Guardian Home Application

At DreamTyme Acres all our breeding dogs live in our home as members of our family or they live in the homes of some very special families called Guardians.
The Guardian program was designed with the well being of breeding dogs in mind. In an effort for breeders to expand their breeding programs without having to house numerous dogs in kennels or outside dog runs, some very creative breeders started the Guardian Home program.

The Guardian Home program allows breeders like ourselves to keep an active breeding program without raising dogs in kennels which is not even an option for us and this program also allows breeding dogs to live in FOREVER homes with a family..instead of being rehomed at the end of their breeding careers.
 
Guardian dogs are raised just like you would raise and socialize any other puppy to adulthood with just a few extra precautions, for example keeping them away from unneutered males while they're in season. Once the female guardian comes into her second heat cycle, which happens between one and a half to two years old, DreamTyme Acres would breed her to a stud of our choosing. Bred females stay with their guardian family during the 63 day pregnancy then about a week before their due date they come to stay with us to get situated and adjust to our family and routine before whelping their litter. We will be at their side to help them to whelp (give birth) and they will continue to stay with us as part of our family for 2 months to raise their puppies. We make sure they're given lots of affection, good nutrition, grooming and veterinary care while they're in our care. 
Each guardian dog contract is written different but we usually agree to a 2 to 4 litter contract. Once the contract is completed then they're retired from breeding and spayed at our expense and get to live out the rest of their long and healthy life with some pretty exciting stories to tell.

This is not the "Get a dog at low cost" ,this is a big emotional commitment. Please think it through before you apply. 
Hopefully, you've already read our Guardian Family information page and believe this is something you'd like to be part of .. if not then please read it first.

Once you've read it then please fill out the Guardian Family application below..and we will be in touch with you when we have an opening for a new guardian family. I will only be in touch if we have an actual opening and I think you might be a good candidate.
