5.) Bitch owner warrants that this Bitch has not been exposed to any other  Stud Dog from the start of her heat cycle.

Copy of this contract must be furnished to Stud Dog owner prior to first mating taking place.  Furthermore, Bitch owner agrees to sell any puppy with a disqualifying fault per the AKC standard, on an AKC limited registration.  For Bitch owners residing in Canada, pups must be sold on "non-breeding" contracts, which can be lifted once pups grow into dogs worthy of breeding.

5.) Bitch owner agrees to assume responsibility for any resultant pups for their lifetimes and agrees to accept any puppy that is returned.  Bitch owner further agrees to notify Stud Dog owner of any puppy, which  results from  this breeding, that cannot be kept by it's original owner.  In such cases, Stud Dog owner is entitled to the "first right of refusal" in the case that the Bitch owner or Breeder cannot keep the puppy.      
6.) The owner of the stud will appraise the offspring of this breeding for the owner of the bitch at no charge when the puppies are six weeks of age if they are within 25 miles. (over 25miles and bitch owner will be responsible for gas.) The owner of the bitch shall make an advance appointment for this service.

7.) The owner of the stud will, as a matter of courtesy only, refer prospective puppy purchasers to the owner of the bitch when the puppies are at least seven weeks old.                                                                                                                           

Furthermore, Stud Dog owner reserves the right to deny any breeder or bitch for any reason.  In the case that the breeding has previously been approved, Stud Dog owner also reserves the right to later refuse any bitch that is aggressive to any person while attempting to breed naturally or artificially or whose breeder is found to not be in good standing with the American Kennel Club and Canadian Kennel Club.  In either case, full stud fee, less $200 for expenses, will be refunded.

In breeding animals, there is always a risk that one may be injured during the process.  Bitch owner agrees to hold the stud dog harmless from any liability or damage.  In addition, the Bitch owner understands that the Stud Dog owner accepts no liability for the actions of this Bitch while in their care, including but not limited to personal injury or property damage.
