Guardian Home Info

Because we have guardian homes, we rarely have retired dogs available.


Our guardian home program is mutually beneficial please contact us for more information.


In an effort to grow our Labradoodle family without turning our home into a kennel atmosphere, and to ensure all of our breeding dogs live a pampered life in their forever home, we have implemented a Guardian Home Program!

The guardian home dog is part of the guardian home’s family, while the breeding rights are retained by Labradoodle Story Tails for a set amount of time (at least 3 litters). Once the guardian dog has completed her breeding career, she will be spayed at breeders expense, and will remain a forever pet of the Guardian Family and they may be compensated  for completing the program if 4 litters are completed, for 3 litters there is no compensation, but you still get a fabulous free pet. 

Guardian families will be under a legal contract with LST until their guardian dogs breeding career is complete. Guardian homes will undergo an interview and screening before chosen. 

Guardian home families are responsible for the general routine veterinary care and wellness of the guardian dog placed with them. This means feeding a high quality dog food (approved by breeder), basic grooming (non-professional is fine), flea/tick prevention when needed, socialization, regular exercise and most importantly, all the love and attention possible! Any “breeding related” medical costs for the guardian dog are the expense of LST.
