It really depends on the breeder.

Some of them have a fairly simple one page contract requiring that their name stay on the dog, the dog has to have all appropriate health testing before being bred, the breeder has to approve any breeding decisions, and the usual the dog comes back to them if you can't keep it.

The other end of the spectrum is a multi-page contract that spells out in excruciating detail exactly what you must feed the dog, exactly what handler you have to use, exactly what judges you can and can't enter under, how long you have to title the dog, and a whole host of nit-picky things that you have to do in every day life.

If you really like this pup, then ask for a copy of the contract to read. See if you can live with the terms of it. If there are things you don't like, ask the breeder if you can reach a compromise on them. If you and the breeder can't agree on terms, and you think that there is no way you can live with the contract, then say "thanks, but no thanks", and look elsewhere.
