Tasha Chasteen of Chasteen’s Adorabulls has agreed to provide stud services to Dam Owner and their female.
The stud fee for "Stud's Name" will be $______ which is to be paid ½ at the time semen is shipped in the amount of $______ (plus shipping costs) and the other ½ in the amount of $______ before your litter is registered, by or before 6 wks of age.
If the stud fee balance is not paid by 6 weeks of age there will be a $250 additional fee to be paid before we will register your litter. If the stud fee is not paid by 8 wks of age there will be a $500 additional fee to be paid before we will register your litter. For each 14 days past 8 weeks of age there will be an additional $250 additional fee to be paid before we will register your litter!
If this female is co-owned both/all parties must be listed in this agreement. We will not register any litters that do not belong to the person(s) listed in this agreement.
Dam Owner will notify Tasha Chasteen at the first sign their female is entering her heat cycle.
For the health and safety of our males and other dogs: #1 We do not allow natural ties. #2 We will allow a side by side no contact a.i. if the dam owner chooses to meet for breeding vs. shipping. #3 We do not house outside females for breeding. #4 We do not allow outside dogs on our property at all! #5 We can perform the a.i. for the dam owner if requested in advance so that we have supplies on hand when we meet. We offer this service at no additional cost.
Dam Owner agrees that if Tasha Chasteen, of Chasteen’s Adorabulls, is requested to perform the a.i. on said female Tasha Chasteen is not responsible for any medical expenses related to infections such as pyometra or any vaginitis related issues. We only use brand new unopened supplies and your female should come to us clean and bathed as well as proper care following the insemination should be taken to limit/[prevent contact with bacteria and other pathogens which may lead to infection.
Collection and overnight shipping fees, if needed, will be $250 per requested shipment, which is to be paid by Dam Owner. This is for standard overnight shipping. Depending on the area you live in that is typically around noon – 2 p.m. delivery time Mon-Fri. Saturday deliver is usually very limited with 1-2 delivery options.
If you need the semen delivered 1st thing in the morning, if that option is available for your area, there is an additional fee of $75 for the FedEx 1st overnight delivery option.
**** Dam Owner understands that in order to receive semen shipped for next day delivery progesterone results MUST be received no later than 2:00 p.m. CENTRAL TIME MONDAY-FRIDAY, and no later than 10 a.m. CENTRAL time on Saturday for Monday delivery. ****
Overnight delivery is available Tuesday – Saturday.
There is no shipping or delivery available on Sundays.
***So, if you want/need semen on a Monday it has to be shipped out on Saturday.***
Tasha Chasteen will provide up to 2 shipments per breeding. We can split the semen for 2 breedings per shipment if requested to do so. Each requested shipment is to be paid by Dam Owner.
Progesterone results received after the times listed above will result in a delay in shipping of semen. So, please make sure you have spoken with your vet and that they understand the importance of getting your progesterone appointment as early as possible. If your vet uses a send out lab make sure you have them call the following morning to remind the lab of the importance of the time in order to ship semen to you.

Dam Owner agrees that once the semen is shipped, Tasha Chasteen, of Chasteen’s Adorabulls, has fulfilled her end of the contract agreement for providing a semen collection and overnight shipping. There will be NO REFUND of shipping or stud fees if the shipping company does not deliver at the time/date promised. *** The stud owner has no control over the packages arrival time or condition at the time of arrival. Therefore, we offer no refunds for shipping or stud fee due to courier service errors. The package may arrive later than the scheduled time, or it may be lost. For this reason we recommend always having a backup stud that is local to you. FedEx generally deliver as promised but they have been known to deliver later than expected and they do lose packages on rare occasions typically during bad weather.***
As long as progesterone testing is done prior to requesting the shipment of semen and the dam does not take or carry her pregnancy to term, Tasha Chasteen will offer ONE free re-breeding within the following 12 months. Collection and shipping fees are to be paid by Dam Owner.
We do NOT offer any re-breeds on missed breedings if progesterone testing is not done! If you use target tests or breed only by cytology or just guessing certain days to breed there will be NO re-breed for missed breedings! So please find a vet or breeder who offers progesterone testing for accuracy of ovulation timing and shipping of semen. We want our studs to have a successful track record and that means your female getting pregnant is important to us! Please don’t waste our time or yours by not doing progesterone testing.
Dam Owner agrees that 3 or more puppies born and surviving past 14 days of age will be considered a litter and stud services complete. Dam Owner is required to notify stud owner when the pups are born and how many males/females and photo or video or the litter. If 2 puppies or less are born or no surviving puppies past 14 days of age the stud owner, Tasha Chasteen, will offer ONE re-breed within the following 12 months as long as progesterone testing is completed prior to shipment of semen. If Dam Owner chooses not to do the re-breed within the following 12 months this contract will be considered fulfilled by both parties and the stud owner, Tasha Chasteen, will not owe another breeding to Dam Owner.
Pups that pass before 14 days of age: photo/video proof of deceased pup(s) will be required to be provided to the stud owner. In any situation where neglect is clearly this reason for the death of the pups there will be no rebreed provided. Examples of neglect: Mother left unsupervised and kills the pups, pups are killed by another dog/animal on the property, and clearly malnourished/sickly pups that did not receive proper vet care such as parasite treatments or early intervention before they become critical.
If only one puppy is born (singleton), Dam Owner, has the option to choose not to rebreed and then the ½ stud fee paid at the time semen was shipped will be considered payment in full of stud services since our contract guarantee is for 3 puppies we will except 50% of the stud fee for singletons.
***$500 lock-in fees are not refunded in this case. If the stud fee was paid in full prior to breeding then rebreed is the only option as no refunds will be given in this case.
If for any reason the stud, “Stud’s Name”, should die or become sick/injured prior to stud services taking place the stud fee will be transferred to another male owned/co-owned by Tasha Chasteen. The stud fee paid is the amount that will be transferred towards another stud. If Dam Owner chooses to use a stud with a higher fee the difference is to be paid prior to the litter being registered by or before 6 wks of age.
If for any reason the dam, owned by Dam Owner, is to die or become sick/injured and un-breedable prior to stud services taking place, or dies during pregnancy/ c-section, or this is the final breeding for said female, this breeding may be transferred to another approved female owned by Dam Owner.
Dam Owner will have 12 months from the date this contract was entered to use the stud service to “Stud’s Name”.
