Breeding Dog Host Homes

Save to Favorites

Elite Detection K9


Elite Detection breeds Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds whose puppies become scent detection dogs. We are seeking homes to host moms and, for a short time, their puppies during their breeding careers.

No experience is necessary, other than providing a loving home for the mom and her puppies.

All host families receive the following support from Elite Detection K9:

  • One-on-one support from an EDK9 breeding specialist

  • Guidance through whelping (birthing)

  • Complimentary boarding when you go on vacation (during the breeding life of the dog)

  • The option to adopt the mom after she retires (usually at approximately four years of age)

Elite Detection K9 provides heartworm and flea preventative as well as veterinarian care at our partner veterinarian hospital. Breeding mom host homes accept the responsibility of providing routine care, feeding, and transportation of the mom and puppies to our campus and partner veterinarian hospital.
