We believe it is important for all of our dogs to be part of a family and live in a home rather than kennels. Our dogs deserve to be treated like family and we recognize the importance of individual attention and care for every dog in our program.
Our Guardian Home Program allows us to carefully and intentionally plan our litters so that puppies and parents have the privacy they need while in our home. The program allows our females to have a limited and ethical amount of litters and not be overbred, while having the ability to live happily ever after in their Guardian Home at retirement!
Approved Guardian Homes would be provided our pick of the litter puppy or adult dog that we decide will be an addition to our breeding program. This puppy/dog would be provided free of charge to our Guardian Family. These future mommas are the foundation of our breeding program and require commitment and love. When the appropriate time arrives the puppy/dog will have health and genetic testing to confirm a place in our active breeding program at our expense. Once their service to our program has been completed (typically in a two year time frame), we provide a spay/neuter and then we transfer full ownership to you as the Forever Home.
Kay's Doods will retain ALL breeding rights for a limited number of litters.
If you are a Guardian for one of our females you will be compensated per puppy once her puppies go home.
You are welcome to schedule a visit while she is with us and play with the puppies! We know you will miss her and we promise to update regularly and transparently.
As a Guardian Home you will be required to pay for the everyday expenses of owning a dog including annual exams, vaccines, food, etc. We will pay for all breeding related costs including health testing and all care related to puppies.
Becoming a Guardian Home is not for everyone.
You MUST be willing and able to follow these requirements:
It takes commitment, extra attention and love to provide our momma dog a safe and healthy environment while she is carrying a litter. We appreciate our Guardian Families for enriching our breeding program with the special care of our program dams. We are so thankful for our Guardian Families commitment to our program and we view our Guardian Homes as an extension of our family.
If you are interested in becoming a Guardian Home for one our dogs, please contact us and fill out the Guardian Home Application. We can discuss the details and expectations in making this relationship a success!
