Jackson's Kennel offers stud services to select bitches. We do not co-own litters for a split of the profits. The requirements are strict and nonnegotiable. Bitches must be:
Minimum age 2 years old, maximum age 6 years old
Have full registration with the AKC or an AKC accepted kennel club
Be Brucellosis negative and free of Canine Papilloma Virus symptoms
Have a clear fecal for live-cover and side-by-side AI (if fecal was positive proof of treatment is required before breeding)
Be current on vaccinations
May carry only 1 gene of VWD and no more than 2 DCM genes total
Be of breed standard height, color, disposition
Be in good health and of a healthy weight
Be of sound temperament and personality
Display no signs of reactiveness or aggression to people or animals
Have proof of minimal health testing: holter or echocardiogram, VWD, DCM1, DCM2, DvDOB, OCA genetic testing, and OFA or PennHip hip certification
LH surge & progesterone testing are recommended to confirm ideal mating timing
For AI shipped semen: The bitch owner will be provided with 2 vials of chilled semen with extender. Additional vials may be purchased for a $50 fee per vial. Chilled semen is shipped ASAP one-day shipping. The bitch owner is responsible for shipping costs. Shipping is not included in the stud fee. Banked frozen semen can be arranged and shipped; all fees for the collection, banking and transport are billed to the bitch's owner prior to shipping. We do offer fresh side-by-side AI performed by the breeder at the breeder’s/stud owner’s home.
POL: Pick of the litter (POL) may be considered only to bitches with clear VWD, DCM1, DCM2, DvDOB/Dings and DM with an estimated litter COI at or under 25%. POL is at the stud owner's discretion. The stud owner is responsible for picking up/transporting the puppy to themselves.
Pregnancy is to be confirmed by a veterinarian before whelping via blood relaxin test or ultrasound between day 30-35 gestation. A miscarriage is subject to rebreeding at Jackson's Kennel's discretion. A litter is considered one live puppy at birth. A live puppy is considered a puppy able to breath immediately on its own after birth. Puppies that are stillborn are not counted towards a litter. Fading puppies do not count as stillborn or miscarriage, and still count towards the at birth litter size.
There are no refunds on stud fees. Litters will be confirmed online through the AKC. Jackson's Kennel does not hold litter registration or litter papers. The bitch's owner will be provided a copy of the stud's pedigree. A copy of the stud's registration certificate will not be provided. The stud will be tested for Brucellosis prior to breeding. We require a minimum of two week's notice for stud service request to accommodate for testing and results to be back. A receipt will be provided to the bitch's owner for the paid amount or stating "stud services for pick of the litter from (bitch's registered name and registration number)". A copy of the signed contract will be provided to the bitch's owner prior to stud service. Failure to provide accurate vetting, health testing and other information may be subject to legal action.
Stud fee varies per stud and is subject to change based on pedigree and titles earned. Please see stud contract PDF for more details.
