Some stud dog owners actually use a written contract that lays out the terms under which the breeding will be conducted. It is up to the bitch’s owner to read through the terms and sign the contract if they are agreeable.
Both parties retain a copy of the agreement, and the bitch’s owner should also receive a copy of the stud’s pedigree. Here are some of the common points usually included in most stud contracts.
Sometimes both parties simply come to a verbal agreement on the terms, but it is usually better to write them down so you can refer back to them at a later date.
