Well, shes going to be 3 yrs on the 21st of sep and I finally have the time to breed her and offor her the pleasure of motherhood. Besides I would like to see a litter from her as well.

Papered and an extremely good bloodline. but of course a dog is only as good as it's trainer has taught. She does a fine job. Thank god were past the terrible two's tho.

S.E. MI, Lenawee county, I have the room to board a male for the required time to ensure a positive environment to breed.

Please contact me if you are willing to stud out your male via pm.

There is a reason why Viagra was invented ... because it's the male that needs to perform not the female. :) Therefore, it's the female that travels to the males house for a little "fun in the sun".

Sand Ridge Gang, I am very hesitant to give you a name of any stud because you need to have some type of goal in mind for your bitches future offspring. First, what is your bitch like? What is her pedigree? What are her strongest assets? What are her weakest? Is she a good dog compared to others in her breed? What do you want to get out of a litter of pups? Are you planning on getting one? Is your bitch OFA'd? CERF'd? What would you do with a couple of pups left over if you couldn't sell them?

It appears that this may be your first time breeding. Why do you want to do it? What is your motivation?

Don't take this the wrong way but if you don't have answers or never thought about the above questions, maybe you should hold off on breeding until you can. In addition to everything above, trust me, if you don't have a recognized dog with a good pedigree, or a dog that A LOT of people have seen hunt (i.e.-preserve dog), you will have a very difficult time selling them in today's economy. Especially if you're new to the breeding world.

If you can tell us a little more about your dog, why you want to breed it, what characteristics your looking for, etc. etc., etc., maybe somebody on the board will let you know about a stud.

Great post.

I think that many of us had the same thoughts. Thanks for conveying the message in a civil fashion as there have been less tactful discussions relating to the same scenario.

I agree, Great post. Its good to see a responsible breeder like this. Alot of times in hounds you see people going after what is hot. Even if the female cant get the job done she gets bred. Then all the blame for lousy pups falls on the stud.

I agree as well. A good breeder is worth a lot IMO. I still keep in touch with person I got my ESS from. They are an invaluable source of information.

I also have to add that, if you (not anyone specificly) are breeding a dog to make money, find another source of income. I know people that breed just to make a few bucks and then you see them up at Jay's Sporting Goods in Clare every weekend trying to get rid of the marginal (at best) dogs.

Yes, it is I. Now that you blew my cover ... just kidding :), if anybody wanted to find out who I am, they could have easily typed in my call name through a google search.

Anyways, I just want to clarify something for the "Sand Ridge Gang". Please don't think that I am criticizing you in any way. I don't know your dog. I don't know your intentions. Basically, I don't know anything from your post. You could have the best dog in the world, with the best pedigree, etc., I'm just saying that this information wasn't posted in this thread, that is all. To me, it would be very difficult to recommend a stud if I don't know what your intentions or the history of your dog are. That is all. Hopefully you have not taken offense to my reply, I just wanted some more information in regards to your plans.
