After joining my mother in the breeding aspects, I developed a love for genetics. I was fascinated with researching bloodlines, bone structure, temperament, and soundness. Even though my mom loved breeding purebred golden retrievers, there was always that part of her that wanted no hair, and believe me, that is not accomplished with the golden retriever! Thus, the goldendoodles were born in our house. It was at this time that I began researching the Australian Labradoodle. In 2001, I was introduced to this beautiful breed. It took a few years to finally have my own! In that time, I completed high school, and entered university, where I studied animal genetics and reproduction. In the summer of 2008, I graduated from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor's degree in Science. In June of 2009, I married my best friend Jake. The dogs became his passion as well, and together we look after our growing group of pets! The joke is that every few years I get itchy to go back to school, so I did...and in the summer of 2011, I graduated from the University of Western with my bachelors in Education...and 2 days later, we had our first baby - a little boy named Tristan!
