    Default Dog Business

    If you sell a dog with an understanding that included in the sale you will be able to get a puppy off of the dog from a future breeding would you write up a simple contract? I ask only because I got the shaft in a very similar situation about 15 years ago. Need advice quick please!

    Whenever entering into a contractual relationship with regard to the sale of an animal it is always advisable to include basic language as to the terms of the agreement in a contract of some sort, at a minimum in the Bill Of Sale. Better to define future expected returns so that in the event of change of personal relationships the legal framework is in place. In my opinion.

    I would certainly write up a contract. It just clarifies what will happen for both parties and prevents hard feelings later.

    Sounds like you have answered your own question.

    A written agreement helps both parties remember the details of an agreement. But it is no guarantee it will be followed. The honest & ethical keep their word just like they will a written agreement. The dishonest & unethical won't abide by the terms of a written agreement any more than a verbal agreement unless enforced. The written agreement helps with memory & enforcement, if required.

    I don't wear black because it makes me look slim, I wear black because it hides the dog hair.

    Actually, I still live next door to her mom's old house. I haven't left yet. I'm just normal.
