What does our guarantee mean?
Our health guarantee means that we have invested allot of time in raising quality puppies, I won't get into all the work required for health testing, hours of genetic research, pedigree research, hours of e-mail, paperwork and phone calls, hours of training and grooming dogs, socializing puppies and cleaning kennels, sore backs and aching muscles just to name a few things we do to make sure each puppy we produce is top quality.
What this also means is that you are assured we put only the healthiest lines and dogs into our breeding program and are very confident that our pups will have no problems for their lifetime, otherwise we would be replacing all the time. So you can be assured you will get a healthy happy pet for a lifetime. Most breeders guarantee for 1 year (or not at all) but what they don't tell you is that most problems will not show up till after 2 years and at that point you are on your own as the guarantee has expired. So not only is a pup from us covered under these guarantees but you are also have peace of mind that you should not encounter any problems.
