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.
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.
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.
