Guardian Homes


Every dog deserves individual attention and care in a loving family environment. To ensure every dog is given the attention and care that they deserve, we offer a Guardian/co-ownership Program. 


Individuals or families who qualify, will love and care for one of our dogs in their home, while we retain breeding rights for the first 3 litters. After 3 litters are complete, full ownership is signed over to the guardian family. Then the guardian family can choose to breed or spay the dog at that time.

Requirements for guardian individuals/families are to care for their new puppy or dog physically and financially. Taking on a guardianship role means the puppy is your forever pet.


Atkinson Family Goldendoodles will cover all costs associated with the breeding and care for all litters produced by Guardian Family dogs at our home. 

Boarding process for a female Guardian dog:

Once they are old enough, female guardian dogs will spend 6 to 12 weeks a year in our care. Guardian families are always welcome to visit during this time! Guardians must be able to detect a heat cycle and keep females away from intact male dogs during this time. We will board your dog for a few days during the breeding process. She then will go home with you while she is pregnant. Nearing the end of the pregnancy, she will come back to us for 6-8 weeks while she delivers and whelps her litter. Send us an email at if you are interested in becoming a guardian home.


Guardian families requirements:

  • Have a fenced yard, own a car, and own a home 

  • Have previous experience with owning a dog or have adequate knowledge of caring for a dog

  • Not own any other intact male dogs in the guardian home

  • Be able to provide a puppy or dog with proper health care, nutrition, and exercise

  • Be able to properly train and socialize a puppy or dog

  • Be able to drive the dog to and from our home for whelping or breeding

  • Live within 120 miles of Logan, Utah. 

  • Take their puppy/dog to the vet for its annual vaccines and whenever else needed (aside from breeding related visits).
