We have decided to slightly expand our breeding program by 2 or 3 females in February 2021. We are currently on the search for amazing guardian families for our Cavaliers and Cavapoos in Utah and Idaho. Please APPLY for a puppy in the link at the bottom of this page.

If this sounds like a program that would work for your family, please complete the application below!

We believe that parent breeding dogs deserve a great home and a great life. Sometimes our program requires us to have more dogs than we can lovingly keep in our home, so our answer is to allow some of our breeding dogs to leave us and become part of another family’s life and home. Later, they then return to us for breeding, and for females, again when it’s time to give birth to the puppies. 

The parent dog gets to be a companion/pet and have the happiness of being part of a family and home – and great puppies get raised. This breeding/parent dog lives in their forever home, grows up, is trained, well socialized, loved,  cared for, and is part of the family. What could be better? The Guardian Family has the opportunity to have a truly wonderful dog at a very low cost, in exchange for working with us for a limited number of litters. The Guardian Family is paid for each female dog’s litter during the contract period, or per stud use for a male.  

This plan is used by many breeders and is often called a foster or “Guardian Home” program. Summarized – the breeding dog lives with their adoptive family and returns to us for breeding as needed. Females will return when in season, then again to deliver the puppies. The female stays with us for 10-14 days during her heat cycle, to be bred. Then, she returns to whelp (deliver) the puppies a week before she is due, staying with us until the puppies are weaned (about 8 weeks total). Males return when a female (that he is needed for stud service) is in heat. We work with our Guardian Homes using a simple contract and we provide support and guidance all along the way, staying in contact through the year. At the end of the Guardian Home Family contract, the dogs are spayed/neutered and belong 100% to the Guardian Family. 

Please note that we are very selective and only highly qualified families will be approved to foster our breeding dogs. We will conduct a telephone interview and home visit. Our breeding program depends on the quality of care provided by our guardian families – we expect the best home life possible for our dogs.
