"Love at first sight" best describes my introduction to the Labradoodle breed back in 2001. While reading an article on Autism and the benefits of Labradoodles as companion dogs with ASD children, I simply became smitten. Our first Labradoodle joined our home in 2004 as a companion for our autistic son. Our 2nd Labradoodle, Charlie, has been with us since 2013. Our Labradoodles have continued to bring tremendous joy and love to our family and everyday life. In fact, they are the inspiration and motivation behind the creation of Brookside Labradoodles, and the direction of the next chapter of our lives. Since retiring from the business world and sending the last of our 6 children off to college, I can think of nothing better than to fill my days with what I love: sharing my love for Labradoodles.
Along with being a full time working mom, dogs have always been an integral part of my life. I have had many adventures with dogs over the years, from training with Sacramento County Sheriffs Department K-9 officers, to training drug detection dogs, to being a part of breeding and showing dogs in the AKC arena.
And now, I feel so fortunate to have the ultimate joy of the Australian Labradoodles.
