dog stud service is the agreement and act of lending or using a specific stud dog so it can mate and breed a female dog. In exchange for the stud dog’s semen will be received a cash sum, the first pick of the litter or anything agreed between both breeders. Dog stud service contracts are often used to clearly state the terms and conditions of such breeding.

In the dog breeding world, a “stud” is a male dog whose owner(s) agree is suitable to breed with another female dog. The female dog in this instance is described as a “dam” and she will need to be equally suitable for breeding. Suitability is usually determined after a full health screen with a vet — a suitable dog will be in good physical shape and free from any illnesses or faulty genes. Both mating partners must be selected for their conformation to the breeder’s breeding program.

What is Stud Service?

The mating process between a stud and dam (with the aim of breeding) is known as a stud service. The owner(s) of the stud will act as an advocate for their sire (by using advertisements, networking at performance events, etc), allowing dam owners to come forward and express an interest in the stud.

Both parties will have expectations about what they wish to gain from the experience. The owner of the dam will usually be concerned with the health, aesthetics, and genes of a stud with the aim of producing puppies with desired qualities. The stud owner will also be concerned with selecting the most complementary dam for his stud. In exchange for services, the stud owner will receive a stud fee and will usually be guaranteed the first pick of the litter if breeding is successful.

The service also extends beyond just purely allowing a dam to mate with a stud. If you are a stud owner, you will be involved in the inner workings of the process from beginning to end. For example, you will be expected to guarantee a certain number of puppies, assist the dogs in the mating process (if required) and care for the female throughout.

How to Select the Right Stud?

Dam owners will generally have a specific outline of the kind of stud they wish to breed with their dam. Certain desired traits will remain the same across the board, for example, good health and good pedigree. Every stud should also have been tested for Brucellosis, a common sexually transmitted disease in dogs — and should have written evidence of a negative test result.

Features such as breed type and aesthetics will also be important. An owner will usually identify flaws in their dam whilst seeking a stud that holds these missing characteristics, so that together they can make the perfect puppies. It’s difficult to find a stud that possesses every single weakness the dam has, so it is best to prioritize which ones are most important to you.
