We want our buyers to be 100% happy with their new family member. With proper care (raised inside a home), diet and basic obedience training, we guarantee your dog will have a gentle disposition and sweet temperament. If you find that you must re-home a puppy/dog that you purchased from us, for any reason, please contact us first! Hampshire Hill’s offers lifetime support for all puppies sold.
We test all of our adult dogs (using Paw Print Genetics and Animal Health Genetics) to make certain that they do not carry common genetic conditions. We feed all of our dogs Purina Pro Plan dog food, because nutrition matters!
Although we have already taken our puppies to a vet for a complete physical and shots, your personal vet should evaluate the puppy to have a good “baseline” from the beginning. Therefore, to validate your health guarantee, families MUST take their new puppy to a veterinarian within 48 hours of purchase. Be certain to schedule this first vet appointment, prior to receiving your puppy. If your vet finds your puppy to be in unacceptable health condition, the buyer must notify Hampshire Hill’s within 3 days of receiving the puppy. The vet must make a statement on letterhead that the puppy is unhealthy and not suitable for purchase, and Hampshire Hill’s Standard Poodles will retake ownership of the puppy and refund in full (transportation costs/arrangements are not included).
It is necessary to protect your puppy from contagious diseases until an entire series of vaccines has been given. Your puppy shouldn’t be exposed to other puppies or taken to public places until fully protected by the entire series. At 8 weeks of age, your puppy has had only one vaccine, as is the proper vaccine protocol. Until receiving all vaccines, your puppy is NOT fully protected against deadly contagious diseases such as Parvovirus and distemper etc. Precaution also needs to be taken at your vet’s office; people take sick animals there! Do not let your puppy touch the floor at the vet’s office. We do NOT guarantee that your puppy won’t catch contagious diseases.
This health guarantee is contingent upon the owner spaying or neutering the puppy by age 12 months, feeding one of the approved brands on https://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/dog-food-reviews/dry/4-star//, and vaccinating/worming/vet care according to the proper protocol established by a licensed vet (not online ordered shots or purchased from a Tractor store). Please keep receipts of the above items to verify conditions were met. If above conditions are met, Hampshire Hill’s Standard Poodles provides a 1 year guarantee on all puppies.
ALL puppies are born with parasites and worms, and stress can also bring them out again; although our puppies receive Pyrantal worming medicine at 2, 4, 6 weeks of age, Tolturizuril for 2 days to prevent coccidiosis (at age 5 weeks), and then 5 days of Panacur at age 8 weeks of age, they may still have a few parasites that resisted treatment. Your vet should provide a routine worming or fecal test. We do NOT make any real or implied guarantee against normal puppy parasites,such as coccidiosis, giardia, viral or any bacterial infections that puppies can contract (such as ear infections or UTIs, which puppies do contract sometimes).
