I have a well behaved and trained Mini Aussie. He is about a year and I am thinking about studding him out. He has gorgeous color which is not normal, but is unregistered. So what is a good price to put on him?
Note from Anton: The question you should be asking is whether or not you should be breeding him at all. Based on the information provided I can't recommend it. Breeders will tell you that breeding is a very involved process with a lot of expenses. Breeders will study the lineage going back for many generations with the goal of strengthening the breed and eliminating genetic disorders. Reputable breeders will only want to work with you if you can help them meet the goals of their breeding program and they will require genetic testing and proven quality with titles to back it up.
