How to write a puppy seller contract
When selling or buying a puppy, always use a contract to protect your interests. (puppy image by Waseem Ghattas from

Since disagreements can arise between puppy buyers and puppy sellers, it is a good idea to have a written contract, in addition to a bill of sale, for all puppy sales. The puppy breeder, or seller, is typically the party that provides the contract at a puppy sale. A puppy purchase contract or agreement is meant to cover the terms of the sale, as well as list what is actually being sold. When both parties sign the puppy sales contract, it means that they each agree to the terms of the sale as listed on the contract.

  1. 1

    List the name and address of both the buyer and the seller at the top of the contract. Also include contact information, either a phone number or e-mail address, for each.

  2. 2

    Give a complete description of the dog. This includes the breed, name, colour, sex, place of birth, if it has been spayed or neutered, registration number, breeder name and address. Also include the price being paid for the puppy.

  3. 3

    Include a section that states the conditions of the sale and the health guarantee. For wording, you can view a sample contract from an actual breeder on the Puppy Dog Web website. A different sales agreement sample can also be viewed on the French Bulldog Puppies website.

  4. 4

    Leave space at the bottom for both the buyer and seller to sign and date the contract when the purchase is agreed upon.
