Labradoodle Lane's Guardian Home Program

Gaurdian Program

We are currently looking for Guardian Homes who live within 100 miles of Dade City, FL.

What is a Guardian Home?


At Labradoodle Lane, we breed exceptional Multi-generational Australian Labradoodles with Gold Paw health testing and ALAA registration.

All of our breeding dogs and puppies are raised in our home. In an effort for us to expand our breeding stock without kennels, so all of our breeding dogs can live in loving homes and get the attention they deserve, we have implemented the "Guardian Home Program". Being a Guardian Home is an excellent, low cost way to have a top quality Labradoodle Lane puppy as a family pet.

A Guardian Home is a family that takes one of our potential breeding quality puppies and provides a forever home. The Guardian Home raises, trains, loves and cares for the puppy as their own. Labradoodle Lane technically owns the dog. We will health test the puppy. If it passes health testing, it will become part of our breeding program. After the dog’s breeding career is over, it is spayed/neutered and ownership is transferred to the Guardian to keep as a forever pet.

During the dog's breeding career, Labradoodle Lane pays for anything related to breeding, including all reproductive and health testing for your puppy. The guardian home pays for the day to day expenses of having a dog including food, immunizations, parasite treatments, training, grooming, toys, etc.

If at any time Labradoodle Lane decides not to use your dog in our breeding program, Labradoodle Lane will pay to spay or neuter the dog and we will retire the dog from our breeding program. It will remain your family pet at no additional fee to you.

What are the Benefits?


Cost Savings: Being a Guardian Home for Labradoodle Lane is an excellent opportunity to have the breeder’s pick of the litter as a pet. In exchange for providing a home for a Labradoodle Lane breeding dog and partnering with us while the dog is part of our breeding program, you will receive a fabulous dog at a reduced cost. We also offer a $100 refund if puppy gains Canine Good Citizen certification. This allows our families to have the best Australian Labradoodles as their family pet.

Health Benefits: Your puppy will be heath tested at no cost to you. We assess puppies about 7-12 months of age for conformation and temperment. We pay to health test this puppy for things like hips, elbows, eyes, PRA-prcd, vWD, DM, EIC and DNA profiling.

Best of all, you become part of the Labradoodle Lane family and contribute to the future development of the breed. We have a lovely relationship with all our Guardian Homes and they become family to us. The Guardian Home program is invaluable to us.

  • Provide a safe environment that includes a fenced yard.
  • Provide transportation to and from Labradoodle Lane or our reproductive vet for breeding.

  • Guardian Home families need to be willing to work with Labradoodle Lane in a close relationship to provide good care to the dog.
  • Have dog professionally groomed every 6-8 weeks to breeder's specified look.

All potential breeding dogs will go through initial testing between to six and fouteen months of age. These tests are paid for by Labradoodle Lane, however transportation is the responsibility of the Guardian Home family. In addition, there are ongoing tests that will be required. A brucellosis test is given prior to every breeding, females will be required to have a series of progesterone testing done at time of heat cycle and the eye exam will be repeated at 12-18 month intervals, for the duration of the dogs breeding career. Testing is administered mainly at Lake Alfred Animal Hospital. Guardians will be responsible for transportation to breeding. Typically this is done at Labradoodle Lane in Dade City, FL.
