Our breeding program's goal is to provide you with the sweetest, healthiest new family member possible. We extensively test every one of our breeding dogs before they join our program and results of their tests are posted under each momma or daddy dogs description. These tests help us identify affected dogs and make sure they are not bred, and increase the probability that your puppy will be a healthy one! Most of these tests are also a requirement for membership in the Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA) and the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA), both of which we are breeder members of, and recognized for testing above and beyond the minimum requirements. In addition to regular physical examinations by a board certified veterinarian, tests certified by the Orthopedic Foundation of America (OFA) and Paw Print Genetics (PPG) are a part of our standard testing practice. Each of our dogs have  been tested for the following:
