Guardian Home Program

Our guardian home program ensures all breeding dogs live the pampered life they deserve with their own forever family.  Being a guardian family for a dog can be an excellent way to have a top quality dog for a family pet. Guardian families allow us to be exceptional breeders of Australian Labradoodles by allowing us to have multiple potential breeding dogs in our program that live in a family environment. We are thankful and appreciative for the role these families play in the future of the Australian Labradoodle breed.


We place the "pick of the litter" in its forever homes with select, local families and we retain breeding rights for a short amount of time. Breeding dogs are chosen for their temperament, coat and confirmation.


Guardians pay $1000 deposit refundable after the breeding contract is fulfilled. We pay for all breeding-related expenses, including health testing. The guardian family is responsible for all the routine costs of owning a dog (such as vaccinations, heartworm preventative, and grooming). When the guardian dog's breeding career is over, three litters for females, the dog will be spayed/neutered. There is no purchase price; the deposit will be refunded.​


There are certain requirements for providing a guardian home for one of our dogs. To be considered, Guardian families must:




Females: Females in guardian homes will have 3 litters for Happy-Go-Lucky Labradoodles. The family must notify us at the first sign of her heat. We will need access to her for breeding and she is returned to guardian family until just before whelping time. She stays with her puppies until properly weaned. Once her breeding career is over, she will be spayed and remain the forever pet of the guardian family.


Males: Males are usually retained for about 6 years, but do not need to leave their families for long periods. Once his breeding career is over, he will be neutered.
