any other family members, associates or associations,
affiliations, business entities or other pursuits managed
by Andrew Coffelt.
POLICIES are posted online and made available to the public.
Just as we all have a responsibility to read the label
on any in-store product we purchase we all also have a
responsibility to know and understand the fundamental
business policies of any party we willingly enter into
business with. By doing business with CBRK
you AUTOMATICALLY ACCEPT these CBRK
POLICIES as the full extent of your business agreement
with CBRK. Your signature
or affirmative statement is not required. WE
DO NOT USE CONTRACTS. No verbal or written communication
with CBRK shall be interpreted
as an exception, addition or change to these published

Should any court of law find any portion of these CBRK

PROHIBITED ACTIVITY NOTICE: ALL
LABORATORY ANIMAL USE IS ILLEGAL.
If you are a scientific laboratory seeking dogs for ANY
FORM of research, or a freelance, contract, part-time
or full-time representative or supplier of the same, contacting
CBRK regarding purchase
of a "pet" constitutes FRAUD, and exposes you/your
client to heavy liability.
a.) All CBRK
dogs are registered animals, with controlled bloodlines,
having been bred for the purpose of human companionship,
and/or working, service or therapy dogs.
b.) No laboratory
has permission to obtain any animal CBRK
owns, or has control of.
6. LIMITED LIABILITY:
NO LIABILITY. Dogs bite. ANY/ALL DOGS can
bite inappropriately regardless of socialization, training,
breed or bloodline. Dogs urinate on things, chew things,
dig holes and perform all manner of mischief on occasion,
regardless of their socialization, training, breed
or bloodline. YOU
ARE THE PARTY LAWFULLY AND EXCLUSIVELY RESPONSIBLE FOR
CONTROLLING YOUR DOG AT ALL TIMES. YOU ARE THE PARTY EXCLUSIVELY
LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGE YOUR DOG PERFORMS.
CBRK provides quality dogs and
training of dogs, but a dog is not a machine, it is an
animal. Animals make imperfect behavioral decisions and
YOU are the party soley responsible for any/all resultant
damage of any behavior performed by any dog you own.
WARRANTY & FITNESS OF USE:
NO WARRANTY HAS BEEN EXPRESSED OR
IMPLIED. The quality of CBRK's
dogs and training services are far above industry standard.
CBRK provides professional dog
training services and quality dogs. HOWEVER, a dog is
a living thing and any living thing may have unknown flaws.
CBRK is not responsible for
that just as a farmer is not responsible if one tomato
is more sweet or more sour than another tomato. CBRK
dogs and training for dogs are "as-is" products/services.
Any party* selling or training
animals that suggests differently about their own animals
or training services is misleading you.
you are not "getting less" with CBRK
because we reject all warranty claims. You are simply
being told the truth that most other breeders/trainers
do not tell you. When you see the words "warranty"
or "guarantee" regarding anything to do with
a living animal courts have found that to be unenforceable;
i.e., it's a marketing gimick.
8. REFUND POLICY:
IS PROMISED. The money we receive for an
animal covers the expense we have already incurred in
caring for that animal. The money we receive for professional
training services covers a block of our scheduled time.
All deposits are non-refundable. All payments for dogs
are non-refundable. All payments for dog training are
non-refundable. Obviously if you have paid in advance
for a training session which CBRK
must then cancel, a full refund will be provided.
Obviously if you make deposit on a dog which CBRK
can then not deliver for some reason, a full refund
will be provided. However, when CBRK
chooses to refund money it is
exclusively by our own descretion and is limited
to the dollar amount spent.
9. AT WILL BUSINESS:
We reserve the right to not do business with you. We want
our dogs in solid, responsible, forever homes. If we have
concerns that you may not provide this we will not provide
you a dog. We want every instance of our dog training
services to be successful. If we do not believe this is
possible for your dog (or for you as the owner/handler
of the dog), we will not provide or may discontinue dog
