How does the Guardian Home Program Work?
Approved families or individuals receive our "Pick of the Litter" puppy for free. Sometimes we also have adult-trained dogs that we place in families as well.
Shining Star Doodles maintains breeding rights on the dog or puppy for up to 4 litters for females or for up to 7 years for males. These terms can vary depending on the age and circumstances of the dog.
Shining Star Doodles is responsible for any costs related to breeding. Guardian Families will pay for the normal costs of owning a dog (except for the brief periods when Shining Star Doodles is looking after the dog during the birth until the weaning of a litter of puppies).
Monetary compensation is given to our guardian families for each litter produced with their dog, this helps offset the day-to-day costs of caring for a dog.
Once the contract is fulfilled, dogs will be spayed or neutered and full ownership is signed over to the guardian family.
