Posting your for stud ad

The following is a guide on how you can post your advert. Stud ads run on a monthly basis and cost just €14.99 per month or €150 per year. Each month your ad is renewed it will go back up to the top of the listings. Breeding dogs is not something to be taken likely, and we recommend you fully research and discuss with your vet any plans you have for studding your dog.

Note: Your stud dog has to be over 12 months old before you advertise their services on dogs.ie.

We recommend that you have your dog health screened for typical breed illness and hereditary disease disposition and genetic characteristics, to insure that any offspring produced as given the best chance of being healthy (for example PRA Clear). Your vet can advise you about how best to test / screen for these diseases & illnesses, some of them are done with a simple blood draw or an X-Ray.

Depending on breed, stud dogs tend to be in the prime for breeding between 18 months and 4 years old (or 5 depending on the dogs size). As dogs age, much like humans, their sperm quality lessens, and thus the ability to impregnate a bitch. As dogs approach 10 years old most stud dogs don’t produce much sperm that’s capable of impregnating a bitch.

If you are planning on breeding and having the puppies registered with the Kennel Club or Irish Kennel Club, please check their rules around breeding & registration requirements. Both have limits around number of litters that can be produced, and age limits for example.

Extending your advert

Stud ads are billed month to month. Each month your ad will renew automatically and a charge will go on the card we have on file for you. If you are still happy with the ad being on the site and advertising your stud’s services for the upcoming month, there is no action to be done on your part. When the ad is renewed it will once again go back to the top of the stud ad listings.

Note: We hate surprises, you will get an email notification 7 days before your subscription is renewed about the planned charge.
