We have implemented a Guardian Program is to ensure all breeding dogs live their best life in their forever homes without ever being kenneled or rehomed. This allows us to expand our breeding program knowing that each and every dog is loved and cared for as they deserve. Unfortunately, we can only keep so many dogs in our home...which is why the Guardian Program was developed.
The Process – When we have a prospective breeding dog, we will locate a suitable home for the dog to live forever. This dog will live in your home as your family pet, while Sugarwood Australian Labradoodles retains the breeding rights of the dog until breeding career is completed. This guardian program allows families to have a "pick of the litter" puppy that will also be fully health tested at our expense. The Guardian Home must be willing to loan the dog to us for testing, breeding, whelping, and raising puppies. After the dog has finished their breeding career, the dog will be spayed/neutered (at our expense) and full ownership of the dog will be transferred to you.
The Guardian Program is designed to benefit all involved- the dog, the Guardian Family, and Sugarwood Australian Labradoodles. Read through some of the benefits...
1. The breeding dogs benefit greatly from the Guardian Program because they will live in a loving, forever home. They will never be kenneled or have a lack of love and attention.
2. Guardian Program families have the opportunity to get a "pick of the litter" puppy that is fully health tested at a reduced rate. Sugarwood Australian Labradoodles adoption price is $2800.00. The cost of a guardian program puppy is $500.00, which will be reimbursed upon completion of their breeding career per contract as our way of saying "thank you" for participating in our Guardian Program. Furthermore, during times the dog is whelping and raising puppies (usually 6-7 weeks per litter) Guardian Homes have opportunities to take vacations without the expense of boarding the dog.
3. Sugarwood Australian Labradoodles has peace of mind in knowing that our breeding dogs are in loving homes receiving the attention they deserve. This allows us to grow our program safely and responsibly.
