live with us inside our home and on 8 acres. They have free run of the property, including pastures, woods, barn and pool area's all of which they utilize, sometimes more than we want them to......... I have many dogs in guardian homes which is wonderful for both the dog and the breeder. Dogs in guardian homes remain intact, have a loving family and are well socialized and trained no kennels ever! To learn more about this program click this Guardian home link..
We have two nurseries inside my home with live camara's so you can watch litters be born and raised by their moms and myself for the first 4 weeks......
These first few weeks puppies learn all the sights and sounds of the home. Vacume, TV, Alexa, music, laundry room noises as well as my constant phone chatter....
I do early neural stimulation the first week to help jump start their immune system and how they respond to stress. I often bottle feed my puppies, even for just one feeding a day so their first association with the human hand is one of love, nourishment and comfort. When weaning I hand feed them some canned food, initially to instill more of the human dog connection.... They then graduate to puppy mush and a bowl feedings.
When 4 weeks old they graduate to the nursery in my barn( heated/AC) where they have lots of room to play indoors and outside. They explore new things and learn how to interact with older dogs as well, pecking order issues. They get to experience the sights and sounds of rain, thunder, airplanes, mower noises as well as the many different footings that I have available for them. They continue to be handled a bunch once moved by my kid puppy proofing groups that come....and families getting puppies from that litter.....
This is the back side of my barn where the puppy nurseries are and some inside shots of the indoor areas. Puppies play in the pasture surrounding the barn several times a day. Yes the climbing toys are theirs too but toddlers visiting also get a kick out of them....
At night the adult dogs all sleep indoors with us and are active members of the house hold pecking order, human and animal alike..........We do have some potential breeding dogs in "guardian homes" which is the best of both worlds for some families and especially the dogs.......
|Our dogs and any litter we produce are hand raised with lots of love inside our home and are well socialized to the outside world and many of it's wonders before they leave us for their forever families.........( see socilaization link). They come to you with "at least" one set of shots, a veterinary health certificate, appropriate worming for age, and are micro chipped. Along with this you will receive a goody bag of toys, food for 3-4 days, and a toy with the scent of your puppies litter mates and mother, medical records booklet, as well as life time support from us.

My going home videos can be viewed here all must watch before picking up one of my puppies. Lots of important information can be learned here.
The Labradoodle possesses the strengths of both the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle: an intelligent, personable, loving, joyful and often times allergy-friendly dog............We are dedicated to the continuing effort to improve this wonderful breed in both health, temperament and coat.
Y'all just feel free to scroll around our web site and meet our dogs, all of whom have or are in the process of getting their health clearances. These will be listed on their individual pages. We feel strongly about breeding only the best, from champion line's and excellent health on both sides. Temperament is of the utmost importance as this can also be passed on to puppies..........
So come on down and schedual an appointment for a visit, to meet us, our dogs and a feel of southern hospitality! Or at least give us a call, or send an e-mail if you have any questions at all...........don't be a stranger...!
A list of references both vets and families can be sent upon request....
