Shivering Rock Australian Labradoodles

Breeding high quality, health Authentic Australian Labradoodle puppies

About Shivering Rock

We are a small earth-friendly breeder.  Most of the products we use in our business, as well as our daily lives are eco-friendly, from the cleaners we use in our home to the shampoos we bathe our pups with, to the bamboo and recycled paper our contracts and business cards are printed on.  We strive to put our best foot forward, not only for our pups but for our environment as well.

 

A Bit About Us

Many say “dog is man’s best friend” and “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”.  Dogs and diamonds aside, Jerry and I have been each other’s best friend for 20 years and married for fifteen.  We met when we both worked in the restaurant industry…  Years later, we walked under the Golden Arches®, I to wed my Burger King®, he to marry his Dairy Queen®…and now we live happily in our little Pizza Hut®.  While Jerry still works in the restaurant field, I now have the opportunity to stay home with all of our kids (both the two-legged and four-legged varieties).

Our history with animals has been a lengthy one, having had pets of all sorts throughout most of our lives, including:  guinea pigs, rabbits, cats, dogs, ferrets, American flying squirrels, sugar gliders…and even a Caiman and coatimundi.  We have always had a fond love and respect for any furry friend in our keep.

 

The Rest of Shivering Rock

Supervisor of Dog-Sitting: 

Gramma is our 24/7/365 dog sitter and, along with Jerry, one of our puppy midwives.  Only a short time ago she didn’t “know nothin’ ‘bout birthin’ puppies” but with her nursing background, she was a quick learner and is now “an old hand”.  Gramma is appreciated every day for all of her hard work and is worth much more than her weight in dog treats.  She has been quoted as saying, “I want to have a word with St. Francis when I reach those Pearly Gates.”

Socialization Team:

Our team includes our daughter, Jerika; son, Jaden and “adopted” daughter, Sara.  Each one of the kids brings with them their own unique qualities in socializing the pups.  Sara is very playful with the pups; Jerika is loving, yet firm and Jaden…well, he’s usually the chew toy.
