Our policies are set in place to not only protect our dogs but yours as well
1. Lockins Take Priority-
The date in which you leave the deposit, sign the contract and sign the agreements set you in priority. If someone finishes their lock-in process before you…they will be given priority over you in the event that their dog is ready at the same time. So we recommend locking in early.
2. Lockins “lock” the Pricing-
When you lock in our studs for their introductory pricing or special pricing- you are guaranteeing that price. If the price goes up- your price will still be honored.
3. Let us know Day 1
Let us know Day 1 when your dog goes in heat…not first day of progesterone- day 1 of blood. This allows us to add you to our calendar and help track the heat.
4. Let us know EVERY progesterone number- regardless how low
EVERYTIME you do progesterone- shoot us a message and give us that progesterone number (please contact us via text, instagram or email. By providing with us these numbers it will allow us help answer any progesterone questions you have.
5. When to Pull Progesterone
We recommend (and require) progesterone be pulled between Day 5-7…if you wait to pull progesterone later than this you risk missing the heat or missing the LH surge/ovulation. Let us know the number and we can give you our recommendation on when to pull again. The earlier and more frequent the better.
6. Dont Assume Ovulation
NEVER assume ovulation happens at 5…we are more concerned with the rises or “surge” than we are on the number. If your dog is rising 1 point a day and reaches a 5 then just keeps rising 1 point…that wasnt ovulation. Ovulation is more about the jump in numbers vs the singular number.
7. Give us numbers by 12:00 PM Arizona Time
We need to know progesterone numbers as early as possible. This allows us to plan for the unexpected. We cannot guarantee same day shipments if numbers are given after this time. Lets make this process as stress-free as possible.
8. We don’t use a vet for collections
Veterinary Hospitals are where typically sick animals are. This exposes our Frenchies unnecessarily to anything that may be at the vet hospital, we only utilize the vet for c-sections, puppy checks and shots, and of course sick animals. We are happy to send you video of the collection under the microscope so you can see the concentration and quality.
We REQUIRE that you pull progesterone on your female- we will not do breedings or ship semen based on days in heat or how your female is acting. We will only send semen based on progesterone.
10. Clinic Breedings ONLY
For those that choose to come to Arizona and have us do the breedings we have purchased an off site clinic location that we use ONLY for breedings. We also sanitize between breedings. We will collect our stud in our collection room, we are happy to video chat with you during this process so you can see that its fresh and then we will bring it directly to you at the clinic and do the AI free of charge for you.
We understand that you may want to see the stud- we are happy to bring them to the clinic for you to see in person after they have cooled off and calmed down. We do have again a no contact policy- so the stud can be viewed from the vehicle but will not be out.
We understand that this may not be industry standard (yet) but this is our policy to keep not only our dogs but also yours healthy and safe.
We will show you and look under the microscope of every semen collection BEFORE we put it in your female. We will let you see the semen quality before the AI is started. We have all the tools to do the AI- if you would like to do the AI yourself please let us know are we are happy to supply you with the equipment necessary.
All of our AI equipment (pipettes, lube, syringes) are brand new, in packaging and unused- this minimizes the risk of pyometra and introducing bacteria into your female.
11. In Person Breeding Hours
We are flexible on our hours as we understand you are coming from a long ways for these breedings…but please understand we have a family. We would like to keep the hours between 10am-6pm when possible. Please communicate with us- we can be flexible and make hours work but please try to stay between these hours when possible. We spend our time on the AIs- please plan to be there at least 30 minutes for the process to be completed.
