By putting down a deposit on a puppy, the buyer understands that they are COMMITTING to buy this puppy, and that this deposit is therefore NON-REFUNDABLE.
When you decide on a Breed you should keep a few things in mind. Berner Facts:
“Small fenced yards should be viewed as a place of convenience and safety but not as a place for adequate exercise for this moderately active breed. Plan a minimum of 30 minutes of moderately active exercise daily. A well-mannered dog is a pleasure and the owner’s responsibility. Basic training is a necessity for all dogs and especially for large breeds such as the Bernese. A puppy kindergarten/socialization class between four and six months of age is recommended, followed by a basic obedience program before the dog reaches one. Positive training methods are recommended for this breed.”
