The Canadian Kennel Club
Policy Statement -- Purchaser Protection (Effective March 1995)

The Canadian Kennel Club feels that a purchaser of a purebred dog in Canada is entitled to
expect that they are purchasing a healthy dog, both physically and mentally from a reputable
breeder. Canadian Kennel Club members are obligated by the objectives of the Club as
contained in the Club By-laws to encourage, guide and advance the interests of purebred dogs
and their responsible owners and breeders in Canada.

Purchasers are advised to ask the seller for a written bill of sale indicating that the dog being
purchased is indeed purebred, the breed of the dog, the sellerís and purchaserís information,
that the dog has been officially identified and that registration papers are included in the price.
Under the Animal Pedigree Act, a seller must provide registration papers within six (6) months
from the date of sale.

Reputable sellers will provide a detailed written guarantee of the present and future genetic
health of the dog and will not hesitate to uphold their guarantees.

The Canadian Kennel Club publishes a guide to purchasing a purebred puppy and encourages
all prospective owners to understand the information contained in the guide before they
purchase a purebred dog.From: http://www.ckc.ca/en/portals/0/pdf/policy%20and%20procedures/Chptr%2012%20Legislative%20Policy%20Statements.pdf
