Why should you get a puppy from EllsWORTH Labradoodles?

First, here is a little history about me. My family had Springer Spaniels and I loved growing up with dogs and cats. When I was in grade school, my parents bought 6 acres out in the country and we had horses, cows, sheep and pigs. I loved it all. At 25, I moved from UT to AZ met my husband, married and had 5 kids. We moved from AZ back to Utah and I decided to get a labradoodle. Saddie, my very first labradoodle was an F1B and I bought her with breeding rights, since I knew I wanted to breed her, and I wanted to do it “right.”

I joined the ALAA (Australian Labradoodle Association of America) and the ALCA (Australian Labradoodle Club of America). I also had membership for a number of years with WALA (Worldwide Australian Labradoodles Association).  I learned about each of the groups requirements for breeding, how to choose the best dogs to breed, and more about multigeneration labradoodles. In 2009, Saddie had her first puppy (a singleton). The sire was a multigeneration labradoodle that was a therapy dog for a paraplegic and was beautiful. Her 2nd litter was 12 puppies born on New Year's Eve! My vet taught me a lot about how to be a breeder and best practices for raising healthy puppies.

I then started going to ALAA Roundtables (3 day conferences to learn about how to breed better, how to raise puppies better etc.). I went to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Florida, and Denver to attend these wonderful conferences. I learned so much. I met other breeders that would help me and really excited me to be even better at breeding dogs. I have attended hours and hours of webinars for better breeders. I learned about body structure and temperament. I learned about things that can go wrong during deliveries and what to do about it. I joined the Puppy Culture program and the AVID dog trainers. I learned about the best ways to raise healthy mamas and how to help puppies grow well and happy.

6 years after I started breeding dogs, we moved from our beloved home in Payson, Utah, to an older home that is zoned agriculture in Provo, Utah so that I could get a license to be a legal dog breeder. We applied for and received our license from the city to be a dog breeder. We have been awarded Best of Provo: Dog Breeder five years in a row. I have my gold paw from ALAA saying that I exceed the health testing that is they require. We have been recognized as a "Good Breeder" from Good Dog for a Responsible Dog Breeding Program. Also, we have partnered with Baxter and Bella training program to encourage excellent training throughout our dogs' lives.

Every breeding dog in my program is loved and cared for. Right now, all of my mama dogs live in guardian homes and are cherished members of their families. Check out my page on guardianship to learn more about how a guardianship works.

I feed my dogs quality food, they have regular vet checks, they get training, and I go to training. I like to let my puppies go to their new homes close to 8 weeks old but sometimes I hold some back and keep them longer to see if they would also "better the breed"  and make good breeding dogs. When I have dogs longer we continue to train them, and work with them and keep them up to date on vaccinations, and then find homes for them with people that are looking for older puppies. I have someone come almost daily to help train and work with the puppies. They get regular baths, go to stores, visit seniors, and get experiences with kids and new places. I love and spoil my dogs and I know that each of my dogs in guardian homes are completely loved. Our dogs are family members and give us back so much love! We want each of our puppies and their future families to be just as happy as our doggies. Thank you for taking time to learn more about us and our beautiful, multigeneration Australian Labradoodles.
