*Families should have some flexibility in their daily schedules. We do not expect that our dogs/puppies would be alone for 8-10 hours per day.
*Obedience training and regular grooming is required.
*To produce the finest and healthiest puppies possible, quality feeding is paramount and our guardian families are an integral part of that process.
We feed a mostly raw diet of meat, bones and organs. We will guide you in this area. Super easy and the best thing you can do for your animal!
Must live within 2 hours of Carlisle, PA
Our girls will be with us during their litters (5-6 weeks) but will be returned to you as quickly as possible. You are also welcome to visit IvyLane if you would like. Most of our girls will have 3-4 litters and be spayed and retired. Generally, for the guardian family, it is a 2-3 year commitment to IvyLane Labradoodles. After her retirement, you have fulfilled your contractual obligation so she stays with you forever and your commitment is completed.
Must live within 30 min of Carlisle,PA
Males have a much longer breeding career, but do not need to stay at IvyLane for extended time periods as the females do. Usually, we use the male and return him in the same day.
We have had over 30 guardian families since 2008 and it continues to be successful when we match the right dog to the right family.
