BREEDING RULES

Stud Dogs

As part of our due diligence procedures, we require all stud dog owners to read and abide by the following:

 

  1. The owner of the male dog should not breed any male owned by them without the actual registration paperwork in their name and possession.

  2. Prior to breeding, we strongly recommend that all stud dogs have been health tested and are also microchipped in coherent with UK law. 

  3. UK Bully Kennel Club requires all dogs that will be siring three or more litters to be DNA profiled.

  4. We require you to keep ongoing and accurate records of pedigrees and breeding.

  5. Dogs are to be bred only with females that will, in your considered opinion, be an asset to the breed. Females will be of sound temperament and bereft of inheritable defects, unaffected by disease and between the ages of 18 months and eight years old.

  6. Puppies are only to be used for siring after the age of twelve months.

  7. Owners are to supervise all breeding, ensuring that only the stud dog selected by the owner of the female is used.

  8. Prior to mating occurring, it is your responsibility to ensure that all relevant details concerning the mating are entered into a signed written contract for the avoidance of doubt and to the benefit of both parties concerned. A signed stud certificate should also be supplied to the owner of the female dog.

  9. In the event of the female not conceiving or producing a viable litter, we advise that you offer a free return service by the same dog for the same female.

  10. After the birth of the litter, the owner of the male dog shall sign the litter registration form for the owner of the female

Brood Females

As part of our due diligence procedures, we require all brood female dog owners to read and abide by the following:

 

  1. Females are to be offered for breeding only in the event that you know them to be of sound temperament, and unaffected by disease or inheritable defects.

  2. Similarly, you should only use the female dog with a stud dog that you are confident to be of sound temperament and unaffected with disease or inheritable defects.

  3. You should not breed your female prior to the age of 18 months old, and then only in the event that the female is considered to be of sufficient mental and physical maturity to proceed with a litter.

  4. UK Bully Kennel Club highly recommends that all brood females are to be health tested and check by a vet prior to breeding. 

  5. Females should not be used for breeding beyond their eighth birthday, neither should they be allowed in excess of two litters consecutively without a season in between. In their breeding lifetime, the females should not be allowed to produce more than three litters. 

  6. Prior to mating occurring, it is your responsibility to ensure that all relevant details concerning the mating are entered into a signed written contract for the avoidance of doubt and to the benefit of both parties concerned.

  7. In the event of a puppy being born with a serious defect or irreversible illness, the services of a vet should be employed to humanely euthanize it.

  8. You should ensure that you provide appropriate medical care, feeding, exercise and socialization for the female and her litter, and it is your responsibility to keep and care for all puppies until they are placed in a suitable home.

  9. The dam has already had two litters delivered by caesarean section.
