By signature below, both parties agree to the terms set in this 6 page agreement:
We recommend Buyer feed puppy a grain free food with 25% or less protein in it until atleast 9 months of age. This helps with controlling your puppies weight gain and structural development. Letting your puppy become overweight will put unnecessary stress on its joints and could possible create joint problems in the future.
Dysplasia can be caused by environmental factors. Meaning; through repeated trauma to undeveloped joints and growth plates in a growing puppy early onset of dysplasia can be caused as a result of injury. It is very important to prevent injury to your puppy from rough play and jumping out of vehicles and onto and off of furniture. Running down stairs is not healthy for your pups elbows, shoulders or spine either.
DO NOT have your puppy retrieve toys or run on vinyl, tile wood or ceramic floors where their feet can slide out from under them. This can cause injury to the ligaments and joints in your puppy’s legs.
We HIGHLY recommend tat your new puppy is not placed on the ground in public places before the immune system is strong enough, typically around 18 + weeks. We also HIGHLY recommend that you avoid dog parks and doggy day cares for the life of your dog. As fun as these places may seem the are just a large breeding ground for disease and illness. There are many diseases that cannot be vaccinated for such as CHV which can kill newborn puppies whose mothers contracted the disease during pregnancy. CHV shows no symptoms of infection in adult dogs.
We also strongly advise that you crate train your puppy and crate puppy when not supervised. Bulldogs are known to chew and eat stuff, crating them will help avoid obstruction surgery and possibly save its life. We also recommend that you keep rawhide, rope toys, and stuffed animals away from your new puppy. These toys are obstruction hazards.
We highly recommend obedience training and exercise everyday. We can’t stress enough how important these two things are.
If you have any questions or concerns about your puppy’s development or anything else please just ask and we will be more than happy to discuss concerns and how to best address them. GatorHead Bullies LLC will provide a lifetime support system for you and your new addition(s)
