Why do you want to put him at stud?

Blues eyes are considered a serious fault in some countries. Before you put him to stud you should show him to prove he is a good example of the breed. Seeing he is only dog lover registered you can't Show him. There's no proof that he is full pedigree as it is not a reputable registry.

Putting a dog to stud can
Totally change their temperament they cam become dog aggressive, mark like crazy. You also have to be able to give advice to the bitch owner on whelping, progesterone testing etc on top of that you have to be able to handle the actual mating it's not always a case od them just getting together and mating some bitches will fight and snap and bite, when they tie they can panic and tear genitals it's not easy. You have to be able to help them mate If for whatever reason they don't. The bitch could have an internal stricture you would have to know how to spot that (by doing an internal on the bitch).

In my honest opinion your dog Is not suitable for breeding due to his registry, eyes etc if you really want to breed and improve the breed them get another good quality dog from a reputable breeder (contact the chihuahua club of Scotland) and start again :)

Sounds like good advice from Kurukulla regarding using your pup as a stud.

As for training aid, ask away, I'll try to help.

his eyes arent blue all the way maybe that was a mis type on my behalf,he does have light eyes tho not brown,ive had him fully checked over by a vet and theres nothing wrong with his eyes or any other part of him,
i do agree he is not KC registered but i have met both his parents and both his grandparents,being KC registered isnt the bee all and end all and doesnt make them any less pedigree,ive not desire to show him,but a few chi owners have stopped me to tell me hes a prime example of the breed and would i consider letting him try to father pups by their bitches.
this is something i do not indend to do until i have every fact,pro and con and knowledge to do so.

I don't mean to sound rude but any chi owner who stops You unless they are aware of the breed standard and have experience with it won't know if your dog is a good example of the breed. If you look at the likes of pets4home lots of the stud adverts state perfect example of the breed and They aren't. The only way to know for sure is to get a breed specialists opinion.

The UK kennel club is the ONLY reputable registry in the UK. It is there for a reason, to keep the pedigrees, health testing results, titles from showing etc DLR is just a database someone made up to make money from people who don't have a kc reg dog.. I agree it doesn't make them anymore of a dog and one of mine is not kc registered but she is spayed because I don't know what's behind her, her confirmation is bad and she's not reg but many chi owners would think she's a good example of the breed.

I can't stop you from doing it but please think what you will
Be doing to the breed by breeding him. Also if he's not good at
Coming back off lead now, if you use him he will be worse he will go looking for bitches.

^Perfect advice. As nice and complimentary as people can be... most folks are not qualified to judge whether a dog is to standard or not. That's the point of showing; to compare the dogs to others; to determine which is truly the "best of the best" when it comes to improving the breed. And that is the only point to breeding... keeping the breed's integrity. Breeding for any other reason; such as just for pets... IMO is unethical. There's a lot of debate on this, yes; as many non-reputable breeders DO go out of their way to make sure their dogs don't end up in shelters, etc. But if you ask me, when so many dogs die every day just because there are not enough homes; I don't really think it's right to breed more pet quality dogs. Along with showing to truly evaluate/compare your dog conformationally; genetic health tests need to be done to make sure he isn't passing anything on. That doesn't mean a vet checkup where doc says "Oh he sure is healthy!" it means lots of expenses in bloodwork and various specific health screens. Eyes, hips, knees, etc. A regular vet exam doesn't cover these things; they evaluate your dogs current condition but can't tell you anything about the genetic makeup. Just seeing his parents isn't enough; and as said above the fact that he was registered with such an unreputable registry says enough about his lineage. =( People only register their dogs with these kinds of registries (Continental Kennel Club is one of the worst culprits here in the US) just because it sounds good to have "papers." But they don't really mean anything without the evaluation and titles. Sad fact is the folks telling you they'd love to use your dog as a stud just have $$$ on their mind; because no reputable breeder would ever say such things to someone without seeing that the dog has been health tested and is registered with a LEGIT registry. The best thing you can do is neuter your boy and love him forever; and use this as a learning experience on what to do next time around. Check with your local kennel club to find reputable breeders who show and health test; and I'm sure you can find one willing to 'take you under their wing' to teach you about the ETHICAL way go about breeding. =) Good luck!

As a rescue person, we only support responsible breeding as others have addressed here. Please reconsider fixing him and loving him for who he is rather than looking to produce mini-me Chis.

I am going to add a bit here....

About "good" chihuahua specimens...examples of the "breed" whatever you call it...Being a breed standard has so much more behind it that just the look of a dog. I know you met the lineage of you dog...but honestly you don't know what is there because the KC is the entity that keeps records, monitors breeders, upholds standards, records DNA--all of that. Even with all of that things with breeding are a gamble--without it it seems reckless.

About my dearly loved pup with a KC registration and pedigree from a KC registered and reputable breeeder---He would never pass snuff to show...he has numerous little faults...snout a bit too long, barely the 90 degree stop....slight over bite..retained baby teeth...will not "stack" unless he is in the bath..I know all of this-- However--I purchased my pet from a KC breeder because I want to keep the standard. My pup is standard (with faults) all major probalems such as liver shunt, hydro, bad knees etc. are absent because of responsible and transparent breeding. One really has to know what goes into a litter beside an adorable wee dog.

If you want to encourage genetically healthy chihuahua-s now and in the future...take some time and check this out. You are doing the right thing asking questions...
