Why do we do these Guardian Owner(s) programs?

Guardian Owner(s) families help to save our rare breed by keeping puppies or adults we as breeders cannot keep at home but need as part of our future breeding program and to keep the breed's future safe. These dogs are very important and are owned by families as their own dog forever, often are already Champions and produce pups that go on to promote the breed in future years. The dog is available to suitable mutually trusted owners and have conditions applied.  See full disclosure. Contact us for the Guardian Owner(s) contract agreement of this program.

No guardian pups or adults available.

Why a Guardian Owner(s) home?

At Masterkarn kennels we feel that to succeed as preservation breeders and to properly develop the German Pinschers as a breed, it requires us to have a number of dogs in our breeding program to successfully develop our bloodlines. Rather than lots of kennel dogs sharing our attention, we like our dogs to have caring attention in family homes, where they can enjoy the Family/show or Performance dog’s life. At times there are always promising puppies from a wide variety of breeding here and for overseas imported dogs that work within our breeding ideal. A manageable number of dogs should be the rule. Therefore, as a breeder, you cannot keep every puppy yourself for various reasons, even if you would like to. To find a way to find the breeding base in to enrich Australia’s German Pinscher bloodlines and the overall gene pool, we offer the guardian program. We like to prepare promising puppies for further breeding in the future. That is why we provide dogs that we have bred or imported, with a security deposit that is returned upon fulfilment of the agreement and we keep their breeding rights by an agreement that gives us clear breeding rights, easily understood for the Guardian family program owners. The dogs are subject to the breeding regulations of our kennels and the governing body of Dogs Australia. We assume all costs that are necessary for breeding approval and breeding use (e.g. Health tests). Dog owner costs such as Insurance, general care and vet costs or feed is taken over by the Dog owner. We give our most precious potential breeding and show puppies away, so we have great expectations of the future Guardian home family.  Mutual trust and reliability are very important to us. Regular contact is essential. If you are interested in a promising puppy for your family as a Guardian home, please contact us.

Your responsibility under either agreement...

You will be responsible for loving them, walking them, grooming them, making sure they have a good diet, vet check-ups and a safe place to sleep and play, while they participate in their breeding/show program just as you would your family dog. Collecting their health tests and making them available for breeding stud dogs or bitches used as part of the contract agreement.

You must be willing to keep the female or male entire and live in Qld within reasonable driving distance of about 2.5 hours from us. Be willing to take the Guardian owner(s) dog to all appointments arranged by us as per agreement. Contact us for more info on our Guardian owner(s) breeding program. Regardless of the age of the Guardian owner(s) dog, we require Guardian owner(s) to pay for the dog at an extremely reduced price of $1000.00 ( this is returned upon fulfillment of the agreement) + pay for the yearly eye health testing as part of the contractual agreement instead of the normal cost of a puppy. Masterkarn kennels will pay all other health tests required by us. This initial fee of a $1,000 is returned to the Guardian owner(s) once the first litter is bred and sold for any females on the program. Males on the program will have an inconvenience fee paid the guardian owners for each stud service for Masterkarn kennels. 

YOU DO NOT have to out-lay any other costs to complete HEALTH TESTING required by Masterkarn kennels for us to initially breed our Guardian home dogs.

At 6 months The Guardian Home dog will need to have his full breed DNA collected and sent to Orivet for a certified result. (Generally already completed prior sending to a Guardian home).

18 months - 2 years. The Guardian Home agree to have yearly eye exams (arranged for by Guardian Owner(s) nearest to the dogs date of birth until the dog is 9 years old. Reports sent to Masterkarn kennels every year.

 The Breeder(s) will make an appointment for your dog for an eye exam , a heart exam , Hips and Elbow scoring (arranged by us at our vet) and must have a passing grade to continue the program. Masterkarn kennels will pay for these initial tests.

 Should the dog complete all health tests with passing grades for our Guardian owner(s) stud program. These may include the stud service, fuel and other costs. Our Guardian owner(s) will receive an inconvenience fee as stated in our agreement. 

The Guardian Owner(s) will not receive an inconvenience fee if another Breeder(s) is interested in using the Guardian dog under this agreement at stud. The Breeder(s) will facilitate this service at their home, including any vet visits. The Guardian Owner(s) instead will have 50% of the remaining stud fee after the costs of the service are taken out and repaid to the Breeder(s). The costs are related to fuel, food, AI, Progesterone and other fees are taken out prior to the stud fee division of 50/50 between the Guardian Owner(s) and the Breeder(s).

We have several successful dogs on our Guardian owner(s) agreement.

All dogs.

The future of our breeding program is resting with not just the Stud dogs, but females are also vitally important. Because breeders need to wait until an age appropriate time to use them for breeding, this is where the Guardian owner(s) breeding program comes into play. These young males/females are between 6 months and 4 years of age, basic training and socialized they need to be made available at occasional times for shows or at any time required by us for breeding.  Guardian owner(s) must live within 2.5 hours drive of Masterkarn kennels for us to have the dog available and be willing to travel to us or a dog show. The dog is placed as a minimal fee family pet to compensate the owner for the effort of keeping an intact male or female and agreeing to complete eye exams yearly.  The dog/bitch is also required to be shown at specialty or major All breeds shows including the Royal shows.
