What is a Guardian Home?

At Goin Doodles we believe that every dog deserves to have a loving, forever home. All of our dogs are part of our family and live in our home as pets rather than kennels so that we know they are getting as much attention as possible. Because of this 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?

Becoming a Guardian Home gives you the opportunity to have one of our top notch, "Pick of the Litter" puppies as a family pet. Rather than buying this puppy you are required to put down a $500 deposit that will be returned after his/her first litter of 5 or more puppies. For females the expected breeding career is 2-3 liters or up to the age of 5. Males breed up to the age of 6 for males). Goin Doodles retains all breeding rights. We reserve the right to cancel our guardianship program at anytime if we deem necessary. He/she will be neutered/spayed at our expense and returned back to you.

If you are a Guardian for one of our females you will be compensated $500 per litter when when the litter is rehomed. You are welcome to schedule a visit while she is with us and play with the puppies!

As a Guardian Home you will be required to pay for the everyday expenses of owning a puppy including annual exams, vaccines, food, 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:

  • Have previous experience with dogs.

  • Live locally (Ca. Central Valley/Placerville/Hwy 50)

  • Be willing to teach basic commands such as sit, stay, lay-down, and leave it.

  • Feed a premium, quality food especially while pregnant.

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

  • Provide regular exercise.

  • Be willing to let us, the breeder, visit your home.

  • Contact Breeder immediately in the event of a serious illness or accident.

  • Send a copy of all vet visits to Breeder.

  • Must not allow he/she to mate with any unapproved dogs.

  • Provide veterinary care when needed.

  • If you are a guardian for a female dog, you must be willing to drop her off for 1-2 weeks while she is bred. Then drop her back off 1 week prior to her whelping date. She will stay with us until the puppies are weaned.

  • If you are a guardian for a male dog, you must be willing to drop him off for 3-5 days for breedings unless arrangements are made ahead of time for us to pick him up.

  • Be able to communicate with us, the breeder, about scheduling testing, mating, whelping, and anything else breeding related.


Now taking applications for our retired stud McCovey
He will be fixed and is 4 years old. He is a people person doggie. He loves tug-a-war and treats. He is low shedding but does shed a little. He loves the outdoors but not when it is thundering. He has been a wonderful stud for us but we are moving in a different direction for our breeding program. (He does mark as he was our alpha male dog for the last few years. it is possible that getting him neutered could help this but not guaranteed.)

Feel free to reach out for more info.
