Guardian Home Information

Guardian Homes are a great opportunity for the right family. I use guardian homes so that I can further my breeding program without having too many dogs at my own home.  Guardianships enable breeding dogs to live one on one with a family while they are participating in my program.  They are loved and cared for by the same family they will be living with when they retire. Guardian Dogs are placed with a minimal upfront fee, and are paid a small stipend for every litter produced.

The pup will have health testing done to assure breeding quality. In the event of a pup not passing the testing, the guardianship will be terminated, dog spayed or neutered, and guardian will have ownership of pup with no further monies due.  Life changing results will be considered individually.   There will be a specific contract for each guardianship arrangement.  Guardians must not have any other intact dogs for the entire duration of the guardian contract (spayed or neutered pets are fine). NON Smoking homes only. Guardian  homes are responsible for taking their dog to have his/her eyes tested annually at an approved location (at my expense).

Female guardian dogs are usually under contract for 4 litters.  I usually will breed them back to back twice so they may retire early, unless my vet recommends differently or timing doesn't work out for me (overlapping litters, etc).  The contract may be extended if both the guardian and myself agree to it, or shortened if I decide no more litters are desired out of the girl.  Guardians of females are required to alert me to when their girl is coming into season, and make her available to me for the breeding process. Approximately one week prior to whelping, the girl will come to my home for delivery and care of her pups.  Once the pups are weaned (approx. 6 weeks) the female can come back to her guardian home. Guardian families are generally not allowed to visit while the pups are young, I have found it is easier on the moms if they don't have the distraction and confusion of guardians coming and going.

All guardian moms are required to feed the same food we use until they are retired. We feed Life's Abundance! (All Life Stage Dry Dog Food)

Male dogs are contracted for a period of time rather than a number of litters.Guardians of male dogs must have the boy available as needed for natural breedings, or for semen collection by a repro vet.

I am currently seeking guardian homes for the following dogs...

 

Mini female - black and white parti, will be around 20 pounds. ready in December...

 

Upcoming prospects possibly looking for guardian homes

mini/medium Australian Labradoodle,
chocolate or caramel, ready early January

Bernedoodle female - will be 40-45 pounds ready in February. She is a first generation Bernedoodle, so the size and coat are a little unpredictable. Like all first generation Bernedoodles, She could shed some, so a home with allergies is not a good option for her.

 

 

 


 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

Temporary Guardian Homes...

Occasionally I will hold back a puppy that I feel is breeding quality, but not neccessarily needed in my program. In order to offer these pups to approved breeders, I would like them to have their health screening started. These tests will begin around 16 weeks old.  Temporary guardians are homes that care for these puppies until and while they are getting their testing underway, raising them indoors as family companions, usually until about 5-6 months old.  If health testing is not passed, puppies may be offered to these guardians as altered pets, for a discounted adoption fee.  If they pass, puppies will be sold to approved breeders that will raise them in a home environment.  Temporary guardians must understand and accept the fact that they are only a temporary home for the puppy, and be very willing to let him/her leave when the time comes.  This is not for everyone!  After a puppy does leave, another temporary guardianship may be started, or a permanent one. Guardians are responsible for socializing, housebreaking, and puppy manners. This is a great way to earn a little extra money AND have the loving companionship of a sweet natured pick of the litter puppy for a couple of months!
Temporary guardians are paid for their time when the agreed upon time is over-
amount to be decided by individual contract
