Non-collection of dog/s

Whinney Brow reserve the right to re-home any dog not collected within 7 days of the agreed collection date unless prior agreement has been reached. (Every effort will be made to come to a reasonable arrangement prior to taking this action as a last resort.) Owners will remain liable for full fees up to such time as the dog/s have been successively re-homed or collected by the owner.



Puppy sales

A non-refundable deposit is required to secure your puppy.  If you change your mind or circumstances after this deposit is made then no refund will be given.  If you have to return your puppy/dog at any point any monies considered returnable (by Whinney Brow) will be minus the deposit paid.  If an issue is highlighted at the “vet check” before your puppy leaves Whinney Brow that is considered life altering/changing then Whinney Brow may allow you to terminate the sale and return your deposit.  Alternatively, a reduction in the purchase price may be considered by both parties.


Whinney Brow reserves the right to refuse a sale to any person they deem not suitable without explanation.



Stud dogs

A stud fee is payable once the first successful mating has occurred, a second mating will be offered at no extra cost.  If no pregnancy occurs you may return with the same bitch at its next season (no longer than 9 months later) and receive a free mating.  If no puppies are conceived then no further free matings will be offered.


Your bitch is expected to have the relevant breed standard health testing and be up to date with her annual vaccinations and Whinney Brow, and it’s representatives, reserve the right to refuse a bitch for stud.


If your bitch is to stay at Whinney Brow Kennels whilst matings are initiated you will provide your own dog food.  If, for whatever reason, no mating occurs you will pay the standard kennelling fee on collection of your bitch, if mating occurs then the stay is included in the stud fee.


Whinney Brow, and its representatives, endeavour to provide the utmost care and consideration for your bitch whilst she is in our care and will always be present at the time of mating.
