~Welcome to Indianland Mountian Dogs~
- If you are chosen by Indianland to become an owner of Bernese Mountian Dog, please remember a non-refundable deposit is required to put you on the waiting list. If there are not enough puppies available, then you will be moved to the top of the next litter list available. All checks or money orders are to be made out to either Valerie Haverfield or Sherri Nogales.
All of our companion dogs are sold with a spay/neuter contract
. We do not sell dogs to be bred by pet owners. AKC registrations will be sent to the buyer after written proof of the spay/neuter is sent to Indianland by a veterinarian by 10 months of the age of the dog
. Any spay/neuter proof sent later than the specified time could result in a penalty fee through AKC. If any dog is registered after the dog is 1 year of age, a penalty fee is required by AKC ,along with the registration fee. Indianland also requires hips and elbows to be x-rayed and sent to the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals (OFA- www.offa.org
) for evaluation between 12mo and 3years of age.
- Indianland chooses which dog goes to which home.By spending several hours each day with our dogs, Indianland knows all the dogs' behaviors and attitudes and we try to get to know all the potential puppy owners' needs and wants. Therefore, Indianland will place each dog into whichever homes Indianland deems the best for that dog and family.
When a litter is finally whelped, Indianland will notify all who have put down a deposit and let them know which week the puppies will be going to their new homes. All potential owners should block that week out so scheduling of pick up times is not a problem. If a potential owner asks Indianland to keep the dog until a later date, there will be an additional $25 per day charge, payable in full at the time of pick up.
Sometimes the issue of shipping comes up. Even though many breeders are willing to ship their dogs, Indianland will not ship our dogs under any circumstances! If you must ship your dog, you are responsible for all the arrangements and costs, plus getting the dog to the means of transport set up by the owner. Indianland does not tranport dogs. Potential owners living outside the Pacific Northwest will have to come to Indianland by whatever means necessary to pick up their dogs.
Placing a potential show dog with someone is a decision Indianland does not take lightly. We do not place potential show dogs with people we do not know. We reserve the right to tell a person 'No', even if there has been discussion as to the possibility of owning a potential show dog. As to placing a potential show dog with an established breeder, each situation is handled individually, and again, we reserve the right to say 'No'.
Last, but not least, sometimes Indianland runs into situations where it is in the best interest of both parties to terminate any verbal or written agreement to sell a dog. If Indianland deems it necessary to terminate any agreement, Indianland will refund the original deposit.
This list is subject to change without notice and is not a binding agreement between any potential owner and Indianland Mountain Dogs. Please visit our website: www.indianlandmtndogs.com
