Default studs???

Hi, it is way to early to breed Mia but I was trying to get a price of a stud doesn't have to be papered I have a few offers but they all want pick of the litter but when I do breed Mia I want to keep a pup for mia to play with and i don't want them to take the pup i want... does anyone know of what a price would be...? I don't plan on breeding her until she is 2 years old sooo no need to hurry just pricing...

It really depends what area you live in.
If you don't want to pay then you really are going to have to give up the pick to the person to get a good stud

Just a note...... most breeders who advertise studs will not breed with you unless the pup is papered and also tested. if you chose to breed with any dog who comes along and is not tested or paperd you may be asking for trouble... although not saying you might not get a good one. Just saying good breeders who stud out will want testing especially. If you were just using a friends dog for a stud the price should be much lower then the going rate

In my area most studs range in price of $100 to pick of the litter. The breeder that I just had my female to charges $450. Which is better than pick of the litter which could be in the range of $450-600. When I was looking for a stud I had a lot of people call that had an unproven male and they wanted pick of the litter...I did not want to pay such a high price for an unproven stud. If you give pick of the litter, that is exactly what the stud dog owner gets is pick of the litter. It may be the same puppy that you want, but by contract, because a reputable breeder will ask for a signed contract(and so should you-before the breeding at any price) you will be required to give pick of the litter. It is a common practice. And the breeder, if you give pick of the litter, has a lot more control over your litter than maybe you want to give-because no puppies can be sold until the breeder makes their choice. Check around before you breed, see what is available. Most people with papered dogs will not even consider your female without papers...but plan ahead and do not wait until the last minute-with the first heat you should be able to figure out the subsequent heat cycle and arrange a breeding. But wait until your puppy is older-younger adult dogs sometimes do not know what to do with a litter of puppies and it can be time consuming and disastrous....

If all you want is another chi, then I would recommend having your chi spayed and then buying another...Simply to breed because you want a pup is not a good idea. You should wait until the female is 2 years before her first litter and remember that she will probably not have just one. Then you have the added costs of making sure that mommy is fed well during pregnancy, that is, if she even takes the first time she is bred. The added time, expense of raising a litter of puppies-chi are one of the least expensive puppies to raise, but they do not leave mommy until 8-12 weeks depending on the puppy. Then there are the vet appointments-hopefully mommy can have the litter without complications, but there is the chance she might need a c-section and then the puppies need to be wormed and have a vet check with first shots before they go to new homes...and don't forget you have to advertise. You may be able to go thru all of this without a worry, but just wanted to let you know that sometimes the expense of the litter is more than just purchasing another pup... And there are those people that purchase a puppy and find they do not have room or want the puppy-do you give money back, do you take the puppy back-these are just a few of the questions and answers that a reputable breeder faces all the time...just to make you think...please do not read anything more into this than what is intended, but I just brought up the questions...to think about.... I purchased 4 female chis before I decided to breed one of them-the other 3 are spayed, they are pets only. I have had one litter of chis (have had other litters of other breeds)
chis were the smallest pups I have had...I learned a lot, but took lots of time...hope this helps..

Quickdog, I think you gave really good advice and that's good for us all to read and think about if we ever think about breeding.
