A FOREVER HOME FOR A BREEDING DOG. The Guardian Home program allows a forever family to raise and love a 'pick-of-the-litter' puppy for a minimal cost. A Rum River breeding puppy will have all the wonderful qualities we look for in our labradoodles - coat, confirmation and most of all temperament. The puppy is placed with the guardian family at approximately 8 weeks. Testing for our breeding program starts at 16 weeks and is completed by around 1 year.
After testing is completed, if we choose to place the dog into our breeding program she/he will still continue to live in the guardian home. Mom dogs birth and rear their puppies while living with our family, in our home (6-8 weeks). Males have a 'date' with our vet when required and do not spend time in our home. As mom dogs vary, so do agreements but a 3 litter agreement is standard. Males dogs are placed on a timed agreement.
After leaving the breeding program, Rum River spays/neuters the dog and she/he lives out their life in just the same place they have always lived...with their caring forever family. It is a wonderful 'win-win' situation.
If we choose not to place her/him in our program, Rum River spays/neuters the dog and they remain with the guardian home as their forever family.
We don't entrust our beautiful puppies to just anyone! Besides giving our furry babies a forever home we ask that you -
