The Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme promotes good breeding practice aims to work together with breeders and buyers to force irresponsible breeders, or puppy farmers, out of business

Breeders nationwide are joining the Assured Breeder Scheme to show their commitment to responsible breeding. There are set requirements that Kennel Club Assured Breeders must agree to follow, which encourage the breeding of healthy, and well adjusted puppies.

In return breeders are able to use the scheme literature and logo to promote their litters. The annual membership entitles breeders to use the online Kennel Club Find a Puppy Service free of charge and will highlight litters to puppy buyers as being bred by an Assured Breeder. Assured Breeders also gain prioritised access to additional advice and information from the Kennel Club's Health and Breeder Services Department.

UKAS accreditation

We are 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 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.
