CALM SMART DOGS BRED TO BE THERAPY DOGS

Why Use Guardian Homes?
We believe all dogs deserve to be in a loving home and not have to live in a kennel. Because of this, our Australian Labradoodles will be either members of our family or live with another family that will provide them the love and attention they need. Because we are committed to producing the highest quality Australian Labradoodle puppies we can, we raise the offspring in our home, where they are loved and handled by adults and children before they go to their forever homes. In order to expand our breeding program, we need the help of qualified Guardian Homes willing to raise breeding dogs for us in their homes with all of the love and care that we would give them if we could keep them all ourselves!
