My name is Brooke Waldron and I have been breeding quality AKC Labrador Retrievers since 2007. My love for animals has been life long. I was a Certified Veterinary Technician for 15 years, mostly working in a small animal hospital. I also received an Animal Science degree. My husband and I are Arizona natives and are located in the beautiful desert of North Phoenix, Arizona. I now dedicate 100% of my time at home with my husband, children, and animals. We live on property with our dogs and horses. Our labs enjoy our swimming pool and room to run. They are truly part of our family. Our puppies are raised in our home with us where they received lots of love and attention by our 2 daughters and many nieces and nephews. We welcome visits from families that have placed a deposit or plan to place a deposit in the near future.
My passion is animal health and reproduction. I have spent many years with some of the best veterinarians learning about all aspects of animal health. I put that knowledge to good use on my own animals as well as sharing with other breeders and pet owners around me. I do regular in-house fecal testing, vaginal cytology for predicting correct breeding dates, collection and artificial insemination, pregnancy ultrasound, in-house and lab progesterone testing, and any other lab work needed. I also do fresh frozen serum transfer on our puppies when needed. This involves drawing of blood on a healthy dog, spinning down their blood, and administering the serum portion to neonatal puppies in need of additional antibodies. We also do the basic deworming, vaccination, and microchipping on our puppies. Even though I am able to do most of the health care on our puppies and adults, we do have a full vet check from one of our amazing veterinarians before they leave to their new homes. I spend a lot of time researching naturopathic medicine to find better and healthier ways to raise and treat our Labradors. Diet and supplements are crucial to good health.
Our Labradors are selectively bred with careful health screening.
On top of genetics...Proper nutrition, worming, vaccination, and care are key to a long healthy life. Being a veterinary technician has given me the experience necessary to raise healthy pups. It is so important to breed quality health tested puppies. It is devastating to see the pain and suffering in a loving dog that debilitating genetic conditions cause. Many of these are highly preventable . I've seen too many pets with a life cut way too short. I'm dedicated to improving the breed. We breed for quality, not quantity.
