What is A Guardian Home?
We currently have dogs/puppies available for possible guardian home families. Information on what our Guardian home is and how it works is listed below.
Our Guardian Home Program allows for families that live within a 100 miles of Plymouth, MA to have our “pick of the litter puppy”. From time to time we may have an excellent adolescent/adult breeding dog as well. These Guardian Home pooches are place for just a fraction of the price. The Guardian Home puppy or dog is part of the Guardian Home’s Family forever, while the breeding rights are retained by ALOPM. There are time limits on a breeding dogs career (each situation is slightly different so we prefer to work out specific details with each family on an individual basis.) Once the Guardian Dog has completed his/her breeding career, he/she will be spayed or neutered at our expense, and will remain a forever pet of their Guardian Family!
Is There a Cost Involved to Be a Guardian Home?
Yes. Basic vet bills, grooming food & everyday care. When the Guardian puppy/dog has completed its breeding career for us, we will transfer all registration paperwork into Guardians name.
Our Guardian Home Families are responsible for the general routine veterinary care and wellness of the Guardian puppy/dog placed with them. This means annual vaccines, feeding a high quality dog food, grooming, monthly heartworm prevention, flea/tick prevention, training, regular exercise and socialization, and most importantly all the love and care and attention possible.
Any “breeding related” medical costs for the Guardian Dog are the expense of ALOPM. Our Guardian Homes are only responsible for routine maintenance and medical care just as they would if they had their own dog.
What Are the Benefits and obligations of Being a Guardian Home?
A Guardian Family gets what we consider to be the very best that ALOPM has to offer in the Australian Labradoodle! This means that we choose our breeding stock based on the best qualities that families have known, loved, and come to expect in one of ALOPM. Not only are we known for our pooches exceptional beauty, outstanding health and fantastic overall consistency in temperament, you and your pooch will get to be a small part in the advancement of our wonderful breed.
Another added benefit to our Guardian Families is that their Guardian dog or puppy will be completely health tested at the expense of ALOPM prior to entering our breeding program at no cost to the Guardian Family. Our Guardian Families get to enjoy the excitement of being a part of our breeding program, and seeing the offspring of their very own Guardian dog be placed with families across the country bringing others the same joy and happiness that they have received from their Guardian Dog!
Please contact us if you are interested in getting more information on possibly becoming one of ALOPM guardian families. We look forward to working with some wonderful families through the Guardian Home process.
