Contracts and Warranties
Puppy Contracts. Presently, the price of our puppies ranges from $2200 to $2750, depending upon the breeding. We recognize that our pups are more expensive than many but we are confident that our pups, warranty and the support we provide over the pups' lifetime are worth it. These prices represent not only the quality of the sire and dam but the tremendous effort we put into researching pedigree combinations, thoroughly health testing we do on all of our dogs, raising our puppies and carefully matching each puppy with each buyer.
This price includes:
We sell three categories of puppies: breeding, performance and pet.
Sales of all Gaylan's puppies are formalized through an individualized sales contract. The details of this contract outline the care owners must be willing to provide their puppy. We do have the right of first refusal to repurchase any of our dogs whose owners can or no longer choose to keep it.
Warranty. We carefully screen all breeding stock but the ambiguity surrounding the environmental and hereditary causes of hip and elbow dysplasia, cataracts, pigmentary uveitis, SAS, epilepsy, thyroid, vWD, cancer and other diseases make a guarantee impossible. Instead, we warranty our puppies against genetic defect that limits the dog's ability to fulfill the purpose for which he was purchased. We expect our buyers to be reasonable in their expectations of us--if the puppy was purchased as a pet, faults such as cryptorchidism will never affect the dog's ability to be a happy, healthy pet.
However, if one of our dogs is hindered from his original purpose due to a genetic disease, we offer a refund of half the purchase price. Similarly, if any breeding quality puppy has a disqualifying fault under AKC standards, we will reimburse the owner half the purchase price. At the request of the owner, we also will consider offering a replacement pup with one from our next breeding at half the purchase price. We do not expect owners to return their dog, unless they chose to, and instead simply require that they provide proof of neutering.
If you would like copies of our contracts or warranty, please e-mail us using the Puppy link below, specifying whether you would like a set of documents for a pet, performance or breeding-quality puppy.
