Stud Service
 

We offer stud service to approved outside females via live cover or ship chilled semen. We also have frozen semen available for purchase on all four of our studs,; Shine, Scout, Brewer, & Brock. 

All of our studs are routinely tested for brucellosis and all females planning to breed to our studs are required to be tested for brucellosis prior to breeding, no exceptions. Please make sure your female is also up to date on all appropriate vaccinations as well. 

Stud Fee; Stud fee for our males is our choice of; pick of litter puppy back or $2500. 

LIVE COVER PROCESS: If you choose to do live cover then you will need to give us a heads up as soon as your female is in heat. Brucellosis testing results can take up to 5-7 days to get back if it is not in-house, so get your female in to your vet asap to get that sent off. We prefer to have your female progesterone tested with your own veterinarian starting around day 5-7 and keep us updated on those results. Plan to bring her on her best days (about 48 days after ovulation) for 2-3 breeding's. You can also do in house progesterone with our own vet, Blue Mountain, in Missoula, MT. 

 

If necessary, we can board your female with us. The boarding fee is $25/day and added to the stud fee (outlined in the contract). We just ask that you bring her food and whatever you feel would make her comfortable during her stay. Your female will not come in to contact with any of our other dogs except the stud dog. With live cover, we will expose your female once a day at least and aim for at least 3 ties. 

SHIPPING CHILLED SEMEN: If you chose to have us ship semen then the collection will be collected, prepared, and packaged by Blue Mountain Veterinary, Dr. Trevor Ferguson or myself if Blue Mountain is unavailable. We do keep packaging supplies on hand, so can usually ship any time of the year, but prefer at least 48 hours to schedule a drop off at the vet. The approximate cost for this process is FedEx overnight shipping (approximately $200-$250) + collection/packaging fees (approximately $200). Semen will be evaluated before and after adding the extender prior to shipping. FedEx does not ship on Sundays, so we will need to plan around that to make sure we get the best days. We can send directly to you or to your vet. 

FROZEN SEMEN: We currently have frozen available on all 4 of our studs; Shine, Scout, Brewer, & Brock. We are open to selling for immediate use or selling it for you to store for later use. Either way, the price for this is the $2500 stud fee (we do charge full stud fee up front for frozen) + approximately $200 for frozen semen shipping preparation + approximately $600 shipping frozen semen tank cost. We need at least 72 hours in advance for shipping process.
