My dog Opal had 3 litters. Was at the breeders for 5 weeks each one and commuted to work for an extra week for each litter. Meadow her litter mate was a bit lost for the first week (no personality)... but then REALLY enjoyed the extra Mom and Pop time. Meadow had one litter and Opal didn't miss her in the least. I always looked at it as bonus extra one on one time with the non whelping dog. DON'T worry! Just enjoy the special time with the dog at home!!
Question - if I take in a guardian dog (female), and it leaves for 5 weeks or so with each birth, would is adversely affect my current dog - Toby? Would he be "depressed" missing her, or would it be okay for him?
Hello Doodles lovers!
I am a breeder of Australian Labradoodles in Livonia Michigan & in the coming 3 months, we are seeking 3 guardian families!!!
A guardian Home is a fantastic way to get a Pick of the Litter pup at a greatly reduced cost and be a part of a breeding program!!!
Here is what we will have need:
ONE home in the Ann Arbor/Detroit area for our new male breeding prospect puppy; He will be cream & a medium size doodle, we are thinking a fleece coat (he was born January 1). Will be ready March 3rd for his new home!.
TWO homes for 2 female breeding prospects--Females would be fine to place within a 2.5 hour distance of our home.
1 female, red, fleece, standard Jan 21
1 female, chocolate/parti medium, fleece-standard March 31.
Please visit our website for more information! I’m happy to answer any questions!!

We will be seeking a Guardian Family in the Portland Metro area for our new female breeding prospect puppy. Please visit our website for more information!
I'd say 3-4.
I emailed you my contract at the email on your website. feel free to alter it. or take from it what you like! :O))
My breeder is very fussy about a lot of things--very strict instructions about food, yards, etc, but as she has started to trust me, (I volunteered to raise Lyric's first litter and did it successfully--she now hires me to raise other guardian dog litters) the "rules" have relaxed a bit. We are more of a partnership now. I paid half of Lyric's price and would have gotten half of that back for each litter up to the second litter--Lyric is required to have three litters. If anything had gone wrong with her health tests, she would have been spayed and I would owe nothing more. So, for example, if Lyric was worth $2000, I paid $1000 (whether she passed health tests or not) and would get $500 for the first and second litter. OR a free puppy from one litter. I think my breeder was shocked when I wanted to take Rio--he is my third doodle--but too darn cute to give up!
Lots of people have different arrangements and the breeder could be more generous-- after all, they do make money when they sell the puppies! But the health tests are costly and they make all the sales arrangements, advertising, etc., so it is fine with me.
I think that you should be reasonable--if you want the dog to be fed a top quality dog food, which can be 5 times the cost of grocery store brands, you should consider that when you reimburse the family. That is just one example of how expensive the whole deal can be to the guardian family. Reimburse gas if they need to drive the dog someplace for you--etc.
