The stud dog has special requirements and it is important that he is healthy and keen in order to perform at his best and produce the most viable sperm. His emotional well being is just as important as his physical and he should be kept in a situation which replicates as much as possible a natural one. This is to say he should be around bitches regularly and not isolated most of the time except when expected to serve.
A good stud dog should be of undoubted stamina, bred from a line of long-lived bulldogges. He should be from winning dogs and should be producing winning stock. He should have nice size, but should not be overweight.He should also have plenty plenty of vigor, not lacking a good healthy energy level. At last but definitely not least he must excel in the points the bitch mostly lacks.
