Our Guardian Family Program

We created our Guardian Family Program to grow our breeding program while still providing each of our breeding dogs a loving environment with a Guardian Family.   We are engaged in breeding healthy multigenerational Australian Labradoodles.  Our dogs are considered beloved members of our family and, like us, they all live inside our (your) home. We are more than aware that the initial investment of a registered Australian Labradoodle is out of reach for some really good dog-loving people.  It’s our hope that our Guardian Family program with help anyone who has a desire to live with an Australian Labradoodle as they are such amazingly smart, funny, and loyal dogs. A “pick of the litter” puppy is personally chosen for you by us. The puppy is given (at no cost) to the Guardian family. The Guardian family agrees to raise, train, and care for their Whimsical Australian Labradoodle pup throughout the dog’s life. Legally, the dog will belong to us.  However, our Guardian Family will have possession until the dog is retired from our program. Most of the time our Guardian Family dogs will be females, but once in a while we need a home for one of our guys.  It’s your choice on the gender of your pup, but sometimes the wait for a male could be a while, but then, sometimes not! 😊  You will pay all normal costs associated with owning an Australian Labradoodle  (i.e., health ins, leashes, collars, food, dishes, grooming, normal vet visits, etc.) and Whimsical will pay all costs associated for health testing and for the purpose of breeding. If you are willing to make an honest commitment to us and our breeding program, we will be very flexible and will do all we can to make this program work for you and your dog.

The Guardians

Assumes the role of “parent” while we retain legal ownership and all breeding rights to the dog. In exchange for providing a loving home, ownership will be transferred to the Guardian family at the time the dog is retired from his/her breeding career and is spayed/neutered at our expense. This provides the dog with the stability of the same family and its forever home throughout its’ entire life.

We Consider

We consider our dogs and Guardian families like extended family and enjoy the extra interaction we have with them in the Guardian program. We are aware that sometimes our needing a dog for breeding is not always good timing for our Guardian Family.  We offer a bonus for our Guardian families who can, and do, offer assistance and cooperation.  If you are the Guardian of a female in our program, we are offering a monetary gift of $500 per live litter of 3 or more puppies.     This gift will be given after the pups have gone to their forever homes.  If you are the Guardian of a male, we are offering a monetary gift of $200 per breeding that produces a live litter of 3 or more puppies and after the complete stud fee has been paid.
