guardianIn order to give our breeding dogs the very best life possible, it is important to us to limit how many dogs we personally keep and house. However, we also understand that in order to breed the highest quality pets which is our MAIN GOAL, we also need to keep, evaluate/test, retire and add quality bloodlines to our breeding program. We are quick to resign a dog to PET status only in the event that they do not SAIL through our very strict genetic screening among other strict screening qualities they must have or not have. So, what is the best way that this could be done?

For us as well as many like us, the answer is the Guardian Program.

Our Guardian Dog program allows us and other pet perfecters like us to expand our canine breeding program with pride and has helped to breed the very highest quality puppies the right way, Out of kennels and into loving family lives!

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 5 litters depending on what we’re trying to accomplish with that particular female and how well she reacts to being a mother. There are many important aspects to take into consideration when breeding to the highest standards.

Our Guardians are responsible to keep on hand all health/vet/vaccine records and records of flea/tick prevention, heartworm prevention (we prefer you use Interceptor Plus monthly). We pay for genetic health testing required for breeding, and all breeding related expenses. We decide when she will be bred and to whom she will be bred to, she stays with her guardian family during most of her pregnancy (up to 63 days) and then is returned to us about a week before her due date to deliver (whelp) and then raise her puppies (8 weeks). Once her puppies are weaned and go home between 8-10 weeks then- she’s returned to her guardian family.

We generally offer our Guardian Program for our females, also as a benefit to secure them in their forever homes early.

There is a detailed contract that goes with the Guardian Program. Please contact us if you are interested in joining our Guardian Home program, to apply for guardianship and review/sign the contract.

We may have a puppy or an adult dog that we would be placing with a Guardian Home, depending on availability and guardian's preference.
