Why Use Guardian Homes?
At Discovery Tails Labradoodles, we believe all dogs deserve to be in a loving home and not have to live in a kennel. Because of this, our breeding dogs will be either loving members of our family or live with another family that will provide them the love and attention they need. Because we are committed to producing the highest quality puppies we can, we raise our breeding girl's puppies in our home, where they are loved and handled by adults and children before they go to their forever homes. In order to expand our breeding program, we need the help of qualified Guardian Homes willing to raise breeding dogs for us in their homes with all of the love and care that we would give them if we could keep them all ourselves!
What Is A Guardian Home?
A Guardian Home is a person or family that acquires one of our breeding quality puppies to become a member of their family. Guardians must have an adult home most of the day and be available for breeding in our home or the guardian's. They must agree to follow the conditions set forth under contract by Discovery Tails Labradoodles while the dog is in our breeding program. When the dog is retired from breeding, we pay for spaying or neutering, and the contract expires. The dog then remains with the Guardian Home for life.
What Are The Benefits To You?
You will receive the finest quality breeding puppy chosen by the breeder, to be your forever companion for FREE.
We pay breeding related expenses only. The guardian is responsible for day to day expenses, feeding, training, veterinary care, etc.
You are preventing a breeding dog from ever having to experience kennel life!
