Guardian Home Program
A guardian home would get my pick male or female puppy for the deposit price ($500), but the dog’s registration and breeding rights would remain in my name, until it’s retired from my program. I would probably use a female 3-4 times before retirement.
My ideal Guardian is someone who would want to compete with the dog in companion/performance sports, and possibly in UKC conformation as well. If they can’t show the dog themselves, then I would need to be able to pick the dog up for shows until it earns a UKC Championship (at minimum).
All health testing and reproductive costs would be my responsibility, and when the dog is retired from my program I will pay for it to be spayed/neutered, and then the dog would be the guardian home’s pet/companion full time (I’d sign over registration too).
The dog would have to come to me to be bred, and then come back to me for whelping/raising the litter if it’s a female.
The guardian home would be responsible for all basic care and costs related to that (food, vet/health unrelated to breeding, etc) and transportation costs when I need the dog for showing, breeding, etc. if the guardian lives over 1.5 hours away from Albany, OR.
