Q: In KY, but we sell pups here and to other states. Can't find KY lemon laws. What state's lemon laws have jurisdiction?

Trying to learn more about dog lemon laws. We breed in KY. We place pups in KY and other states. Two questions? 1.

Are there lemon laws in KY? Haven't found any to review. 2. What court/state has jurisdiction if we ever have a problem with a person in another state we have placed a pup with? Thank you.

A: There are no lemon laws in Kentucky regarding animals. Basic contract law controls. 2. Kentucky should have jurisdiction since you are here and the dogs are here. You can easily eliminate problem 2 by including in your sales contract that all disputes will be handled and resolved under Kentucky law.
