That's interesting what your breeder says about Kennel Cough pawzaddict. I spoke to three separate vets about this and all said the same thing - that dogs who've had KC can remain infectious for several weeks after they've stopped coughing. I also have a leaflet about KC from a breeder which says "...a dog that has apparently fully recovered from Kennel Cough may remain contagious for weeks afterwards". Believe me, I was desperate for a vet to tell me otherwise.

If your breeder makes it clear to people paying a deposit the basis on which it will or will not be returned (e.g. "this deposit won't be returned to you if you refuse to take a dog that's ill") then I would absolutely agree that the deposit should be kept by the breeder. The point of a deposit is, in my mind, to ensure that breeders don't get time wasters' and avoid people simply backing out at the last minute on a whim. However, I also feel that the deposit, from the buyer's perspective, should be to ensure that the breeder will provide what has been asked for.

(Leaving aside any divergence in the law between Wales and here), even then, such a term might not be enforceable. It depends on the circumstances and amount of deposit to be forfeited. A breeder shouldn't have any trouble with an amount that represents dog food x however many weeks they'd need to find another buyer + other reasonable expenses incurred in keeping the puppy for longer, but if they are expecting to keep huge wads of cash under such a clause they might well have trouble enforcing it if somebody were to take action.
