BRICKHAVEN LABRADOODLES is always looking for responsible families in our area to become Guardians for our loving dogs. 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 of Guardian dog but they live with you as your family member! Dogs in Guardian homes must return to us at our home for health testing, breeding and whelping of the puppies for a contracted number of Litters (3 to 4). 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 requirements. The Guardian pays a small adoption fee and is responsible for all the Veterinary and general care costs of owning a dog, this is to include socialization and obedience classes. CGC classes are optional. Brickhaven's will pay all expenses that pertain to health testing, CGC Certification, breeding and whelping puppies. We will also pay retirement fee of breeding dog..
