Sounds interesting.....never heard this option yet. It could be a trend coming...
So, will that extra $500.00 go into a fund for problems down the line with puppies? An extra $500.00 per puppy adds up quickly in an account and I think the breeder is hoping there are no problems with the puppies who have protection for 5 years, because if no problems, more cash for the breeders. Just thinking out loud....... I am not a breeder.
And...........On the other hand.....Why is this breeder offering this option? Were there problems with his/her puppies in the past? Or, is this breeder protecting themselves from future hazzles?
I would say, if you are going to buy a puppy for $1200 without protection, I would make sure the parents did not have any problems for sure. Ask for soap pictures of the legs.
Have you visited the breeder's home yet? Met the parents of the pup?
What will give you peace of mind? How well do you trust this breeder? Will they stand behind their guarantee? You have to do what is right for you, you alone can make this decision.
