Breeder Assessment Visits
The purpose of visiting breeders is simply to ensure compliance with the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme (KCABS), to offer guidance on how the scheme can benefit the breeder and to also to give an opportunity to discuss any issues face to face with one of our Regional Breeder Assessors (RBA).
ABS Seminar – Saturday, 13th January 2018
We are hosting an Assured Breeder Scheme Seminar on Saturday, 13th January 2018. The seminar is open to all – both existing members and those considering joining - and is an opportunity for like-minded breeders to develop their understanding of the ABS and contribute to its future.
