We strongly stand by the Code of Ethics set forth by the Australian Labradoodle Association of America (ALAA).
The ALAA has awarded us with the Gold Paw in Health Testing
WE GUARANTEE TO ALWAYS MAINTAIN OUR GOLD PAW BUT FROM TIME TO TIME OUR STATUS MAY TEMPORARILY CHANGE DUE TO AN EYE EXAM BEING OVER DUE. IT IS REQUIRED THAT ALL DOGS GET RE-CERTIFIED EVERY 18 MONTHS AND BECAUSE MOST OF OUR DOGS LIVE IN GUARDIAN HOMES THERE CAN BE MOMENTARY SCHEDULING CONFLICTS.

We are proud to say that we are NOT a kennel and our dogs do not live their lives inside a kennel. We have extended Guardian Home families that help raise most of the breeding dogs within our program, because it really does take a village! Our dogs are a huge part of our family. We breed only excellent representations of the breed. Our dogs are always around us and we would not want it any other way. Our pups are whelped and raised in and around our home in Valley Springs, CA.
Our Guardian Home (GH) program is a Win-Win for those that live in central or northern California.
Basically how our Guardian Home (GH) program works is that a top breeding quality puppy (Sometimes we have an adult available) is placed with the GH free of charge and the dog lives with the GH as their lovingly spoiled pet and returning to us for matings/whelping and raising of her litters. When she or he has completed their breeding career we will have them spayed/neutered and the dog is the GH’s forever pet.
All of our dogs live inside our home with us as true members of our family. When it’s time for one of our mothers-to-be to have her litter it is a blessed time in our home and we take so much joy out of the miracle of life that our mommies bring to the world. We are always right by our mother’s side throughout the delivery of each pup, assisting when she needs us.
During the First week: As each pup is born we express their airways and weight is taken (just like a human baby) then we make sure that the little one has proper suction while feeding and bonding with mother. Mother and litter stay within hearing distance so we can check on them throughout the night. During the next couple of days each puppy is held individually to begin neurological stimulation. We begin to implement our socialization methods as soon the puppies are born; this insures excellent temperaments and promotes a calm disposition.
The pups begin to open their eyes and hear the sounds of each other and the world. Toward the end of the week the pups have their first nail trimming at this time and they begin to take their first clumsy steps, begin to chew on toys and play wrestle with their litter mates. In week 3 the puppies begin to open their eyes and their ears.
They are getting 2-3 meals of soft puppy food and are still getting 1-2 meals from their mother’s milk. Toward the beginning of this week the pups are frequently play in the kitchen area where they can interact with us throughout the day and get familiar with the normal sounds of a household.
Toward the end of this period they are taken outside for the first time and introduced to grass. They quickly learn that grass is a great place to potty and play! There different personalities start to show through during this time and I begin to make notes regarding each puppy.
The pups are fully weaned from their mother and have a schedule established of going outside to potty first thing in the morning, then depending on the weather will have play time in the kitchen or in the puppy play area outside, breakfast, followed by another potty break, nap time, potty break, playtime, lunch, potty break, one-on-one time, nap time, potty break, playtime, dinner, potty break, one-on-one time, last potty break of the night, then sleep time in the crate.
They received their first vaccination and are given a routine dewormer. One on one handlings are happily continued and the human-canine bond is reinforced.
Toward the end of this stage their individual personalities are now beginning to shine through. They are now craving a lot more individual attention and proper socialization is critical. Your puppy will be ready to go home at 8 weeks.
Our puppies come from therapy lines that go 8+ generations back, so they are naturally calmer. We are proud to say that many of our pups go on to become therapy dogs and even service dogs.
Begin hardcore socialization after the 2nd vaccine (around 10wks of age through 16 weeks of age)
1. Have lots of visitors over your house during this time
2. Try to have your pup see the mail being delivered everyday
3. Take your pup with you on outings (still best to hold your pup until after the 3rd vaccine)
4. Sit at the park on a park bench and let lots of people walk by (with your pup in your arms), welcome small talk with strangers and any pettings they would like to give your pup.
These things will help build your pups trust in "strangers"
