Our Guardian Home Program

Here at DN Poodles and Doodles we believe that every dog deserves to have a loving, forever home. All of our dogs are part of our family, live in our home, travel with us, and spend their days lounging around with all the love they could dream of. We do not have an external kennel facility and our pups have a beautiful room inside our home dedicated to them. Because we want this for all of our dogs we have decided to offer a Guardian Home Program. A Guardian Home is a permanent home for one of our breeding males or females. 


Becoming a Guardian Home gives you the opportunity to house and then own one of our pick-of-the-litter puppies or puppies that we have sought out and thought was a good fit for our program at no purchase cost to you. They will be your family pet while he or she remains in our program for 4 litters or up to the age of 4 for females & up to the age of 5 for males. DN Poodles and Doodles will retain ALL breeding rights and legal ownership until our contract is met. Once the pup in a guardian home is retired, he/she will be neutered/spayed at our expense.

Guardian homes for our girls will be compensated $100/puppy up to $600 per litter once her puppies go home. You are welcome to schedule visits while she is with us and play with the puppies! Guardian homes for our boys will be compensated $50 per stud job. You also have a built-in pet sitter for when you travel and can't take your pup with you. We love to have our guardian home dogs visit us regularly to keep them familiar with us and our home!


As a Guardian Home you will be required to pay for the everyday expenses of owning a dog including annual exams, vaccines, food, heart worm/flea tick meds, grooming, etc. We will pay for all breeding related costs including health testing.

Becoming a Guardian Home is not for everyone. You MUST be willing and able to follow these requirements:


#1 Live within an hour of Temple, Tx.

#2 Own your own home.

#3 Have physical fencing to provide a safe and secure environment for the Dog. This also protects the Dog from any unplanned, unwanted pregnancies and is crucial!

#4 Never leave the Dog off leash in an unsecured area.

NO dog parks allowed!

#5 Have reliable transportation and willingness to bring the dog to us when needed throughout the years for breeding purposes (i.e. testing, breeding, litters, etc.).

#6 Maintain open lines of communication with us, the breeder, concerning any matter related to the Dog.

#7 Be able to pay for and feed the guardian Dog a Premium Dog food chosen by us, the breeder, and give supplements provided by breeder.

#8 Understand that the breeder may need to make decisions about the Guardian dog and you will have to respect those decisions. Examples may include, but are not  limited to: keeping the guardian dog longer than expected, additional vet care, etc. All decisions WILL ALWAYS BE for the betterment of the Dog.

#9 Be willing to teach basic commands such as sit, stay, lay-down, no, and leave it.

#10 Be willing to socialize puppies. This is very important!

#11 The Guardian dog must be an indoor pet and never left unattended outside.

#12 All other dogs in the home MUST be fixed if they are the opposite sex.

#13 Provide regular exercise.

#14 Willing to let us, the breeder, visit your home.

#15 Contact Breeder immediately in the event of a serious illness or accident & pay for those vet expenses.

#16 Send a copy of all vet visits to Breeder.

#17 Must not allow them to mate with any unapproved dogs.

#18 Provide veterinary care when needed at the vet clinic of our choice.

#19 As a guardian for a male dog, you must be willing to drop him off for 3-5 days for breeding.

#20 Asa guardian for a female dog must be willing to drop off her off for 3-5 days for breeding then again for up to 8 weeks for delivery and care of the puppies.

#21 Be able to communicate with us regularly, provide updates, and pictures/videos for social media content.

#22 Sign a legally binding contract to the above terms and any more listed in the contract.

If you are not able to be away from your pet for an extended period of time then Our Guardian Home Program is NOT for you.
