Independence Poodles does not use kennel facilities, dog runs, etc. All of our poodles are loved & adored family pets first and foremost. With that goal in mind, we've chosen to entrust some of our up & coming breeding prospects to guardian homes. Guardians not only receive the support of the breeder, but additionally get the benefits of our amazing guardian network that includes groomers, trainers, & awesome poodle lovers!
How Does It Work?
A selected poodle will be placed with a guardian family at no up front cost. Guardians are required to provide a safe and loving home, high quality kibble, regular grooming, training, standard veterinary care, and monthly flea/tick/heartworm preventative. Guardians must be willing to deliver the poodle to the breeder for health testing appointments, breeding, & whelping. All breeding expenses, including spay/neuter at retirement, are covered by the breeder. Independence Poodles maintains ownership of each guardian poodle during his/her breeding career. At retirement, ownership is signed over to the guardian.
Who Can Be a Guardian?
Guardian placements must reside within the DFW metroplex & must be committed to our goal of raising happy, healthy, socialized poodles. The application process includes a questionnaire, phone interview, reference check, and in home visit. We require a signed contract that lists all requirements/expectations for both the guardian and breeder. Independence Poodles reserves the right to remove a poodle from its guardian placement at any time if it is found that contract conditions are not being met.
