Guardian Program

At North Austin Labradoodles, we believe every dog deserves to have forever home as member of a loving family! Our guardian program ensures all our breeding dogs a happy life in a permanent home with people who love them.  Being a guardian family for one or more of our breeder dogs can be an affordable way to have a top-quality dog as a family pet. Guardian families allow us to be an exceptional breeder of Australian Labradoodles without using kennels.  We are thankful and appreciative for the role these families play!

​How it Works

We place "pick of the litter" puppies in their forever homes with select, local families (preferably within 60 miles of Round Rock, TX) and we retain breeding rights for the first few years.  Breeding dogs are carefully chosen for their temperament, coat and confirmation.


We pay for all breeding-related expenses including health testing. The guardian family is responsible for all routine costs of owning a dog (such as vaccinations, heart-worm, preventative care and grooming). When the guardian dog's breeding career is over, three or four litters for females or age six, whichever comes first, and around seven years of age for males, the dog will be de-sexed (spayed/neutered) at the North Austin Labradoodle's expense, the Guardian Contract is terminated, and the registration and ownership are signed over to the guardian family.
