Guardian Home Information

Shadow Mountain Australian Labradoodles INC, Soutern Branch is currently looking for guardian homes for a few of our Australian Labradoodle dogs and puppies. We are committed to providing a wonderful life for ALL of our dogs. All of our Breeding Dogs are pets. Our Guardian Program allows families that might not be able to have one of our dogs or families that want to support a "better way of breeding" to become part of our Shadow Mountain Family and Team.

A Guardian Family Home is a place where one of our Australian Labradoodle dogs or puppies chosen specially for Shadow Mountain Breeding Program lives as a wonderful family dog. Shadow Mountain retains all breeding rights, and guardian family gets a pet for reduced fee. The Australian Labradoodle dog or puppy will live with you and come to Shadow Mountain only when required testing needs to be done, when it is time to be bred or when she is ready to have her puppies- health testing and any reproductive costs are that of Shadow Mountains’.

If Guardian family wishes to take the dog to a vet of their own nearby, guardian family must notify Shadow Mountain as to which veterinarian for approval, notify Shadow Mountain when there is a scheduled appointment and forward all vaccination records and paperwork associated with each visit as well.
