GUARDIAN HOME PROGRAM
At Idaho Jewels, we believe every dog should be raised in a loving home and being a Guardian Family is an excellent way to have a beautiful puppy as a forever family pet at a very low expense. Since we do not believe in kenneling dogs, to continue our breeding program we rely on trustworthy, caring families who are selected to participate in our Guardian Program. This ensures that all of our future breeding dogs will be raised as a family member in a loving home environment.
The majority of Guardian Homes acquire their puppies at 8 weeks of age; however sometimes we have older males and females available. Adoption fees are waived for Guardian Families as acknowledgment for their participation. Your puppy will be the first or second "pick of the litter"and in exchange we retain breeding rights for the life of the Guardian Contract.
For the birth of each litter, females return to Idaho Jewels for 7-8 weeks. Guardian Families are always welcome to come visit and are encouraged to come see the puppies as they grow! Eight weeks after every litter, you will receive a financial gift from Idaho Jewels in appreciation for allowing your female to participate in our Guardian Program.
Prospective Guardian Homes must fill out an application and are generally required to live within 100 miles of Rigby, Idaho (some exceptions may apply). A small, "getting started" fee is part of the acceptance process and will help you get started with food and pet care supplies. As a Guardian Home, you will be responsible for the dog's wellness including: vet care, immunizations, socialization, proper diet, exercise... and most importantly being loved as a family pet! Any cost related to health testing and breeding will be the responsibility of Idaho Jewels.
A Guardian Family must be willing and able to return the dog back to us for health testing, breeding, whelping and raising puppies. After the dog is finished with their breeding career, she will be spayed and the ownership of the dog will officially be transferred to the Guardian Family.
