I am passionate about the Australian Labradoodle and educating people about the uniqueness of this breed. I love helping ALD owners and their groomers learn how to care for the coat and how to groom an ALD properly. I have been grooming these dogs for 14 years. I put a lot of time into training my puppies with the ultimate goal of having them be therapy or service dogs.

I look forward to being part of the growing and changing ALCA. My excitement on how the ALD has impacted my life and all the families’ lives I have worked with, over the years, is hard to contain. I am excited about the opportunity to be on the ALCA board. I would like the club to establish a nationwide networking team of fellow breeders to encourage referrals to one another with the ALCA’s high standards for breeding quality and testing. I would also like to help coordinate regional Australian Doodle Romps where owners and breeders can come together to celebrate these wonderful dogs. Let’s work together to encourage each other so we become a collective community rather than just individual breeders. Imagine the impact we can have as a whole versus alone. Let’s all get excited about the future of the Authentic Australian Labradoodle and the ALCA.

I am a wife of 30 years, mother, grandmother, stepmother, foster mother, and adoptive mother. I am retired, (3xs) and believe that life is what you make it. I live by the mantra, if you don’t want to get burned, stay out of the kitchen, or if you are big enough to do, then be big enough to deal with the consequences, because while you can choose an action…you cannot choose the reaction. My life scripture: Col 3:23 And whatsoever you do, do it well, as unto the Lord, not unto men.

I am a retired Police Commander from the DC Police Department having spent 28 years in service.

I firmly believe that any job you do, you should do it well or not do it at all. Your behavior impacts all those in your profession and people remember the bad much longer than the good.

I initially went looking for an allergy-friendly dog that my grandson could sleep with. When I chose my breeder, I also chose a friend. I decided to breed because secretly I probably missed my calling in the medical field and loved the idea of learning the science behind dog breeding. I believe everyone I encounter can and often do teach me something, and no one should be ridiculed for trying to learn.

I am happy to be a member of the ALCA team and to be of service to those who might need assistance.

If we all do it well, produce the best pups possible, the reputation of the ALD breed and all the breeders of the ALD can only explode. This is a fabulous breed and I love nothing better than producing fabulous pups.

History for the ALCA

Rutland Manor and Tegan Park were sending breeding dogs to the United States.  In 2005 The Australian Labradoodle Club of America (ALCA)  was founded to preserve the Authentic Australian Labradoodle and to move towards pure breed status.

ALCA is a vital presence for the Authentic Australian Labradoodles, helping to maintain quality and support for the many breeders that believe the Authentic Australian Labradoodle is the perfect family pet, with many becoming therapy and service dogs. ALCA is the Premier Club for the Authentic Australian Labradoodles.
