Why a payback system? As a serious hobby breeder Crossfire Retrievers wants to encourage new owners to work with their puppies, get health clearances and encourage owners to spay/ neuter if not planning to carefully breed the dog.
The payback reimbursements help establish a name for Crossfire Retrievers, establishing that the pups are trainable and healthy/ free of genetic defects. It also helps Crossfire Retrievers gain information about each breeding. Spay/neutering encourages potential puppy buyers to consider the temperament over the sex of the dog and helps protect Crossfire Retrievers breeding program.
