Hello & welcome to Secret Garden Labradors! We're sure you are wondering who the faces are behind the name, so we decided we'd throw in a little about us. Our Kennel Secret Garden is based off of our last name. We are Tracy & Rebecca Bloom. I, (Rebecca) have a passion for flowers, and owned my own wedding & floral business, so naturally I came up with something garden themed. We are a large family of 6! We have 4 beautiful children (2 girls & 2 boys) that keep them busy at home. Not to mention the dogs! Both Tracy & I have a huge love for Labradors that have correct conformation. After years of searching, Tracy finally found our foundation female, who is a huge part of our family. After our first breeding, I came in to contact with 2 wonderful mentors, and the rest is history. I currently do most of our handling and showing with the dogs. I absolutely loves being in the ring with the dogs, as well as obedience. I've also become interested in hunt test, and has just started out with dock diving. That's the great thing about labs. They are so versatile! Tracy will get in the ring if he has to, but with a 16 & 14 year old who are interested as well, he normally stays behind and takes care of his day job.
We currently have 2 locations, as my sister Jennifer has become interested in breeding as well. We are both located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, OR, and Jennifer in Southern WA. Our families loves all things outdoors, such as hiking, beaching, volleyball with our kids, and with the Mt. practically next door, and we spend some of our winter months on the slopes with our kids. We also love spending time with the dogs since they are such a large part of their lives! Normally if we can fit in the van or truck with the entire family, they are going with! We hope that you've enjoyed learning a small tidbit about our family, and we can't wait to meet yours!
