Guardian Program

We are looking for Guardians for a puppy from select upcoming litters. 

We love our dogs and want all our dogs to live their very best lives as cherished members of the family. This is particularly true for our breeding girls. As an in-home breeder, the success and happiness of our future puppies is due in large part to our guardian home program. We do not want our dogs to live in kennels, we want our dogs to know the joys of snuggling up to you on the couch and greeting you with wild enthusiasm every single time you walk in the door.

A Guardian home is a family that adopts one of our future breeding girls as a puppy and gives them a forever home and family. As a Guardian family, you provide the same love, care, affection, and training as you would any puppy, while Nutmeg by the Sea retains the rights to breed the puppy.

As a Guardian family, you receive the very best “pick of the litter” puppy with no payment and you join our Nutmeg by the Sea breeding program and family. You will also be able to purchase excellent quality dog food at a wholesale price. While the Guardian is responsible for all pet-related expenses like annual check-ups, food, grooming, and training, we take care of any expenses associated with testing and breeding the dog, arrange for her romantic dates, and a week before the dog is due, she comes to stay with us to whelp her litter. Your dog will stay with us until she weans her puppies at six weeks of age, then returns to your loving home. 

A typical breeding schedule for a female dog in our program is to breed on the first heat cycle after her first birthday, which is typically her second heat cycle. After that first breeding, the dog may be bred again on the next cycle or may skip a cycle, depending on a variety of factors. Nutmeg by the Sea may breed the dog three or possibly four times and then we pay to spay the dog, and she “retires” to live the rest of her life as your very well loved pet.

Becoming a Guardian family is a truly magical experience. It is a joy to witness the creation of these new lives and be a part of the process, and as a Guardian family, you are able to visit your sweet mama dog and she will be delighted to show you her new puppies.

Requirements to be a Guardian family:

  • Live within 15 minutes of Darien, CT
  • Have an adult home for most of the day
  • Have a safe, fenced-in yard 
  • Have children older than six
  • Keep female dogs away from intact male dogs when in heat
  • Train and stimluate your dog to be a good, well-socialized, well-mannered dog
  • Notify us immediately when the dog goes into heat
  • Visit our home periodically to ensure the dog is comfortable when dog comes for breeding / whelping
  • Bring the dog to Nutmeg by the Sea as needed for health testing, breedings, and whelpings

Interested? Intrigued?

We’d love to talk to you to see if this is the right fit for your family and our program.
