Can you collect dogs sperm and cold ship like you can on horses. I have some people interested in breeding to my dog but they live in RH and I live in NC
Hi Appcrazy,

You can certainly perform artificial insemination with chilled and even frozen sperm though the methods are different with each. The following sites go over the processes in detail. Be sure and read them all as some have information that is not on the other pages.

The first site gives an address where containers can be purchased. Hope this helps.

Reply to Jane Lefler's Post: How much cost is involved in this process and can a beginner do it or should I find a local vet that does this type of thing
Appcrazy,

Each vet is different in what they charge for services. I know a vet that only charges $80 which includes the shipping box and extender. However, I have also heard of vets charging a lot more. It is best to contact the vet as far as an estimate goes. Most breeders I know do it themselves. However, if you are in a time crunch with trying to time it right for the female on the receiving end, a vet would be your best bet. If you have time, you could try some practice runs in advance so you are better able to judge if you can do this or need the vet.

I more questions where do you get the collection glove? Is it something that you have to purchase from a vet or can you get this online somewhere.
