Become a HighStar Guardian Family

At HighStar we strive to provide each breeding dog in our program a wonderful life in a loving home. By placing our precious breeding dogs in Guardian Homes, the dogs receive more individualized attention, and our breeding program has the available dogs required to develop the breed. Contact us to learn more about this program.

What is a Guardian Home?

Guardian homes are very carefully selected pet owners who have met our requirements to provide a loving and forever home in a stable environment for the “pick of the litter” Multigen Australian Labradoodles we choose to use in our breeding program. Guardian homes are selected to raise, nurture, and train these exceptional girls and boys. This dog will not only be your forever pet, but will also play an integral role in the development of this magnificent breed.

GUARDIAN HOME.

Most Guardian Homes will raise a puppy, but occasionally we have adolescent and adult dogs available. The breeding career of girl dogs can last until her fourth birthday, while a boy dog’s breeding career can last until his seventh birthday. Girls start breeding around their second birthday, and boys start closer to their first. The breeding responsibility of boys vs. girls is quite different in the demands it will place on the Guardian Home. (Topic is covered in more detail below) Once the dog’s breeding career ends, HighStar Australian labradoodles will cover the cost to spay/neuter the dog and he/she now belongs 100% to the Guardian.

Costs of Being a Guardian Home

Guardian Homes will pay approximately one-third of the pet price for their puppy. Guardians will pay for normal pet ownership costs such as: routine vet care, heart worm and flea and tick treatment, premium dog food, dog training, pet supplies and grooming. Costs associated with breeding are covered by HighStar Australian Labradoodle. And We will cover the cost of spay/neuter surgery once the breeding career ends.

It is in the best interest of these puppies to be raised, nurtured, and trained by a loving and caring family. The dog will become a lifetime companion for you and your family and will also play an integral role in developing this magnificent breed.

8 Are you familiar with puppy training? If not, are you willing to enroll on Baxter and Bella to help you through your puppy development training? Are you willing to send puppy to basic obedience to get CGC? We are happy to help guide a buyer to the right trainer using the philosophies and methods these eager to please pups required like positive reinforcement. They are not trained by showing dominance over them. They are companion pets bred for temperaments that want to learn and please their people. I work hard to help the family have success with their HighStar pup.

We set the family up with the online training partner “Baxter and Bella” for the first weeks (I also can offer a big discount of 25% on their program with my discount code “HighStar”) and then when the dog is six-to 8 months old we can recommend a board and train facility so the dog learns to take commands from everyone and is well behaved in public and with distractions. One of our goals is to have a home for the dogs that is willing to invest in a fabulously well-behaved dog for a lifetime of enjoyment, and not frustration!

12. What other animals do you have?

13. Are you ok with HIghStart Australian labradoodle’s selection process outlined below

I will use this questionnaire to help match the puppy’s personality, energy level and the family situation to the right home for the puppy. I do take into consideration the buyers’ preferences on sex, color and size but I cannot always guarantee that combination for every litter.  For example: I wouldn’t put a shy puppy into a home with three young children and I wouldn’t put a high energy puppy into the home of a retired couple that isn’t active. If the puppy that is allocated to the buyer isn’t what they are looking for then I can move the person to the next litter and hopefully everyone will be happy. Is my goal, to make furever connections having families and puppies happy. I also look for people that understand I spend every day with these puppies and have a strong understanding of who they are, knowing as well that puppy behavior might change on their forever homes depending on how they will be treated and the family routines. Don’t base your selection on the puppy that run towards you, sometimes the pup runs toward the person that have a peculiar smell, either of other pets or food they ate before.
