A recap of the many great changes that happened in 2019
Awesome feedback from some of our puppy families
Yes, we do want to hear from you!
Thank you so much to all our wonderful families for your support of Big Rock Labradoodles!
We appreciate you! You are all truly a blessing to us and to our puppies! Thank you for choosing us, your feedback, your stories, your before and after photos! The best compliment you give us is your referral of family and friends to join our Big Rock Family!
By supporting us, you support our dream of breeding better dogs! You support our families and so much more. You are not just buying a puppy when you work with us, you are buying a piece of our hearts.
Your support is truly appreciated xoxo -Alana & Brent and Andrea & Christian
We know the best way to connect with other great pet lovers looking to grow their family is through our Big Rock Families, just like you!
Naturally then, we would absolutely love it if you will help introduce us to your friends, family and colleagues...others whom you believe would also see the value in growing their families through Big Rock Labradoodles.
As such, our Referral Program will pay you $50 for each new puppy family you send our way after they adopt their new Wonderful Woofie from us.
To simplify the process, we have set up a referrals form for you to use, which is easily accessed on our website and we will take it from there, as well as update you on our progress!
A Recap of 2019
Well, I guess the biggest change was the fact that we relocated to an acreage! We didn't go far, just 10 mins South of our previous home, but it's so great to have more room, both inside and out!
Extra space aside, our program size will remain the same. It is so important that all our moms and pups have the individualized care and attention that they need to become fabulous dogs later on! Careful breeding, health of our sires and dams and a proper foundation for our puppies all work together to play a critical role in the puppy's temperaments, structure and overall health and wellness.
#kickassbreeder is a handle/hashtag that we have now adopted! Anyone can breed dogs, but not everyone has the passion and fortitude to be a #kickassbreeder. Our passion for better breeding practices and breeding better dogs has not waned over the years that we have been breeding our #wonderfulwoofies , in fact, quite the opposite! Our passion continues to grow! I actually had a meeting with my local MLA, Mr. R.J. Sigurdson (UCP). MLA for Highwood, to set in motion regulation surrounding dog breeding. There is much legislation and regulation regarding animal husbandry where it concerns livestock, but the system falls short with protecting domesticated pets. We are on a mission to see the implementation of specific requirements and licensing in order to breed domestic pets in Alberta. Our reproduction veterinarian, Dr. Marco Bregliano DVM, Dip.ACT , has expressed his interest in the matter as well and it's great to have that support!
If you would like to add your voice in support of regulation and licensing in the matter of animal husbandry in Alberta, please write your MLA. Not sure who your MLA is? Here is a helpful link: Find my MLA (Legislative Assembly of Alberta)
