ABOUT US – SWINGING GATE LABRADOODLES NORTH CAROLINA
Jenny Blume, owner of Swinging Gate Australian Labradoodles is the East Coast’s premier breeder of the Miniature Australian Labradoodle. The idea for Swinging Gate Labradoodles was born out of Jenny’s desire to find a new personal companion for herself. After many months of painstaking research, she discovered Whispering Winds Australian Labradoodles out of Washington State. She contacted owner Gail Widman, and soon made her way across the country. It wasn’t long before her desire to obtain a new puppy developed into a yearning to bring this incredible breed to Eastern part of the United States.
The Swinging Gate family got off to a modest start with the arrival of Whispering Winds Kaki. A very pregnant Misty Point Sandy Beach sired by Aaprina in Boo-Boo’s E-3 “Taz”, was quick to follow and a new home filled with vibrant high quality Labradoodles was established.
Not too long after it’s conception, Swinging Gate Labradoodles was a family affair. Rachel Cranfill, Jenny’s daughter, found her passion for this amazing breed while helping out behind the scenes. Now, as Co-Owner of SGL, Rachel is at the forefront of what it means to have a successful and healthy breeding program. As she says, “I get to help future SGL families adopt their forever doodles! What could be better than that? The world of breeding has dramatically changed since we began in 2009. We raise the highest quality Australian Labradoodle in temperament and personality, while also maintaining the highest standards in testing and breeding practices. I am very proud of what my mother started, and what we both continue to accomplish every day.”
Here at Swinging Gate, no decision having to do with our family of Labradoodles is made lightly. A great deal of effort goes in to finding and ultimately breeding our dogs. We take into consideration multiple elements such as an animal’s pedigree, temperament and body structure when researching potential additions to our growing family. It is our hope that the care we take in selecting our breeding stock is evident in the puppies we are fortunate enough to birth and raise in our home.
Each puppy, from the moment it is born, lives as a member of our family. We begin to train our dogs before they leave for their new homes. These puppies are hand raised to ensure that once adopted out they will effortlessly assimilate into your own family. Doodle love for all!
A proud member of the Australian Labradoodle Club of America, it is our goal here at Swinging Gate to provide the most loving environment possible for our puppies. We work with only the best breeders in our endeavors and prefer the low volume high quality approach for adopting out our puppies.
Our multi-generational Australian Labradoodles are bred from parents out of Tegan Park and/or Rutland Manor Research Centers in Australia. Staying true to the vision of those who founded this incredible breed is an important element of our breeding philosophy.
