Sure about that?

Because I know a handful that do They stand behind the dogs they sell, I admire them for that, and enjoy handling for them.

Why do you think they couldn't?

There are some health conditions that, no, a breeder wouldn't be responsible for. So let me rephrase:

I wouldn't except anything less that a lifetime guarantee against congenital and hereditary conditions.

Sophie what do you consider to be a genetic problem that should be covered in a lifetime guarantee?
Just curious

As a breeder, what do you think should be included (for your breed) and excluded?

Redirecting the question is not an answer. I am truelly curious as to what kinds of genetic problems you want a breeder to guarantee for life. I am not avoiding your question as I will answer after you have posted yours.

I think that would be a long list to name all congenital and hereditary conditions. Where would you like me to start?

Your turn?

I would like to see the answer too . I know as a breeder who did eye/hip/heart etc. before breeding , I couldn't guarantee these wouldn't show up . My contracts did say I would take any pup back that didn't vet check. If something came up at ages 5 to 10 , where would one draw the line ?? I don't think anyone could state a lifetime guarantee.

To me, a guarantee doesn't mean that the dog will be perfectly healthy and no conditions would ever show up - to me it means if it DID happen, the breeder would take responsibility (not always taking the dog back, either).

Different views on this I suppose.

I would say that it depends upon the condition. I guarantee my pups easily for a lifetime against Collie Eye Anomaly and PRA, for instance.
