The Kennel club assured breeder scheme, has been developed by the Kennel club to give a trade mark stamp if you like of those breeders who are going above and beyond for the welfare of their dogs and puppies. So the Kennel club sales list will have two types of breeders, those who are assured and those who are not. Registrations are accepted from both.
A 3 yearly visit is required by the Kennel club to check for standards and welfare of dogs and puppies, and that all paperwork is up to date with regards to breeding dogs.
We are being send their assured scheme logo which I can use on any puppy pack in the future and website.
The Kennel club do recognise that breeders outside the scheme can also give their dogs great welfare, this is just as I said above an extra thing we as breeders can belong to, so that you know you are buying puppies from ethical breeders. As we have been checked in our home.
Our council do check yearly but with being an assured breeder their are talks that we will have 3 yearly council checks instead of 1 if assured.
Its all about meeting high standards these days. Having assessed our home, kennels, exercise area, grooming parlour, it all comes to a high standard.
For example our contract and puppy pack has been looked at by the Kennel club, so you know again their is a standard in our requirements.
I think we need to define those good breeders more than ever, especially at the moment where the dog world is in a bit of disarray. October 1st 2018 all dog breeders who make a sale on a puppy are required to have a license with their local council. Where as before only breeders exceeding 5 litters in our council area were required to be licensed. Although 3 is mentioned you are allowed to still have litters but you can not make a sale on the puppies.
We are council licensed and meet all requirements for the law in breeding dogs and sales of dogs.
We should also achieve accolades for experience, stud book numbers, and being a member of two breed clubs. The Pug dog club and The French bulldog club.
We have to date bred 6 Hungarian Vizsla stud book numbers, and brought and showed 4 which achieved stud book numbers. We have bred CC & RCC in Vizsla.
We have to date bred 2 Weimaraners with stud book numbers, and brought and showed 1 which achieved a stud book number. We have also bred a Czech Champion, INT. CH, LUX CH, JW, SH.CM, and DUTCH.CH.
We have campaigned a dog we brought to become a champion and another dog who is an International Champion.
