Advantages of Using Cooled, Shipped Semen & Artificial Insemination

January 29, 2011

Puppychase Kennels has been breeding with cooled shipped semen for many years with great success. There are advantages of using this option for both the stud and bitch owner. We offer cooled, shipped semen from all our studs.


For the bitch owner

  • No need to ship the bitch to the stud. This is especially crucial when the weather is too hot or too cold, or if you have a high-stress dame who does not fare well when shipping by air. It is also less costly to ship the semen than it is the bitch.
  • Unlimited choice of studs from which to choose. You no longer need to be restricted by geographical location, which opens up a wider field for your pedigree. Now it is easier to breed to a stud that will improve upon your dame.
  • The stud’s show schedule doesn’t interfere with breeding. Even if the stud is not home, he can be collected and the ejaculate shipped to you.
  • Less worry for you about the health and well-being of your bitch.
  • Behavioral problems of the bitch do not interfere with breeding.
  • Less risk of sexually transmitted disease.

For the stud owner

  • More bitches available to improve upon your stud’s pedigree – allowing you to choose dames based on breed standards rather than geography.
  • Your stud’s show schedule does not have to be interrupted, as may happen for natural breeding.
  • When breeding by AI, semen quality and quantity can be checked whenever a collection is performed. Thus, you can monitor the reproductive status of your stud and notice potential problems immediately.
  • Behavioral problems of the stud do not interfere with breeding.
  • Less risk of sexually transmitted disease.
