Best Retrievers' Whelping Service Fees: 30% of total cost of the litter
Best Retrievers will collect the payments for each puppy as they are picked up by their new families. We will keep documentation of all expenses as they occur, and provide the female's owner with a check for the remaining monies, less the Best Retrievers' 30% whelping service fee.
Price of each puppy x Number of puppies whelped = A
A x 30% Best Retrievers' Whelping Service Fee = B
B - Puppy Expenses = Profit paid to Female's Owner
Profit of the litter will be paid to the Female's Owner by Best Retrievers when the last puppy has been picked up from Best Retrievers' facility.
Stud Service Fees:
Stud service fees are due to Sire's Owner at time of breeding, unless Sire's Owner has chosen "pick of the litter" as the desired form of payment.
If one of Best Retrievers' sires has been selected, the stud service fee will be added as an expense for the litter and will later be subtracted from the profit paid to owner.
Best Retrievers' will approve a breeding with a suggested stud who best compliments the strengths and weaknesses of the female.
Breeding will be performed at the Best Retrievers' facility, and the female and stud are sent home.
Prior to breeding, Sire's Owner and Female's Owner will each provide Best Retrievers with copies of the following:
A five generation pedigree
OFA and CERF reports
EIC, DD, CNM and PRA reports
If the results of the above genetic testings do not result in "Good," "Excellent," or "Clear" the breeding will not be approved by Best Retrievers.
The balance of stud fee must be paid in full before female is returned to owner after breeding has been completed. Unless one of Best Retrievers' studs are chosen. Female's owner is responsible for all testing on female prior to, and during breeding to assure the proper timing of said breeding. If breeding is not sucessful, a repeat breeding will be completed during the female's next heat.
Sire's owner retains the right to view the litter at 8 weeks of age and if desired, may substitute a pick of the litter puppy instead of the agreed upon stud fee.
Best Retrievers requests to be informed of a returned puppy for any reason. We will aid Female's Owner in finding a new home for the puppy in question.
It is the responsibility of the Female's Owner to keep Best Retrievers informed of the Female's general health, untrasounds or x-rays, or any health concerns which may arise during the pregnancy.
Approximately 45 days from time of breeding, the Female's Owner will take Female to the veterinarian and order an x-ray or ultrasound performed to confirm the pregnancy. This provides Best Retrievers an estimate number of puppies to be whelped.
A week before her due date, the Female's Owner will bring the Female to Best Retrievers' facility. Best Retrievers will provide the Female with a safe and loving environment until she is ready to be taken home. Drugs or supplements may be administered by Best Retrievers' Staff, but must be provided by Female's Owner or a veterinarian.
Best Retrievers offers constant monitoring for the Female and her puppies while awaiting her due date, during the whelping process and until she is safely home and all puppies have found their perfect homes. If problems should arise during the birth, and a veterinarian's help is sought, the female's owner will be held financially responsible.
