Below we explain the different types of contracts and agreements under which we place our dogs into homes.

If you have any further questions about these categories, please do not hesitate to ask us.

***All of our pups are placed on Non-Breeding contracts or under our Guardian Family Program. No pups are placed on Full (Breeding) Registration***


A Non-Breeding Agreement (also known as a "Limited Registration") is how most of our pups are sold. The CKC registration will show that the buyer is the full owner of the pup but that the pup will not be used for breeding. There is no demand that the owner must spay or neuter their dog but any puppies that come from this dog will not be eligible to be registered. The purpose of the Non-Breeding Agreement is to discourage irresponsible breeding and to emphasize that this pup's purpose in life is to be a companion and friend to a special family.

 However, this pup may still be entered in shows and trials by the buyer at any time. A Non-Breeding agreement may be issued to a trusted buyer and may be lifted by Starstruck Labradors once the dog has reached a mature age and has passed all required health exams.

Each Guardian contract is unique. We like to use this contract because it allows us to hold the breeding rights to this pup or dog, while allowing the dog to become a family's loved pet. While the pricing of dogs on Guardian contracts is done on a case-by-case basis, we offer free boarding, and other incentives and services to the families of dogs who are enrolled in this program.
