Guardian Homes

 We Believe that every puppy/dog deserves a loving home, with a family of their own, so we have included Guardian homes into our breeding program that will help ensure that our future mothers will have their own special family.  

What is a Guardian Home?

A guardian home is where we place a puppy/dog in their forever home, and we retain the breeding rights for a certain amount of litters. The dog would live with their Guardian family and come to our home for breeding and when she is ready to have her puppies.  Guardian Families are responsible for the day-to-day care/cost of the dog, while we are responsible for any breeding-related costs.

Guardian families will be monetarily compensated for every litter the dog has. After the dog retires from our breeding program, she will then be spayed and will continue to live with her family. 

 

All puppies that are a part of our Guardian Program will enter our Head Start Program and will be crate trained before going to their Guardian home.  Adult dogs will be house trained, crate trained, and will know basic obedience.
