In case you did not know at Dashing Doodles we have started a new way of doing things! We have started a guardian home program for our dam/sires. Not all of our dogs are owned by guardian parents but only one will be soon! I have thought about it for a while and finally decided to give it a try. Hoping it all goes well! We may consider adding another guardian home later! If you are interested in this feel free to contact me. You can find out more at the Guardian Home Contract Page. There you can see if you will make a good fit for one of our dogs. Usually guardian dogs leave our home as a puppy and live with their new families for the rest of their lives. After breeding is done (around 5 years old) she is spayed and we sign the dog over to you to keep. There are stipulations which must be met.
The dad is a AKC white poodle and the mom is a creamy/tan f1b Goldendoodle. We are expecting her puppies to be born in November and ready by Christmas! We are hoping to get white, creamy/tan babies from this litter. If you are interested please fill out the puppy application.
Get ready to read about the tie! Yesterday Starlight tied with Romeo. I drove over 2 hours to meet them at stud owners home on the NC east coast. The owner, Cara, was so friendly. Starlight was ready, thankfully. Within 15-20 minutes they were finished and we were back on the road. I got to take her back home rather than leave her and make the trip twice since she was ready! I was so thankful for that. This was the first time I had ever traveled to the stud's home for Starlight and I was not sure what to expect. In the past we have had bad experiences using studs. With Ruby, our miniature poodle, the stud had never been bred and the owner didn't know if they had tied because they were left a lone for short periods of time, which left room for possible conception. Ruby ended up not being pregnant and we had people waiting for a puppy on the waiting list! Lesson Learned. Life is full of trial and error and I have learned many things just from personal experiences. As a previous Maltese breeder of over 5 years we always had a stud around to do the job and we never had to worry about the perfect timing to get our females to conceive. Our male was there all the time and there were no problems. At times I am tempted to get my own male for our two girls. Maybe one day.
So, if you are interested in a puppy that will be ready to be picked up around Christmas, (December 20th, 2018) let me know. I expect these babies to be non-shedding, white, off white, or tan and very sweet just like the parents!!
