Our Guardian Home Program
We are currently looking for Guardian Homes
who live within 50 miles of Ocala, FL
All our breeding dogs and puppies are raised in our home.
In an effort for us to expand our breeding stock without kennels, so all of our breeding dogs can live in loving homes and get the attention they deserve, we have implemented the "Guardian Home Program". We are currently looking for a few Guardian Homes who live within 2 hours driving distance of Ocala, Florida.
Being a Guardian Home is an excellent, low cost way to have a top breeding quality Sunrise Australian Labradoodle as a family pet.
I do not keep my breeing dogs in kennels, instead I utilize Guardian Homes. A Guardian Home is a family that takes one of our potential breeding quality puppies and provides a forever home. The Guardian Home raises, trains, loves and cares for the puppy as their own. Sunrise technically own the dog will health test puppy and if it turns out to be a quality dog will enter it into our breeding program. When the dog enters our breeding program see below for additional information on males vs. females. After the dog’s breeding career is over it is spayed/neutered and ownership is transferred to the Guardian family to include a health guarantee and keep as a forever pet for you.
During the dogs breeding career Sunrise AL’s pays for anything related to breeding including all reproductive and health testing for your puppy between ages 6-12 months. The guardian home pays for the day to day expenses of having a pet dog including food, immunizations, parasite treatments, training, grooming, toys, etc..
If at any time Sunrise Australian Labradoodles decides not to use your dog in their breeding program, Sunrise will pay to spay or neuter of the dog and we will retire the dog from our breeding program and it will forever remain your family pet, at no additional fee to you.
Cost: The cost of a female puppy or adult/young dog in our Guardian Home Program is $500.
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 Sunrise Australian Labradoodles will pay to spay her per our agreement and she will retire with you at no additional fee.
Cost: The cost of a male puppy or adult/young dog in our Guardian Home Program is $500.
A potential male puppy will need to return to our facility for for health testing when he turns 6 months old. After evaluation of those results we then decide if he will be entered into our program. Once he passes his health testing and we enter him into our program he can be used up to 8 times per year that will last 3 days each time. 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, we will have him neutered per our agreement and he will retire with you at no additional fee.
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.
