Guardian Home Program

At Snug Harbor Australian Labradoodles we do not kennel our dogs. All dogs live with approved guardian families.


Guardianship has become a wonderful part of our breeding program. Our breeding dogs are placed with families at no cost. The family provides a lifetime of love and care to their pup and we are able to breed these magnificent companions without kennels.

If you are interested in guardianship please contact us
