We would be honored if you became part of our Guardian Program. This is how our Guardian home program works. What is a Guardian Home Our Guardian Home Program allows for local families to have our “pick of the litter puppy”, or top notch adolescent/adult breeding dog without the lofty cost. The Guardian Home puppy or dog is part of the Guardian Home’s Family forever, while the breeding rights are retained by Ruby's Goldendoodles for a set amount of time (each situation is slightly different so we prefer to work out specific details with each family on an individual basis.)
When the dog reaches breeding age, any health testing for breeding will be done at our the expense. If the breeder finds the dog is not up to the proper breeding standards, full ownership will be signed over to the guardian family and they will be required to have him or her spayed/neutered at their expense. If the guardian dog is used for breeding, once retired, he/she will be spayed/neutered and full ownership will be given to the guardian home at that time, and the dog will remain a forever pet of their Guardian Family! What are the benefits of being a Guardian Home? A Guardian Family gets the very best, pick of the litter that Ruby's Goldendoodles has to offer in the Goldendoodle or Bernedoodle breeds! This means that we choose our breeding stock based on the best qualities that are outlined in our breed standard. Another wonderful benefit to our Guardian Families is that their Guardian dog or puppy will be completely health tested by 12 months of age (some tests may be done as early as 16 weeks of age) at our expense prior to entering our breeding program at no cost to the Guardian Family. Our Guardian Paw-rent gets to enjoy the excitement of being a part of our breeding program and seeing their very own Guardian dog’s offspring, be placed with loving families and bringing others the same joy and happiness that they have received from their Guardian Dog! You will also be encouraged to visit with your Guardian dog’s puppies at The Ruby's Goldendoodles nursery to indulge in the beautiful miracle of life, newborn puppy snuggles and join together to help foster the socialization of the puppies. When you travel (when it works with our schedules) we can keep the puppy here at our home which is an excellent way for us to bond with your dog.
To qualify as a guardian home you must live within a 1 hour drive from Ruby's Goldendoodles and have the dog available when needed for breeding. How many litters will a Guardian Female produce? Each dog is individually assessed before determining their required litters. Our Guardian dogs will have no more than 5 litters for us (this depends whether you have an adult that has already had litters or a puppy entering our breeding program). The health and well being of our breeding dogs is a priority to us, and prior to any breeding, we will receive clearance by health testing and our Veterinarian. Occasionally we may decide to have fewer litters if we have accomplished our goals in development of our Guardian dog in a shorter period of time. Again, this is determined by Ruby's Goldendoodles.
