Aussie/Labradoodle – Looking for a Guardian Family

Guardian Home Program Basics

In order to give OUR breeding dogs the very best life possible,  it was important to limit how many dogs we personally kept and housed BUT also we understood in order to breed the highest quality dogs which is our MAIN GOAL, we also needed to keep, evaluate, and ADD quality bloodlines to our breeding program. So, how was all of this going to be possible?

For us and many like us the answer was the Guardian Program.

Our Guardian Dog program has allowed us and other dog breeders like us to expand our dog breeding program with pride and has helped us to breed the very highest quality Labradoodle and Aussiedoodle puppies the right way..Out of kennels and IN OUR LOVING ARMS!!

As a Guardian home, you get a free puppy and the dog stays with you as your family dog for the life of the dog and we retain breeding rights for a certain amount of litters starting at sexual maturity and ending once the female has whelped a set amount of litters.. each guardian dog contract is unique but it’s usually between 1 and 4 litters depending on what we’re trying to accomplish with that particular female and how well she reacts to being a Mother.

Our guardians are responsible for the dog’s regular health maintenance: annual exams, vaccines, food, etc. We pay for genetic health testing required for breeding, and all breeding related expenses. Once the dog has passed their genetic health testing she/he is added to our breeding program. We decide when she will be bred and to whom she will be bred too, she stays with her guardian family during her pregnancy (63 days) and then is returned to us at least a week before her due date to deliver (whelp) and then raise her puppies (8 weeks). Once her puppies are weaned then she’s returned to her guardian family.

We provide our guardian families with a monetary litter gift per litter their female guardian dog whelps. This is not the case with our male guardian dogs.

When the dog is older and completes his/her breeding obligations, we pay for spay/neuter and your dog comes home to enjoy the wonderful life you have provided for him/her since puppyhood. Females in guardian homes may have up to four litters (minimum of three) prior to being spayed, usually by their 4th birthday.

There are many things that Guardian families need to consider. Guardians of females sometimes have to deal with several heat cycles and keeping their girl protected from unwanted males. The Guardian family will need to learn the signs of a heat cycle and be willing to communicate, cooperate and coordinate with us to ensure a successful breeding. Because of canine venereal diseases,  male guardian dogs can only mate with approved females.

Dog-32Qualifying to be a Guardian Home:

  • Guardians must have previous dog experience
  • Guardians must own and live in a home with a fully fenced yard
  • Guardians must keep the dog on a leash or in a fenced area
  • Guardians must be willing to train the dog the very basic obedience commands (off, down, sit, back, leave it, crate)
  • Guardians must ensure the puppy is socialized to adults, children and other animals – SUPER IMPORTANT

  • Guardians must communicate, cooperate and coordinate with the breeder regarding testing, mating, whelping, and other breeding related activities

In closing…

The Guardian Home program is actually a very simple program even though it may seem like there are a lot of details. The main thing to remember is, if we as humans truly reject the idea of puppy mills, then to my knowledge there is no better way than the guardian home program to help reputable breeders continue to breed dogs in a humane and loving environment and out of cages so in order to continue to produce HAPPY and HEALTHY puppies for families who are looking for a forever pet or are in need of a service dog we have adopted this wonderful program and it has worked very well for us and the families involved.
