Guarantee Policy

Purchased Puppy Hip Dysplasia & Eye Guarantee

Diehard Gundogs has not knowingly bred or produced any dogs with hip or eye problems; we wish to produce and sell only pups that are free from these disorders and provide our buyers with healthy companions. We do not guarantee against any communicable diseases or non-life threatening disorders or conformation flaws.

To be covered by the hip and eye guarantee, the dog must be registered in the original owner’s name and must not have been sold. The dog must not have sired or whelped a litter.
If you suspect either retinal eye or hip problems, please follow this procedure:
1) The dog’s age must be no more than 24 months old.
2) Notify us either by phone or in writing.
3) Send us copies of X-Rays and a written diagnosis from your veterinarian. These will be forwarded to our veterinarian for confirmation.
4) Proof of spaying or neutering signed by a veterinarian must be sent to us.
5) The dog’s registration papers must be returned to us.
Any dog covered by this guarantee that is found to have retinal eye problems or hip dysplasia and that has followed the above guidelines will be given a replacement puppy out of a comparable breeding at the discretion of Diehard Gundogs within one year; provided we have a litter within that timeframe. No refunds are issued.

If you are unsatisfied with your puppy for any other reason, please call so that we can discuss your issue and a resolution.

Stud Service Guarantee

If you breed to a stud dog from Diehard Gundogs, a live litter is guaranteed. A return stud service is provided either to the original female bred OR another female owned by the same person. Another Diehard stud dog can be used at the discretion of the female's owner. No refunds are issued.

Training Guarantee

Diehard Gundogs provides training for upland bird hunting and shoot to retrieve field trials. After determining your interests and desired timeframe, we will spend ample time 4-5 days per week training your dog in an attempt to complete the level of training that was asked for. Keep in mind, each dog is different and therefore learns at a different rate and using different techniques. We will use the most beneficial methods of training for your dog’s personality. When you pick up your dog, we will demonstrate what we have taught the dog and practice with you. It is the owner’s responsibility to reinforce the commands and practice consistently at home once the dog has been picked up. We cannot guarantee a dog’s performance if you do not do your part to maintain his training. No refunds will be issued, however additional training may be provided if it is determined that the dog’s lack of performance was a result of our training program.
