HOW TO CHOOSE A STUD

Source: www.americanbullyworld.com

COST OF STUD FEES

Stud fees typically range from 500.00 - 2000.00 for purebred dogs. Costs depend on how well known the stud dog is, the quality of the stud's pedigree, and the popularity of the breeder

 

PUPPY BACK DEALS

From experience puppy back deals are a very bad idea. The chances for either party to fail to keep their end of the bargain is very high. Arguments and debates regarding the deal are very common. If at all possible, it would be best to pay the stud fee in advance.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT STUD FOR YOUR DOG

It would be wise to choose a stud that has a pedigree similar to your female’s pedigree. This is known as line breeding and has the best chance of producing a consistent litter. If your dog is 100% razors edge for example, it would be wise to breed her to a 100% razors edge dog with similar ancestors (In the first 2-3 generations of her pedigree). Generations explained: The first generation would be her Sire and Dam. The Second generation is her grandparents, the third generation is her great grandparents, so on and so forth. The further back you go in generations, the less likely the puppies will look like the ancestor.

 

STUD CONTRACTS

It would be wise to sign an agreement with the stud owner that states if the breeding doesn’t take the first time, the following breeding will be free of charge. Some breeders will even allow 3 or more tries, or until the female gets pregnant.

Other areas to cover in the contract would be the following:

  1. If the female only has 1 puppy
  2. If the female gets pregnant but loses the pups
  3. If the female dies during birth or during pregnancy
  4. If the puppies survive but dies at a later time (From parvo, illness, ext.)
