Puppy Health Warranty and New Owner Contract
At Carefree Goldendoodles, we pride ourselves in responsible breeding. Our primary goals are to provide new families with a puppy of optimal health, temperament and stature. To ensure our goals are met, we follow the guidelines set forth by Good Dog, which is a program to connect responsible dog breeders with responsible pet owners.
Health testing is a crucial part of any responsible breeding program. Prior to breeding, our adult dogs are health tested and cleared of specific genetic disorders common to the cross breed. Before puppies go to their new homes, they are health checked by a licensed veterinarian. Exam, vaccination and deworming records are sent home with new owners, so they can provide records to their veterinarian. Puppies must be examined by your veterinarian within 3-5 days of pick up, with a full health physical performed, and follow up visits scheduled for vaccination boosters.
Carefree Goldendoodles has a strict Spay/Neuter requirement for all puppies adopted from our breeding program. By signing our New Owner contract you are agreeing to Spay/Neuter your puppy, and will not use your Carefree Goldendoodle puppy as a breeding dog. Please work with your veterinarian to determine the best time to spay/neuter your pet.
Because we believe in the health of our breeding dogs, we provide a 2-year health guarantee on Carefree Goldendoodle puppies. For the lifetime of your Carefree Goldendoodle, regardless of the reason or circumstances, we will take back or help to rehome your dog if you are no longer able to care for him/her.
2-YEAR HEALTH GUARANTEE
We guarantee our puppies until two years of age against any congenital and genetic disease or condition impacting the quality of life. This is defined as a GENETIC abnormality/disorder that will eventually cause early death, with a life expectancy of less than 5 years, where the disease would progress making euthanasia necessary or require extensive medical care that would ultimately be beyond the cost of the puppy. If your puppy is determined to have a congenital or genetic disease or condition within the first two years of life, we will either replace the puppy, or refund the purchase price (less any transportation or veterinarian fees incurred by Carefree Goldendoodles). Proof of genetic abnormality/disorder is required by a licensed veterinarian and requires consultation between your veterinarian and Carefree Goldendoodles.
WHAT'S NOT COVERED:
We cannot guarantee our puppies against illness or opportunistic parasites brought on by stress such as moving (from our house to yours). We also cannot guarantee that our puppies will be "worm-free", as this is an ongoing process. However, these are easily and economically treated and should be discussed with your veterinarian at your first visit.
We are not responsible if a puppy contracts a communicable disease or infection after leaving our home. Also, this Health Guarantee does not include improper bites, hernias, any illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals or physical injury.
If for any reason, you can no longer care for your dog, please contact me immediately and I will rehome him/her. Refunds will not be given for dogs that are voluntarily returned to Carefree Goldendoodles, due to owners not being able to care for the dog any longer.
