Price & Contracts
To reserve your spot on the list, we require a $250.00 non-refundable service deposit. This pays for a service that I provide for you: updating you on puppies, sending pictures and videos, consultations, and whatever you need to find your next family member. If for some reason we are unable to provide you with a puppy that will fit you and your family, your deposit will be transferred to a future litter.
You must also fill out the adoption application.
If you have already chosen a puppy but change your mind when the puppy is 49 days old, the deposit is no longer transferable or refundable.
Puppies are chosen in order of deposits received.

The Buyer has Three (3) days from the time of receipt to have dog examined by a veterinarian. Proof of examination must be provided to Seller. This guarantee will be terminated immediately if dog is not examined within the allotted time. If dog is spayed/neutered after 12 months of age this contract is void and no guarantee given. If this dog is found to have a hereditary defect, which impacts clinically on its quality of life excluding dental work, by the age of two years, as certified by a qualified veterinarian at buyer’s expense, the seller has the right to require a second opinion from a nominated veterinarian of seller’s choosing at the seller’s expense. A warranty for Hip Dysplasia is provided for two years after the date of sale. This warranty will be terminated should the dog be allowed to become overweight or developing joints become overstressed at any point during the warranty period. If not feed PAWTREE dog food this contract is terminated. Should the dog be found to have Hip Dysplasia within the first two years, the buyer must provide the seller with proof in the form of documentation from OFA or Penn HIP. This warranty does not include luxating patellar, viral illnesses, infections, improper bites, hernias, hypoglycemia, heartworm, Guardia, or Coccidosis. It also does not include any illness due to the ingestion of foreign objects, food, chemicals, or physical injury.

Our primary objective is to breed genetically sound Bernedoodles but genetics are only part of raising a healthy dog. A large component is nutrition. The majority of dog foods on the market cannot be relied upon solely to meet your Bernedoodle's nutritional requirements. Poor nutrition can be attributed to a number of health issues. Our goal is to assure our Bernedoodles are given the best nutritional care possible. By feeding PAWTREE I know that you are giving your dog the best care possible. I know this dog food works and does wonders.
NOTE: This guarantee does not cover mistreatment of puppy, injury, accidents, poisoning, etc., dog is not overweight, underweight and has not been used in agility, running, jumping or over exercised during their growth period of 24 months during the period of guarantee. It does not cover trauma related or environmental factors that have affected the dog adversely. FifenWifeBernedoodles does not guarantee your dog’s hips against any form of dysplasia, which is attributable to nongenetic causes. This guarantee applies only to the original purchaser of this dog. The buyer must supply to the seller a veterinarian’s report indicating possible hereditary defects within seven days of making the first complaint to the seller. Their nominated veterinarian if so desired, must forward a copy of all available reports to the seller for review. The seller will review the reports and advise if a second opinion is required. If it is, the seller will nominate a second veterinarian to whom the dog should be taken for further examination. The seller will make available all results from the second opinion to the buyer at which point the following options may be available if the dog is certified to the seller’s satisfaction to have a hereditary defect clinically impacting its quality of life:
1. The seller will replace with a puppy/dog of equal value upon meeting the above requirements. It is understood that there may not be a replacement dog available at the time of requested replacement. The seller is given twenty-four months to act upon this guarantee.
Shipping: Buyer bears all costs.
Rehoming: Buyer agrees that if at any time the buyer wishes to destroy or give away the dog, the buyer will give the seller every opportunity to help in rehoming the dog, which must not be destroyed, or relinquished to a pound or shelter.
The seller cannot guarantee color, size, or temperament. These can only be estimated, while in the short time in the breeder’s possession, based on experience, and can always change or differ from this estimation and are ultimately outside of the breeder’s control.
The seller assumes no responsibilities for puppy after it leaves the premises for medical expenses, family disputes, or any other problems that you have not thought out. I do not pay veterinarian bills, medication, grooming cost, training, or transportation cost under any circumstances.
The seller will not refund money for the dog, due to the purchaser's allergies to animals, landlord's disapproval, disagreement of family, the dog is no longer desired, or for any other practical reason. The seller also claims no responsibility for any injury or illness that could be and was most likely contracted after the date of purchase. The purchaser must contact the breeder first if the dog can no longer be kept. The dog should never be brought to the shelter as it can be returned at any time to the seller (but no refund will be given for anything not related to the conditions this health guarantee covers.) The breeder must also assist in the rehoming of the dog, at any age in its life, if the owner can no longer keep it. The seller is available for any questions during the entire lifetime of the dog.
Once the puppy leaves the sellers home the buyer is responsible for all vet bills, puppy supplies, training, etc.
