Would you like to join the AwesomeDoodle crew, but maybe you’re not yet ready to have puppies in your own home? You can be a guardian family. A “guardian” family isn’t really a good word for it, guardian family owns an AwesomeDoodle mommy or daddy. You keep your dog and care for it, just like any other dog. However your dog would go to the home of an AwesomeDoodle crew partner, about once a month to visit and get comfortable in their home too.
This allows your dog to get ALL the attention from their furever home family, plus get to go to another home to have puppies, (or be a stud). Not only does a guardian family get a huge discount on a dog, they also get a PREMIUM dog that would be otherwise, near impossible to get. They also get a generous portion of the fees from the puppies they produce. It’s a win win agreement (and you’ll get free dog sitting too).
How it works:
AwesomeDoodle finds a poodle or an Australian Shepherd we want to add to our line up of moms or dads. We adopt the puppy and raise it for a couple months IN OUR HOME. We train it, help shape it’s behaviors, and teach it good manners. After that, the dog will get several visits from you, the guardian. Once the dog is comfortable with you, and everything is just right, then you will pay for the dog, sign our guardian agreement, and take the dog home.
The guardian family is responsible for all regular vet visits, food, and all expenses for the dog. AwesomeDoodle is responsible for any pregnancy or health testing related expenses.
AwesomeDoodle will get the dog about once a month, to ensure the dog stays comfortable at the partner’s home. When it comes time to breed, the guardian home is responsible to meet the crew member with their dog for mating. About 2 weeks before puppies come, mom will go to the crew member’s home and stay for 10 weeks. This is the hardest part about being a guardian family; being without your girl for 8-10 weeks. But you’re welcome to come visit and see the puppies. When it’s time for the dog to stop making AwesomeDoodles, we will pay for the dog to be spayed or neutered, and then the dog is yours for life.
