We strongly believe that every dog deserves to know the unconditional love and freedom of being part of a loving family.
Along with loving & trusted families, we participate in a Guardian Home breeding program. This means that we have a few dogs that live in our home and others that are placed with their forever families but remain part of our breeding for a period of time. Once they are finished, they are then spayed/neutered and stay in their forever home. This type of breeding program ensures that NONE of our dogs ever end up being put into a Kennel situation and live a happy, loving family life!
If you consider that studies have shown that when an expectant mother is petted, the litter is more docile, then doesn't it make sense to only ever get a puppy from a breeder that considers their dogs as loved family pets first!! The actual petting and love they receive in their homes activates the parasympathetic system, which facilitates relaxation, emotional attachment and socialization! Puppies from a loved mother have a greater tolerance to being handled than puppies from mothers who lack love and affection!
As a Guardian Home you get "pick of the litter" which is usually the puppies breeders keep for themselves and you get your loving, forever pet. You are responsible for the usual expenses of feeding, vetting and the rest that goes along with having a dog but we pay for breeding costs and testing involved. You must also live within 100 kms of the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Due to travel limitations we do not place our Guardian puppies/dogs on Vancouver Island or others.
We typically place our puppies at 8 weeks of age but all available Guardianship puppies will be listed on our Available Now tab. If you are seriously wanting to be considered as a Guardian home please fill out our Puppy Application and state that it is for Guardianship. We look forward to hearing from you and will be in touch to set up a phone interview.
Thank you for your interest in our Guardianship program. Please submit the application below and answer the questions in as much detail as possible to help us get to know you and/or your family better.
We ONLY take applications for puppies/dogs currently listed on our "Available NOW" page.
Please check back often! Applications are reviewed & responded to within a 4 week time period depending on what is happening behind the scenes.
Also, please note that we only place our Guardianship puppies/dogs within 100 kms of the lower mainland (unless otherwise stated).
