Puppy Is a Pet, Show or Working Dog

All puppies are sold as pets, show or working dogs. The blood-lines of puppies supplied by UK Dobermans are of a standard far exceeding that which is available from any other supplier, this fact is evidenced by the number and consistency of show wins and work titles obtained by UK Dobermans' breeding partners. As a consequence, UK Dobermans and its associated breeding partners wish to maintain the integrity and exclusivity of the blood-line and therefore the purchase of puppies for the purpose of breeding is prohibited unless prior written consent is obtained from UK Dobermans. It is entirely at the discretion of UK Dobermans as to whether or not this consent is granted. The Customer agrees to spay or neuter the puppy at an appropriate age, as determined in consultation with Customer's veterinarian. The Customer further agrees to care for the puppy in a humane and responsible manner, including, but not limited to providing him or her with clean and adequate shelter, food, water and veterinary care. The Customer agrees that the puppy shall reside inside his or her home, shall not be allowed to roam freely, and shall wear a collar with identification tags and any required license tags at all times. The customer agrees to have the puppy's microchip details registered into their own name and address as soon as reasonably practical.

Additional Photographs and Videos

UK Dobermans will at their absolute discretion when requested by the Customer, provide additional photographs and/or videos of the puppy during the period that falls between the reservation and/or deposit payment being made and the collection date.

Reservation Fee, Deposits and Cancellation

Deposits and reservation fees can be paid in cash, via Paypal or by Bank Transfer once agreement in principle has been made to purchase a puppy/dog. There are no refunds on Deposits or Reservation Fees. Failure of the buyer to complete their purchase would subject UK Dobermans to lost opportunities to sell the puppy to some other buyer and retention of the Deposit or Reservation Fee is to compensate seller for their possible loss. The Deposit or Reservation Fee signifies the intent on the part of the Customer to complete the purchase of their puppy. Should UK Dobermans be unable to fulfil their obligation i.e. the puppy falls ill or is injured before it goes to its new home, then the Deposit and/or Reservation Fee will be refunded or can be carried over onto the next available litter. Please also note: all reservations are after UK Dobermans private selection should UK Dobermans wish to in rare cases, make a selection for itself. The Reservation Fee for puppies supplied by UK Dobermans is agreed in advance of the purchase between UK Dobermans and the Customer. In the event the Customer cancels the purchase; the Customer understands and agrees that an administrative fee of up to £200.00 may be retained by UK Dobermans. The Customer and UK Dobermans agree that this amount is a fair and equitable amount for damages as it would be impossible to compute the exact extent of damages sustained by UK Dobermans as a result of such cancellation.
