Is my puppy contract barring breeding valid?

////Is my puppy contract barring breeding valid?

Question

The puppy contract states that we promise not to use the dog for breeding. There is no penalty listed for violating the clause or contract in general. Is the statement valid?

Answer

A contract does not need to have a specific penalty clause in order to be valid. I suggest you get the dog spayed/neutered anyway. Spaying/neutering not only help to curb the serious overpopulation of dogs and cats but also provide health benefits.
