Courteous Business Practices

We want business to run as smoothly as possible therefore, there are some practices we need bitch owners to follow in this process:

  • We must be made aware of progesterone test results no later than 3:00 pm Eastern Time if you are requesting shipping that day. 

 

  • Shipping requests after 3:00 pm Eastern Time will incur a late notification fee of $300, totaling $600 shipping.

 

  • Please make sure you are confident in your progesterone numbers.  We will not re-ship because you are unsure of the progesterone results. 

 

  • If you request a shipment and it is collected/packaged, then you change your mind; you will be charged the $300 shipping fee to cover the cost of the collection and analysis.   

 

  • If you happen to incur any of these additional charges prior to your shipment, we will not send the semen until all fees have been paid in full.

 

  • Stud services must be used within one year of purchase, unless paid in full.  If you have not used your stud service within one year, you have the option to forfeit the lock-in fee or pay the stud service in full.  If paid in full, there is no time limit in which to use the service.

 

  • The exception to the one-year time limit is early-lock ins, which instead must be used within one year of the stud pup turning eight months old.  If you have not utilized your lock-in/stud service by that time you will also have the option to forfeit the lock-in fee or pay the service in full.  If paid in full there will be no time limit in which to use the service.

 

  • If, unfortunately, the Stud dog dies before the service can be provided, the bitch owner will be able to transfer monies paid to another open VBF stud, to be used within a year from the transfer.  

 

FedEx Shipping by Breeder

Shipping via Cargo

Semen can be shipped through a Southwest Cargo.  Stud Dog Owner will collect semen, analyze, add extender, and package in the proper shipment container.  Semen will be shipped from Tampa International Airport (TPA) or Orlando International Airport (MCO) to the nearest available airport.  At that time, Stud Dog Owner will notify Bitch Owner of the flight that will be used.  Stud Dog Owner’s collection, analysis, and shipping fee for this option is $300.00.

 

In-Person Breedings

All Bitch Owners are more than welcome to have their Bitch bred in-person via artificial insemination within a one-hour distance at no cost or up to two hours away for $300 in travel fees.   If the Bitch Owner would like this breeding option, they must give the Stud Dog Owner advanced notice in order to fit into the schedule.  Stud Dog owner will collect the semen on the spot, however, Bitch owner must do the artificial insemination themselves.

Breedings/Collections at the Veterinarian

Stud Dog owner can meet Bitch Owner at any vet they desire within a one hour distance at no cost or up to two hours away for $300 in travel fees.  Bitch Owner is responsible for paying any exam, collection, and insemination fees due to the veterinarian at the time services are rendered. 

 

DEFINITION OF a “LITTER”

A litter, for the purposes of this contract, is defined as “a minimum of two puppies born alive.”  If breeding does not take, a repeat breeding will be given to the same bitch on her next season[1].   If on the return service the bitch births one puppy, the contract will be considered fulfilled.  If the bitch fails to conceive on the return service, you will be provided return service on the same bitch until a minimum of one puppy is birthed.  If other arrangements have not been made with the Stud Dog Owner, and the bitch is not bred on her next season or is bred to another Stud Dog on her next season, the Stud Service Fee is forfeited, and the contract is null and void. 

 

BITCH OWNER AGREES TO:

  1. Update the Stud Owner about the bitch’s progesterone levels during her season;

 

  1. Pay for the cost of collection and shipping of chilled extended or frozen semen;

 

  1. Pay the agreed Stud Service Fee and other applicable expenses (to include possible teaser fees and shipping fees) before the bitch is serviced;

 

  1. Notify Stud Dog Owner in writing, no later than 55 days after breeding, if no pregnancy results from the breeding.  Ultrasound and/or X-ray must be emailed to vbfkennel@gmail.com.  Failure to do so will result in no return service being provided;

 

  1. Keep the bitch properly confined following breeding to ensure no other dog could mate her accidentally before her season is complete;

 

  1. Not knowingly sell or transfer puppies resulting from this breeding to any person or firm connected with the business of resale or wholesale of dogs.

 

 

OTHER AGREEMENTS

Bitch Owner is responsible for all testing done to the bitch prior to and during breeding to assure the proper timing of said breeding.  If Bitch Owner is not willing to pay for progesterone testing, this should be stated ahead of time.  If this is the case, and the breeding does not result in puppies, the Stud Service Fee is forfeited, and no return service is offered.

By this contract, it is expressly agreed that the Stud Dog Owner is not obligated to sign the application for Litter Registration until and unless the Stud Service fee or other applicable expenses have been paid in full.

If for any reason, the Bitch Owner does not return this contract signed within five days of placing the deposit, the email delivery of the contract will serve as confirmation that the Bitch Owner agrees to the terms of this contract.
