We guarantee the health, availability and quality of our stud dogs. Our contract guarantees a complimentary rebreed if the dam doesn't get pregnant.
All of our stud services are offered as artificial insemination only. We do not offer live cover.
Local Breeding in Houston
If you're in Houston or close enough to drive, we can meet you at our vet for side-by-side insemination. We also have a vet technician that can perform AI at our home. We offer two separate inseminations either 24 or 48 hours apart.
If Houston is too far away, we can overnight a sample of fresh, chilled semen to your home or reproductive vet. We use a specially formulated semen additive called an extender which keeps the semen alive and active. Once we verify the quality of the semen under a microscope, we package the semen in a Styrofoam cooler with an ice pack. We guarantee the semen will remain live and viable for 48+ hours. We can also ship frozen semen with the help of our reproductive vet.
Stud fees vary depending on the size of the dam, the number of breedings, shipping requirements, etc. The minimal stud fee is $1,000. Please let us know if we can put together a personalized estimate that meets your needs and budget.
Deposit & Payment Terms
To secure your potential calendar dates for your stud service, we require a $100 reservation fee which will go towards your total due for services. This guarantees a spot on our stud calendar. This fee is non-refundable. The final balance is due at time of stud service.
We require you to do progesterone testing in order to carefully time the insemination and guarantee pregnancy. This is a blood draw done at the vet. Most reproductive vets can get the results back within minutes. The progesterone test can be done every 2-3 days starting about 3-5 days into heat. Timing of the test can be more certain if the lengths of the dam's previous heat cycles are known.
