Assured Breeder Scheme Seminar


About the Assured Breeder Scheme

  • The Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme promotes good breeding practice and aims to work together with breeders and puppy buyers to force irresponsible breeders out of business. 
  • There are set requirements that Assured Breeders must agree to follow, which encourage the breeding of healthy, and well-adjusted puppies. Breeders nationwide are joining the Assured Breeder Scheme to demonstrate their commitment to responsible breeding.

"I decided to join the Assured Breeder Scheme because I wanted the confidence and the reassurance that I was doing all of the right things by my girls and the breed"

"As a novice breeder, it was reassuring to be able to tick the boxes and to have access to help and guidance."

"I was proud of my reputation as a breeder [...] to show the public that good breeders are serious when it comes to health and welfare of our dogs and puppies."
