If the same stud dog is not available, Owner will be entitled to one breeding, at no charge, to another stud dog currently owned by Stevens of comparable quality. If Bitch Owner desires to breed to a stud dog for which the fee is higher than the one the bitch was originally bred to, Owner may do so by paying the difference between the two fees.

B.  If the Bitch Owner does not desire a repeat breeding, Stevens will offer Bitch Owner one (1) puppy from a future litter, to be mutually agreed upon by Bitch Owner and Stevens, of a quality comparable to the price of the stud fee. Every effort will be made to select a puppy that meets with Bitch Owner’s approval. Bitch Owner will be responsible for all shipping charges, if applicable.

Bitch Owner may request the repeat breeding be done with a bitch other than the one listed in this contract, subject to approval of the substitute bitch by Stevens.

In the event of illness or injury, Stevens will attempt to contact Bitch Owner immediately for instructions. If Owner is not available, Stevens will use their best judgment as to whether veterinarian assistance is needed and if so, will select a veterinarian and take the Bitch for treatment. Bitch Owner will promptly reimburse Stevens for all veterinarian expenses incurred on behalf of Bitch. Bitch Owner agrees to release and hold Stevens harmless for any illness or injury (including death) that occurs while Bitch is in possession of Stevens.

Seven (7) days board for the bitch is included in the stud fee. If it is necessary for the bitch to stay longer, Bitch Owner will pay Stevens $5.00 per day board.
