Deb's Doodles Health Guarantee

We Stand Behind our Puppies!

We stand behind our puppies with a two-year genetic health guarantee.

All puppies sold by Deb's Doodles are in the best possible health to the best of our ability and knowledge.

While our puppies are in our care, we feed them well and give them the best care possible to grow into strong and healthy pets for years to come.

Each puppy is checked by a licensed veterinarian, who determines that the puppies are ready to go live with their new owners.

Shot and Deworming records are given to our buyers at the time of pick-up or shipped with the puppy.

Puppy Guarantee

2-Year Health Guarantee

We guarantee our puppies until two years of age against any congenital defects impacting the quality of life. This is defined as a GENETIC abnormality/disorder that will eventually cause early death with a life expectancy of less than 5 years where the disease would progress making euthanasia necessary or require extensive medical care that would ultimately be beyond the cost of the Puppy. If your puppy is determined to have a congenital defect within the first two years of life, we will either replace your puppy with a puppy from a similar litter or refund the purchase price (less any shipping or veterinarian fees incurred).

We also guarantee our puppies until two years of age against moderate to severe hip dysplasia which would reduce the puppy's quality of life. The puppy must have an x-ray between 24-25 months of age by a licensed veterinarian and submitted to OFA for an official determination of hip rating. If determined to have moderate to severe dysplasia, we will either replace your puppy with a puppy from a similar litter or refund the purchase price (less any shipping or veterinarian fees incurred).

What's Not Covered

We cannot guarantee our puppies against illness or opportunistic parasites brought on by stress such as moving (from our house to yours) or shipping. We also can't guarantee that our puppies will be "worm-free", as this is an ongoing process. However, these are easily and economically treated and should be discussed with your veterinarian at your first visit.

We are not responsible if a puppy contracts a communicable disease or infection after leaving our possession. Also, this Health Guarantee does not include improper bites, hernias, any illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals or physical injury.

Caring for your new puppy

Our puppies are generally very easy to care for. Here are a few pointers that we think are important reminders of how to care for your new puppy, and are prerequisite for the health guarantee to be valid.
  • Your puppy needs to be examined by a licensed veterinarian within 3 days after going home. Find a vet that you feel comfortable with, and keep regular appointments so your vet gets to know your puppy.
  • Keep your puppy up to date on shots, worming and other preventative protocol.
  • Feed your puppy a good, well-rounded diet. Do not underfeed or overfeed you puppy. In general, follow the recommended feeding guidelines found on the bag. We recommend TLC Whole Life Pet Food, which can be ordered online for the life of your puppy. Find other top-rated pet foods on dogfoodadvisor.com. We highly recommend at least a 4-star food which should be appropriate for the age of your dog.
  • Avoid exposing your puppy to physically stressful situations, such as frequent stair climbing or standing on concrete for long periods of time during his formative years.
  • Provide adequate shelter and make sure there is always fresh clean water available.
  • Make sure your puppy has plenty of exercise on a regular basis, and whenever possible. Don't overdo it in the first few months. Puppies need lots of rest too.
