Guardian Program

A guardian program allows breeding and show dogs to be placed in a loving home environment with their forever homes at a young age, while continuing to contribute to the preservation of the breed. This prevents the stress of being rehomed at 5-6 years old. This allows my girls to be raised in a home environment, be well socialized while still receiving the stellar care of a high-quality breeding dog. 

Pros

  • Minimized costs while the dog is in the program (I cover: vet bills, vitamins & supplements, grooming, etc.

  • When the dog retires the dog is spayed, has her teeth cleaned and is given to the guardian family, free of charge

  • If at any time the guardian program or dog ownership does not suit your lifestyle I take the dog back, no questions asked.

  • A 25% discount at The Hairy Dog Pet Supply Store to cover toys, beds, food, etc. for all of your guardian dog's needs.

Cons

  • The dog is owned by Hurricane Cavaliers until she is spayed and is retired. Major decisions such as diet, grooming, medical care and breeding is up to me. 

  • The dog will come back to Hurricane Cavaliers every time she is in heat. Although she will remain with her family during gestation, she will return to me for 8-10 weeks to deliver and raise her babies. 

  • Breeding dogs blow their coat and look different physically after raising a litter of puppies. 

  • Our dogs must be fed Open Farm Dog Food. Open Farm can be purchased online, at approved retailers or at The Hairy Dog in Phoenix 

  • Guardians are responsible for all transportation to and from Hurricane Cavaliers (for breeding & whelping) and The Hairy Dog (grooming).
