​                         HEALTH GUARANTEE

​     What you are required to do:

     There is no better feeling than to deliver a cute furry bundle of joy to our families.  We want to
     keep you and your puppy happy by asking you to take a few precautionary measures to ensure
     your puppy is healthy and will live a long and happy life.  Here is what you should do:

        * Take your puppy to the vet within 3 business days.  After the exam please be sure to send
           us a copy of the exam results or medical record . Not taking your puppy 
           to the vet within 3 days will void the Guarantee.  The exam must be done by a licensed vet.
           The puppy will come with up to date shots , please make sure you do not give an additional 
            vaccines to your puppy within the first 10 (ten) days.  Over vaccination is cause to void warranty.
            Please retain health record given by breeder and provide to Vet.

        *  You will need to provide proof of the daily healthcare and maintenance of your puppy dog,
            which would include vaccinations and exams.

        *  Your pup will arrive with appropriate shots and deworming. It is the new owners responsibility
            to continue proper deworming and to take your puppy for exams  as recommended by the vet.

   ***requests to return dog to seller for a refund must be made within the 3 day time period and only
       be requested should the dog prove to have life threatening disease . 


       is provided against life altering congenital disease. This includes severe Hip Dysplasia 
       which hampers a dogs movement, natural gait and requires surgery. 
      Warranty will terminate should the dog be allowed to become overweight or developing joints be 
      over stressed at any point during the warranty period. If any hip problems are noted. 
      Have your vet submit your dogs X-ray to the Orthopedic Foundation for animals. (OFA). 
      We will need a copy of their rating and evaluation. We reserve the right to confirm the results before a 
      replacement puppy is provided.  ALSO, please retain your bone broth receipts.  Providing 
      bone broth in the first year is highly recommended. This will ensure your pup has enough raw
      materials on board to build out all those legs and bone :) 

      If the dog dies within the warranty period , the Buyer will pay to have it autopsied to ascertain reason.
      If reason is congenital Seller will replace the pup.
      It is agreed that a replacement puppy shall be the method of delivery /fulfillment and  will be agreed upon
      by both parties and will be of same value as pup replaced. 
      If puppy comes under new or  temp ownership this warranty/health agreement is void.
      If litigation is deemed necessary it is agreed to be heard in Lewis County WA

      The buyer agrees to maintain this dog in good health, provide routine  health care including 
      and not limited to vaccinations, parasite prevention,,,nutrition and medication.
      Veterinary records will be provided to breeder before any replacement pup. .
      If  preventative care has not been provided,  warranty is voided.
        Vaccine reactions are noted lately with Leptosporosis and Rabies . 
        Titer before vaccinating.  Over-vaccination is causing auto-immune responses 
        We KNOW you want your pup healthy.. 
       We have reports that Heart Guard( heart worm preventative)  has caused death in adolescents.
       Please wait as long as possible to start this preventative measure..Ivermectin crosses the blood brain
       barrier to cause encephalitis when given to pups.
       Leptosporosis vaccine has made it into the blog for Ridgebacks vaccination REACTIONS most recently.

       Training is mandatory and we very much like Cesar Milan ...MASTERING LEADERSHIP.
       This series is at least 10 years worth of puppy kindergarten ..It is priceless to know how to react in advance.
       CesarsWay.com        Also we would like you to know that trainers offer in house overnight boarding /training
       are not a good idea for this breed. Ridgebacks have the reputation of not forgetting.  They are extremely 
       sensitive .  On the other hand when you have paid an obedience school thousands of dollars....They can be
       overly aggressive with the animals.  Please DO NOT use this type of training where you relinquish your pup                         overnight.  This will void any possibility of obtaining a future pup.

        The breeder strongly recommends permanent identification by tattoo or microchip.
        Breeder gives permission to be listed as an alternate contact for microchip or tattoo registration.


     Nutrition is directly related to health.  
     With misleading labels and recalls... preservatives and indigestible content..you cannot be too
     careful with Nutrition choices. 
     AND most important,  is that your pups growth over the first year is EXPONENTIAL!  
     Growing BRAIN and BONE..   your pups food, must be nutrition based...

      Our puppies eat Life's Abundance brand pet kibble.

        **  formulated by a DVM and made in small batches.  

        **   Your pets health increases exponentially when you feed Life's Abundance  AND Nu-Vet 
      brand vitamin. 
      Nu-Vet vitamins are given daily to our puppies. 
      I  consider this supplement .... a cheap health insurance. The product is Liver based, PADDLE DRIED
      and the best available supplement that supports the immune system.  

     Bone broth is mandatory for the first year. Providing this nutrient will guarantee  your pup has sufficient 
     cartilaginous materials to build all those joints and bone proficiently. Make your own!! ask me how ...

     If your pet is following our nutritional recommendations of food and vitamins, titer before vaccines.
     We would like to lead you to believe that your pup will have the highest life expectancy in years.  
     Nutrition is directly related to health.  As long as we get that right ,  Life IS Good.
