In the event of such occurrences or unexpected natural deaths, we will not be held liable financially or otherwise.

De-sexing helps ensure a happy and healthy pack. De-sexing your dog brings untold benefits such as improving behavior – preventing roaming, aggression, marking, humping, dominance and biting. Also de-sexed dogs live longer and healthier lives – preventing cancer, and unwanted pregnancies etc. We strongly recommend your dog is de-sexed at six to eight months, we will do our best to prevent unwanted pregnancies but cannot be held responsible if you choose to wait longer to have your dog de-sexed and they become pregnant.
