BRICKHAVEN LABRADOODLES is always looking for responsible families in our area to become guardians for our wonderful dogs.We believe that all of our dogs deserve to have a loving family of their own!! Our guardian program is designed to benefit everyone involved, the puppy, the guardian family, and us as the Australian Labradoodle breeder. Being a guardian is providing a loving home for one of our Brickhaven's breeding dogs or potential breeder puppies and becoming part of our extended Brickhaven family. Brickhaven Labradoodles retains ownership and breeding rights of the guardian dog, but the dog lives with you as your family member! Dogs in guardian homes must return to us for health testing, breeding and whelping of the puppies for a contracted amount of time. This gives our breeding dogs a stable loving home and family in between breeding's and they get to retire with their forever family when they have fulfilled their breeding contract requirements. The guardian fee is $500 and the guardian is responsible for all the Veterinary and general care costs of owning a dog. Brickhaven will pay all expenses that pertain to health testing, fertility, breeding and whelping puppies. We will also pay retirement fee of breeding dog S/N.
