All our puppies are vet checked several times, fecal checked several times, microchipped, wormed, and current on vaccinations at time of sale appropriate to its age. We vaccinate for DHPP(Distemper/Hepatitis/Parainfluenza/Parvo} every 3 weeks until 16 weeks. Rabies is given at 14-16 weeks of age, and Bordetella is given at 9 weeks of age. Puppies are preventatively wormed at 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 weeks. We require at least 2 “Negative” stool samples before a puppy is considered “Negative” for intestinal parasites.
Puppies sold as conformation/performance/companion quality are guaranteed for 3 years against life threatening or crippling hereditary disease and/or temperament.
Puppies are socialized from 3-4 weeks of age and exposed to many types of people and children. They are also already well travelled, crate trained, and potty training has been started.
Puppies sold as conformation quality are sold with the understanding that, at the time of evaluation, they possess the qualities necessary to compete in conformation. It is up to the buyer to complete its championship unless otherwise stated in the signed contract. If a puppy develops a disqualifying fault, verified by myself, and a 3rd party in the poodle field, then the buyer has the option of keeping the puppy at companion cost on a limited registration or returning the puppy for either a replacement show puppy from a future litter, or a full refund. At Horizon Poodles we know not every dog is a “show” dog, and not every “show” dog is perfect, but we want only the best of the best to represent us in the show ring. When we sell one of our kids as show quality, that is exactly what they are. We don’t believe in quantity, we believe in quality – of both mind and body.
Puppies sold for performance/companion are sold only on a spay/neuter contract. These puppies are just as healthy and are from the same litters as conformation puppies, but may not possess all of the strict qualities and requirements necessary for the conformation ring. They still may wonderful pets!!
Refund Policy: We offer 2 weeks for a full refund, after that we offer 50% up to 1 month. After 1 month we will still willingly take the puppy back but there is no refund unless there is a life threatening or crippling hereditary disease and/or temperament issue.
At ANYTIME if you are unable to keep the puppy and/or adult for personal reasons, it may be returned to us, but you will forfeit the purchase price or a portion of the purchase price as stated in the signed contract. As responsible breeders we do not want any of our dogs to contribute to the overcrowding of shelters. They are always welcome home.
Purchase price or replacement puppy are only offered if there is documented proof from a veterinarian of a hereditary or temperament issue. As breeder, I have the right to request a second opinion from a third party veterinarian, and my own.
