Being a Guardian Home is an excellent, low cost way to have a top quality Labradoodle as a family pet. Because we are a small family run business we do not have nor do we want a kennel based program. Since we cannot house all of our breeding dogs here at home we are offering the Guardian Home program for our potential breeding dogs. We want our breeding dogs to be raised in caring loving homes as family pets.
As a Guardian Home you agree to raise, train and care for a dog throughout their entire breeding career.
When you are chosen to be part of the Serenity Springs Labradoodle Guardian-Home program, we will place you with a pick of the litter puppy at approximately 8 weeks old. A non-refundable security fee will be collected and the new puppy becomes your family pet. You will pay for all normal cost of the care and medical expenses of raising a family pet. Serenity Springs will pay for all reproductive testing for your puppy between ages 10-12 months.
If your dog does not pass it’s health testing for breeding dogs, you will pay for the spay or neuter of the dog and we will retire the dog from our breeding program and it will remain your family pet, at no additional fee to you.
If your dog does pass its health testing it will become a breeding dog for Serenity Springs Labradoodles. If you have a female she will deliver between 3-4 litters for Serenity Springs. She will come to our home during her heat cycle for breeding, and then back home to you. She will remain with you throughout her pregnancy and come back to us during her delivers and the puppies are weaned. Once she has had 3-4 litters you will have her spayed and she will retire with you at no additional fee
If you are a guardian home for a male stud, your life will be much easier. Once he passes his reproductive testing there will be times when natural breeding is required and he will need to come to our home during that process. We also will be working with the International Canine Semen Bank in Grass Valley, CA. They will collect semen from the stud that we can freeze to use at a later date for breeding purposes through Artificial Insemination. Once we have determined we have used him to the fullest potential for our breeding program we will notify you. At that time you will have him neutered per our agreement and he will retire with you at no additional fee.
