We run a responsible and passionate breeding program in peaceful Northwest Ohio about 45 minutes west of Toledo. Over the years, we have shared our love with many dogs, but the day we welcomed a tiny Labradoodle puppy into our home, our world was forever changed! We later gravitated toward the Australian Labradoodle which is a combination of Lab, Poodle and Cocker Spaniel. We liked the consistency of a dog that has been bred mindfully, protected, and constantly improved and perfected for so many generations. The AL community of breeders is a professional group and one we are proud to be a part of.
We appreciate how the Australian Labradoodle breed has been strictly regulated by associations like the Worldwide Australian Labradoodle Association (WALA). There are very strict guidelines in place for breeders to follow in order to be registered in this association. This helps prevent the animals from passing down health issues and protect them from being overbred. All of our breeding dogs must be cleared by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) for hips & elbows, as well as eye certification prcd-PRA (Progressive Retinol Atrophy). They are also DNA tested for issues such as EIC (Exercise Induced Collapse), IC-Locus (Improper Coat/Furnishings), Von Willebrand Disease 1, HNK, DM (Degenerative Myelopathy) & more. All this to ensure that parents are healthy and your puppy will be too! Our pups are reared using the Puppy Culture Method. We work with our puppies daily to help socialize and make them the best pups they can be! Greystone pups do their ENS & ESI exercises from 3-16 days of life, which should help them later in life.
Our dogs & puppies are loved & played with by kids and adults. All of our dogs live in loving forever homes whether ours or our Guardian Homes. If you are interested in being a part of our Guardian Program read more about it to see if it would be a good fit for you.
