Guardian Home Program
Wonderland Labradoodles believes all dogs should live a life as someone's beloved family member. Wonderland Labradoodles’ breeding stock live in our home as family pets. We have implemented the Guardian Home Program to allow us to expand our breeding program. This enables us to acquire more breeding stock without raising our dogs in a kennel environment.
A Guardian Home gets the very best that Wonderland Labradoodles has to offer. We choose our breeding stock based on the best qualities that are outlined in our breed standard with temperament coming first! Another benefit to our Guardian Homes is that their Guardian puppy/dog will be completely health tested by 24 months of age at the expense of Wonderland Labradoodles.
Guardian Homes are chosen very carefully. We require that you live within 30 minutes of our home (northern suburb of Detroit, MI) to be considered as a Guardian Home for one of our breeding dogs. It is necessary that you have physical fencing or a fenced dog run to provide a safe and secure environment for the Guardian puppy/dog, own your own home, and have a schedule that will not leave your puppy/dog left alone for more than four hours at a time. All dogs and pups placed in Guardian Homes must be indoor dogs and never left outside unattended. Guardian Homes must have reliable transportation and a willingness to bring the Guardian puppy/dog to us when needed throughout the year.
If you are receiving a Guardian Home puppy, we ask for monthly photos and updates during the first year so that we can watch him/her develop and update our website. We also require regular visits to our home every two months during the first year to assess the Guardian Puppy, build a relationship with him/her and to allow him/her to get comfortable with our home for future breedings/whelpings.
Puppies/dogs placed in a Guardian Home are not free. A deposit for the puppy/dog is required. The deposit is refunded once the Guardian Home contract has been fulfilled.
Our Guardian Home Families are responsible for the general routine veterinary care and wellness of the puppy/dog placed with them. This means annual exams and vaccines, monthly heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, feeding a high quality dog food, grooming, training, regular exercise, socialization and most importantly all the love and attention possible.
