What is a Guardian Family?

Sierra Vista Labradoodles is a small breeding program dedicated to breeding great family dogs. Our dogs live and sleep in our house with our family. They are involved in our daily life and our community. We do not own kennels. We believe that all dogs deserve to be a part of their own family and to live within a loving home where they will receive the care and attention they need. As we expand our breeding program we will be in search of families or individuals who are willing to serve as guardian homes for one of our breeding dogs.

What is a Guardian Family?

A guardian family agrees to raise, train and care for a Sierra Vista breeding Labradoodle throughout his/her breeding career. In exchange for providing a home for one of our breeding dogs, ownership will be transferred to the Guardian family when the dog is retired from his/her breeding career. Throughout the dog’s stay, we cover all reproductive veterinary costs. The Guardian family is responsible for all other veterinary care (heartworm prevention, flea treatment, annual exams etc.).

What are the requirements for becoming a Guardian Family?

Guardian families must:

  • live within a 75 mile radius of Sierra Vista Labradoodles (Davis CA),
  • have a home with a fenced-in yard,
  • have prior experience owning/raising/training a puppy/dog,
  • understand the issues involved with caring for an intact male or female and be willing to assume those responsibilities,
  • be willing to have the dog return to us as needed throughout the year to be brought in for veterinary appointments, be bred, give birth and raise puppies. Female breeders will stay with us for approximately 2 months following the birth of their litter.
  • be willing to be actively involved in communicating with us regarding the general health and well being of the dog.

If you are interested in Guardian Family program, please contact us at We will ask you to fill out an application. Qualified applicants will be contacted to arrange for an interview. We want Guardian Families to have a chance to fully understand what raising a breeding dog entails. In turn, we do a thorough screening of each Guardian Home to ensure the best placement possible for each of our dogs.
