What is a Guardian home?

Guardianship allows us to expand our breeding program and never have dogs living without their own loving home and family. Guardianship is basically having a loving family dog for its entire life that you share with us for breeding purposes.

How does it work?

Guardian families work together with us as partners and understand that we retain full breeding rights of the dog until it has fulfilled the breeding contract.

Once the dog reaches the age of sexual maturity, we will then require the dog be brought to our home for mating when the dog comes into heat. This will typically be between 5 – 7 days, and then the dog goes back home to you for the remainder of her pregnancy. We will request she be returned to us again right before her litter is due and she will remain with us to whelp her litter and help raise her puppies here in our home for up to 7 weeks. Once the puppies are all weaned she may go back home again to her Guardian family.

If you are receiving a Guardian Home Puppy we ask for monthly photos and updates during the first year so that we can watch her develop, and update our website. We also will require a visit to our Guardian Family’s home every few months during the first year to assess the Guardian Puppy, as well as build a relationship with her for the future. Occasionally, we will ask our Guardian Families to bring the puppy to us for a visit so that she can get comfortable with our home for when she will be here with us in the future having babies.

We Love our Guardian Homes!! Join Our Family!
Guardian Home is a term for a family who raises and loves one of our breeding dogs for LIFE.
The dog is under contract for breeding and will retire with the Guardian Home once the contract is complete. ​Many of our breeding dogs reside in Guardian Homes and lives the BEST LIFE!
Who qualifies for a Guardianship dog?
We are very selective who we choose to become guardian families. We want to make sure that our
dogs go to safe homes where they will be well cared for and not allowed to escape and get lost or
get run over by a car. We expect the dogs to be family members. We look for people who have had dogs
before. The ideal person is one who has had a dog die of old age. This is a person who knows how
to take care of a dog and is willing to make a commitment for life to one of our dogs.
