(Conditions of Sale )
TEMPERAMENT and GENETIC SOUNDNESS are our top priorities. Whether you are purchasing a Great Dane for Show, Obedience, Therapy or as a Family Companion, we believe, it is most important that this new addition to your family should be of sound mind and body. It is for this reason that we believe in researching carefully and seletively breeding from bloodlines that we know will help us to achieve these goals.
As long-time breeders of Champion Show dogs, we strive to breed Danes that will be of proper conformation and movement so that they may be competitive in the Show Ring. We feel, with careful planning and selective breeding, this can be done without the sacrificing of temperament and health. The ideal Dane should posses strength, substance, display a regal appearance and a dignified but easy-going, affectionate nature.
We ensure that all our Danes, to be used for breeding, are of an affectionate and loving temperament and that they are, to the best of our knowledge, free of genetic defects and disease. There is no exact science when it comes to genetics and breeding and even the most reputable breeder cannot say, with certainty, that there will never be that one puppy that will develop health issues. That is why we offer and stand behind our written guarantee.
All 'Cheviot' puppies are CKC Registered and individually identified by either tattoo or micro chip. Prior to their placement, have received all necessary health care, age appropriate vaccines, wormed on a regular schedule and have been raised in a loving Family environment. We ensure, to the best of our ability, that they are free of any congenital or hereditary defect or disease.
'Cheviot puppy packages' include: Written health guarantee, vaccination certificate & puppy record booklet, fourteen page puppy guide (offering information concerning health, vaccines, diet, grooming, training, etc.), ear-taping kit with four page instruction guide, three week supply N-Zyme Granules (helps in boosting immune system during transition stage), nylon adjustable collar & matching lead. For peace of mind, 6 weeks complimentary health insurance.
Our devotion and dedication to the Danes that we have bred continues on throughout their lives. We are always available, to our puppy buyers, to answer any and all questions and to help deal with any concerns they may have.
