When our clients, come to us and let us know that they are interested in breeding their dog, we have them fill out our extensive breeding form and get all the health clearances (Hips, Elbows, Eyes, EIC & CNM) that we require done on the dog before breeding. 

  • We will approve the breeding as long as all the health clearances come back good or excellent. 
  • Next we will suggest a Stud that best accommodates her strengths and weaknesses. 
  • We take care of the breeding, send her home for the duration of the pregnancy. At 50-53 days, the owner will take her in and get an X-ray or Ultrasound done to confirm the pregnancy and give us a good idea on the amount of puppies she has.
