Australian Labradoodles are extremely intelligent, low to non shedding, and have playful, family friendly personalities. Our love for Labradoodles and belief that their unique characteristics make them superb service dogs, family pets, and companions, motivated us to breed these wonderful dogs.
Guardian Homes are a great opportunity for the right family. Labradoodles of Long Island uses guardian homes so that I can further my breeding program without having too many dogs at my own home. Guardianships enable breeding dogs to live one on one with a family while they are participating in my program. They are loved and cared for by the same family they will be living with when they retire.
The pup will have health testing done to assure breeding quality. In the even of a pup not passing the testing, the guardianship will be terminated, dog spayed or neutered, and guardian will have ownership of the dog. There will be a specific contract for each guardianship arrangement.
Guardians of females are required to alert me to when their girl is coming into heat, and make her available to me for the breeding process. Approximately one week prior to whelping, the girl will come to my home for delivery and care of her pups. Once the pups are weaned (approximately 6 weeks) the female can go back to her guardian home. Guardian families are allowed to visit while the pups are young.
It is a wonderful experience to see your dog be a mom and love her puppies. We can discuss any questions that you may have about providing a guardian home.
