Health Guarantee, TLC Goldendoodles San Diego CA
Proper nutrition plays a multi-faceted role in your puppy's health, both now and as an adult dog. We suggest that you purchase a great quality dog food that lists meat as the first ingredient and does not contain by-products and is designed for large breed dogs. An excellent example of this is the Pure Balance brand at Walmart. If you are using a different brand, it is important to blend the previous type and new type, lessening the previous type more each day, to ensure that your puppy doesn't get diarrhea. It is also necessary to ensure that you don't overfeed your puppy/adult dog, nor give it a high-fat/high protein content food which leads to obesity. Obesity can lead to growth spurts in young pups that put a strain on the developing joints and lead to hip dysplasia.
Because your puppy is still a baby, it should receive age-appropriate exercise. They should be allowed to play or stop at will. They should not be encouraged to walk or run long distances or for long periods of time. Excessive leash walking, for example, can cause repetitive stress injuries to their developing joints and muscles and lead to hip dysplasia. It is very important to not let children play with the puppy unsupervised. Little children commonly accidentally drop puppies. Also, puppies have sharp teeth and are teething and may accidentally hurt children. Also, always supervise other pets with the puppy to watch for Alpha behaviors in other dogs that can injure your new puppy. Do not take the puppy out in public until 16 weeks of age and until it has received all its shots. We do not cover illnesses that your puppy can get from such outings. Diseases such as parvovirus can be life threatening to your new puppy. It is extremely contagious and can be found anywhere other dogs and their owners have been.
We are confident the new owner wants only what's best for the puppy and dog and that a nice sized yard will be available for daily exercise. It is not mentally healthy for a dog to stay in a small yard, kennel or cable/rope day after day. This is physically unhealthy too. Those types of living conditions will cause the dog to become unhappy and may develop bad habits and emotional stress such as chewing its paws, etc. By agreeing to this contract you are assuring us that you will be providing a wonderful place for the dog to romp and play every day.
When you bring your puppy home, it is very important that you introduce him/her to as many experiences as possible, especially before its 13th week. Sounds, sights, car rides, vet offices, people with hats, tall people, children, people carrying objects of odd sizes/shapes, bathing, blow drying, nail clipping, ear cleaning, walking surfaces, playing with other dogs and puppies, etc. Anything it experiences during its first 12 weeks will be considered "normal" for the rest of its life. Around 6-9 months the puppy will be going through its next phase when new experiences may be unsettling for your puppy, so extra attentiveness during that time is helpful to reassure your puppy that everything is fine.
We've bathed your puppy at least once and used a blow drier to dry him/her. It is important that you clean the inside of the puppy's ears, being careful to not let water get into the ears which can cause ear infections. Use only cotton balls and rubbing alcohol to wipe them clean.
We've had fun beginning the process of socialization training and it's important that you keep it up. Help your puppy feel safe and comfortable with each new experience and complete this training, and have fun!
In the Purchase Agreement you confirm that you understand that the appearance/fur type/personality/size of your dog cannot be predicted
nor guaranteed by the seller. Although goldendoodles are known for being hypo allergenic, we cannot guarantee it.
Our puppies do not come with breeding rights and are meant to be a pet only, unless an additional fee of $1500.00 per puppy is paid upon approval.
Your new puppy has been given its first set of regular vaccines, raised with quality dog food, and given lots of tender loving care from the moment of birth to ensure healthy socialization and confidence.
We guarantee the dog to be free of any serious genetic/hereditary defects that may seriously affect the life and health of your dog for 1 year. We require you take your puppy to your own personal veterinarian within the first ten days of bringing him/her home to confirm the good health of your new puppy. If the veterinarian discovers a genetic or hereditary defect that will seriously alter the life and health of your new puppy, we will gladly refund according to your rights (see CA law section below). Any concerns about joints MUST be confirmed by OFA or Penn Hip to be refunded. Any veterinarian costs not associated with a health claim are the responsibility of the buyer.
California Law Governing The Sale Of Dogs
Every breeder that sells a dog shall provide the purchaser at the time of the sale, and a prospective purchaser upon request, with a written notice of rights.
A copy of the written notice of rights shall be signed by the purchaser acknowledging that he or she has reviewed the notice.
The sale of dogs is subject to consumer protection regulation. In the event that a California licensed veterinarian states in writing that your dog is unfit for purchase because it became ill due to an illness or disease that existed within 15 days following delivery to you, or within 1 year in the case of congenital or hereditary condition, you may choose one of the following:
- Return your dog and receive a refund of the purchase price, plus sales tax and receive reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian up to the cost of the dog plus sales tax.
- Return your dog and receive a dog of your choice of equivalent value, providing a replacement dog is available, and receive reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian fees up to the cost of the dog plus sales tax.
- Keep the dog and receive reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian fees up to 150% of the original purchase price of the dog plus sales tax on the original purchase price of the dog.
In the event your dog dies, you may receive a refund for the purchase price of the dog, plus sales tax, or a replacement dog of your choice,
of equivalent value, and reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian fees for the diagnosis and treatment of the dog, if a veterinarian, licensed in this state,
states in writing that the dog has died due to an illness or disease that existed within 15 days after the purchaser obtained physical possession
of the dog after the sale by a dog breeder, or states that the dog has died due to a congenital or hereditory condition that was diagnosed by the
veterinarian within one year after the purchaser obtained physical possession of the dog after the sale by a dog breeder. These fees may not exceed
the purchase price of the dog, plus sales tax.
In order to exercise these rights, you must notify the dog breeder as quickly as possible but no later than five days after learning from your veterinarian that a problem exists. You must tell the dog breeder about the problem and give the dog breeder the name and telephone number of the veterinarian providing the diagnosis.
If you are making a claim, you must also present to the dog breeder a written veterinary statement, in a form prescribed by law, that the animal is unfit for purchase and an itemized statement of all veterinary fees related to the claim. This information must be presented to the dog breeder no later than five days after you have received the written statement from the veterinarian.
In the event that the dog breeder wishes to contest the statement or the veterinarian's bill, the dog breeder may request that you produce the dog for examination by a licensed veterinarian of the dog breeder's choice. The dog breeder shal pay the cost of this examination.
In the event of death, the deceased dog need not be returned to the dog breeder if you submit a statement issued by a licensed veterinarian stating the cause of death.
If the parties cannot resolve the claim within 10 business days following the receipt of the veterinarian statement or the examination by the dog breeder's veterinarian, whichever event occurs later, you may file an action in a court of competent jurisdiction to resolve the dispute. If a party acts in bad faith, the other party may collect reasonable attorney fees. If the dog breeder does not contest the matter, the dog breeder must make the refund or reimbursement no later than 10 business days after receiving the veterinary certification.
This statement is a summary of key provisions of the consumer remedies available. California law also provides safeguards to protect dog breeders from abuse. If you have questions, obtain a copy of the complete relevant statutes.
This notice shall be contained in a separate document. The written notice shall be in 10 point type. The notice shall be signed by the purchaser acknowledging that he or she has reviewed the notice. The dog breeder shall permit persons to review the written notice upon request.
