Guardian Home Information

Being a guardian family for a dog can be an excellent way to have a top quality dog for a family pet without all the expense. 

We believe every dog deserves a loving forever family that they can call their own.  We are not a kennel breeder as dogs raised in kennels do not get the socialization and stimulation that is needed to be a well-balanced happy dog. Because we believe that a family life is of utmost importance, our Guardian Homes have become an important part of our program and it benefits everyone involved, the dog, the breeder and the forever family. 

Our Guardian Home Program allows for local families to have a breeder's “Pick of the Litter” puppy. These pups live with you as your family dog while we retain breeding rights for the dog. The puppies are whelped at our home and the mama stays with us until pups are weaned. Most dogs retire by six years of age and will not have their first litter until around 2 years of age.  What this means for you and your guardian home labradoodle has approximately 4 litters in 6 years and then we will pay the cost to have your dog spayed or neutered.  

Your pick of the litter labradoodle is your family pet, your forever companion. We here at High Country simply retain breeding rights and she may have a litter or she may not depending on the needs of our breeding program that year.
