Breeding Services and Fees
There is a $350.00 charge which covers boarding and breeding services for your female. We attempt two natural breedings. The remaining stud fee is required to be paid in full within two weeks following the whelping of your litter. Upon receipt of the stud fee, the signed litter registration papers will be mailed to you.
Four puppies are considered a full litter. With less than four puppies, the fee will be reduced by dividing the stud fee by the number of puppies whelped. For instance, if the stud fee is $1000 and only one pup is born, the stud fee would be reduced to $250. If the breeding does not take, all but the $350 boarding and service charge will be refunded.
There is a $100 round-trip airport charge for shipping your dog to the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport.
If you choose to leave your dog during the breeding process the first five days are free, thereafter boarding is $42.00 per day.
Stud Fees: $1000.00
We reserve the right to decline stud service. All stud fees’ are subject to change without notice.
