    Can someone help me? I have always received a stud fee when i have studded my dog out but theres a lady who suggested i could have pick of the litter. Dont know if she is a con though. I want another dog so this would be ideal. How do i know that i wont be ripped off. I have had a contract signed up but what if she disappears.:confused:

    It is reasonably common practice to take pick of litter, why do you think she is going to rip you off ? If you don't trust her, don't use your dog at stud.

    If she isnt well enough known within the breed show circles that you feel you can trust her you probably shouldnt be studding out your dog to her anyway.
    Its highly unlikely she has anything worthy of breeding to if you havent at some point crossed paths with her at breed shows, or dont know anyone who has, the dog showing/breeding world is not that big ;)

    The person is aking if i will take pick of the litter. If only 1 puppy born then it will be sold and the money split 2 ways if more than 1 puppy born then i get to choose. I have had a contract drawn up. They are Dog lovers registered not kennel club. She has just started her season now. Dont know what to do.

    personaly i would make sure i have checked her out as much as i possibly could, even going to visit her in home with dogs ect that way you can make your mind up without maybe loseing out, as you would be getting a pup you will or should be intouch with this lady alot during the pregnancy, when i breed my bitch the stud dog owner was with me all the way, just to make sure all was well, it is unfortunate that not all people can be trusted so i would do as much searching as poss lol good luck :)

    I wouldn't worry too much about Crufts, most dogs are bred for form and not health anyway.

    Errr how long have you been breeding/showing? do you have enough knowledge to say about dogs that ARE shown at Crufts?

    Hi There

    I use my male dog as a stud dog and his last litter which was born on Sunday I am taking pick of the litter, when I was asked regarding taking pick of the litter I put it in the contract that it was subject to proof of id and address and do not sign kc papers until litter is born and you have made your choice.

    I have been in contact with them all throughout the bitches pregnancy and will be going over this weekend to have a look.

    Hope this helps you.

    Michelle

    if they are not going to be KC registered
    i would walk away
    why is she registering them with the DLR
    its not a proper register
    is the bitch KC registered
    why is she breeding
    to show or just to produce pups for cash
