Jackson’s Kennel would like to congratulate you on your agreement to purchase a Doberman from our program. We take great pride in our dogs and are very careful to prepare them for their new families. We breed for health, longevity and quality, and we ensure our dogs have vet care and are proper representations of the breed. Our contract and forms are to protect the dogs, to protect the breeder, and to protect the buyer(s). We do not tolerate bullying, abuse, slander, defaming, misleading comments about the breeder, our program, our person, and our character and reserve the right to pursue legal action to protect our reputation and to seek monetary compensation for damges. We value kindness and respect and give that to all our clients and we expect the same in return. Our contracts are non transferable; only the original buyer/adopter via our records will be acknowledged for the health guarantee. Please note the health guarantee is a voluntary service offered by the breeder and can be rescinded without notice at any time.
The health guarantee is subject to the breeder’s discretion. Jackson’s Kennel does not require a spay/neuter agreement, but does recommend you discuss it with your vet. No dog should be spayed or neutered prior to bone maturity (between 18 months and 2 years old). We request you provide vet information prior to adoption, especially in preparation for our health guarantee. We require you to have your puppy evaluated by a licensed, OFA or PennHip participating vet within 7-10 business days of the purchase date. To qualify for the health guarantee the dog must meet age appropriate weight and health marks, has not had any alterations1 done post purchase (alterations include any voluntary surgical procedure, all elective procedures, aesthetic procedure, cosmetic procedure, and non-emergency surgery or procedure), have a safe living environment and be crate trained. All dogs must be kept in good health, kept current on vetting and maintain breed appropriate weight and health marks. Please see our health guarantee for more details, terms and conditions. In the event you need to rehome2 your dog the dog is to be returned to Jackson’s Kennel or to notify Jackson’s Kennel and we will find a suitable adopter. Returned dogs will not be reimbursed their purchase price nor "bought back" by the breeder.
