We are thinking of breeding from our lovely Labrador, Sam. He is really handsome and we would love one of his puppies. How do I find a person who has a bitch?

Sue Williams advises…

Stud dogs need to be exceptional examples of their breed and have superb temperaments. If Sam meets these criteria, it is important that you research his ancestry. You can do this and check health scores using the Kennel Club’s website.

If all this looks good, you will need to ensure Sam has had all the recommended health tests for his breed and passed them. Once you have done this, you can approach breeders and breed societies with his details. It isn’t as simple as just finding a bitch – she needs to be of the same excellent standard, have had excellent health test results and be genetically compatible
