In an effort to grow our Labradoodle family while ensuring that every breeding dog in our program receives a wonderful forever home with the love and attention they deserve, we are using a Guardian Home Program.
The guardian home dog will be a part of the guardian home’s family while the breeding rights are retained by Chickadee Labradoodles for a pre-set amount of time (at least 3 litters). After the guardian dog is finished with her breeding career, she will be spayed (we will cover the costs) and she will stay a forever pet of her family, who will not have to pay the purchase price for her. For Guardian Families who wish to go past three litters, there will be compensation.
Guardian families will have a legal contract with Chickadee Labradoodles through the duration of the guardian dog’s breeding career. Before being chosen as a guardian home, families will undergo a screening and an interview.
Guardian home families will be responsible for general routine veterinary care and health of their guardian dog. This includes feeding them a high quality dog food, grooming them on a regular basis (non-professional is fine), flea/tick prevention as needed, exercising them regularly, socialization, and above all, giving them love and companionship.
Any “breeding related” medical costs for the guardian dog will be covered by Chickadee Labradoodles.
Additionally, for each successful litter we will be giving our guardian families $500 to compensate for the inconvenience.
