Question for breeders about broken agreements
« on: October 22, 2010, 01:32:03 PM »
The breeder expectations thread is interesting... thus I have a question for all breeders :smash: 
If someone bought a pup from you and you found out they did not meet up to the promises, agreements and so forth what recourse do you have, and how would you handle it?

Ideally the recourse would be spelled out in the contract - typically the breeder can repossess the dog, or is entitled to a monetary breach of contract penalty, or both.

As far as what I would do personally - well, it depends, first on the particular breach and second on why it was happening. If the dog is in danger (abuse, neglect, etc.) I'd take it back first, and ask questions later. If it was something relatively minor like a show puppy that wasn't being shown, I'd talk to the owners and find out why, and then we'd work together to find a resolution.
