Canine Semen Services

We are a full-service canine semen bank with freezing, storing, and shipping services that are available for anyone desiring the ability to breed their Stud to dogs all over country and the world without shipping any animals. Frozen semen also makes it possible to breed a dog long beyond his lifetime.

Once frozen, the semen can be stored indefinitely in liquid nitrogen. The storage tanks require no electricity and are therefore not affected by power outages. It is also possible to ship semen in tanks by FedEx to locations all over the US and the world.

Thank you for choosing Warner Center Pet Clinic. I hope that this web site can assist you in answering some common questions regarding semen freezing requirements.

* We do not clone animals.

Q. What do I need to do to collect semen on my stud dog? 
A. That's an easy one! Just call one of our offices at the numbers listed below and we can make you an appointment.

Q. What will I need to bring to my appointment? 
A. You will need to bring the following:

  1. You are required to bring your AKC or other registration papers verifying that you are a current owner of the stud. (for unregistered dogs this does not apply)
  2. You will need a copy of your DNA Profile, or we can collect the DNA sample and send it in for an additional $50.
  3. Please print out a copy of the Semen Storage Agreement. You can read this and fill it out prior to your appointment in order to save time. Semen will not be collected without a signed contract.
  4. You will also need a current Brucellosis test.

Q. What if I want to send my stud with an agent for collection? 
A. Please provide that person with all the items above and payment. Please note that the semen contract MUST be signed by the STUD DOG OWNER. The semen will be collected and stored in Stud owners' name.

Q. Can I let someone else collect my stud and let them own the semen? 
A. Yes and No. Semen Ownership can be transferred to persons, not listed as an owner on the registration papers, by completing a Semen Usage Form signed by the owners listed on the registration papers. The semen will need to first be registered to the stud dog owner and then transferred to the new owner.

Q. Is there a cost for annual semen storage? 
A. For 2012, the annual storage fees are $75.00 per year.

Q. How do I arrange to ship my frozen semen? 
A. Frozen semen shipping should be planned ahead of time. Please remember that there are a limited number of shipping tanks available for use.


Planning ahead when planning to ship frozen semen is always the best plan. First, you will need to fill out a Semen Usage Form and a Frozen Semen Shipping Form available on the "Forms" page of our site. FAX the completed forms to the office at 818-710-9312 Attn: Greg

Please call and speak with Greg for semen transfers or shipping at 818-710-8528. He can also be reached by e-mail at (e-mail is not checked daily for this account).

There are substantial additional fees for rushed semen shipments, $100 for less than 48 hours and $200 for less than 24 hours. There is no guarantee that we will have a shipping tank available. However, we will do our best to accommodate all requests.

New Clients Receive $5.00 off first exam for each pet.
