River Falls Goldendoodles Health Guarantee

Our Promise

All River Falls dogs live in loving homes with their families. They have been tested and certified according to recommendations by the AKC poodle club of America, GANA, Golden Doodles of North America, the AKC Golden Retriever club of America, the AKC poodle club and Premium Breeders List. We strive to keep in touch with as many of my pups as possible to offer support and collect data that will help us to continue to produce the best possible goldendoodle. All River Falls pups come with a two year health guarantee. 


General Health Guarantee

You have a 72 hour general health guarantee that your puppy has had all of his/her appropriate vaccinations and any other necessary veterinary attention. We do ask that you take your puppy to be checked by a licensed veterinarian within these 72 hours and schedule your future vaccinations. River Falls will not be responsible for any vet bills. Worms (internal parasites) are common in puppies and we recommend that a stool sample be checked by the vet at all your puppy’s check-ups. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to keep your puppy away from other dogs and public areas, especially dog parks and parks in general, until he/she is fully vaccinated as there are many diseases such as Parvo which are deadly to new puppies.

There will be no returns on any a puppy unless you have met the above criteria. If your puppy does become seriously ill within this time, please go to the vet and get a letter of diagnosis to be given to me upon the return of your puppy. No puppy has ever been returned for health or temperament issues to date.

you will be given a full refund and the opportunity to return your pup.

Our lines have been tested and cleared guaranteed! Any additional treatment will be the owners responsibility financially.


This guarantee only applies to the original purchaser of the pup. The guarantee is void if the condition was caused by injuries acquired through training, play, or other activities or, if the puppy has been neglected, malnourished, or allowed to become obese.


To qualify for a refund, your puppy’s X-rays must be confirmed by a licensed veterinarian and those X-rays also must be sent to River Falls for evaluation and confirmation of genetic disorder from our Vet as well.
