Our Guardian Home Program is a partnership between us, Big Bear Doodles and Poos, and a family that agrees to be a fur-ever home to one of our potential parent dogs. The guardian family will raise our "Pick of the Litter" in their home as a beloved family member. When the puppy is mature enough, Big Bear will health and temperament test to determine if the "Pick of the Litter" will become a member of our breeding program. If the puppy is selected for the breeding program, the guardian family will bring the "now adult dog" to us for mating, birthing, and weaning puppies (Males only for the mating portion).
The Guardian Home Program allows us to continue breeding our carefully selected bloodlines, while also giving the puppy the opportunity to grow up in their fur-ever home. The guardian family gets to raise their beloved family member from the puppy age, who is "Pick of the Litter", and is contributing to improve the breed, at a fraction of the cost of a puppy. The majority of our Guardian Puppies will be females, but we will, on occasion, have males available. We do require occasional home visits and we offer up to 14 days a year of puppy boarding, so that your puppy will feel safe and secure with us when it comes time for breeding.
For the Guardian Home Program to be successful, please realize that you will need to develop a long-term relationship with us. It requires a great deal of effort, communication, and trust on both sides. We are putting our babies (that we would keep ourselves if we could), in your care, in the hopes they will be getting a great life with their fur-ever family. This program is definitely not right for everyone, so please take a lot of time and thought, to ensure that this is right for you and your family.
This is a condensed overview of our Guardian Program. If you meet ALL the listed Guardian Home Requirements (Not Inclusive), and would like to be considered as a guardian family, please email with a description as to why you feel you would be a great partner for our program. I will reach out and we can discuss the opportunity further.
The deposit for a Guardian Home Puppy is $600. Your deposit will be returned to you when your pup has completed the breeding program, and has been spayed/neutered.
