We are retaining potential breeding dogs from our current and upcoming litters and seeking Guardian homes!
Please fill out our Puppy Application and please make note that you’re applying for our Guardian Program. You will need to contact us for access to the application as main applications are currently closed (due to high demand) and we are not accepting reservations.
Here at Mountain Home doodles, our breeding program is designed around placing our breeding dogs in guardian homes with their own forever families. Our program is designed this way to benefit everyone involved: the dog, the breeder, and the forever family. We are not a kennel breeder and believe every dog deserves a loving family they can call their own!
Our guardian homes afford local families an opportunity to have a top quality “pick of the litter puppy” or adolescent/adult breeding dog for a family pet without all the expense.
We do not charge for our guardian dogs, however, there are some requirements and responsibilities.
Mountain Home Doodles, LLC retains the ownership and breeding rights while the dog lives with a family. After passing pre-breeding testing, the females begin their breeding career and come back to us about a week before her due date to whelp each litter of puppies. She will return to her guardian once her puppies are weaned , usually about 6 weeks after whelping. Our breeding females usually have 4 litters and are in the guardian home program until they are around 4-5 years old. For the males, the dog will have to be available to us for breeding at certain times of the year. He will either visit us for a short time of the day or we may need to keep him here for just a few days, males are in the guardian home program until they are around 5-7 years old. Transfer of ownership will happen once the dog has finished her/his breeding career and been spayed or neutered at our expense.
In our experience this is a positive relationship for all! Our guardian families enjoy the excitement of being a part of our breeding program, and seeing the puppies of their very own guardian dog bring happiness to other families and our breeding dogs live in their forever homes for their lifetime where they are part of their forever families!!
We look forward to working with some wonderful families through the Guardian Home process!
