Stud Services

We offer stud services to established breeders and those who are mentored by them.

Cost

Our stud services cost between $3,500-$5,000, or the pick of the litter puppy back on a case to case basis.

Remi's stud fee is: $4,000

Trippy's stud fee is: $3,500 for the first three booked Studdings.

Phantom's stud fee is $5,000

Health Testing

All of our studs are Embark and OFA hip/elbow/patella tested. Embark links listed on our Dogs pare. OFA information can be provided upon request.

Transport 

We are happy to fly and nanny our small studs anywhere for natural ties or side by side collection. If within a reasonable distance from Centerville, Iowa, we are happy to drive and meet halfway. The female’s Owner is responsible for the cost of transport. 

Breeding 

We have a spectacular vet clinic a few blocks from us. If you want to send your female to us to breed naturally, or be AI/TCI/Surgically bred, they are happy to do so. We do not bring in outside females to our kennel for rush of illnesses. Our vet will board a female for $18-22 a day, and can run progesterone tests as needed. This cost and option is up to the female Owner.

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 offered to the same Bitch on her next season if both parties are in agreement.

Any costs related to reproduction and transport including but not limited to AI’s, TCI’s, Surgical insemination, flights, ground transport, and so on will not be refunded. If other arrangements have not been made with the Stud Dog Owner and the Bitch is not bred on her next season, or is bred to another Stud Dog on her next season, the Contract is null and void.

STUD DOG OWNER AGREES TO:

  • Provide full genetic panel by Embark if Bitch owner or puppy buyers request it.


  • If the Bitch is brought to the stud, let Bitch Owner know exactly when and how many times the Stud and Bitch tie to help with knowing an accurate birth timing.


  • Agree that if the Bitch is brought to the Stud Dog Owner, they will keep the Bitch properly confined following Breeding to ensure no other Dog could mate her accidentally before her season is complete.


  • If the Stud is brought to the Bitch for live cover, be present to allow for at least two ties.


  • Fly the stud to the Bitch owner for side by side collection or natural ties. Any costs related to transportation are to be paid by the Bitch owner.

  • Send the stud in good health, free of parasites or infections.

No reproductive, breeding, or other related fees will be taken out of the stud fee.


Stud will be treated like one of the Bitch Dog Owner’s own animals when in the care of the Bitch Dog Owner. He will be exercised, played with and pampered. Bitch Dog Owner will make his/her greatest effort to make sure this stud will feel comfortable during his stay, as well as being adequately separated from Stud Dog Owner’s other male and female dogs.
Bitch will be allowed to breed with the Stud as often as needed when in the Bitch Dog Owner’s care. If the dogs cannot tie naturally, the Bitch Dog Owner will immediately contact the Stud Dog Owner to see how they wish to proceed.

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 if help is requested on the puppies return. 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.

This agreement is made and signed by both parties to ensure the wellbeing and protection of this animal. If any part of this Agreement is breached, LJ Kennels is released from any further obligations hereunder. Should LJ Kennels need to seek legal action against the Bitch Owner or the Bitch Owner seek legal action against LJ Kennels due to violations in this agreement, the Bitch Owner will assume any and all attorney and court fees. This Contract and Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the United States and the State of Iowa in Appanoose County. Buyer agrees and understands that this contract is non-transferable, as it applies only to the Bitch and Stud Owners.
