Doctor DragonS & Black Beard DragonS
Hi I’m Tony Aldridge, owner of Doctor DragonS NOW Black Beard DragonS -by Doctor DragonS. We are Growing fast and getting noticed! We were on the front page of the paper. I was even a guest on a radio talk show (WYNG). We are now Approved Breeders for “Bearded Dragon Obsession”, & “Bearded Dragon Addicts” in 2015 we home just under 100 Bearded dragons. The 1st 3 months of 2016 we have home 111 dragons. Now with selling insects, Pillow and hammocks, we are growing fast.
Why bearded dragons?
Our thirteen year old son, Sean was visiting a neighbor and saw that they had pet tortoises. For weeks after, all we heard about was how much he wanted a turtle. We have four rescue dogs, Ziek – king shepherd, Bo – yellow lab, Alley – black and tan hound, and Duke – pit mix. We considered it and decided to take him to Pet-smart (just to look). To our surprise, it’s illegal to buy, sell, or own a regular turtle in Indiana. Wow! After looking around a little more my son spotted a baby bearded dragon, and that was his new obsession. Being a mother I knew that his hopes were high for getting a new pet, leaving empty-handed would be heartbreaking. So I caved and bought him this 4 inch long lizard with spikes. After a terrarium, lights, decor, insects, plants, bowls, substrate……. $360, later we were on our way back home with our new pet. Sean decided to name him Doc. I have a severe anxiety disorder, one night I was feeling overwhelmed and anxious, I picked up the little lizard that was scratching at his cage as if wanting picked up, and held. I held him tight and stroked his tail, almost immediately the anxiety dissipated and I felt calm. After the reaction I had to this little tiny bearded dragon, when I asked my husband, Tony if I could have one of my own, he was more than willing to oblige, and so a few days later we got Drake. And so on and so on. Their personalities, calm, docile nature, the funny way they scamper across our hardwood floors…. we were all soon very addicted. It amazed me to find out how little people knew about them or that they existed at all. With our new-found love and passion for these funny little creatures we decided to become breeders, so we could share our obsession and knowledge with others. AND THAT is how doctordragons.com was born, our first bearded dragon business. As time went on, we were searching online for a few new breeders, since most of our beardies were yet too young. I found several gorgeous dragons on blackbearddragons.com and purchased three. My husband was speaking to the owner of Black Beard Dragons and found out He wanted out of the business….. Would we like to buy his business?? Heck yeah!!! So we got a u-haul and drove 13 1/2 hours to Dover, Delaware to pick up 49 bearded dragons. That is how we also accumulated blackbearddragons. It was truly a blessing. -Helena
This is my wife Helena. We have been married for 5 years. She is the back bone of Doctor DragonS. Helena makes all the Hammock set, does all the fecal testing, mails out the insect orders, she is a mom, wife, business partner, and my Rock! Without Helena nothing would get done around here. This is a 24-7 job, but something we do together! Do not make her mad she is a pistol with a temper. I love her; but sometimes she has a way of telling people the blunt way. As a business that can sometimes be an issue, when someone makes her mad. I will stand by my wife and most of the time is it because I’m being to nice and someone is try to take advantage of that. Dragon Health 1st at Doctor DragonS, then our family. We are a for profit business, ask anyone that has been here every dime we make we put into dragons or rescuing Bearded DragonS.
What does Tony Do? I’m the cleaner of tanks, hydrator of insects, player of DragonS, father, husband, and the person that will keep Helena at Bay if she gets upset. I’m a retired Police officer, and Dragon lover….. that should be enough!
