We will be looking for Guardian homes for our next bernedoodle litter.
F1b mini and F1 mini coming available.
These puppies will be ready for their new homes later January. Please contact us now to get pre aproved.
At Yankeedoodle pups we believe that every dog deserves to have a loving, forever home. All of our dogs are part of our family and live in our home rather than kennels so that we know they are getting as much attention as possible. Because of this we have decided to offer a Guardian Home Program. A Guardian Home is a permanent home for one of our breeding males or females.
Becoming a Guardian Home gives you the opportunity to have one of our top notch, "Pick of the Litter" puppies as a family pet. 3-4 litters or up to the age of 4 for females & up to the age of 6 for males. Yankeedoodle pup will retain ALL breeding rights. We reserve the right to cancel our guardianship program at anytime if we deem necessary. Once retired, he/she will be neutered/spayed at our expense and returned back to you.
If you are a Guardian for one of our females you will be compensated $100/puppy OR $1000/litter (your choice) once her puppies go home. You are welcome to schedule a visit while she is with us and play with the puppies!
As a Guardian Home you will be required to pay for the everyday expenses of owning a dog including annual exams, vaccines, food, etc. We will pay for all breeding related costs including health testing.
Becoming a Guardian Home is not for everyone. You MUST be willing and able to follow these requirements:
If this is something you may be interested in that’s great, we can schedule a phone conversation. After that you can come and meet the puppy the first week of January.
