Labrador Retriever Breeder - Dogs - SA : Perfect Pets Profile
Galestorm Labradors - Over 30 year experience producing quality pedigree ANKC Labradors of true type and temperament.
Galestorm Labradors is a relatively small kennel only breeding on average 1 well thought out litter per year. I began showing & breeding Labradors in 1987, first in Michigan USA then moving to Adelaide South Australia in 2000 and importing 3 of my foundation Labradors with me.
For over 30 years Galestorm Labradors and direct descendants of Galestorm Labradors have been involved in various canine disciplines. This includes producing several conformation Show Champions, Multi Best in Specialty Show winners, Retrieving trials - Novice, Restricted & All Age, dogs for Assistance and of course the cherished pet.
Over the years I have welcomed many new members to our Galestorm family. It's always a pleasure to hear updates from people who own a Labrador from dogs I bred many years ago but more importantly to know how much their Galestorm Labrador was a part of their life.
Feedback from past pet owners is the best resource of information I can have when planning future litters. It's the breeder that knows their bloodline and has that extensive knowledge of what they have produced over the years and have an understanding of what has worked well, what has not and why it didn't.
My ethos as a dog breeder is having an intentional endgame in mind. To only produce healthy and happy puppies with a desired expression of true Labrador type and temperament then work to isolate and homogenise those expressions. My mantra is "be purposeful, transparent and communicate". In the end we as breeders try to do everything possible to produce healthy and happy puppies.
I am a member in good standing of Dogs SA/ANKC, The Labrador Club of SA inc. (Current Committee member) and a member of The Labrador Club of VIC. Internationally, I am member of the American Kennel Club (AKC) and various Labrador clubs in USA.
About our Dogs
We generally only breed blacks but on occasion have produced a yellow or chocolate. All Galestorm breeding dogs are ANKC registered pedigreed, have ANKC's required suitability health testing, exemplary temperaments and any other recommended health clearances. For example, Hip/Elbow scores, up to date DNA tests for genetic disorders, Heart Echocardiogram and Eye Certification.
Our puppies are born in the house and held daily. They are Vet health- certified, wormed, vaccinated, microchipped and Pedigree registered Limited with ANKC. Puppies also come with historical information on their parents, I.e., copies of their pedigrees, DNA profile & genetic testing, registered CHEDS (canine hip elbow scheme) and a lifetime of breeders' knowledge.
