Buyer, at its own expense, must have the puppy/dog examined by a licensed veterinarian within 72 hours of the Buyer receiving the puppy/dog, or a longer period of time with Breeder’s prior written consent, if Buyer notifies Breeder that Buyer is unable to obtain an examination  of receiving the puppy/dog. If, within the Examination Period, a licensed veterinarian finds the puppy/dog to be unhealthy or unfit for sale, the puppy/dog may be returned to Breeder for a full refund of the Purchase Price. The veterinarian must provide a written statement deeming the puppy/dog “unfit for purchase”, which must be sent to Breeder within 48 hours of the veterinary examination. The foregoing guarantee expressly excludes (x) any health issues caused by Buyer’s ill-treatment, abuse or neglect, any health issues that result from the puppy/dog’s transportation from Breeder to Buyer and all minor illnesses and health issues, including upper respiratory infections, allergic reactions, stress colitis/diarrhea, internal or external parasites or contagious viruses (including canine parvovirus), UTI's, vaginitis or umbilical hernias.

Breeder will be given the opportunity to take the puppy/dog to a licensed veterinarian of Breeder’s choice for examination. 


    1. Returns/Refunds.  If it is determined by a licensed veterinarian that the puppy/dog was “unfit for purchase” or has a genetic disorder that is identified within the warranty periods described above, the Buyer may keep the puppy/dog and receive reimbursement for any veterinary expenses related to the illness provided that such reimbursements will not exceed the Purchase Price amount. 


    1. No Other Warranties. No other warranties or guarantees, expressed or implied, are made by Breeder, and the puppy/dog is sold and delivered in an “as is” condition, except as expressly and specifically set forth herein.
  1. Buyer’s Obligations.  Buyer agrees to the following:


    1. Proper Care. Buyer will provide good and proper care of the puppy/dog. Such care includes providing adequate housing and protection from the elements, a safe (preferably fenced) exercise area, and proper and sufficient nutrition. Buyer will provide proper veterinary care throughout the puppy/dog’s lifetime, including but not limited to, routine vaccinations and/or Vaccine Titre to maintain the puppy/dog’s immunity to common canine diseases. Buyer agrees to keep the dog well-groomed.
    2.  Grooming. The Pembroke Welsh Corgi requires a full bath, blow out and line combing every 6 to 8 weeks to maintain a healthy coat. Shaving down a Pembroke Welsh Corgi is considered abuse and could result in confiscation of the said dog. Corgis are double coated and the coat will be permanently damaged by shaving them down. Their double coat does protect them from both heat in the summer months and cold in the winter months and will change naturally for each change in season. 
    3. Buyer agrees to keep the nails of the puppy trimmed and short. Ideally trimmed or professional nail clippers every 7 to 10 days to keep the nails at a healthy length. Long nails inhibit proper movement and can cause structural and joint issues as they age. 
    4. Buyer agrees to keep the teeth of the puppy clean. Periodontal disease can cause serious health issues for our canine companions. The best is regular brushing with an enzyme canine toothpaste and toothbrush. 
    5. Buyer agrees to safely confine the dog by using a traditional fence, restraining the dog by using a leash and collar/ or harness with proper prevention whenever outside of the buyer's home or yard.
    6. Buyer agrees that the Puppy is NOT to be left solely in a backyard or kennel and will be allowed to spend quality time in the home with family members. The puppy is sold with the understanding it was to go to substantial selected parties and the buyer AVOWS that the puppy shall become a member of the family. 
    7. The puppy should be safely kept in a kennel of appropriate size (not shared with any other dogs/animals) or pen while you and your family members are away from the home. This is to insure the puppies safety while you are unable to directly supervise them. This can change as the puppy becomes old enough and you can trust that they are safe.
    8. Buyer agrees to attend a minimum of TWO basic training training classes, each lasting a minium of six weeks in length, prior to the puppy's first birthday. Breeder recommends puppy kindergarten, basic manners or obedience. Buyer agrees to attend classes which only train using science-based trainers or "positive reinforcement" trainers who use reinforcement, science based training only. "Balanced" trainers are NOT possitve reinforcement-based trainers. 
    1. Veterinary Care. Buyer will also provide the following veterinary care: (i) routine vaccinations and/or Titers to prevent common infectious diseases; (ii) routine treatment for internal and external parasites; and (iii) annual examination by a licensed veterinarian.

Buyer agrees neither the puppy/dog, nor any offspring of the puppy/dog, shall be used for purposes of vivisection or research.

    1. Restrictions on Transfer. If, at any time, Buyer is unable to keep or care for the puppy/dog (including upon Buyer’s death or incapacity), at Breeder’s sole election, the puppy shall be (a) returned to Breeder together with duly executed documentation transferring Buyer’s ownership interest in the puppy/dog to Breeder or (b) Re-home by Buyer with Breeder’s prior written approval (such as a close family member or friend that knows and cares for the puppy/dog), in each case without any refunds or payments due to Buyer. If, following receipt,  Breeder decides to rehoused the puppy/dog, Breeder may elect to refund Buyer a portion of the original Purchase Price after deducting applicable maintenance, training, veterinary and other costs. Such refund amount shall be determined by Breeder in its sole discretion.
