                      The Importance Of The Stud Dog

One half of the breeding equation is the stud dog. Many times in breeding, the emphasis is on the bitch with an assumption that finding a breeding partner for her is relatively easy.  This is faulty reasoning on many levels.  Management of the stud dog is time consuming and involves as much responsibility as is placed upon the bitch owner.  Decisions about health testing, how often to allow the stud to be used, whether to accept bitches, store frozen semen or to allow natural breedings are just some of the issues stud dog owners face. In addition, a criterion must be established as to what constitutes an acceptable bitch for each male offered. The execution of a stud dog contract with each breeding is useful for the protection of all parties involved.

At Casey Kerry Blue Terriers, we define a male as a stud dog only if he is proven and has something to contribute to the breed. An impressive win record and famous dogs in his pedigree make for ringside bragging rights but don't always indicate his worth as a stud dog. Such worth is only proven over time.

We currently offer three males for consideration to interested bitch owners.  We will be happy to discuss each one and what he has contributed to previous litters. Every male is shown below with examples of puppies he has sired. Most of the example dogs shown were not bred by Casey Kerry Blue Terriers. Click on a picture to view the pedigree of each dog, or in the case of littermates, only one pedigree will be shown.
