About Us

Hello we are the Heggs Family!

We are a large, diverse family composed of a multitude of abilities and special needs. We could not have dreamed that one day we would be here, having built one of the most non-traditional families with complex needs we could have imagined. We have found ourselves, at so many times in our lives, given opportunities to enrich our lives while helping others. This is what has brought us together as The Heggs Family.

 

The most recent opportunity to add to our family has been with our three beloved four legged members! We have always had a four legged family member. After losing our long time family pet Cocoa to old age, we began our two year search for just the right breed of dog to add to our family. We were looking for a dog that could act as a therapy dog for one of our adult sons, as well as an overall great addition to our family! Over the course of our research we came across just the dog that could meet all of our needs...the Multi-generational Australian Labradoodle, proven to be exceptional family companions! Their steadfast temperament, fun and loving personalities, eagerness to learn, and non-shedding, hypoallergenic coat fits incredibly with our family and lifestyle. Australian Labradoodles are well known to be trained as great therapy or even service dogs. After doing our research and realizing what an exceptional breed of dog the Australian Labradoodle really was and the potential these animals had for truly enhancing the lives of so many, especially those with disabilities, we wanted to develop our own breeding program.

 

While recognizing the barriers each of us may have in life , the one common thread was the love and calm state these dogs brought us. After several family meetings each person in our family considered which areas they could contribute in and areas each of us could work on that would push us to expand our abilities personally and in the program. We became very excited! Individually we would have purpose; our contributions valued and together get to see our dreams coming true! Each of us has become a valued member that contributes to our program, we are learning together, and becoming connected with our four legged family members! We are happy to have found our Multi-generational Australian Labradoodles and cannot wait to see more families enjoying their company, gaining invaluable life lessons, and learning more about themselves, as well as growing as a family unit no matter how that may look.

 

We live in Chilliwack, BC  Canada. We are dedicated to raising Medium and Small, Multigenerational Australian Labradoodles with careful consideration to the best health standards, continued socialization, exceptional temperaments, and lush non-shedding hypoallergenic coats.
