be a guardian
We are currently looking for Guardian Homes
who live within 50-80 miles of Ocala, FL

We believe that all dogs deserve to live a life as someone’s beloved family member, and not all of our breeding dogs fit on our laps! For this reason we have implemented the "Guardian Home Program".

A Guardian Home is a forever home for one of the dogs in our program. This unique opportunity for selected local families allows us to expand our program without utilizing kennels.  


A Guardian Home is a family that takes a “pick of the litter” puppy that is personally chosen for you by us. This puppy/dog will be your forever dog while still participating in our breeding program. The Guardian Home agrees to raise, train, love and care for the puppy as their own while Sunrise retains ownership and breeding rights for a pre-agreed amount of time. This way all of our dogs get the love they deserve in your forever home.



Females:


Cost: $500.

 

-Live within 2 hours of Ocala, FL.

-Fully Fenced Yard

 

A potential female puppy will need to return to our facility for health testing when she turns 6 months old. After evaluation of those results we then decide if she will be entered into our program. Once in our program she will deliver up to 4 litters at Sunrise Australian Labradoodles approximately two times per year.  Mostly your responsibility will be transporting her to us.  Once pregnant she will remain with you throughout her pregnancy and come back to us about one week before her delivery and stay until the puppies are weaned. After her breeding career is over she will be spayed at our expense and live forever with you.

 


Males:


Cost: $500.

-Live within 1 hour of Ocala, FL.

-Fully Fenced Yard

 

A potential male puppy will need to return to our facility for health testing when he turns about 6 months old. After evaluation of those results we then decide if he will be entered into our program. You will be responsible for transporting him to our facility each time. Once we have determined we have used him to the fullest potential for our breeding program or he reaches the age of 7, he will be neutered at our expense and retired with you forever.



Benefits:


You will get our "pick puppy" of your chosen litter.

Health Benefits: Your puppy will be completely heath tested at no cost to you. We assess puppies about 6-12 months of age for quality based on our high breeding standards, and then we will pay to completely health test this puppy for things like hips, elbows, eyes, prcdPRA, vWD, thyroid, cardio, patella, and DNA profiling including over 10 genetics disease traits.

Cost Savings:

 

-You can get a top quality, health tested Australian Labradoodle for $500.

 

-$100 refund if puppy gains obedience or service/therapy dog certifications. 

-Refund of half membership to Baxter & Bella Online Puppy Training.

-Lifetime support

-First right to second Guardian Home breeder from Sunrise.

 

Best of all… you become part of the Sunrise Labradoodle Family, and contribute to the future development of this fabulous breed worldwide. You get to enjoy being a part of our breeding program and take part in your dog's puppies going to families to enjoy for generations to come. We have a lovely relationship with all our Guardian Homes and they become family to us. The Guardian Home program is invaluable to us and working with those raising our breeding dogs makes it really special.
