The Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme promotes good breeding practice and, as a breeder, you may wish to consider joining. There are set requirements that Assured Breeders must agree to follow, which encourage the breeding of healthy, well-adjusted puppies. In return, Assured Breeders may use the scheme literature and logo on their website to promote their breeding.

UKAS accreditation

The Kennel Club is the only organisation accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to certify dog breeders, under the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme. This means that the Kennel Club is recognised as an impartial and competent inspector by the government's sole national accreditation body. This gives the puppy buying public additional confidence that Kennel Club Assured Breeders are committed to meeting and maintaining high standards for caring for the health and welfare of their puppies and breeding bitches, and are the best point of contact for buying a healthy, happy puppy.
