It is very important in pedigree research that this be included.

AKC Limited Registration papers are offered on most puppies, unless otherwise agreed upon. At times we sell our puppies with NO papers. We actually cut out the Limited box numbers as well as the Pin # so you are unable to change the form from Limited to Full Registration.   Full Registration papers only go to breeders with proof of being an AKC breeder for 2 years, show homes or prior agreed arrangement to have full registration. AKC papers can be sent by US Postal Service, through social media such as sending photo to a cell phone or emailed- hard copies do not need to be provided.  You are able to register them online.

Aimee Cakebread transfers in fee simple all rights privileges and responsibilities associated with the
ownership of the dog to the Buyer once Aimee puts the animals on the plane/or is picked up.

1. All puppies and dogs are sold as companion animals.
Our puppies and dogs are not sold as breeding prospects or show prospects. They are sold as pets only!
If you choose to breed that is totally your choice as some times puppies/dogs are sold on Full Registrations via the breeder’s written approval so you can have the choice at a later date, but that is not a guarantee that they can or will reproduce.
Puppies/dogs are sold as pets, we do not guarantee if this puppy/dog will be able to produce and what color he/she will produce or if reproductive organs will work properly or if the puppy/dog will be able to stay in tack or be able to breed.
We do not guarantee that the puppy/dog maybe sterile. We do not guarantee that this dog will not need to be spayed/neutered.
Nor guarantee that puppy/dog will be healthy enough to breed.  Nor do we guarantee that the puppies resulting from breeding will not have genetic problems.  Some are sold on Full Registrations because the new owners will like the ability to show. Even though they are sold on Full Registration so the new owners can show, I no way shape or form am stating this puppy or dog is show worthy nor do we guarantee you that the puppy will win or place in any competition/event or finish with any title, ribbons and or be able to be in any competition. We do not guarantee that the puppy or dog has what it takes to be a show puppy/dog including temperament, structure, bite, tail set, proper tail docking nor do give warranty as to its fitness/health for breeding, show ability, etc. We do not guarantee that this puppy or dog is a fit to show or is able to be shown.
2. The puppy is defined to be an American Cocker Spaniel puppy/dog.
3. The puppy/dog is able to be registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC). Also according to the Procedure code through AKC under a chapter breeders do have up to 6 months to supply a Dog Registration Application or otherwise known as AKC Papers on the said dog. The breeder agrees that if AKC papers were granted the breeder will get them to you by that time frame. Usually the papers go with the puppy/dog, if not, a little while afterwards. It does depending on multiple things such as AKC and where they are at during the year.
It does seem to be a little wait during holidays as a lot of litters are planned during that time.
4. Breeder hereby sells and transfers breeder’s interest in the puppy /dog in “AS IS” condition.  All expressed/implied warranties are excluded. There are no warranties extended and buyer agrees the puppy is sold “AS IS.”  Buyer further recognizes the breeder makes no warranties regarding the condition of the puppy.  I will provide a Health Certificate less than 10 days prior to shipping if you need shipping of the puppy/dog at buyers expense.
I release Aimee Cakebread / Cakebread Cockers and any other family members from any and all responsibilities related to illness, injury or damage that may.
5. If shipping is required, the breeder is not responsible if the puppy/dog is injured, lost, stolen, killed, or occurs health problems.
The breeder does not assume any liability for injury of the said puppy/dog after the date of shipping/meeting.
The buyer is responsible for all shipping charges.
6. We do not guarantee your dog may not have tinged pee stained/yellow coat. Some puppies and dogs are learning to lift their leg and sometimes tend to pee on others, usually that is the case of the boys peeing on the girls, marking their girl. Because most of cockers are parti colors some do have yellow staining or tingeing this happens. Some dogs and puppies also walk through their poop and others poop/pee, also eat it, roll in it, and lay in it. NO MATTER HOW FAST YOU PICK IT UP! Once it gets on a white coat it is hard to get out, either cutting it out or letting it grow back. We do not guarantee this dog/puppy will have a perfect haircut. We are not professional groomers. Some of our dogs including those puppies over 6 months of age leave with a 10 blade cut which is a cut down, sometimes it looks like a chop job. It is also much easier to keep adult dogs not showing in this type of coat then it is to keep them all grown out which is much cleaner and easy to keep. Hair does grow back! By signing this agreement you understand that you lose the right to be offensive or comment on the type of hair cut given to the dog/puppy.
7. We will never refund any shipping charges, gas, lodging, time or loss wages for any reason.
8. Breeder is not responsible for ANY charges incurred by buyer including vet bills once the puppy/dog leaves the breeders possession.

