Guardian Family Program


As we expand our program, we may occasionally offer approved families a special opportunity to qualify as a guardian home.  Labradoodles are bred to be close family companions and they naturally love human company and closeness and we believe that they will best thrive in a loving family environment!  Therefore, we like to place our upcoming guardian doodle pups in "forever homes" with suitable well matched families.  

how the Guardian Program works:

  1. A puppy is placed in an approved home when the puppy is about 10 weeks old.

  2. Once the dog has successfully completed all their health testing and reaches full maturity (approximately a year and a half), we would breed the dog.

  3. You will need to keep a close eye on her “in heat” schedule so we can have her for a few days to test and breed her and then she would return to our home in time to deliver her puppies, returning back to you once her puppies are weaned.

  4. When the breeding career is over (3-4 litters), we spay them and they are returned to your family with full ownership rights to live out their lives as your loving family pet.

  5. We may occasionally have “stud” family guardian home opportunities as well.

your responsibilities as a qualified guardian home:

  1. Routine Vet care including monthly Heartworm medication.

  2. Feeding with a top quality food approved by us. (Life’s Abundance)

  3. Live within a reasonable distance to Bayou Doodles' location.

  4. Open communication with the breeder.

  5. Contained yard.

  6. No unneutered male dogs in the home.

If you become a guardian family, the dog is essentially your pet; however, Bayou Doodles maintains full ownership and full breeding rights to the dog until their breeding career is completed.
