About Us

Who are we?

Hello! My name is Alyssa, and I am breeder based in Saint Louis, Missouri. I raise Australian Labradoodles in my home, with the help of my wonderful family. When I was a teenager, I visited the home of my best friend and daughter of Shadow Mountain Labradoodles and I fell in love with the Australian Labradoodle. 

When my friend and I began high school, Shadow Mountain retired a female and gave me and my family the chance to take her home. I had to beg my mom, and told her Tessa was perfect, sweet, motherly, and house trained. She said yes! My mom immediately fell in love with Tessa and claims Tessa as her own dog. Years later, my mom agreed to become a guardian home for a breeding female, who is now enjoying her retirement in our home. 

Over the years, I have participated in the internship opportunities that Shadow Mountain has offered which has led me to join their Raising the Breeder Bar program. Shadow Mountain created this program to give new breeders a solid understanding of correct practices. Joining the program led me to adopt Shadow Mountains Bright Star, Nova, to be my first breeding female.


I recently graduated from the University of Missouri-St Louis with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, emphasis in management. I am using my knowledge of business management, the guidance and teaching from the Raising the Breeder Bar program,  and my love and commitment to this breed, to bless families with a wonderful and loving new family companion.

My Goal

I am committed to breeding quality, loving family companions and I aim to spread the joy of owning a Gateway Labradoodle by reinforcing the natural qualities of the Australian Labradoodle; eagerness to please, intelligence, calmness and joy. Finding the perfect home for each individual puppy, by matching family and puppy personality, is key to the success and happiness of your new family companion.
