Guardian Family is required to contact us immediately when the female goes in her heat cycle. A delayed contact can affect our breeding schedule and cost us, so this is mandatory.  


An intact female usually has a heat cycle that will last between 14  - 21 days. During this time, we will need access to her for breeding related appointments.

Guardian Families must have reliable transportation, and a willingness to bring the Guardian pup/dog to us when needed throughout the year.

Feed same food we do (Royal Canine) or give them a different kind of food, BUT FIRST, PLEASE, slowly add the new food in the Royal Canine until the puppy/dog is eating just the new food, it takes about 5-7 days. If you don't do this slowly, the dog will have diarrhea and its not good.
