Guardian Home Program
We at Fun Wheatens believe in providing the best environment possible to all of our dogs. We have a system which we feel will give our breeding females the very best life possible while still allowing us to share happy, healthy puppies with all of you!
Instead of being raised in a kennel, we place our future moms (pups) where they spend their lives with individual families. They are lavished with love, attention and consistent socialization! We, as the breeder, place a puppy in the home of an approved person, (aka Guardian Family). This Guardian will typically live within 2-3 hours driving distance.
When the puppy matures (around age 2), she will come back to us for 5-6 days to be bred with our male. Once she is bred she goes back to the guardian family for 7 of the 8 weeks of gestation (pregnancy). She will come back to our home for the delivery of her new pups. She will stay with us, the breeder for up to 7 weeks until the puppies are weaned. Each time the mom has a litter we will give the Guardian family a payment of $500.00. This payment is to help offset the normal cost of pet ownership such as vet care, food, and grooming. Once our female dog reaches 5 to 6 years of age we will get her spayed at the breeders cost and returned to her guardian family as their own personal pet and joy!
The Guardian is able to receive a pup at a greatly reduced cost, usually 1/2 to 2/3rds off the normal price. In addition the Guardian family receives $500.00 each time we have a litter. The Guardian family is responsible to care for the dog including house and basic obedience training, a well-balanced diet and all non-breeding related vet expenses.
The above is a basic outline of how our Guardian breeding program works. If you would like to be considered for this program and the benefits it provides please fill out our form so we can discuss it further.