12. We cannot guarantee temperament of any dog or puppy. We can only tell you how they have acted in the past and how they acted with us. The new owners will also have to be very consistent at training to make this pet as their ideal dog. At times the puppy/dogs are training you because you do not realize what you are doing is not necessarily good but believe it is so. I do recommend any person getting a puppy over 12 weeks of age a rabies vaccination incase for whatever reason that the puppy/dog might bite you will have yourself and the puppy/dog covered. Older puppies and dogs at stressful times may bite or nip at people – it is a protective instinct. It usually takes anywhere from a couple days, a week, or even longer to bond with your new animal, showing the new pet that pet is o.k. and you are good people. It has nothing to do with temperament it has to do with adjustment.
13. We do not guarantee any dog or puppy that we are not the breeder on, this may include dogs that we bought for possible breeding, pet, or show. They are sold “As Is”.
14. We also cannot guarantee correct bites on any dog/puppy. Puppies especially as since puppies mouths change so much one day you can have a perfect bite and the next day it can be off. Puppies do not get their perm. teeth until they are many months old. We do not guarantee bites with show prospects or past show dogs or any adult or puppy.
15. Our Right to Refuse Sale- We have the right to refuse sale to any puppies/dogs or provide services to any person at any time for an reason even if you have placed a deposit on a puppy/dog or payment in full. Since agreeing to this – there will no fee’s or money owed because our right to refuse sale- such as emotional loss, distress, missing out on another puppy, loss of time, etc. those or just examples. Some of the reason for this are to include but not limited to.
* Puppy didn’t clear health certificate, do not think puppy is ready to go, health issues, attachment
issues, decided we want to keep.
* Including finding information that was not disclosed prior to the sale or during the sale process, like you say you have two dogs but you have 10 etc.
For any reason we decided to not sell you a puppy/dog your deposit or payment in full if it is our fault will be returned to you for reasons stated above.  If you bought a puppy, once the whole litter is sold we will refund you the money or sooner.
If you purchased an adult, the money will be returned to you within 12 weeks from our written notice that we will be returning your money.
16. Our Cocker breed is full of health issues and with that said not all Cockers are perfect medically either it be a puppy/older dog you may get from us. If something medically is wrong with your puppy/dog we ask that you not bash our name Cakebread Cockers or Aimee Cakebread. By signing this you understand that you are not to go to public areas such as but not limited to Forums, Blogs, Facebook, Myspace, Youtube, Websites or any other public areas where you can speak your mind about the issue you may have with your pet including contacting other breeders or contacting others who own dogs from our kennel.
17. Although we do not require that you spay or neuter we highly suggest that you look into your options and consult a licensed vet in your area. In some cases many organizations offer programs that offset that cost!
18. If for ANY reason, natural disaster, divorce, death, allergies, medically you are unable to care for your puppy/dog or is no longer desired by the buyer, contact the breeder immediately. As breeder by signing this contract or agreeing to this contract I get right of first refusal which prevents the dog to be resold without my approval or knowledge. . If I decided to take the puppy/dog back YOU MUST include all paperwork such as all vet records, rabies, if the dog has fixed documents for that need to be provided, if the dog was sold with Full AKC registration the dog must returned unfixed and AKC papers will have to be given to Aimee and AKC papers signed over so Aimee can put the puppy/dog in her name. If Aimee agrees to take back the animal, it will be at no charge to Aimee, no puppy back, nothing.
Failure to do so may result in legal action to reclaim possession of the said animal and the buyer agrees to be held responsible for any and all cost incurred by Aimee to do so. By agreeing to this contract you agree not to sell, trade or transfer the dog without written consent from the seller. If you ask for written notice the puppy/dog needs prior approval, meaning the Aimee will contact the person in which your thinking of placing the pet with and make sure the puppy/dog will be well taken care of. The breeder has the right to refuse the written request. If you ask for written notice the puppy/dog needs prior approval, meaning Aimee will contact the person in which you are thinking of placing the pet with.   Aimee does get first right of refusal and Aimee will not buy the puppy/dog back. The buyer is responsible for all shipping charges to get the puppy/dog back in Aimees’ possession. If I do find that you have sold, traded or transferred the puppy/dog without a written notice and prior approval there will be a fee/fine assessed to you for the amount of 1,000.00 any and all attorney fees will be the responsibility of the buyer. By no means do we want our puppies/dogs to end up in the pound, shelter or rescue.
19. The Buyer will either have to have the puppy/dog shipped by an airline approved by the Breeder or the Buyer will meet Breeder at an agreed location. We will not allow transportation of our puppies/dogs by providers such as Commercial Ground Transporters or any Third Party including other breeders. Either way, will be at the expense of the Buyer.
20. Breeder also does not guarantee against stress-induced coccidia or giardia, which can be caused by stress, changing food or water supply, among other causes.
21. By signing this contract you are giving permission to Cakebread Cockers to use any photographs that we took from birth to the time they go home and any photos that you or your family have taken, we are able to use them in way we see fit. Examples are placing them on our website or print ads.
