Meet our team
Who we are..
Calgary Associated Dog Fanciers is a non-profit organization that has been helping the public locate puppies from responsible breeders since 1976. Since then we have expanded to help dog lovers in Canada by connecting them with their breed associations, providing valuable information sessions, and linking to professional trainers running classes such as agility, obedience and scent work.
The listed Breeders on our Registry have been screened and have agreed to abide by our "Code of Ethics". These Breeders are encouraged to offer support and education to individuals interested in acquiring a puppy of their chosen breed.
We do not list any commercial kennel operations or puppy mills on our site. We endeavor to list people that are committed to their breeds and/ or the sport they are passionate about. Our members are committed to assisting the public in understanding the drive and purpose of your chosen breed!
