Should the dog not have his/her health clearances by 2.5 years of age, or the dog has not passed all components of health clearances, the dog must be spayed/neutered by 31 months of age, regardless of any achieved titles. NO DOG WILL BE BRED without breeders full knowledge, or before they are two years of age. Dogs must pass all health clearances prior to breeding with no less than 2 titles, and not before the non-breeding contract has been officially lifted with the CKC papers. Dogs of opposite sex for breeding must ALWAYS be approved by the breeder first, and breeder must ALWAYS be aware of breeding plans and estrus cycles.
