- CONTACT US ON THE FIRST DATE OF HER HEAT CYCLE TO LET US KNOW SHE IS IN HEAT! WE WILL DETERMINE IF WE HAVE ROOM TO BOARD HER WITH US AND IF SO WE WILL SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT FOR YOU TO BRING HER TO THE RANCH TO DROP OFF AROUND DAY 7-9 (UNLESS YOU ARE PROGESTERONE TESTING WITH YOUR VET UNTIL SHE IS READY TO BRING TO BE BRED)
- IF YOU DO PLAN ON BRINGING YOUR FEMALE TO US FOR THE BREEDING YOU WILL NEED TO BRING A COPY OF HER REGISTRATION PAPERS, SHOT RECORD, THE FOOD SHE IS ON (IF SHE IS FOOD SENSITIVE) AND THE STUD FEE! ***BREEDING YOUR FEMALE USUALLY INVOLVES A FEW IN HOUSE PROGESTERONE TESTS AND TWO IN HOUSE ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATIONS.
The stud fee varies depending on the stud from $750-$1000.00. If you choose to board your female with us to do the breeding services the charges are as follows: We charge $40.00 per progesterone test needed, $75.00 per A.I.(artificial insemination) and $20.00/day for boarding your female with us (which all of these charges are much lower than vet pricing on these breeding services)! We will take care of your female like she was our own. We also have great success with the insemination process and the size of the litters. We have references from past stud customers if interested in having this provided for you!! If you choose to use a vet for the progesterone testing and artificial inseminations then the just contact us to book your female and pay the stud fee and keep in contact with us on when you will need the semen shipped or ready to be picked up.

We will keep you informed throughout the breeding process. We also provide assistance and information in preparing for your new arrivals after your female is bred!! We are available to answer your questions when problems arise with your female or your new puppies.
We offer fresh-chilled shipped semen which will cost the STUD FEE for the STUD you choose to breed to (which varies from $750-$1000 currently)! This includes cooled semen packaging, insemination supplies and 2 vials of semen (from one collection that should be split into two separate breeding’s for best results or you can inseminate the both vials and get a 2nd shipment if wanted.) The shipping runs around $200-250 (Which includes the collection, breeding supplies, shipping container, trip to the shipping center and shipping cost) per shipment depending whether it is a weekday or weekend. Just let us know when your female is starting to go into heat, so together we can plan it out. You will need to find a competent veterinarian that specializes in breeding: progesterone testing, cytology and artificial inseminations. Your veterinarian will be able to collect the information on your female to be able to tell us when the optimum time to breed her will be allowing us to know the best day to overnight the chilled semen. The stud fee and the shipping costs need to be paid prior to shipment of the semen. We also need a Stud Service Contract filled out and emailed or mailed to us with a copy of your female’s registration papers.

Fresh Cooled Semen
We can ship fresh-chilled semen straight to your veterinarian. Semen shipped from us will be guaranteed to be alive and motile. If for some reason your veterinarian does not approve of the semen quality, your female must not be inseminated with the semen and you must contact us the same day of receipt of semen to inform us so we may arrange another shipment or a refund. However, if your veterinarian inseminates your female with the semen, ALL guarantees from us are void and there will be no refund. Conception after live, motile semen delivery is the sole responsibility of the female’s owner and veterinarian. Accurate timing of the female ‘s cycle and proper use of the semen is crucial for your success. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us for any other details or information.

We will need to know before 12:00 pm if you need semen for the next morning. NOTE: Before shipping semen everything must be paid in full to ensure no delay on shipment.
CHECKING THE MOTILITY SAMPLE:
1. Motility of the semen sample always should be checked prior to insemination.
2. Motility analysis should always be performed on samples warmed to 37 degrees C (chilled sperm can appear non-motile or sluggish until warmed).
3. Gently invert the sample tube several times to mix.
4. Using a pipette, place a drop of semen on a pre-warmed microscope slide and cover with a pre-warmed cover slip.
5. If available, keep the slide on a slide warmer or a heated microscope stage for a few minutes before checking the motility under the microscope.
6. If your veterinarian does not approve of the semen quality, do not inseminate the female. Preparing for Insemination1. Your vet can centrifuge the dose of sperm with extender to bring the sperm portion to the top and to reduce the amount of fluid that will be put into the female if he chooses. If not centrifuging gently invert vial to mix and then draw up in pipette for insemination.
2. You may chose to inseminate the entire dose (both vials), or save one vial for insemination on the next day. 2 doses of semen will be shipped for either case.
3. If you chose to inseminate on two consecutive days, draw up one vial of the semen dose into the insemination syringe and store the remaining sample in the refrigerator overnight. (Do not warm either semen sample then re-cool it.)
4. You can warm the semen sample to be inseminated in your hand or pocket for a few minutes. (Do not microwave or use excessive heat quickly to warm the sperm up- SHOCK KILLS SPERM!!)
5. Inseminate the female immediately and hold her hind end up for 10 minutes to allow the sperm to travel down the reproductive tract.
