Just like buying a puppy, the Guardian is responsible for the daily care, veterinarian costs, food, maintenance grooming, training costs, etc. The Guardian is also responsible to put at least five AKC or UKC titles on the puppy. The title(s) can be in conformation and/or performance sports including obedience, rally, agility, tracking, hunting, fly ball, therapy, etc. Although not required, we do prefer people who have previous dog experience. Of course we provide guidance with any questions concerning the dog sport world. We often also offer to handle the puppy in the show ring as needed. Putting a title on a dog proves the animal is stable, intelligent, and can work in a stressful environment. We can offer show grooming until the puppy finishes the Championship title as most pet groomers are not familiar with show trims.
