Stud Dog Owner(s) reserves the right to take a puppy in lieu of a stud fee, unless stud fee is paid in full up front prior to breeding. Stud Dog Owner(s) will choose said puppy at 5 to 7 weeks of age, before any puppies from said litter have left the bitch owner’s residence, after examination of litter by Stud
Dog Owner(s) or his/her representative.
DEFINITION OF “LITTER”
A Litter, for the purposes of this Contract, is defined as a minimum of 2 puppies born alive. If Breeding does not take, a Repeat Breeding will be given to the same Bitch on her next season. If the Bitch fails to conceive on the return service, this Contract is terminated. If other arrangements have not been made with the Stud Dog Owner(s) and the Bitch is not bred on her next season, or is bred to another Stud Dog on her next season, and the Contract is null and void. If Litter results in only one puppy, and the Bitch Owner does not wish to repeat the Breeding, a $1000 deposit, plus expenses, will be considered payment for a one puppy Litter and the Contract is fulfilled.
Balance of Stud Fee must be paid in full before Bitch is returned to Bitch Owner after a repeat Breeding.
Bitch Owner is responsible for all testing done to the bitch prior to and during Breeding to assure the proper timing of said Breeding. If Stud Dog is able to perform naturally and for some reason the Bitch Owner asks for artificial insemination or the Bitch cannot be bred naturally, Bitch Owner is responsible for cost of said process. If Bitch Owner is not willing to pay for progesterone testing, smears or AI's this should be stated ahead of time and included in the contract initialed by both parties. If this is the case we will try our best to breed the dogs at the proper time but if no puppies result, no repeat breeding is offered.
The cost of shipping Bitch to and from Stud dog is that of the Bitch Owner. Bitch will be bred two to three times naturally or artificially depending on what the Stud Dog Owner’s veterinarian feels is best to cover the entire breeding cycle. We will make every effort to cover the entire breeding cycle of the bitch.
No puppies resulting from the breeding may be sold to brokers, pet shops or puppy mills. Should this part of the contract be ignored, Stud Dog Owner will pursue this clause in a court of law.
Stud Dog Owner understands that most breeders sell puppies with a first right of refusal clause. Stud Dog Owner would appreciate being informed of puppies that are returned for any reason. An effort will be made on the Stud Dog Owner’s part to help Bitch Owner find a new home for said puppy. Stud Dog Owner wishes Bitch Owner to understand that he/she takes the breeding of said Stud Dog very seriously and will be very interested in the puppies resulting from this litter for their entire lifetime. Stud Owner agrees to accept returned puppies if the Bitch Owner is unable to at that time.
