Have you had all his hips scored/ tests ect.
These need t be done before anyone will use him as a stud

Gosh Issy!
thats a hard question & I really have no idea - but I'd probably talk to the breeder you got him from, as they should be able to assess if he has right traits (looks, personality, health etc.) to be a suitable dad.
I think you'd also need to get quite a few health checks done - hips, elbows, eyes, etc.

And if he's your first ever dog, you need to demonstrate to the owners of his prospective wives that you are confident & able enough to handle their cherised dood :shock:

There are some very knowledgable breeders on this site who'll give you some good advice.

I'd be scared to death :shock: :D

I'm planning Bailey (20 months) as a Stud dog and have him booked in for his hip scoring in February and as our local vet does not do eye testing I have contacted our nearest vet who does this (some 100 miles away) and he is on their waiting list to see a guy who tests eyes (Tony Wall??)

Only once his scores come back will I seriously consider using him as a Stud and then I think I would offer him FOC until he proves himself :wink:

best advice is speak to the breeder you brought him from, you will also need his full pedigree for both sides, plus he should really be Optigen tested as he is a Miniature Labradoodle and PRCD is in both Labradors and Miniature Poodle lines and even if he does not have it, if he carrys it and is put to another dog that carrys it they could produce blind pups, but if all of his tests are good and every thing else ticks the right boxes I may be interested in using him in the future, why don't you post a picture of him?

Lisa got it absolutely right, PRA dna testing is simple and cost effective and proves the safety (as regards eyes) of your dog. Breeding blind dogs once was a risk that breeders had to take, it is inexcusable now that it can be avoided by a simple test.
The Kc have a relatively new scheme for registered breeds

Samples for the non registered breeds can be sent off by your vet when the other health testing is done. PRA could be eliminated by testing and that would be really splendid.
ALWAYS visit the premises and see mum with pup. There are no excuses!
