Stud Agreement Contract
Dam owners generally have a specific overview of the type of studs they wish to raise with their dam. Some desired properties remain the same throughout the line, for example, good health and good genealogical picture. Each stud farm should have been tested for brucellosis, a sexually transmitted disease common in dogs — and should have written evidence of a negative result. As a stud farm, you need to find a balance between marketing and service. You can`t say yes to any dam owner who shows an interest in your dog stud because the quality of service will suffer (and you`ll have a very exhausted dog!). On the other hand, you cannot be too conservative, otherwise the demands will decrease. Before you even consider stinging your dog, he must have an impeccable medical record so as not to allow the maintenance to be done at the expense of himself, the dam and the future puppies. If you are suddenly inundated with offers from dam owners, don`t be shy! There`s nothing wrong with raising your prices – if dam owners seriously on raising their mother with your stud, they will usually pay more. Popularity can be instantaneous, or it can occur gradually over time (often once dam owners can see that your stud has produced a strong range of puppies). Change your price accordingly, but be smart; Being too ambitious can lead to a loss of demand for livestock services. Although you can indicate that the owner of the dog must reimburse you for the collection costs, there is no reason today with credit cards and FedEx for a breeding dog owner to pay out of pocket for a breeding.
If you decide to be reimbursed, you are very clear that veterinary and breeding costs are in addition to the final costs of breeding. Other common clauses also contain details of what a « throw » is – usually, at least one puppy (dead or alive). When a dam produces only one puppy, a return service is usually offered. Also details on when the owner of the stud farm will take the commission of the scope; usually at the age of 7 weeks before leaving the dam owner`s residence. The best way to get the attention of dam owners is to present your stud at performance events or dog shows to make sure it takes first place on the podium. Dam owners looking for a stud farm will surely prefer a champion over a second. The more attention your stud receives, the more you can afford to have your selection of play-offs to make the most complementary match! Everything should be mentioned in your contract, so that it avoids confusion at the time of breeding or after the arrival of the puppies. All additional clauses in the stud service contract also vary, but must be read and understood before maintenance. These include restrictions on future litter breeding, for example, the dam owner must agree not to sell puppies to commercial traders who use the puppies exclusively for repeated breeding.
