Care provided to your puppy by the BUYER, after leaving Chestnut Hill Labradoodles:
•      The BUYER agrees to maintain this puppy/dog in good health, provide routine preventative health care, including but not limited to, inoculations, internal and external parasites, and preventative medications as indicated. BUYER agrees to provide fresh water and proper quality food in the correct amounts, proper socialization, and proper amount of exercise.  BREEDER IS NOT HELD RESPONSIBLE for illness or disease that develops after over-vaccinating puppy, even if recommended by your vet. BREEDER recommends providing CORE and necessary vaccines at the optimum timing as evidenced by Titer test, and not giving more than 2 vaccines at a time. This includes rabies and other non-core vaccines such as Lyme, Lepto, Bordetlla, etc. 
•      Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES is the dog to be placed in a pet shop, animal shelter, or 
similar establishment.  If for any reason, you are unable to care for your puppy or adult dog – PLEASE contact us immediately. We will assist you in locating a new home for your puppy.
•      BUYER understands that the Australian Labradoodle is an intelligent dog that is slow to mature to its full temperament by nature. Your PUPPY will require early socialization and continued consistent training to keep your PUPPY`S mind stimulated. BREEDER strongly recommends that BUYER attend obedience classes with PUPPY and provide proper socialization opportunities for the PUPPY. For best results, all experience should be molded to be POSITIVE before 16 weeks of age. Obedience training typically begins at age 12-16 weeks and is continued until dog is sufficiently trained and socialized. Training may be completed independently or with a certified dog trainer. Should BUYER not be successful at obedience training or training of negative behaviors, BUYER agrees to seek help from a certified animal behaviorist. BREEDER shall not be held responsible for acts of puppy, which are due to BUYERS negligence or lack of proper training and socialization of puppy. 
•       Should BUYER decide to sell, relinquish or transfer PUPPY, BUYER agrees to notify BREEDER of PUPPY`S new owners details and address. BUYER agrees to screen new owners before sale, release, or transfer of PUPPY. BUYER must contact BREEDER, in which Chestnut Hill Labradoodles shall either take PUPPY back or assist BUYER in finding a suitable home for PUPPY.
•      BUYER agrees to keep PUPPY at the proper weight and fit throughout its normal growth period and does not allow PUPPY to go up and down stairs in excessive repetition until PUPPY has reached its full growth. 


•      When puppies are given their 1st vaccines, this does not mean they are immune to the diseases they have been vaccinated against.  Check with your Vet and follow up on all recommended boosters before taking your puppy to meet the public including parks, lakes, on camping trips, and so on. Take your puppy to the vet in a carrier and do not allow them to roam freely, do not allow other clients at the vet office to handle your puppy, this may seem unfriendly but it is important. Just remember they may be visiting the vet with a sick pet and may not even know yet or may not consider it to be dangerous to hold your puppy. 
•      Do not allow your puppy to roam your home unsupervised unless you have thoroughly puppy proofed against cords, plants, chemicals etc. We recommend a crate, a playpen or a gated off “puppy area” when you cannot supervise your puppy for the first few months at home.
•      Research and know the expectations of a Labradoodle coat, specifically noting the generational pairings of your puppy’s parents and what coat to expect.  Every dog will lose some hair. In fact, every mammal will have normal hair loss.  Puppies can lose their puppy coat as they transition into their adult coat; this can occur at approximately 12 weeks up to about 2 years of age and can vary from puppy to puppy.  Puppies can also “shed” hair when stressed or ill or due to allergies. Puppies should be brushed several times a week and groomed early, by 16 weeks, to prevent matting problems as the puppy coat changes into the adult coat.  Some labradoodle adult coats are prone to matting due to the curliness or being wet from outdoor activities and require more frequent brushing and grooming.  Minimal hair loss or shedding can be expected with any dog or puppy for various reasons including but not limited to diet, stress/anxiety, over-excessive brushing, or allergy. 

The BUYERS agreements will continue for the duration of this dog’s life and the BREEDER will have the right to enforce these agreements. Should BUYER choose to break any of the above portions of this agreement, the remainder of the agreement will be considered null and void. Breeder neither makes nor implies any warranties or guarantees, express or implied, other than those written in the agreement.  This document constitutes the entire agreement between the BREEDER and BUYER with respect to this sale. The BUYER’S signature below indicates that The BUYER has read, agrees and does understand all the conditions and information regarding expectations and responsibilities of both the BREEDER and BUYER, within this Chestnut Hill Labradoodles Sales Contract.
