How to train your dachshund puppy/dog

(Print Version)

We send each of our puppies home with their medical records, AKC papers,  a puppy packet which includes their own blanket, packet of food and instructions for feeding and the care of the new puppy.

AKC registration papers will be given to the buyer upon completion of payment.

To the best of our knowledge, the dog is in good health, vaccinated and de-wormed at time of sale but Do Not guarantee final adult size, conformation or fertility.

There is a $300.00 NONREFUNDABLE deposit which is part of the purchase price.

Buyer must have the above dog examined by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of taking possession of the dog.  If the dog is diagnosed with a life threatening genetic disease, the buyer, with written documentation from a second licensed veterinarian, may return the dog to the breeder.  A replacement dog of equal value will be given when one becomes available.

This contract becomes null and void if the ownership of the dog changes.

If the buyer can no longer provide the care and attention the dog needs, or the dog is confiscated by the authorities, the dog must be returned to the breeder, and all monies forfeited.

We can offer no further guarantee than the one stated within this contract once the care of the dog is not in our control and the buyer has taken possession of the dog.

Common canine parasites such as fleas, ticks, worms, mites, giardia and coccidian, etc. are not covered under the above health guarantee warranty.

Please follow the advice of your own personal veterinarian after taking possession of your dog/puppy.  If the buyer decides NOT to take the above dog/puppy to a licensed  veterinarian within the 72 hour period then the entire health portion of this contract becomes null and void.

Buyer assumes full responsibility for the above dog’s health, training, temperament and appearance upon possession. Under no circumstances are the breeders to be held responsible for the above dog, its health (other than the above stated) or its behavior after it leaves the breeders property.

If the above dog/puppy is being sold with AKC limited registration, it means that no puppies from this dog can be registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC).

It is highly recommended that the buyer have the dog spayed or neutered after the female has reached the age of one or  before her second heat.  And the male neutered after he is one year of age.  Because of the dachshund’s long back structure, it is strongly advised that you do not teach the dog to jump up or down from high places, as this could cause undue strain or injury to the dachshunds back. Please keep the dog healthy and NOT overweight as this too can cause undue strain or injury to the dogs back.

Neutering a male eliminates the possibility of testicular tumors and efficiently reduces the chance of prostate problems.   Neutering decreases the chance of peri-anal tumors and hernias that are in older, unneutered males.  They are less likely to escape a yard and find a female in heat.  It reduces the chance of them being hit by cars, getting into fights or lost.  Neutered males are less aggressive and less likely to mark in the house.

Females spayed before their second estrous cycle, reduces her chance of mammary tumors, ovarian cancer and uterine infection.  A spayed female eliminates the neighborhood stray males from coming over or through your fence to breed with her.

Giving birth to a litter can be dangerous to your pet.  If they give birth when you are not home and a puppy gets stuck and she cannot get it out, you could have dead dogs.  She will be a better companion and less aggressive.

Buyer(s) acknowledge they have read and agree to ALL the terms stated in the contract above.
