About

guardian home

We love our guardians

Giving every dog the best life is our top priority, no matter if they are one of our puppies or one of the fantastic momma and dad dogs that are part of our breeding program. This is why we place many of our breeding dogs in guardian homes so that they can receive proper attention, love and bond with their humans. Limiting the number of dogs on our premises is important so that every dog gets the love and attention they need to live happy lives.

We invest in the best and most healthy dogs for our breeding program. You will receive one of the best dogs we can find at an incredible discount in exchange for your assistance throughout the breeding lifetime of the dog. Below is additional information about our program. If after reading, you think this is a good fit for your family, please fill out the application.

the benefits of being a guardian

Becoming a guardian home for our breeding program comes with perks and responsibilities. Our goal is to make this a mutually beneficial relationship between both of us

You will pay a significantly discounted rate for one of our dogs/puppies. You will receive on of the best dog we have. The puppies and dogs we add to our breeding program are selected for quality genetics, personalities and coat/looks. Additionally, we provide support to our guardian families throughout their lives and we strive for guardian dogs to be the best they can. Guardian families live within 45 minutes of our premises, because of this we offer to board our guardian dogs when their families go out of town (we can’t guarantee availability all the time). This is actually a good thing for us, as we want our dogs to feel comfortable at our home and familiar with our dogs.
