Nobody will pay that kind of stud fee for a pet quality unproven dog. The hip and elbow scores will be on the certificate you got given when you had him X-rayed and scored.oh sorry. no this is the first time i have decided to stud him. unless he has sneaked off in the park ha ha. joking
not only expensive and difficult, they are hard to find responsible homes for. There are tens of thousands in rescue centres all over the country. I love the breed but even if I had one, there is no way I could bring myself to breed them, knowing what I do. I breed nice easy to home little dogs instead which don't tend to atttract the wrong sort of people like the 'macho' breeds do.I have my rottie X newfie, purely as a pet.oh right. it must be the parents hip scores i have then.
i will ring up the vet and get him scored.
thanks for the info.
i have 1 bitch and we had no intention of breeding her and as the male is her nephew we had her spade. we should have left her and just kept them seperate, they live together you see and share the same kennel, it is large enough.
im moving in a few weeks so i may set up several pens and look into breeding them. will have to read up about it first as im sure its and expensive and difficult process
Exactly.Or a similarly behaved veteran as my friend did last year with a 10 yr old schip when the owners died?
