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 one is in heat can be problematic. This is where the guardianship program comes in.
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 3-4 days to have a successful chance of breeding. He then would be returned to you. This on average would happen 2-3 times per year at most. 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.
Listed below are some of the males we have for adoption for our program. Brief bio attached but please contact me for more info. All of our dogs are crate trained, leash trained and have a recall. 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.
