We have put a lot of effort into obtaining a stable of exceptional males which we breed almost exclusively to our beautiful females. Each of our males has a number of champions in his ancestry (often from Europe, primarily Hungary and Russia) and are excellent examples of the French Bulldog in head structure, overall conformation, health, and temperament.
Although we retire our females when they are young (generally 3 to 4 years of age) after having an average of 3 litters, our males are generally much older, when they are no longer fertile or when they no longer fit into our breeding program, at which point we find good homes for them.
We at BlueHaven have worked very hard over the years to obtain the highest quality males possible, so that their excellent genetics will be passed down through succeeding generations. Our primary concerns are health, temperament, conformation, size, and, finally, color genetics. Early on, we purchased some males from other well-established breeders, but these days almost all of our studs are from our own lines, and we will continue to hold back exceptional males based on our needs. We will only introduce new blood when necessary to meet our breeding needs.
The main thrust of our business is to produce the highest quality French Bulldog puppies possible, and, while studding our males is not a major focus for BlueHaven, we will provide fresh semen or fresh chilled semen for approved females.
If you live close enough to our home in Tremonton, just northwest of Brigham City, UT, we will artificially inseminate your female with fresh semen for just the stud fee. We expect that you will have your girl progesterone tested and we will breed her twice, the first time a couple of days after her ovulation date, and then a couple of days later.
We can also ship fresh chilled semen to you for an additional fee of $300, which will include vials for two separate inseminaitons. We have had good success with this system, which is on a par with fresh semen. We ship the semen overnight by UPS to arrive the next day. To date, all our samples have arrived with excellent motility.
We require 50% of the stud fee to be paid up-front, along with the shipping fee if applicable, with the remainder due before the litter is registered. Under the best of circumstances, even with fresh semen, a failure rate of around 10% to 25% is to be expected, generally because the girl does not drop eggs or has some kind of medical issue (assuming that progesterone testing confirms the proper breeding dates). If your girl does not take, we will provide new semen without additional up-front cost, excluding the shipping fee.
