Guarantees
NOTICE: Date Last Edited 02/16/22

MUST READ FOR ALL
 
All potential owners for a Chambray Labrador are directed to this page to read and understand our Placement Process and Guarantees.
 
By proceeding with the purchase of a Chambray Labrador , the new owners understand and agree to all the Guarantees and Stipulations set forth at this page.

We recommend the new owners make a copy of these stipulations for their records. 

 
If there are those that do not agree to the following guarantees and stipulations then by all means they are to exercise their right to obtain a
puppy or dog elsewhere.
 
We do not sell dogs or puppies, we *place* them where we feel they will thrive and in a loving family situation and contribute to the betterment of the breed.

Health Testing Information

Prior to breeding, we determine whether a dog is to be considered for the breeding program based on multiple available tests and observable results.

 

  1. DNA tests

  • are available for over 190 conditions, maladies, and diseases that affect dogs.

  • Dogs can be Affected, Carriers, or Clear.

  • By using these DNA tests to test all potential breeding program candidates, we can guarantee that none of the puppies produced & placed will be Affected.

 

   2. Radiology (X-rays)

  • There is no DNA marker for hips and elbows.

  • X-rays of the hips and elbow joints are used to determine whether a dog has the potential for the breeding program.

  • The goal of the X-rays is to determine if those joints appear to be genetically normal reduce the risk of producing genetically poor hip or elbow dysplasia in future generations. 

  • Dysplasia is a condition caused by an abnormal growth of tissue, cells, joint, or bone.

  • Many factors can affect dysplasia, such as developmental, accidents, trauma, nutrition deficiencies, over-supplementation, genetics, and other environmental conditions.

  • X-rays are sent to either the OFA or PennHip to be graded. Grades include Excellent, Good, Fair, Borderline, Mild, Moderate, or Severe. 

  • Dogs with Mild, Moderate, or Severe that can be determined to be genetically induced should never be considered for breeding. 

  • Dogs with passing conformational and functional hips/elbows, when bred together,

will produce 95% passing results with their offspring, which means that there may be some percentage that will NOT PASS OFA Certification as many factors play a part

with hip and elbow development.

Until we have DNA tests available for hips/elbows, which should result in 100% results,

we will continue to use radiology to determine which dogs will be used for breeding.

WE DO NOT PLACE OUR PUPPIES OR DOGS

IF THE NEW OWNERS ARE GOING

TO SPAY OR NEUTER!!!!!!

All the newest scientific studies more than prove that spaying and neutering

is detrimental to a dog's health with cancer rates going through the roof with dogs that have been spayed or neutered. 

 

 

ALL GUARANTEES ARE NULL AND VOID IF

DOG IS SPAYED OR NEUTERED
SPAYING & NEUTERING INCREASE CANCER & JOINT DISEASE

beyond 100%

See UC Davis Results For Spaying & Neutering!

 


 

 

Regardless of what your pet care professional tells/sells you or what the

animal radical terrorist/activist groups proclaim/propaganda, we go by what

testing has proven 1000%, it is not in the best interest of our dogs! There is no room for discussion. You have a different erroneous opinion, then stop reading as I will not place a puppy and sentence it to an early death or crippling conditions.

 

I am very adamant about the preceding and will not place one of my puppies with anyone that is dead-set, without considering the health ramification of

spaying and neutering.

*Health Warrantees

Veterinarian Examination Within 72 Hours

After Taking Possession of Puppy

 

The new owner MUST have the puppy examined by a licensed Veterinarian at his/her expense within 3 days of taking possession of puppy. If upon said examination the puppy is found to have a congenital birth defect or serious health condition, worms or parasites, it must be reported to chambraylabradors@yahoo.com from the veterinarian’s office at the time of diagnoses, with information pertaining to condition found.

 

NO TREATMENTS ARE TO BE MADE!!!

Unless there is a dire emergency that involves a "life or death situation" to the puppy or dog, no treatments are to be made until having consulted with Sandy Herzon, and then one of the following will happen as decided by Sandy Herzon/Chambray Labradors.

 

(A) conditions for the return to the breeder will be made as soon as possible without any treatment and without medical procedures performed on the said puppy. Upon return of the puppy, a full refund of the price paid for the entire Puppy Package (puppy and accompanying amenity’s package) will be returned to the new owner, plus the cost of the veterinarian’s examination not to exceed $35. Only the specified cost (up to and not exceeding $35) of the exam will be covered, No treatment, No medications, and No Procedures will be covered by the refund upon immediate return of the puppy.

 

Or

 

(B) Upon conferring with the diagnosing Vet, the breeder, V. Sandy Herzon might authorize treatment by the Vet. and take responsibility for the costs of the specified treatment that falls under the guarantee. It will be Sandy Herzon's decision, either A or B or the new owner may opt for the following C, at new owner's responsibility and the new owner accepts all costs incurred from that moment on.

 

C - the puppy may be treated by the owner at their cost, thus releasing V. Sandy Herzon of any further responsibilities.

In other words, the new owner by authorizing the vet to perform any treatments/procedures, will knowingly VOID this part of the Health Guarantee and therefore take all responsibilities for their decision from that moment forth. All subsequent treatments, medications will be the responsibility of the owner once they decide on Option C as stated above. By deciding on Option C, the new owner releases Sandy Herzon from any and all conditions that may arise.·

 

This 72 hour refund guarantee time does not cover accidents, broken bones, bites, lacerations, mauling, swallowed items or any other condition, including accidental death. Any and All accidental conditions are the responsibilities of the new owner.

 

Once the new owner's vet examines the puppy and finds it to be in perfect health, that it is free and clear of disease, illnesses, parasites....... any such occurrence that takes place after that official examination will be the responsibility and the

expense of the new owner.
