Our parent dogs are cared for by our well-trained, full-time staff in our beautiful facility. Many of our parent dogs live in guardian homes and stay with us during the breeding and birthing process.


A guardian home provides our parent dogs with a safe and loving environment with a family or an individual.

While our parent dogs are in guardian homes, and enrolled in our breeding program, food and vitamins are provided. Co-ownership is shared between guardian and The Paw Pad Doodles until the parent dog is retired from the breeding program.



Once a dog is retired (usually before their 7th birthday), a guardian becomes a forever family and ownership is then transferred to the guardian.

Guardians of our sires are required to live within a 30-minute drive of our facility. Guardians of our females are required to live within 2 hours of our facility.
