Guidelines for Stud Owners

  1. No member should offer at stud any dog that is unsound physically or temperamentally, or that does not reasonably conform to the AKC breed standard as endorsed by the Clumber Spaniel Club of America. Hip and elbow X-rays, eye examination by a certified ophthalmologist, and any other pertinent genetic tests should be completed and the results disclosed to the owner of the bitch. Genetic disease may be life-threatening or life-altering (hip dysplasia, PRA, cataracts, cardiomyopathy, epilepsy, etc.) or not (overshot or undershot jaw, entropion, cryptorchidism, hypothyroidism, umbilical hernia, etc.). Regardless of the degree of severity, any genetic disease for which the stud is a known suspected carrier should be disclosed to the owner of the bitch.
  2. If the dog has not previously been bred, has not produced a live litter, or has had breeding problems in the past, such information should be provided to the bitch owner before breeding takes place.
  3. The owner of the stud dog should not accept a bitch for service if the owner of the stud dog is not in a position to maintain the bitch in a safe and healthy manner. Bitches should be bred only to the stud dog specified by her owner unless both parties in writing agree upon an acceptable substitution.
  4. The owner of a stud dog shall not agree to provide stud service for any bitch owned, leased or held by any commercial enterprise or by any person who does not agree to support the CSCA Guidelines for Breeders and Owners of Clumber Spaniels.
