Guardian Program

Our Guardian Home Program allows for families or individuals that live within 100ish miles of our home here in Templeton, California to have one of our female beagles or male pugs, typically 1+ years old. These dogs, at a minimal cost to you, are a part of the Guardian Home’s family forever, while the breeding rights are retained by us. Each dog’s breeding career is different so we prefer to work out specific details on an individual basis. Once the Guardian Dog has completed his/her breeding career, he/she will be spayed or neutered at our expense, and will remain a forever pet of their Guardian Home.

Guardian Home Responsibilities

The most important aspect in being a Guardian Home is to provide love, care and attention for the Guardian dog {which has been specifically placed with them. } This means general veterinary care for annual vaccines, grooming, heartworm prevention, training, feeding a high quality dog food, regular exercise and socialization plus flea/tick prevention.

Any “breeding related” medical costs for the Guardian Dog are our expense. Our Guardian Homes are only responsible for routine maintenance and medical care just as they would for any other pet they may own.


Is There a Cost Involved to Be a Guardian Home?

Yes. We have found that when there is a charge involved people seem to take better care and provide (better) for their new family member. This cost is minimal when compared to the actual price which we have already paid for the dog. The cost for each dog that we place will be considered on an individual basis. When the Guardian dog has completed its breeding career with us, we will transfer all registration paperwork into the Guardian’s name. Our Guardian families are able to enjoy the excitement and benefits of their very own Guardian dog having puppies without the extreme time commitment, labor involved, etc. If the Guardian lives close enough we invite them to visit their Guardian dog and share the joy of her puppies without the enormous responsibilities. It is a WIN-WIN for both parties!
