We do not believe that puppies or dogs are best served by being kennel raised. By placing them in a home environment that will be their forever home from the time they are puppies, or by placing as a young adult, we are doing our best to ensure their happiness and best start in life. We never have to kennel raise a dog when utilizing guardian homes.

The majority of guardian homes are families who cannot afford to purchase a Goldendoodle. There are others who simply like the idea of how our program works and want to be a part of it with us. For those who could not afford to purchase a Goldendoodle outright, the guardian home option is a fantastic way to have a beautiful Goldendoodle.  We benefit as a breeder because we do not need to have or utilize kennels. We do not have to care for more dogs than we are comfortable with or can manage easily in our own home. We know each dog has a forever home from the time they are young.


As a Guardian Home you will be required to pay for the everyday expenses of owning a puppy including annual exams, vaccines, food, etc. We will pay for all breeding related costs including health testing.  


Becoming a Guardian Home is not for everyone. Below is a list of some of the requirements.  You must be willing and able to follow these requirements:

  • Have previous experience with dogs.

  • Females live within 45 minutes of zip code 30518, Males must live within 15 minutes of 30518

  • You must own your home.

  • Have a fenced in yard.

  • Be willing to teach basic commands such as sit, stay, lay-down, and leave it.

  • If you are a guardian for a female dog, you must be willing to drop her off for up to a week while she is bred. Then drop her back off 1 week prior to her whelping date. She will stay with us until the puppies are weaned.
