Guardian Home Information

A guardian home is a local family who is a forever home for one of the dogs in our breeding program. Guardian homes allow our breeding dogs to live with families and not in kennels as our program grows. Only so many dogs can fit on our lap! ;)

Our breeding program is designed around our ability to utilize guardian homes for our breeding dogs. This program is designed this way to benefit everyone, especially and most importantly the dogs, who are raised in a home with a family instead of a kennel. Think of it as being a foster family with the intention of adopting the dog permanently once their career is finished. Guardian homes are meant to be permament so that the dog does not need to go through a stressful re-homing.

Tango Wool retains ownership and breeding rights until the breeding contract is fulfilled. We want all of our dogs to be in a loving "forever" home. It is a win, win for everyone, most importantly the dog. Also, if Tango Wool is available, we will in-home board dogs at a greatly reduced price!

Most of the dogs in our guardian homes will be females but we may have a male from time to time. Females will have 3 to 4 litters depending on each particular guardian home puppy's breeding options and males can be in our program for 4 to 5 years depending on each individual puppy (at the sole discretion of Tango Wool).

Guardian families are responsible for normal dog care including but not limited to training, socialization, vet expenses (non-breeding related), food, grooming and lots of love and affection. Tango Wool pays for all breeding related expenses. As an added benefit for the guardian family, depending on our schedule we may provide care for your dog while on vacation.

We will ask you to visit our home periodically to ensure the dog is comfortable when he/she comes for breeding and whelping. You will be responsible for sending pictures when requested for website and Facebook updates. TANGO WOOL WHELPS all puppies at their home or one of their loving staff members homes. You may visit her any time that is convenient for both parties, once a week sounds great if you would like!

 The cost of a dog in our guardian program is a much reduced pet puppy price. We do not give our dogs away as we feel people often don't value what they don't pay for and it encourages the family to think seriously before bringing a puppy into their family and home. The cost will be refunded to you in full once the puppy passes all their health testing, has passed the Canine Good Citizen test, and has had three litters if a female or if male, you will be paid back in 1/4 increments as he sires his first four litters. After that, a stipend of $200 will be given for each successful litter he sires. The Canine Good Citizen test is not hard to pass, but tells us both that the puppy has mastered basic manners and commands. It will also foster a continuing great relationship with you and your puppy.  We have had puppies pass Canine Good Citizen after one full course of good puppy training, and others after two classes, but it is fun and well worth the time you put into the training.
