Guardianship Program

What is a Guardian home?

Being a guardian family for a dog can be an excellent way to have a top quality dog for a family pet without all the expense.

We believe every dog deserves a loving forever family that they can call their own. We are not a kennel breeder as dogs raised in kennels do not get the socialization and stimulation that is needed to be a well-balanced happy dog. We believe that a family life is of utmost importance, our Guardian Homes have become an important part of our program and it benefits everyone involved, the dog, the forever family and the breeder.

Our Guardian Home Program allows for local families to have a breeder’s “Pick of the Litter” puppy. These pups live with you as your family dog while we retain breeding rights for the dog. The puppies are whelped at our home and the mama stays with us until pups are weaned. The females will have 1-4 litters in total depending on many factors. In the end we will pay the cost to have your dog spayed or neutered and the dog is fully yours forever.

This dog/puppy is your family pet, your forever companion. We here at Livy’s Doodles & Poodles simply retain breeding rights and she may have a litter or she may not depending on the needs of our breeding program that year.
