Contract/Guarantee

 

At Trail’s End Labradoodles (T.E.L.), we do extensive genetic testing, as required by the ALAA, including hips, elbows and eyes. That is why we are able to stand behind our labradoodle puppies with this guarantee.

1. T.E.L. guarantees that at the time of delivery, the puppy is healthy and does not have any known pre-existing health condition that would cause lasting problems; it has received age appropriate wormings and shots (worming at 4 & 6 weeks, and 1st 5 way shot at 6.5 weeks). Your vet will want to schedule the puppy’s shot and worming schedule from there. Possible mistreatment of a puppy can cause it to become ill quickly, therefore, this guarantee is limited to three days from the time of transfer.

a. If there is a pre-existing illness confirmed by a licensed veterinarian within three days of the time the buyer takes possession of the puppy, T.E.L. will reimburse up to $200 in related vet costs. Receipts and documentation of the illness from the veterinarian must be provided to T.E.L. before reimbursement can be paid.

b. Puppies do not have fully developed immune systems, and do not receive all their shots before 12-16 weeks of age, so please be extra careful to prevent exposing your puppy to K9 diseases when it is young, (such as dog parks and locations that may lend to other unknown dog interaction).

2. At T.E.L., we are very confident about the genetic health of our puppies. We offer a money back guarantee that your puppy will be free of hereditary defects including: hip, PRA, eyes, elbows, VonWillderbrands, which impact clinically on its quality of life by the age of two years. Any suspected genetic defect must be confirmed by a licensed veterinarian of T.E.L.’s choosing at the expense of the buyer. If the defect is confirmed, the cost of this examination will be reimbursed, up to $300.This guarantee is non-transferable and does not apply if the dog is re-homed or transferred to an owner other than the buyer.

a. All veterinarians must follow the following procedures during the initial examination when rendering an opinion regarding hereditary defects in the dog:

  • Notification: The buyer must supply T.E.L. with copies of all relevant veterinary reports indicating any possible hereditary defects within seven days of the first communication with T.E.L. regarding the defect. These copies become the property of T.E.L. and will not be returned.

b. T.E.L. will review the veterinary reports and advise if a second opinion is required. If it is, T.E.L. will nominate a second veterinarian to whom the dog should be taken for further examination. T.E.L. reserves the right to forward all veterinary reports, x-rays, or other test results to any veterinarian or other party of T.E.L. choosing. Additional veterinary costs related to a second opinion at the request of T.E.L. will be paid by T.E.L.

c. If a genetic defect (noted above in sec.2), that has significant clinical effect on the dog’s quality of life is not confirmed by T.E.L.’s veterinarian, all veterinary costs that have incurred will be paid by the buyer.

d. If a genetic defect that has a significant clinical effect on the dog’s quality of life is confirmed and there is no evidence of poor health due to abuse or neglect, (such as strenuous repetitive exercise before age of 16 months), T.E.L. offers, at the discretion of the buyer, either:

  • Buyer returns the dog to T.E.L. for a full refund of the purchase price less any reimbursed veterinary costs. Buyer is responsible for all associated shipping costs. The dog then becomes property of T.E.L.     or
  • Buyer keeps the dog and T.E.L. refunds 50% of the purchase price, or up to $1000 whichever is less, less any reimbursed veterinary costs.

If the above is not met, no refund will be issued.

3. BASIC CARE AGREEMENT
