Enchantment Poodles
Our Foster Program
HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS:

We place some of our breeding males and females in selected foster homes. These dogs are pick of the litter puppies that we select to keep back to see if they are good enough to enter our breeding program, or they are young adults that we have kept to show and have completed their conformation championship. We keep full ownership of the foster dogs until they are retired from our breeding program. For females this can be 5-7 years of age and for males this can be up to 11 years of age, as long as they are in good heatlh.




The foster family pays nothing for the puppy.

In exchange, you agree to let us have full access to the foster dogs to have back for breeding and you agree that the dog will live as a loving family member and cherished pet.

We are very selective in who we choose to become a foster family. The foster parents go through a detailed screening process. You must be experienced dogs owners who know how to already care for a dog, knowing the rights and wrongs. You must have a veterinary reference and groomer and/or trainer reference. You have to follow our vaccine schedule and only used flea/heartworm meds that we approve of as well as all other medications. Some medications are not safe for breeding animals. You must only feed the food we recommend. You must have a secure fenced yard. We try to make sure the dogs are placed in homes no further than 1 hour away; however, exceptions are made. We do a home inspection of all potential foster homes before any decisions are made. FOSTER HOMES ARE NOT ALLOWED TO USE FOSTER DOGS FOR BREEDING. They are strictly the foster family's pet. There is a contract that the foster family has to sign and abide by.



As a puppy grows we monitor their development. We either go to the foster home or ask that the pup be brought to us occasionally. Once old enough the foster home also agrees to let us take the dog to our own veterinarian for any health testing required for our breeding program. All health testing expenses are the responsibility of the breeder.

If it is determined that the dog is suitable for breeding, he/she must come back to us for breeding, breedings will not be done at the foster home. In the case of a female, she will come here, be bred and then return to the foster family. She is usually with us for about 1 week for the breeding. She then comes back to the kennel 2 1/2-3 weeks prior to her due date to have the puppies. She will remain with us until the pups are all gone, usually when the pups are 9 weeks of age. For males, they will also come to us for breeding. They are usually with us for about 1 week, then return to the foster family after the breedings.

When we no longer wish to breed the dog, the foster family is required to spay or neuter the dog at their expense. Once valid proof is provided (veterinary certificate and phone call to confirm) then full ownership will be signed over to the foster family.
