Guardian Dogs & Puppies


We are committed to having every breeding dog living as a family pet in a home. Guardian Homes allow us to expand our breeding program and still have just a few dogs living as pets in our own home.

  • Any “breeding related” medical costs for the Guardian Dog are the expense of GOLDEN XPRESS MERLE LABRADOODLES. Our Guardian Homes are only responsible for routine maintenance and medical care just as they would if they had their own dog.
  • Females will have a minimum of 2 litters for GOLDEN XPRESS MERLE LABRADOODLES. The family must notify us at the first sign of her heat.
  • When the dog is old enough, she comes back to GOLDEN XPRESS MERLE LABRADOODLES for breeding and or whelping for about 7 weeks until the puppies are weaned. Once her breeding career is over, she will be spayed and enjoy the wonderful life she has always enjoyed and the family will receive their deposit back.
  • Males are usually retained for about 5 years, but do not need to leave their families for long periods. Once their breeding career is over, he will be neutered and will enjoy the wonderful life he has always enjoyed and the family will receive their deposit back.
  • If it is determined that the dog I placed with you is not needed for my GOLDEN XPRESS MERLE LABRADOODLES breeding program when he or she comes of age, the dog must be spayed or neutered, the guardian contract will be dissolved and the original pet agreement will take effect.
