it is being purchased with Full registration.
-If this dog is being purchased for show purposes, Von Wolff Kennel does not guarantee the
dog will be successful in its showring efforts. Too many external factors beyond our control
contribute to a dogs career in the showring for a guarantee to be made. If the Dachshund
is adopted as a show prospect, we have determined it to be a potential good example of the
Breed Standard and therefore a "showable" dog. Von Wolff Kennel assumes no
responsibility for the Dachshunds' results in the showring.
-If the Dachshund is purchased with breeding in mind, or as part of a Breeding Program,
Von Wolff Kennel does not guarantee the results of any produced offspring.The selection
of breeding partners, genetics of each dog and care of the bitch during whelping vary widely
and is outside the control of Von Wolff Kennel. Reasonable assumptions can be made as
to coat,color,patterns and conformation using DNA, parentage research and pedigrees, but
this does not constitute any guarantee of breeding outcome.
-Should this Dachshund be used for any breeding purposes other than what has been
agreed to by VWK and NewO in this agreement, NewO shall be held in breach of
contract which will be construed as damaging to VWK and legal recourse will be taken
in the amount of five thousand dollars ($5,000.00)in addition to all court costs,lawyer fees
and other associated fees.
- The proper upbringing of the puppy are the responsibility of NewO.
-Under no circumstances is VWK to be held responsible for the dog's behavior.
-Von Wolff Kennel strives to produce FIRST and FOREMOST, Dachshunds of proper
temperament. This attitude is described in the AKC/UKC Breed Standard.
Any lack of boldness, tendency to nip, or excessive barking can be environmental or a
learned behavior, therefore not a responsibility of VWK.
-Von Wolff Kennel advises and recommends that all puppies be enrolled in obedience
training classes or taught basic commands regarding behavior by NewO. Failure to do
so may result in an unruly,destructive or unsocial dog.Von Wolff Kennel assumes no
responsibility for this outcome.
-VWK has made every effort to socialize,with other animals and people, the said Dachshund
and cannot control what happens once it leaves our premises.
-In many cases, leash training,housebreaking and basic commands are already being
taught to your puppy before purchase. It is NewO's responsibility to continue the puppys'
education to maximize its' best behavior and performance as an adult.
