-Imports must be approved before they can be sold or used
-All imports must be purebred
-All imports must only have traits (physical and behavioral) seen in the breed
-Each user is restricted to creating 6 imports per month, and may only keep two of them. Users may buy as many imports from other users as they wish.
-Imports may only have 10 Stat points, with each Stat having at least one point. Extras may be allocated however you like. Each group (Herding, Working, Toy) has an extra point allocated to a specific stat, and a removed point to a specific stat.
Working - +1 Strength, -1 Agility
Herding - +1 Agility, -1 Strength
Sporting - +1 Obedience, -1 Conformation
Non-Sporting - +1 Conformation, -1 Agility
Toy - +1 Conformation, -1 Strength
Hound - +1 Tracking, -1 Obedience
Terrier - +1 Agility, -1 Obedience
Why do stats matter? They make a difference as to how well your dog places in competitions. And Conformation stats affect how “good” your dog looks. If Conformation is at one, your dog will have at least one feature that would disqualify them or severely deduct Points in conformation competitions. If Conformation is under five, they will have at least one trait that would score them a deduction according to their breed. Conformation does not matter in anything but Conformation competitions.
-All litters must be approved before they can be sold or used.
-Pups may only have traits seen in either parent (Physical and behavioral)
-Pups must share the Stats of their parents (You may pick and choose from the parent stats to get higher scored)
-Maximum litter size is six.
-One litter per dam per month. Sires have a limit of three per month.
-Two dogs from different users are allowed to breed, however both users must agree.
-There will be one Pick Of The Litter per litter, with two extra Stat Points, allocated to wherever you like.
-Dogs related by less than five generations are not allowed to breed. (You can breed cousins fifth removed and up, but not any closer relatives.)
.: How To Create Imports:.
Creating imports is relatively simple. Just come up with and draw up to six purebred dogs, following the rules of both Imports and the breed. Only the creator of the breed is permitted to create imports if the breed is closed, unless otherwise noted. Anyone may create imports for AKC breeds and open creative breeds. All imports must be approved by an admin or mod before they can be sold or used.
.: How to breed dogs :.
If both the sire and dam belong to you, simply create a litter of up to six puppies, following the Breeding Rules. Like imports, they must be approved by an admin or made rather before you can sell them, age them up, or use them. If the sire or dam belongs to a different user, you may request permission to breed your dog and their dog, and if they approve the user with the dam will create the litter, following the kennel breeding rules of the one who received the request, not the one who made it.
.: Selling A Dog :.
Once litters and imports have been approved, they can be sold. Keep in mind the stats of the dogs you’re selling and what they cost you to get, and price appropriately. You may sell your dogs for art, loves/favorites, Deviantart Points, other dogs, or any currency deemed appropriate. Be cautious when trading or selling, as SKC does not take responsibility for scammers.
Adult dogs can be sold, however it is requested that you let a moderator know who you sold them to and for what price when the transaction is finished. Please keep all kennel information up to date.
