What is the Cost to being a Guardian?
Guardian Home Families are responsible for general routine veterinary care and wellness of the guardian puppy placed with them, that includes annual vaccines, feeding it high quality dog food, grooming, heatworm, flea and tick prevention, exercise, socialization, and lots of love and care!
Any breeding related medical costs for the guardian dog are at the expense of A Sunshine Labradoodle. Our Guardian homes are only responsible for the maintenance and medical care just as they would to their own dogs.
Benefits of a Guardian Home
A Guardian home gets the very best of an Australian Labradoodle! We choose our breeding dogs based on the best qualities of this unique breed with their temperament coming first. Guardian families receive their guardian puppy completely health tested for breeding at the expense of A Sunshine Labradoodle.
Guardian homes get to enjoy the excitement of being part of our breeding program and see the offspring of the very own guardian dog. Lastly, guardian families ensure that guardian puppies are raised and socialized in a good, happy, loving environment.
Requirements of Becoming a Guardian Home
Guardian Families are required to live within 25 miles of our home for a female and 25 miles of our home for a male. It is necessary you provide a secure and safe environment for the guardian puppy, own your own home, and have a schedule that will allow your puppy not to be left alone for extensive periods.
Guardian puppies MUST be indoor dogs. Guardian families must have reliable transportation and the willingness to bring the guardian dog to us when needed for breeding.
