Guardian Families

Volunteering for a passionate job!

Groodles Australia relies on the generosity of special guardians to provide loving, permanent homes for our breeding mums and dads.

Our guardian families must be patient, dedicated to quality time, possess a great love for and understanding of animals and have an appropriate home environment to raise several litters.

It is our philosophy that our breeding dogs are considered first and foremost as beloved family pets.

Volunteer families will be supported, guided and visited regularly by Groodles Australia staff, who will always consider what is best for the welfare of the breeding dog, its offspring and the family involved. Becoming a guardian should be carefully considered as it is a big responsibility. Raising beautiful, social and healthy pups is a big job – and the guardian families we select are very special indeed!

It is expected that our Guardian families have raised dogs before and have a basic knowledge of dog behaviour. It is very important to us that our breeding dogs are well socialised and well mannered. We ask our Guardian homes to commit to obedience training for their puppy. Starting with puppy preschool at your local vet, followed by further training at your own cost. 

We understand this is a big commitment but we find our Guardians enjoy being part of a program that not only helps improve the quality of the breed, but also a program who gives back to the community through donations made from puppy sale and also providing assistance dogs. 

If you are interested in adopting one of our future breeding pups, or if you have a Golden Retriever or Poodle you would consider breeding, please contact us.

We are more than happy to discuss what is involved in the program, or how else you may contribute in supporting Groodles Australia.

All Guardians must live in the Ipswich/Brisbane and surrounds region.

Advance Pet Food have very generously sponsored our program and will feed all our Guardian dogs for free for the duration of their time in our program. This means up to 5-7 years of free food. We are very excited about this sponsorship as this allows us to make larger donations to charity.

Advance Pet Food is Australian owned, made, and tailored to Australian pets.
