What Is A Guardian Home?


I have enjoyed the opportunity of acquiring English Type Golden Retrievers from different breeders around the world.  Working with other breeders allows us to diversify our lines and we will continue this trend with our Australian Labradoodles. I want all of my babies to live in their forever homes and be well mannered, happy dogs with a great family life.  So, we have opted to share our fur-babies with friends and family around the area.  


We want our puppies/dogs to have stability and consistency in their lives.  A guardian program works out great for the dogs, us and their guardian families.  Our dogs live with their forever family and come to visit us as needed.  Our puppies/dogs come back socializing, breeding and when it's time to have a litter of babies. The puppies are whelped in our home, raised by us, your are welcome to visit and snuggle puppies and visit your girl and are encouraged to do so often.  In this fashion the dogs get all of their needs met and have two loving families that they know and grow to love.


We are currently looking for individuals that would love to be a part of our guardian family.  This is a great opportunity to love and raise the first pick puppy from one of our litters.  Your responsibility includes but is not limited to; loving on the puppy and helping him/her to grow into a well rounded, well socialized, extremely well mannered, trained adult dog.  


Our guardian families cover everyday vet care, food and training as well as offer an abundance of love and attention on a daily basis.  We cover any and all expenses related to breeding and genetic testing.  


Our girls usually have 3 litters in their lifetime. They are raised in your home, cared for as your dog and incorporated into our breeding program, hearts and lives.  Our breeding girls can live up to 3 hours away.... so anywhere from Atlanta, Georgia | Birmingham, Alabama | Tallahassee, Florida | Jacksonville, Florida, and all cities in-between.    Transporting the girls back and forth as needed is the responsibility of the guardian family.  We will help when we can but ultimately it is the on the guardian family.

At times we have adult females that have already had a couple of litters and have already been professional trained and are house broken that may be looking for a forever home that have a couple of litters to yet to go but are partly finished with their breeding career. 


Our males usually stay a part of our breeding program for

about 6 six years. (Our boys must live within 30 minutes of our home.) Anywhere in the Dothan Wiregrass Area... anywhere within a 30 minute drive)


The adoption fee for one of our guardian puppies is half the price of our normal adoption fees but you are receiving the best puppy structurally and mentally from the litter.  On or before your pups 1st birthday if you have your dog proficient in the commands that we use: sit, here, down and break plus your dog passes the AKC Good Canine Citizens test we will reimburse you $500 at the time of your guardian girls first litter of puppies.  If you take your guardian dogs training to the next level and get her certified through a professional therapy organization we will reimburse you an additional $500 at the time of your guardian dogs 2nd litter.  We are doing this as an incentive for training. We want great ambassadors of the breed circling our community.
