I will breed only for the purpose of “improving
the quality of the breed."
I will provide information on the
characteristics and properties of all dogs/puppies in my breeding program.
I will consult with the NAAC Breeder's Board when planning each litter, selecting a stud dog
and bitch to be mated based on their temperaments, conformation and standards for the breed.
I will use the Breed Founder and the NAAC Quality Inspector and/or Breed specialists to help
me decide which dogs bred together would produce quality pups according to our breed's standards.I will respect each buyer's constitutional rights to have and enjoy their property as they
I will breed Alsatians
which are temperamentally and structurally sound by using the Breeders Club and its Board for the diagnoises of my litters
and I will have them all tested as required.
I will use the
scoring numbers to decide which pups I should bred with and I will always discuss such matters with the Breeders Board.
I will Be familiar with the Breed Standards and breed
only those dogs and bitches which most closely conform to it.
I do so promise to keep well informed in the field of
genetics and work to eliminate hereditary defects from the breed.
I will refrain from further use of any Alsatian for
breeding if the dog or bitch has produced any offspring with serious inherited defects detrimental to an animal's well being
(physically or mentally), and has produced like results with a different mating partner and I will discuss this matter with
the Breeders Board.
I will never breed to an unregistered Alsatian
I will NOT wholesale litters of Alsatians, sell to Brokers
or Pet Shops, provide any animal for prize or raffle purposes; nor use a Stud Dog in like manner.
I will keep all puppies with the litter until at least
7 or 8 weeks of age.
I will maintain a safe, clean and sanitary facility for all the dogs under my care.
I will keep accurate records and retain those records for a minimum of ten years. These records
- Stud service contracts.
- All litter information of puppies for sale
- All dogs/puppies sold.
- Health records.
At time of sale:
- a properly executed registration certificate together with full written
disclosure of the name of the registry the pup was and/or is registered with and its written standards and requirements (or
if puppy is not to be registered a written statement to that effect). Registration materials may be withheld if a written
statement is provided to the new owner of when, and under what conditions, they will be provided (eg. Until the time of spay
or neuter by the new owner as verified by a veterinarian, or if a written certification identifying the exact date of birth
and the registration numbers of the sire and dam is provided instead).
- A written, three-generation pedigree.
- Health record including inoculation, parasite control record and health
- Basic diet and care information.
- The period during which a licensed veterinarian, at the buyer's expense
may examine the pup or dog.
I will also:
Sell or place each Alsatian with the contemplated final owner,
therefore the seller should ascertain that the prospective buyer has the knowledge and facilities to properly care for a growing
or grown dog.
As a condition of sale or placement, the breeder shall retain
the right of first refusal should the purchaser ever decide to transfer ownership or resell the dog, therefore giving the
seller every opportunity to help the purchaser find a new home for the dog if necessary.
I will make sure that all dogs sold (puppy or adult) shall have
a signed agreement between the seller and purchaser that the animal shall be examined by a Veterinarian of the purchaser's
choice (and paid for by that party) within 72 hours of purchase or delivery.
If the dog is deemed unhealthy or possessing an inherited defect
which would impair the use for which it was purchased (pet, show or breeding program) the seller will refund the full purchase
price upon the return of the dog with a Veterinarian certified documentation of the condition.
The dog will be returned at the purchaser's expense.
I also agree to be a resource for buyers of puppies or older dogs that I have sold for
the life of the dog.
