    Why dont you go back to your dogs breeder or find a breeder who uses the same lines and get a dog from the same strain?? I think you'll be lucky to find someone with a suitable, health tested bitch who will want a 10 year old stud dog - please dont take offence at that comment - its not meant as a slight on your dog:)

    Thats just my opinion Garry;) - besides the fact that the sperm count does deteriorate as the dog gets older:cool:

    At 10 years of age and unproven he will need a sperm count check at the vets to be sure. Is he health tested? Also are you wanting to use him on the same breed or any breed?
    I am sorry to say but I doubt anyone would want to use a 10 year old unproven dog. Try getting back in touch with the breeder of your boy and ask if they have any pups due from the same lines.

    well as you have no history about him,it wouldn`t be a good idea,golden cockers don`t have a great reputation(rage syndrome).then theres all the health problems they have,although if at his age his sight is still good,thats one out of the way.As already stated good breeders wouldn`t be willing to use an unproven dog.It would probably be best to leave it

    You could go and look up some Cocker Breeders with a view to buying a puppy in time. I dont know any Cocker Breeders so cannot help you there but if you go on the KC website I am sure the Clubs will put you in touch with a reputable breeder. Thats the only way to go with this I am afraid - most good breeders wouldnt use an unproven dog and he may be past his prime anyway - so look at buying a puppy :)

    It`s one thing to use a proven stud dog at 10 years old. But another to start to use an unproven dog at 10 years old. Really it is not the right thing to do .

    i wish you luck with what ever you do.
    its nice you want to keep his line going.
    a health check is a good idea.
    i have not seen any age limit for a stud dog only for a bitch.
    i wish you well
