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
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.
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.

Dates for planned litters are approximate. They are estimates based on their prior history.
They could cycle sooner or later than predicted and Mother Nature is in charge.
Labradoodle Lane reserves the right to use a different stud than planned. There are many reasons and circumstances which may require this.
When a substitution is made, Labradoodle Lane will make every effort to use a stud of similar size and temperament
and who will produce similar colors whenever possible.
Labradoodle Lane has the right to refuse to sell a puppy to anyone for any reason. If we choose not to sell you a puppy, your deposit will be refunded.
