Question Question about possible stud

Hi there!!


The breeder of our little girl that we are going to see and put a deposit on tomorrow, saw Marley on my FB page, and likes that he is a light Chocolate with tan markings. She knows he is not yet neutered, and was asking if he was registered. Marley's Mom had her CKC papers but his Dad did not, and he isn't registered either.

Both of our little girl's parents have their CKC papers, and we CAN have her registered if we want, but we are not going to.

If this breeder has all of her studs and females registered, does that mean Marley has to be registered in order for her to be a stud for her? I can talk to her more about it when we see her, but I've never done this before. We are planning on neutering Marley, as he is marking everywhere, and we originally had no intentions of breeding, but are willing to hold off, if this breeder would like to use him.

What do the stud owners normally charge? (I know pick of the litter is sometimes payment, but the little girl will be our 3rd Chi, and that's all we can handle for now.) So, do we charge a fee, or do we get a percentage from the pups? How does this all work?

Sorry for the long post, lol.

In general, he should be registered if he is going to be used as stud. Potential stud dogs should also have vet clearance for patellas and general health. It is also good to have an experience breeder/ exhibitor go over the dog to evaluate how well he conforms to the breed standard.
Unfortunately many people will breed without registration, but it is not considered responsible to do so. The only purpose for producing non-registerable puppies is too make money. Breeding a dog can also increase the marking behavior. Breeding has a lot more to it than most people realize. Hope this helps you make a decision you can feel good about.
You mentioned CKC registration, so I assume you are in Canada?

A responsible breeder won't use an unregistered dog that hasn't been health tested. A good breeder will only use a top quality dog that has a proven show record.
All that aside, if you want Marley to be a happy loving pet, don't use him at stud. When it comes to mating, it is a case of 'what you've never had, you'll never miss'. A dog that has mated will want to mate again, often this urge will remain even after neutering. If he is already marking, this will get worse, and he is likely to start showing dominant behaviour around other dogs.
Finally, mating can actually be quite dangerous for the dog. An experienced breeder will supervise carefully to prevent damage to the dog. There are also sexually transmitted diseases.
The stud fee varies according to the quality and show record of the dog. For an unproven dog it is pretty minimal, it won't cover the cost of the vet testing.

If you think he marks now he will mark EVERYTHING and its a horrible habit to break they continue even after they are neutered.

Thanks everyone! She didn't say anything about using him as a stud when we went to visit the puppy, so I didn't bring it up. We weren't really sure we wanted him to be a stud anyway... there are enough pups in the world that need homes as it is.
Thanks for all the tips and advice! I didn't know that once they've mated, even if you neuter them, they can/will continue marking and it gets worse! Good to know!

I have definitely heard what has been mentioned above about stud dogs. Prince is a retired breeding dog who was neutered at three years. Somehow I am very lucky, he does not mark and he is sweet, loving and non-aggressive little guy even though he was neutered late in life. There is no way of knowing though what the outcome will be for stud dogs.
