For Shipped Semen –Progesterone test is required to identify exact day for breeding to take place.

Collection and shipping costs must be paid directly to our Reproductive Vet (Between $350-$445 due to increases in overnight shipping costs by carriers) and is due prior to the process being performed – Females MUST have a progesterone test completed to identify optimal breeding day. The collection will be delivered directly to your Vet (shipping info to be provided by customer, and customer is responsible for notifying their vet of the overnight AM delivery package to be delivered). The Collection and Shipping cost is non-refundable and in the event no puppies result from the procedure that TSL Service Fee of $500 would apply again in a 2nd attempt, however the Reproductive Vet Collection and Shipping costs would NOT apply. Please note, ONLY TCI or Surgical AI is approved as these both provide a 97% success rate.

Our Stud Service
Pricing - Please Note January 2021 Our Stud Fees will increase by $250 per Male.
Each of our Males are available for Stud Service - Pricing, DNA Health Certifications, OFA Certification, Pictures, and Descriptions may be found by clicking on the tab "Our Boys"
- Females must have the DNA Health Testing & their OFA Certification Complete.
- Females MUST have a Brucellosis test no older than 6 months in order to receive Live Breeding. AI breeding through our Reproductive Vet, Josey Ranch Pet Hospital in Carrolton Texas does not require a brucellosis test - however customer is responsible for all vet costs for the AI (TCI) procedure - cost is approximately $350.00
- Females must have a progesterone test completed that identifies the ideal day for breeding and breeding service will take place on that day. Bringing a female to us for stud service before or after the correct breeding date determined by a progesterone test is a waste of the customer's time and ours.
- in most cases TSL does not keep your female overnight. If you are from out of town we recommend staying at the La Quinta Inn in Decatur Tx which is pet friendly.
- Stud service includes 1 tie between our Stud and your female on the optimal breeding day identified in the required progesterone test. In the event the male and female are able to tie an additional time on the same day there is no additional cost. If a 2nd tie is requested on a subsequent day there is an additional charge of $100. Each time we have had 1 successful tie we have had litters from 6-13 puppies produced.
We submit All of Texas Star Labradors breeding dogs DNA to AKC Authorized Laboratories such as Embark, DDC, or Orivet. Texas Star Labradors carefully plans our breeding to ensure that our puppies are never effected by any of primary diseases associated with the Labrador breed. These include but are not limited to EIC, PRA, CNM, DM, Cystinuria, HNPK. By testing all of our adults we can identify if any of our Labradors are carriers of any of these diseases to ensure that they are not breed to another carrier resulting in effected puppies.
