THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON WE ENGAGE A PARTNER FAMILY: THE SELECTED DOG IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL REPRESENTATION OF THE BREED THAT WE WANT TO CONTINUE HIS/HER LINE IN OUR BREEDING PROGRAM AND HAVE THE OPTION TO SHOW HIM/HER TO CHAMPIONSHIP.
THE SECOND REASON FOR A PARTNER FAMILY: WE WANT THE DOG TO HAVE A LOVING HOME AND FAMILY TO CALL HIS/HER OWN. THE DOG LIVES WITH YOU AND HE IS YOUR PET/DOG AND WE WILL ENTER INTO A CONTRACT WITH YOU THAT SUPPORTS YOURS AND OUR INTERESTS.
FORESTWOOD RETAINS ALL REGISTRIES ON THE DOG UNTIL THE CONTRACT IS COMPLETE. THIS IS A PARTNERSHIP AND AS SUCH WE REQUIRE A FIRM UNDERSTANDING OF THE TERMS AND WHAT A PARTNER FAMILY ENTAILS. WE CURRENTLY HAVE PARTNER FAMILIES WILLING TO DISCUSS THE PROGRAM FROM THEIR VIEWPOINT.
The way we have structured our PARTNER FAMILY CONTRACT is to be beneficial for both you the buyer and ourselves as breeders. There are many expenses that are associated with raising a show/breeding dogs.
The PARTNER FAMILY PROGRAM cost is the same as a regular pet dog, $2,000.00.
For a FEMALE PARTNER FAMILY AGREEMENT - Forestwood would have the option to show the bitch and we ask that we have her whelp two litters for us. All regular vet bills will be your responsibility. Any other testing will be the responsibility of Forestwood MAS. The bitch would be required to be spayed and the responsibility would be on the PARTNER FAMILY to pay for the spay. Compensation would be in the amount of $1,200.00.
For a MALE PARTNER FAMILY AGREEMENT - Forestwood would have the option to show the dog. Since the time factor required is less than a female the compensation would be $600.00 given back to the partner family once the contract is complete. We would ask that the male dog be kept intact for a maximum of 5-7 years and he would be used for stud to our own females and possibly outside approved females. The dog would then be neutered and this would be the responsibility of the partner family. Again, regular vet bills will be your responsibility and other testing will fall to Forestwood MAS.
