Puppy Contract



Your puppy will come with a 27 month genetic hip and elbow guarantee, dewclaws removed, de-worming, up to date shots, vet examined, micro chipped, and AKC Full Rgistration.
Our deposits secure the picking order of the specific litter you have chosen. Your picking order will be categorized by sex and pup color. 
Should your picking order exceed the number of puppies whelped, you can either be placed on a waiting list for the next available litter, or request your deposit be returned.
Please note: Field Trial, Hunt Test and Gun Dog homes have priority. We will offer a minimum of pick 1-4 for males, and pick 1-4 for females.
Bold Bay Retrievers guarantees your pup will have a hip rating of fair, good or excellent as well as an elbows rating of normal. Hips/elbows must be x-rayed by a veterinarian according to OFA guidelines and the films submitted to the OFA. Female radiographs must not be taken pre or post 30 days of her heat cycle. For information on OFA please visit their website at
       Guarantee requirements:
  • Your puppy must be registered within 30 days of the puppy turning 8 weeks old.
  • Your test and results must be completed and submitted prior to the age of 27 months.
  • You must feed your puppy Purina Pro Plan Puppy Focus Chicken or Salmon for a minimum of 1 year.  
  • The dog cannot be bred before 27 months of age.
  • Verification of a vet visit within 24-48 business hours of taking your pup home.
  • In the event OFA results require implementation of the guarantee the following verification and/or documentation will need to be provided:
                 o   Veterinarian verification the dog is, or was not obese or otherwise improperly fed. Nor signs or evidence of injury or trauma.
                 o   If the dog is not being returned to Bold Bay Retrievers, the dog must be spayed or neutered at the owners expense, and proof of the procedure must be provided to Bold Bay Retrievers. 
The Bold Bay Retriever guarantee policy covers a refund of the purchase price of the puppy. Any and all other expenses, including but not limited to, veterinarian fees, testing fees, medical expenses or transportation are not covered by the guarantee nor eligible for refund. All guarantee requirements must be met.
Although it is not mandated, Bold Bay Retrievers believes it is a respectable practice to recognize the breeder when selecting the official AKC registered name by including the breeders’ company name. Should you use “Bold Bay” in the official naming of your pup, we offer our genuine gratitude and our warmest “Thank You” for the acknowledgement.
