All about our guardianship program

My family and I believe that every dog deserves to have a happy , loving, forever home. All of our dogs and their puppies are part of our family and live in our home rather than kennels. As Darling St. Berdoodles grows, and as the size of our home does not, we have decided to offer a Guardian Home Program. A Guardian Home is a permanent home for one of our breeding males or females.


Being a Guardian Home gives you the opportunity to have one of our , "pick of the litter" puppies as a family pet and care for them as your own. We are excited to offer this unique choice for people who want to care for and love a dog that will continue to help our Darling St. Bernards and St. Berdoodles bloodline grow.


Some requirements of a Guardian Home: 


$500 deposit is required, rather than buying the puppy outright. 

An agreement must be signed

Darling St. Berdoodles will retain ALL breeding rights and retains ownership until the end of his/her breeding career (3-4 litters and up to the age of 6 for males).  

The $500 deposit will NOT be refunded at the end of the breeding term. 

The Guardian home must be within 50 miles of Newcastle, Ca. 

We reserve the right to cancel our guardianship agreement with each home at anytime if we deem necessary. 

Once retired from guardianship, he/she will be neutered/spayed at your expense , as soon as possible . 

If you are a Guardian for one of our females and you choose to keep the littler at your home you will be compensated $300/litter once her puppies go home. Or the female will be picked up prior to her due date and we will deliver the puppies and keep the female until the puppies go home at 8-9 weeks. 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, training, food, vitamins , medications , etc. We will pay for all breeding related costs including all health testing.


Becoming a Guardian Home is not for everyone. You MUST be willing and able to follow these requirements:

* Have previous experience with dogs.

* Be willing to teach basic commands such as sit, stay, lay-down, and leave it.

* Be willing to socialize puppies. This is very important!

* He/She must be an indoor pet and never left unattended outside.

* Feed a premium, quality food.

* All other dogs in the home MUST be fixed if they are the opposite sex.

* Provide regular exercise.

* Willing to let us, the breeder, visit your home.

* Contact Breeder immediately in the event of a serious illness or accident.

* Send a copy of all vet visits to Breeder.

* Must not allow he/she to mate with any unapproved dogs.

* Provide veterinary care when needed.

* If you are a guardian for a female dog, you must be willing to drop her off for 1-2 weeks while she is bred. Then drop her back off 1 week prior to her whelping date. She will stay with us until the puppies are weaned.

* If you are a guardian for a male dog, you must be willing to drop him off for 3-5 days for breedings unless arrangements are made ahead of time for us to pick him up.

* Be able to communicate with us, the breeder, about scheduling testing, mating, whelping, and anything else breeding related.
