Creekside Guardian Program

An Alternative Path to Puppy Ownership!


What is a Guardian Home?

As we’ve said, we love our dogs. We want the highest quality life for them. We believe each dog deserves daily attention, affection, exercise and care. To be sure each dog receives just that, we limit the number of dogs that live with us in our homes. In order to continue to breed high-quality doodles, we look for families that would be a good fit with our own Creekside Family to become Guardians. These families receive the pick of the litter puppy, to love and keep as their own, for little to no cost. When of breeding age, the female dog will come back to us during her heat cycle. She will return to the guardian family after breeding to remain until 1 week before her due date. Then she’ll return to Creekside to birth her pups. Guardians are welcome to come visit their dog and her new pups and will be compensated for the time their dog is absent from them. When her pups are 7-8 weeks of age, mom will return to her guardian home. After she has birthed the specified number of litters, the momma will be retired to live out her life with her guardian family.

Cinder- guardian prospect

,inder is a 3 yr old silver F1b labradoodle. She weighs around 60 pounds and sometimes still acts like a goofy puppy. Other times she is very quiet and serious. This girl has a curly wool coat that won’t shed and could easily pass for a poodle if groomed like one. She is not overly affectionate but does enjoy being petted and brushed and is a gentle soul. Cinder would be contracted for two litters. There is a $500 deposit required to become Cinder’s guardian, which would be returned via stipends paid out with each litter she produced. Cinder would come to us for breeding and to whelp and raise her puppies, returning to her guardian family when her pups are weaned. For more information on Cinder please email

Harley- Guardian prospect

Harley is our beautiful 4 year old AKC/CKC chocolate lab. We love our Harley and would very much like to see her in a guardian home where she can be lavished with undivided attention. Harley has a great retrieving instinct and absolutely loves to fetch. She loves water and would make a great dock diving prospect if someone was interested in the sport. She never hesitates to launch herself into the pool after a training dummy! Harley is a sweet, affectionate girl with a lot of energy and would be great for an active, outdoorsy family. She will be contracted for two more litters of puppies and would then be spayed at our expense and retired to her guardian family permanently. For information on Harley, please email us and we’ll be happy to give you the details. A $500 deposit is required to become Harley’s guardian, along with a completed and approved application. This would be returned to the guardian which each litter of puppies she raises successfully. Harley would come to us for breeding and whelping and would stay until her puppies are weaned, returning to her guardian family after the pups weaned.  This is a great opportunity to get a wonderful, and might we add, beautiful lab to add to your family.  Email for details.
