Federal Law requires that registration papers, transferred to the new owner, must be provided at no extra charge. This applies to all purebred dogs in Canada.

The Breeder Should:

  • Discuss the breed fully with you to determine if a Boxer is right for you.
  • Furnish you with a Canadian Kennel Club certificate of registration, within six months of purchase, on which is recorded the change of ownership.
  • Provide you with a certificate of vaccination showing the date and type of shots given.
  • Provide you with information on diet and feeding schedule for your pup. When and with what your pup has been wormed.
  • Furnish you with a pedigree (Family Tree) for your pup.
  • Be available to answer questions and give you support before & after the sale of the pup. Your breeder is an invaluable source of breed specific information.
  • Give you a written contract stating any guarantees that apply.
  • Furnish you with a healthy well socialized puppy.

The Buyer Should:

  • Be aware of the responsibilities of owning a dog and be prepared to take a Boxer into their home as one of the family.
  • Research the breed by reading books and speaking with breeders.
  • Avoid impulse buying and be prepared to wait for a litter from a reputable breeder.
  • Follow the advise of their breeder as to care of their Boxer.
  • Be prepared to sign a non-breeding agreement if you are purchasing a pet.
