Semen Freezing
The use of canine frozen semen has increased dramatically in recent years. As a result, top breeders are now considering frozen semen an integral part of a complete breeding program.

The are many advantages of frozen semen:

  •  Multiple matings from a single collection
  •  Breeding to an unavailable stud dog (geographic, ill, or deceased.)
  •  Long-distance and international breeding
  •  Increased gene pool
  •  More offspring from excellent studs
  •  Guarantee top-stud breeding availability to future generations.
  •  Preserve the genetic line you've worked so hard to develop.
  •  More revenue for your kennel
Fresh-Frozen Semen Collection and Shipping
  •  Excellent conception rates
  •  Allows for long-distance and international breedings
  •  Spreads your top bloodlines to otherwise inaccessible areas to improve the entire breed
Transcervical Endoscopic Insemination
An endoscope is used to locate the cervix and pass a catheter through it for intrauterine insemination. There is no need for anesthesia and surgery with this technique, which yields excellent conception rates when high quality chilled or frozen semen and a healthy bitch are used.

Surgical Insemination
During a short abdominal surgery, semen is directly injected into the uterus. This technique provides excellent conception rates when semen quality is low, when using low-dose frozen semen, or when the female has fertility problems related to the cervix.
