Our Guardianship Program was designed to keep our program with diverse genetics to choose from, but more importantly to benefit our dogs environment and well being. Aislin Fields is the name of our farm-we are not a kennel. All of litters are raised in our home around our family. We want to keep it that way but we also want to continue to raise and breed the ideal Australian Shepherd.
A lot goes into our pairings and litters. We value temperament, structure and genetics equally. They all have to be there not just one-if one is not we do not breed that individual. No dog is perfect structurally and we do our best to compliment the dams flaws with strengths in her mate. We hope this produces a better puppy and close to the ideal type. That being said it is beneficial to have more than one male to diversify things and genetics. Although keeping males together especially when females are in heat can be problematic.
For Males in Guardian Homes:
If one chooses to participate they will be able to adopt a superior breed type at a fraction of the cost of our puppies. In addition I will cover an annual vet check up and vaccines and when the time comes neuter the male with my vet. Once neutered I release all papers to you and you are then responsible in full. I retire my males usually by 5 years old if not earlier on some. How it works is if I choose to use a male for breeding I will notify you when the dam goes into heat and ovulation usually begins 10-14 days later. Once notified you would bring the dog to me to stay here for 5-7 days to have a successful chance of breeding. He then would be returned to you. This on average would happen 3-4 times per year. If you are very local you are welcome to wait and he can be returned that day and brought back. If not he can stay here. The other major benefit is my males lives happy, relaxed lives with families that can give way more attention then I ever could with multiples. They are also much calmer as there are not females in heat constantly around or other competitive males. We want this to be successful for everyone involved so we also try and match everyone up correctly. As dog trainers as well as breeders we have vast experience with this. If interested in our guardian program please contact me directly to discuss. Discounted Price for guardian home males is $2000.00
For the Moms this works a little different. When they go into heat you would notify me and then we would bring them back to my house for a week for breeding usually at week 2 of heat. Then once bred they can remain with you for most the pregnancy. They would return to me a week prior to their due date to settle and would stay here for a total of 7 weeks to birth and raise their puppies. This happens once a year from the age of 2-5 years. I retire all my dams at 5 years old and again I will spay them at my vet no charge to you. Discounted price for guardian home females is $1000.00
I will also watch any dog in guardianship program at no extra charge. We will neuter and spay the dog at 5 years old with our vet and cover that expense as well as any vaccinations while being used in the guardian home. Guardian homes must also use the recommended food we use and recommended heartworm which we like interceptor plus-this expense as well as any flea/tick you may want to use is your responsibility.
Please contact me if you are interested in our guardian home directly. We do require that you reside somewhat local to keep things simple.
