I would like to stud my Presa Canario

Hi there, I am new to this forum and could not figure out how to start a new thread so I guess I can do it here, any tips are welcome. Anyway, I have a beautiful boy named Odinn Vak Nolan, he is a full blooded Presa Canario, he is registered with the International Canine Registry and also have his certified Pedigree. His grandparents were hand picked from Spain for their awesome temperament. I have his lineage all the way back to his great great grandparents. He is also a member of the Dogo Canario Club of America. The only reason I have not neutered him is because he is such a great dog and has such an awesome blood line I would like to see his blood line continue. I was curious how much would I charge to stud him, I of course would make sure the bitch is as worthy of breeding as he is. I payed quite a bit for him, and to my prior knowledge most of the time the stud fee is the cost of one dog?????? So should I be charging close to $3,000 to stud him? Thanks for any response and help with this question. Who knows I may not even stud him but if I do decide to I would like to know what would be a reasonable charge for it. Thanks guys, have an awesome day. Wish I could figure out how to posts pics of him, hes gorgeous black brindle, 14 months old and 145lbs.

Have you done any of the health screenings for these conditions that occur in your breed? Particularly hip dysplasia? Dogo Canario Club of America -- Health

Are you committed to being a responsible breeder, which your breed's club lays out here: Dogo Canario Club of America -- Guide to Breeder Selection and also explained in this thread and the links within it: https://www.dogforum.com/new-addition...reeders-88226/

Have you read through this article? Dogo Canario Club of America -- So you want to be a breeder? Page 2

Have you successfully shown or worked him in any venue? What specific traits are you hoping to produce and what are your goals for breeding? How will you evaluate what females he will breed to? Are you willing to be responsible for every puppy produced for their lifetime, like taking them back and/or rehoming them, in case the female's owners can't?

Being purebred, registered, and having a good bloodline do not necessarily make a breeding quality dog. Having a "good temperament" is only a part of it as well. You need to be dedicated to keeping the puppies out of shelters and out of the hands of bybers, you need to make sure your dog is healthy through more than just a vet check, you need to make sure your dog is structurally correct for his breed, you need to make sure he is competing, showing, or working in some venue and doing well at it, etc. If everyone bred their "pedigreed dog with nice temperaments," pet overpopulation in the US would be even worse than it already is.

That explained, if you've done all that it takes to ensure your dog is actually breeding quality, to determine the stud fee, find out what the owners of similarly qualified dogs of your breed charge and then reduce it considerably. You have no idea what your dog will actually produce yet, and if money isn't a concern, which it shouldn't be, it doesn't really matter what you charge. A good place to start would be your dog's breeder--if it was a responsible one (and if not, I'd be looking even harder at your dog to decide if he should be bred)--in fact, if you got your dog from a responsible breeder, said breeder should always be willing/able to help/support you with any of your questions/endeavors.

Thank you

Wanted to take a moment and thank you for your response. I guess I should start by saying the least of my concerns is how much to charge and I should not have used that as my primary question. Money is not the issue at all when it comes to studding my pup and I was really just trying to get my feet wet seeing I am new to this forum, which by the way I really like.

So I guess my first step would be to go and talk to the breeder I got him from and get some more information, and also there are some other highly reputable breeders in my area, Atlanta, that I should go and talk to and see if I am starting down the right path at this. And yes, my main concern is my pups health and making sure that if i do this that I am doing it responsibly and that my pup is worth breeding. The last thing I want is more unwanted puppies out there in the world, there are enough of them as it is.

And yes if I do this I would definitely be a part of placing the puppies in good homes and would certainly keep the pups with me until that happened if the females owners could not.

Like I said I am just hunting for more information right now and you have my word I will not do this if it is not the way to go, ie just for a stud fee. I have plenty of time and right now am just enjoying my pup to the fullest.

Once again thank you so much for all the valuable information, take care and thanks for welcoming me to this awesome forum.
