GUARDIAN HOME PROGRAM
What is a Guardian Home?
We believe all of our breeding dogs should be raised in a loving home. This program allows families to have a pick-of-the-litter breeding dog at a significantly reduced price. While we retain the breeding rights to the guardian dog, the dog will live in your home as your family pet.
Our mama guardian dogs are bred shortly after they begin their second heat cycle (approximately 18 moths old). They are then returned to their guardian home family for the duration of the pregnancy until approximately 14-10 days prior to the due date. At that time, the mamas are brought to our home where they will whelp their litter and remain with us until their puppies are weaned (approximately 7 weeks).
Our daddy guardian dogs are used for stud services beginning as early as 8 months until they are retired. Most of our guardian dogs are retired by a certain number of litters or bu the time they are 6 years old. At that point, we will pay to have the guardian dog spayed/neutered and full ownership is transferred to the guardian family.
We require an $800 deposit to enter our Guardian Home Program. The guardian family will be reimbursed $200 per litter every time a female guardian dog whelps a litter of puppies and $100 every time a male sires a littler of puppies until the deposit is fully refunded.
Why do we offer a Guardian Home Program?
Placing our breeding dogs in a guardian home benefits the dog, the guardian family, and the breeder. While we would love to keep all of our breeding dogs right in our home, we lack the physical capacity to do so. Instead, the guardian dog is raised in your home where they are given the love, attention and socialization that they need. This program allows the guardian to own the best (pick of the litter) Majestic Doodle for an $800.00 deposit, instead of the full adoption fee ($3,200.00) and we are able to continue offering other families amazing litters of puppies from these Majestic parents.
