GUARDIAN PROGRAM CONTRACT
Guardian Homes are a great opportunity for the right family. Guardianship enables my breeding dogs to live one on one with their furever family, being loved and care for while they are participating in my breeding program.
The Guardian family gets to participate in our Breeding Program (The “Miracle of life”) and they get to have a beautiful Labradoodle pup to add to their family at just the cost of care to maintain a healthy happy Doodle! In exchange Labradoodle Country will receive 1 litter of pups.
If interested in participating in our Guardian Puppy Program please contact me and let’s talk, smile!
Please only apply if you are able to provide proper care for the puppy and if the puppy will be an inside pet that will be a 100% part of your family, that is whole purpose of us allowing guardianship of our breeders!
