....Specializing in Medium, Standard & Australian Labradoodle Puppies
Sorry, no guardian dogs available at this time
Country Doodle Dogs Guardianship Contract:
A guardian puppy/dog is placed with a local family at a reduced cost (around $1500.). The benefits to the Guardian family are they receive a top-quality puppy/dog, that must meet the strictest requirements to be in our breeding program.
Another benefit with a breeding dog, is that she will benefit from an extended spay time. This is proven to a healthier prolonged life.
We always welcome our families to come visit their doggy and the new puppies, during their stay with us.
We offer boarding, if needed.
We what and welcome new friendships with our guardianship families.
Things to know…..
Once the guardian dog is of breeding age, on her second heat cycle, she would come stay with us to be bred for around a day. She is then returned to her guardian family where she will stay for the duration of her pregnancy until the week before her due date (55-60 days). A week before her due date she would come back to our home to deliver, raise, and wean her puppies for 6-7 weeks. We pay for all pregnancy-related veterinary expenses and testing. When she completes her breeding obligations, and she comes home to enjoy the wonderful life you have provided for her. Her obligation will be to be breed 3 times. These puppies must be beautiful, happy and healthy labradoodles for their future families.
Things to do….
When the Guardian dog goes into estrus (heat), the Guardian Family is required to contact us immediately. An intact female has a heat cycle that lasts between 21 days every 6-8 months. Country Doodle Dogs will alert you when to start checking for signs of her heat cycle. You’ll need to blot her with a tissue each morning, this will allow us to keep an accurate count on her breeding or AI day. This is very important responsibly; this will keep her from having to undergo testing (blood draws) to determine her cycle.
Things can change….
Deciding whether or not the guardian dog will enter our breeding program officially. If a dog does not pass testing or if there’s findings that her generations didn’t showed some heath issues that Country Doodle Dogs isn’t comfortable breeding into the future litters. If it's decided that she will not be added to our program, the guardian family will be notified and she will be completely owned by her loving family and the breeding contract would be voided.
Things you must be aware of…..
Male intact dogs are crazy!! They can smell a female dog in heat for miles…. You will have stray male coming around your home to get to her. If there’s a chance, he will breed with her. Things like washing your car outside with her puts her in danger… taking the trash-out, a short visit with a neighbor and especially unsupervised potty breaks. Watching over her for these 21 days of her cycle is a commitment. These males are aggressive and on a mission. Not only would this put her health at risks but her puppies as well. Not only would this be traumatic for all involved but devasting for the future families awaiting their pre-planned Labradoodle puppy that wouldn’t be coming. If you’re needing help during this time, I am willing to help. The good news is….this has never happened!! Knocking on wood!!
If this were to happen, Country Doodle Dogs has the right to take her back, keep her or rehome her to a safer environment.
