Here at Glass House Puppies, we pride ourselves in the fact that our dogs are a part of our family. Unfortunately, we are unable to keep all of the dogs we will be using for breeding in our home. That is where you come in! Occasionally, we would like to add some new dogs and puppies to our program as potential future moms and dads! And we want to find Guardian Families who will love them just as much as we would! Families who qualify for the Guardianship will get a free puppy/dog, while we retain breeding rights and use them in our program.
Here are a few of the main things that we expect from our guardians:
Must be located within a one hour driving distance of our home
Must provide proper vet care, nutrition and exercise
We require that our dogs live inside. We also prefer our guardians to have a fenced in yard.
Must keep the dog/puppy groomed and free of fleas & ticks
Must properly train and socialize the dog/puppy
Special requirements for owning a female dog: When your female comes in heat, we will keep her here at our home for a few days for the breeding process. She will also stay here for the duration of whelping her litter. Litters will ALWAYS be whelped and raised in our home, no exceptions. Our guardians are always welcome to visit a any point during this time. Guardians must familiarize themselves with heat cycles and be able to detect this in their female and keep her away from all intact males during that time. Females retire around the ages of 4-6, are spayed and will then live the rest of her life with her family.
Special requirements for owning a male dog: When needed for breeding, males will stay with us for up to a week at a time. Males must be kept away from all intact females AT ALL TIMES. Failure to abide by this rule will result in immediate removal of the dog. Our males retire around the ages of 5-7, are neutered and will then live out the rest of their lives with their family.
Any available Guardian opportunities will be listed below.
