Guardian Program

Thank you for having an interest in our guardian home program.  Dogs are very social animals. They love their families and love being a part of a family.  The guardian pup is placed in a loving home, while the breeding rights are retained by Serendipity Doodles. Once the guardian dog has completed his/her breeding contract, they remain your forever pet.

how it works:

*when we have a prospective breeding pup, we look for a forever home for her
*the guardian home is responsible for routine vet care, grooming, monthly heartworm, flea/tick protection and to provide a loving home
*we expect our guardian homes to attend obedience classes and to socialize the pup
*when the female pup reaches breeding age she will come to our home to be bred, return to your house until 1 week prior to their due date, have her pups and return home after the pups are weaned
*she will be bred 4 times max

is there a cost involved?

We do not give our guardian puppies away. The cost of a guardian pup is $600. The guardian female will receive $200 for every litter that she produces. The guardian male will receive $50 for every litter he sires.  The female will have 1-4 litters. Male dogs are in service until the age of 6.
