hear from people looking to purchase a standard poodle, that "We
just want a pet, but we want a healthy puppy from healthy parents
with a good temperament." Each "Barbican" puppy is produced
by a specific breeding with the intention to better the breed.
Some, but not all puppies in our litters are evaluated as potential
"show dogs". That doesn't mean that the "others" are any less
attractive or valuable. Show dog breeders take their breeding
programs seriously. It takes a lot of time, energy, thought and
money to breed dogs well. It is truly a labor of love and one
that does not end when a puppy is sold, but one that continues
when the puppy moves on to its new family.
Barbican puppy is guaranteed against genetic or congenital problems
which would cause it not to be a good pet for a period of 5 years.
Further, if you have this heartbreak (since these are little living
things not manufactured objects), you will have your choice of
either: a replacement puppy when one is available, or your purchase
price refunded. Responsible breeders are prepared to stand behind
the puppies they produce both financially, and with help and advice
about their family of dogs. We want and expect you to stay in
touch with us throughout the lifetime of your pet.
