We are committed to having every breeding dog living as a family pet in a home. An Australian Labradoodle Guardianship allows us to expand our breeding program and still have just a few dogs living as family members in our own home. We do not operate a kennel they are family members.
MERLIN is a medium size 30 to 35 lbs black male phantom born May 17, 2021. He has a loose curl silky soft non-shedding fleece coat. This boy is very laid back and he is a sweet boy. He is also the class clown he will have you laughing. He is doing very well in training and he is house trained here, he will need redirection in his new unfamiliar home.

Australian Labradoodle Guardianship
Labradoodle Guardianship is basically having a loving family dog for its entire life that you share with us for breeding purposes. Females are usually bred 3 to 4 times between the ages of 2 and 6 years. Males are used more often but for shorter time periods and their breeding life can range from 10 months through 5 years. These dogs are beautiful, breeding quality dogs that will go through genetic testing to confirm excellence. The dog lives with its guardian family forever and there is no purchase price. A $500 deposit is required and if the puppy doesn’t qualify as a breeding dog the dog is yours for a pet price of 500.00. Once the dog is done with its breeding contract the 500.00 will be refunded to the guardian and the dog will be de-sexed.
