There are currently four accolades that Assured Breeders may qualify for:
- Breeding Experience Accolade - assigned to breeders who have bred at least five litters.
- Breed Club Accolade - assigned to breeders who are current members of one or more breed clubs (for each breed bred).
- Stud Book Accolade - assigned to breeders who have bred three or more dogs listed in the Kennel Club Stud Book.
- Accolade of Excellence - Nominations will normally come only from breed clubs and breeders will normally need to have bred five British titleholders (from any of the disciplines) and have had a successful visit from a Breeder Advisor before their nomination will be considered.
Assured Breeder Accolades appear for each breeder on the lists of Assured Breeders issued by the Kennel Club. Accolades also appear within the advertisements on the Find a Puppy service.
All accolades will be assigned by the Kennel Club, according to the information that we have on file, although we will rely on Assured Breeders to update the relevant information as necessary.
