In order for me to give my dogs the best possible life, it is important to limit how many dogs I keep at home. To be a good breeder of quality dogs, however, I need to keep, evaluate, show and add quality bloodlines to my breeding program. I always like to keep one or two pick puppies from my litters to monitor their growth and development. Some will eventually fit into my breeding program. I prefer to place these puppies in guardian homes.
A Thai Bangkaew Dog needs to be a part of the family to develop their full potential. That is why I have a guardian home program.
What are the basics?
As a guardian puppy grows up, I monitor the temperament, conformation, and health. If the dog is showing potential, he/she will be used in my breeding program. We will x-ray their hips (at my expense) to verify that he/she does not have hip dysplasia, have eyes tested and certified. If the hips or other health test results are not above average in the breed (good enough to breed), I will require the guardian parents to have the dog spayed/neutered and ownership is then signed over to the guardian family.
Females are in guardianship until they turn 5 years of age or after 1 complete litter. After 1 litter, Roy Hill will provide a written agreement to have her spayed and the guardian family will get her spayed and ownership papers will be signed over to the guardian family. Males are in guardianship until they turn 7 years of age. At 7 years of age, after a written agreement is signed, the guardian family will get him neutered. ownership papers will be signed over to guardian parents.
Where the dog comes first
The guardian home program is an excellent way of life for the dog, it's a good deal for the guardian parents, and you will be a very special part of the Roy Hill team helping in the Thai Bangkaew Dog development breeding program where the dog comes first. It's one of those "win - win" situations for everyone involved. The family receives a quality, pick puppy/dog. I am able to improve the breed by using only the best for bettering the breed. And the reason why I have a guardian home program is because the puppy/dog will live in a home as a spoiled pet and receive lots of attention. I'm giving the dog/puppy to the guardian family to raise and love and keep as a member of their family. This program allows families an opportunity to own one of my quality pups/dogs available at a very reduced cost. Some puppies/dogs depending on their personality will be more suitable for singles or couples with an active or relaxed lifestyle. You must be approved as guardian parents and agree to abide by my contract of care.
