Our stud dogs are available to a select few bitches each year so i advise that you get booked in ahead of time - it is rare that we can occomodate last minute matings but please call to discuss.
I ask that all breeders ensure that all relevant health tests have been completed on your bitch before getting in touch with us. We will only support / work with ethical and like minded breeders so therefore will not accommodate any standard sized dogs that are not hip scored or DNA tested. If you do need any help with this we are happy to advise.
All of our stud dogs are UK Kennel Club registered without restrictions so please do get in touch to discuss COI % for possible pure breed litters.
Stud fees are as follows:
Bailey - Golden Retriever £750
Mufasa - Standard Poodle £800
Digby - Bernese Mountain Dog £1750
and are payable on first visit should we achieve a mating - slip matings are considered successful mating and a payment would be expected. You will be invited back for a second mating, we will be very flexible with this and work with you to ensure that we have done our best to achieve a pregnancy.
Our dogs are all very tolerant of our visitng guests and we expect the same behaviour from your bitches. We reserve the right to refuse working with aggressive dogs. We will never agree to using a muzzle during matings.
You will be issued with a receipt for the mating and will be expected sign a stud fee contract - this can be emailed across before making a decision as to whether you would like to use our stud.
A successful mating that fails to result in a pregnancy will allow for a free return on the same bitch on her very next season. This return will only be permitted with the same bitch (microchip numbers will be taken and checked). We will never refund a stud fee.
