Our Health Guarantee to You*
Health Check Policy — Before your puppy is sent home to you, he or she has undergone an extensive veterinary health check and we have followed our vaccination and deworming protocols in an effort to ensure your puppy arrives healthy and happy.
Year 1 Health Guarantee — If, within one year of purchase, your puppy is found to have a congenital or hereditary condition which adversely affects your puppy’s health, we will provide you with a replacement puppy of equivalent value.
Years 2-10 Health Guarantee — If, after the first year, but before the tenth anniversary of your purchase, your puppy is found to have a congenital or hereditary condition which adversely affects your puppy’s health, we will offer you a credit of 50% of your purchase price towards the purchase of another puppy from us.
YOU MUST FULFILL THESE OBLIGATIONS, AS EXPLAINED HEREIN, OR THIS HEALTH GUARANTEE WILL TERMINATE AND BECOME NULL AND VOID*
You must have your puppy examined by a licensed veterinarian within five (5) business days of receipt of the puppy and, to ensure the health of your dog, you must visit the veterinarian on a regular basis ensuring your dog receives proper health checkups and timely inoculations.
Your puppy comes with up to date vaccinations. You therefore should not vaccinate the puppy within the first ten (10) days of receiving the puppy to avoid over vaccination.
If your dog’s breed is prone to hip dysplasia, do not over-feed or over-exercise your dog and, regardless of breed, do not over-exercise your dog during his or her growth period.
These dogs are intended to be companion dogs
