Health Guarantee &
All puppies will leave Red Prairie Retrievers with a health guarantee and contract.
We offer a health guarantee because it is vital to remember as humans we are not able to control every aspect of an animal growing and developing in and out of the womb, however through our selective breeding and health testing it is our goal to be able to provide you with the healthiest puppy possible. We never want our buyers to feel like they are alone if a problem arises with their puppy. Puppies will not leave until this is signed and agreed upon.
Below are some of the following details addressed in the contract. Please note we do not offer any monetary refunds in our guarantee. Once a deposit is placed, we will assume you agree to the contract whether or not it is signed. Please see the end of the contract:
All of our puppies come with:
Vet Checked by our Veterinarian
Health Records with shot/worming info
2 Year Hip Guarantee against genetic moderate or severe hip dysplasia, grade 2 and 3 elbow dysplasia, and affected genetic diseases**
Shots & Wormed (appropriate with age)
Limited AKC Registration Application (Full may be requested for breeding rights)

Lifetime support for you and your new family member from us.
**2 Year Hip Guarantee against genetic moderate or severe hip dysplasia which cripples the dog beyond proper movement, grade 2 or grade 3 elbow dysplasia which cripples the dog beyond proper movement, and affected genetic diseases including PRA-1, PRA-2, ICH, MD, NCL, and prcd-PRA disease. Because 60% of all canine hip dysplasia is related to poor nutrition, we require proof of a 4+ star food (per Dog Food Advisor) to be fed, but we do suggest that your puppy continue with the Life's Abundance Nutritional System or a PawTree Diet for the first 26 months of his/her life because we have done adequate research and believe in the quality for long term health.
If a dog presents with the above-mentioned health conditions at or before 26 months, Buyer is to fix the Golden Retriever and keep him/her as a companion. Breeder offers a puppy at half price in replacement of the affected puppy. If buyer would like a full replacement puppy, he/she must return the original puppy. Breeder retains the right to evaluate the puppy at their vet as a second opinion prior to any replacements being made. In the case of sudden death of puppy, breeder must receive a written notice of puppy’s death from owner’s vet, along with a necropsy report indication cause of death, paid by Buyer. We also reserve the right to acquire a DNA sample and microchip scan from the puppy to determine the dog or puppy as one of our lineages.

The buyer(s) shall provide proper nutrition, vet care, shelter and exercise. The pup shall be socialized properly after all immunizations given, to include other people outside the family, other dogs, and strange places. Obedience classes are recommended before the pup is 1yr old. Also, always keep a Golden Retriever reference book on hand to refer back to, please call with any questions, we want to help you.
In regard to hereditary defects, there are never any guarantees that a dog would be free of all genetic disorder from past generations. But since we may not know if there are any potential weaknesses in a dog, we believe that the diet and lack of vitamins can exacerbate these conditions if found. Therefore, by providing the dog with quality food and supplements, we are hoping to reduce the chance of these potential weaknesses from hindering their quality of life, should this ever occur.
2 Year Genetic Guarantee: - this guarantee does not include the vet check, OFA exam, shots, worming, transportation, carrier, or other fees. This 2 Year Genetic Guarantee is for the health of your Golden Retriever, and does not cover accidental death, neglect, abuse, or injuries that your dog may sustain while being a part of your family.
