Thank you for expressing an interest in using Peppers Ferry Pups in your breeding program. Enclosed you will find a copy of the chosen stud’s pedigree and our policies concerning stud services to outside bitches. Before a commitment for breeding is made please consider the following. Prior to a breeding agreement, we require from you:
1) A photocopy of your bitch's AKC registration.

3) A photocopy of your bitch's genetic testing.
4) Recent photograph or video of the bitch.
Following an agreement to breed, it is required that you:
1) Provide a veterinary certificate of a negative Brucella titer, negative aerobic vaginal culture taken with guarded culture instrument, and a negative mycoplasma culture, dated no more than 30 days before the mating. We will need a photocopy of all lab reports.
2) Pay all veterinary costs, at the time of service, while the bitch is in our care. This would include vaginal smears, artificial insemination (if the bitch is unreceptive to natural breeding or the culture report is unsatisfactory.)
3) A record of current vaccinations including Rabies.
4) Names and addresses of all owners.
5) Agree that puppies resulting from this breeding shall not knowingly be sold either directly, or to an agent thereof, who sells outright or consigns to a pet shop, kennel, or individual whose purpose is mass production, wholesaling, or retailing of purebred dogs. Prior to an agreement to breed, our responsibilities to you are as follows:
1) To provide a photocopy of our stud's AKC registration.
2) To provide a photocopy of our stud's genetic testing.
2) To provide a photocopy of our stud's genetic testing.
3) A four-generation pedigree.
After an agreement to breed has been signed, it would be our responsibility to provide you:
1) A negative Brucella titer dated no more than 30 days before the mating. All proposed bitches must meet the following criteria:
1) The bitch must be in good physical condition. She must be free of fleas and ticks and have had a bath before she arrives.
2) The bitch must have a stable temperament.
3) The bitch must have proper dentition. We will not breed any bitch that is under or overshot or has three or more missing teeth.
4) If the bitch is five years of age or older she ought to have a current T4 thyroid test. STUD SERVICE POLICY
Balance is payable upon the bitch’s arrival. Boarding fees are due at final pickup of bitch.
The owner of the dam identified above agrees on this date that the stud fee must be paid to the stud dog owner before the stud dog owner will sign the AKC litter registration application.
NOTE: The American Kennel Club takes the position that the owner of the sire is required to sign an application to register a litter certifying only to the fact that a particular dam was bred to the sire identified on the Litter Registration Application form on a specified date of mating, unless there is an agreement signed by all parties concerned in which it is specifically set forth that the owner of the sire is not obligated to sign an American Kennel Club litter registration application form until such time as the stud fee has been paid.
1) Two or more live puppies, seven days old, constitutes a litter.
2) If a breeding does not occur, either naturally or artificially, the owner of the stud dog will provide a return stud service on the next heat cycle to the dam of this contract.
3) If the bitch does not whelp two or more live puppies, the stud dog owner agrees to provide a return stud service on the next heat cycle to the dam of this contract.
*Please indicate none if there are no additional testing information available.
Peppers Ferry Pups reserve the rights approve or deny application for stud services.
