Doberman Pinscher Genetic Guarantee 2017-06-27T20:01:40+00:00

Doberman Palace offers the Doberman Pinscher genetic guarantee, 1 year, on the health of your puppy. We are proud of the puppies we produce. However, we do understand with the Doberman Pinscher breed you have inevitable health risk. Which all breeders wish we could say were not part of our breed.

We believe that our relationship with you is just beginning when you receive your puppy. While we would love to imagine that our puppies would never have any problems, unfortunately, there are certain things that are out of our control. General care, genetics, food & nutrition, and exercise are some factors that a puppy’s health is dependent on.

Puppies are current on vaccinations and de-worming when they leave us to go to their new homes. Finally, to ensure that your puppy is a healthy one, we ask you to take your puppy to your veterinarian within 4 days of receiving her/him. You are responsible for any vet expenses.

4 days guarantee is given if the puppy has any type of intestinal worms.*

4 days guarantee is given against the following conditions, as they are not genetic and/or life threatening. Parvovirus, Corona, Distemper, upper respiratory infections, Bordetella, Bronchiseptica, Parainfluenza, Mycoplasma, and Demoicosis*

For the above condition, you will have to contact us as soon as possible before any decision is made.

2 days guarantee is given against the following parasites, such as any form of lice, mites, fleas or ticks.*

* For the above conditions, we will only pay you the treatment.

Umbilical Hernias:

Doberman Palace is not responsible for any future surgeries such as Hernias. Some puppies have Umbilical Hernias. We will not have small Umbilical Cord Hernias removed as advised by our vet. Because these Hernias usually go away on their own. Additionally, the stress of surgery could do more harm than help in these situations.

Genetic Guarantee:

Doberman Palace offers a year genetic guarantee. The first year of a puppy’s life beginning from their date of birth. Below is what it covers:

  • If your puppy is diagnosed within one year after their birth as having a genetic disorder that affects the health of your puppy negatively, you have 3 options:
    1. keep the puppy and we will return the cost of the puppy (so it will help you pay the treatment for the puppy),
    2. buyer may keep the puppy and we will give you another puppy at the same cost,
    3. return the puppy and we will gladly give you another puppy at the same cost.
  • Or if your puppy passes away within one year after their birth from a genetic problem, we will give you another puppy of equal value.
  • For all three options above:
    • The customer is responsible for transportation costs to and from Doberman Palace
    • A licensed veterinarian will need to certify the cause of death or genetic problem.
    • Doberman Palace is not responsible for any and all veterinarian expenses accumulated on returned or replaced pet.
  • However, for these above options to be valid you must provide us with updated recent pictures (the picture has to show face and body) and pictures when they were with us, Doberman Palace. Also, the vet must have in their records the pup’s microchip that we gave the pup.
  • Doberman Palace has the right to ask for a 2nd opinion in which the buyer must pay any and all veterinarian expenses.
  • This process will take a while since we, Doberman Palace, will research the genetic issue, talk to our vets, talk to your vet, & have our vets talk to yours.
