[QUOTE=kwhit;1842967]Are there any breeders that ever stipulate in their contracts that even pet puppies be health tested? I had Chance's elbow x-rayed when he was 2.5 years old and at the time went ahead and did his other elbow and also his hips. Are breeders ever curious as to how their pet puppies would test? I would have no issue if I ever bought a puppy with this in it's contract. Just wondering if it's ever done and if it's felt that this would hinder puppy buyers.[/QUOTE
Actually, the breeder I got my Raider from did stipulate in his purchase contract that I do all his clearances at the appropriate times and had me sign it saying I would. And I did comply with it, I felt lucky to have been chosen as his owner and I was happy to do it. She also offered a rebate when certain other conditions had been met such as titles and also because I met all the conditions in the contract changed his limited registration to a full. Which didn't matter because he was neutered at 4 anyway. I had no problem what so ever signing the contract and agreeing to all the different requirements.
