Guardian Homes


What a Guardian Home is and How to Become One

What is a Guardian Home?

Guardian homes are families or individuals who adopt a male or female dog from a breeder for a very small fee. The breeder covers the rest of the fee in exchange for ownership of the breeding rights of the dog. The guardian home keeps the dog as their pet and once or twice a year, according to contract, the breeder takes the dog and breeds them. If it's a female, then the guardian home will take care of them during their pregnancy. Then one or two weeks before they are due the breeder will take them back. The momma will stay with the puppies until they are weaned, then she gets to go back home to her family! Once she's had 3-4 litters she get's to retire and spend the rest of her life with her family!


1. The breeder doesn't have too many dogs on property and can give proper attention to those she has.


2. The guardian home gets a designer dog for a lot less than normal. And they get to be a part of ethical breeding without all of the management!


3. The dog gets to live with their own happy family!

It's a win win win!
