If he is a good quality male, they will come to you. I did not offer my male at stud until he had titles (he has over 20 now), breed survey (which includes SchH title, OFAs, AD endurance test, BH obedience test, and show ratings), passed hip and elbow evaluations, and in addition did a full thyroid panel, DM test, and exam (including checking sperm count and motility) with a reproductive specialist. I don't advertise him other than him having a page on my web site (along with my rescue dogs) and people have asked to use him. We've done far, far, far fewer breedings than people have inquired about. You need to also be very discerning. The few we have done have been setup through people I've known through the years and met at various training clubs or events. Get your dog out their titling, competing, showing. The proof is in the pudding. If people are impressed they will find you and inquire about using him for stud.
