What is The Utah Bernedoodles' Health Guarantee?

5 year DNA guarantee and 2 year Hip Warranty!

We guarantee our puppies will not be affected by DM, PRA, VWD, OST, or Gm2. If this dog is found to have one of the above genetic diseases, which impacts clinically on its quality of life, by the age of FIVE years, as certified by a qualified veterinarian at buyer’s expense, the seller has the right to require a second opinion from a nominated veterinarian of seller’s choosing at the seller’s expense.

We warranty hip dysplasia for 2 years after the date of birth.. This warranty will be terminated should the dog be allowed to become overweight or developing joints become overstressed at any point during the warranty period. Should the dog be found to have Hip Dysplasia within the first two years, the buyer must provide the seller with proof in the form of documentation from OFA or Penn HIP. This warranty only covers life altering conditions that require hip replacement. Utahbernedoodles does not offer a warranty or a guarantee if your dog is spayed/neutered before 12 months of age.

There is no genetic test for Hip Dysplasia. Even with 5-10 generations of OFA health tested dogs, puppies can still end up with hip dysplasia. We do everything we can to prevent this and offer options if it does happen with in the first 2 years or life.
