Spay/Neutering: If the puppy is spayed or neutered prior to maturity, this guarantee is voided.

4. Temperament Guarantees
Socialization and Training: Our puppies are raised underfoot, socialized and extensively handled by adults AND children, and exposed to variety of conditions. We start puppies with ENS (Early Neurological Stimulation) at 3 days of age, and continue through day 16. This is standard with every litter, and puppies are further socialized with a "puppy culture" type protocol, focusing on communication, habituation, and enrichment, to help build an emotionally stable dog. Puppies are evaluated using the VOLHARD METHOD at 7 weeks of age, to ensure suitable placement with the intended family! To ensure your puppy’s temperament remains as sound as the day it leaves our home, continue with training! Herding breeds are very intelligent dogs with working drives. Responsible owners channel this intelligence and drive in the proper direction with adequate love, attention, and training. We strongly suggest the buyer to take their new puppy to obedience classes to learn proper handling techniques, once fully vaccinated! We cannot guarantee against environmental temperament problems, resulting from abuse, neglect, or failure to acquire appropriate training for the dog. (Buyers initials______)

Temperament Testing: If this Agreement is entered into prior to temperament testing, and the Puppy fails to have a suitable temperament for the Buyer at temperament testing at 49 days, Buyer shall have the right to choose a different Puppy from the litter, if available, wait for another litter, OR receive a refund of the deposit. (Buyers initials______)
