Warranty & Payback Information

Warranty

All of our puppies are warrantied to 26 months of age. This allows time for OFA hip and elbow certifications, which are typically performed at 24 months of age. FLODEN'S must be listed as the prefix of your pup's AKC registered name, and the dog must be owned by the original buyer and not changed owners.

Within 3 business days of purchasing, you can return your pup or Kindergarten pup for a full refund of the purchase price. Due to the cost of rehoming and advertising, we do not offer reimbursement after 3 business days. Buyer is responsible for all costs of returning the puppy. We encourage you to visit your veterinarian for an exam during this time.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Within 26 months of your pup's age, if there is a genetic health problem such as elbow or hip dysplasia, cardiac or eye problems (common parasites excluded) verified by a licensed veterinarian through OFA or CERF with your pup precluding it to be nonfunctional or unbreedable, there are two courses of options:

1. Buyer opts to return the dog or put the dog to sleep - The dog must be returned to us in otherwise good health or put to sleep by your veterinarian, and a letter from the veterinarian stating they have done so, must be sent to us. The dog's registration certificate must be returned to us signing ownership back. The entire current purchase price of any dog covered by this warranty may be applied to a puppy from any FLODEN litter of your choice for a replacement pup. If buyer does not wish to own another Floden dog, they may elect the cashback option of up to but not exceeding the original purchase price of the pup.

2. Buyer opts to keep the dog - We require a licensed veterinarian's written proof of spaying or neutering. The dog's registration certificate must be returned, signing ownership back to us. Following this procedure, you are entitled to another FLODEN puppy at half the current purchase price. If buyer does not wish to own another Floden dog, they may elect the cashback option of up to but not exceeding half the original purchase price of the pup.

Seller does not pay veterinary fees, or any other associated costs such as shipping, OFA or CERF fees, etc.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At any time, you may return your puppy to us if you find you are unable to care for your dog. We do not want our pups to wind up in shelters and would seek to rehome your pup. Ownership of the pup would need to be signed back over to Floden Farm at that time. Please consider taking this dog breed match-up quiz before purchasing a golden retriever puppy from Floden Farm. Ideally, we want our pups to be placed in their "forever homes" from the beginning.

Paybacks

Floden Farm offers an incredible payback/reimbursement program for various health certifications and AKC/UKC titles. The maximum payback amount on all title, health certifications and spay/neuter reimbursements is up to 50% of the original purchase price of your pup. FLODEN'S must be listed as the prefix of your pup's AKC registered name, and the dog must be owned by the original buyer and not changed owners.

Why a payback system? As a serious hobby breeder, Floden Farm has found the best way to encourage new puppy owners to work with their puppies, get the necessary health clearances, and encourage owners who do not plan to carefully breed their dogs to get their dogs spayed or neutered is through a payback program offering cash rewards for new puppy owners doing the right thing.

Paybacks for titles help Floden Farm establish their name for assessing the trainability of their breeder dogs' progency. Paybacks for health clearances help Floden Farm gain useful information about their breedings. Paybacks for spay/neuter agreements encourage potential puppy buyers to consider the temperament over the sex of the dog and helps protect Floden Farm's breeding program. Floden Farm offers the following paybacks to its purebred puppy owners:
