Spring Valley accepts 5 to 6 non-refundable deposits per litter and reserves the right to retain puppies for breeding.
On rare occasion we may have to use a different male than originally planned due to unforeseen circumstances using a particular stud. We may decide to go with another male simply to improve a litter. Mother Nature participates in all breeding, thus the unforeseen can and does occur: small litters, non-conception, reabsorbed puppies and/or miscarriages, still born puppies, etc.
Upcoming litter arrival dates are estimations based on prior heat cycles. Actual due dates can not be determined until the dogs have been bred.
Sometimes a breeding dog becomes ill or fails to perform. We will work with you to make satisfactory arrangements if these circumstances occur.
