Proof of a preexisting ailment or condition that requires minor treatment and will not alter or shorten the dog’s life will not be reason for Seller to reimburse Buyer for the expenses associated with medications treating that ailment or condition.

Buyer is responsible for appropriate training of puppy to correctly teach acceptable behaviors, and is responsible for proper socialization of puppy. Buyer agrees to provide obedience training to puppy no later than 16 weeks of age, and continue with training as long as necessary to establish a solid foundation for a well socialized puppy. Training may be done independently or through professional trainers.
