We are accepting applications for 2023 Guardian Homes!
What is a Guardian Home?
A Guardian Home is a family that takes a “pick of the litter” puppy for free that is personally chosen for you by us. This puppy/dog will be your forever dog while still participating in our breeding program. The Guardian Home agrees to raise, train, love and care for the puppy as their own while Brevard Doodles retains ownership and breeding rights for a pre-agreed amount of time. This way all of our dogs get the love they deserve in a forever home.
Benefits of Being a Guardian Home:
- Free pick of the litter puppy! Some breeders charge up to $1000 for guardian homes while Brevard Doodles charges absolutely nothing.
- Guardian Dog is loved and well cared for.
- Guardian Family received compensation for each puppy born from their guardian dog.
- Guardian dog is health tested.
- Guardian dog is spayed after completing program at the breeders expense.

Our female pups usually begin parenthood when they are approximately 18 months old. Their heat lasts around 3 weeks and they usually are in heat every 6-8 months. If the girl is bred, and becomes pregnant, the gestation period is 63 days. She will remain with her family until one week before her whelp date. At that time she will remain with Lucie or Brittany until her pups are 7 weeks old. This means that the Guardian Family may be without their girl for a few weeks each time she is having her puppies. After she has had up to 3 litters but definitely before she is 6 years old, she will be spayed and continue to live with her Family as their loving pet.
