As part of AKC’s century-long commitment to advance the health and welfare of all dogs, the AKC has a new program called Bred with H.E.A.R.T. The program gives AKC a new way to engage, encourage and recognize ALL breeders who meet specific health testing standards and who participate in continuing education.
The Bred with H.E.A.R.T program was meant to improve the health and well-being of purebred dogs through breeders like us, who have made a commitment to breeding better dogs through education and health testing.
As a Bred with H.E.A.R.T breeder, we are comitted to the following standards:
Certifying that our breeding stock is health tested in accordance with the recommendations of their breed’s National Breed Club.
Promising that we will pursue AKC provided or AKC approved continuing breeder education so that we stay educated on the best breeding practices, including advances in canine health.
Agreeing to comply with the AKC Care and Conditions Policy, including inspections by the AKC, and promising to share with AKC health testing and continuing education documentation.
Accepting responsibility for the health and well-being of the puppies they produce and for complying with all laws regarding the ownership and maintenance of dogs.
Upholding the AKC’s tradition of breeding purebred dogs that are happy and healthy.
