Our Breeders

Puppies and older dogs are available from several sources. So . . . why would you choose to consider a CADF registry breeder?

 

The breeders listed on our registry have all been screened. They have agreed to abide by our code of ethics which is as following:

  • All puppies sold by a member that are breeder shall be registered with the Canadian Kennel Club and properly identified.

  • All puppies shall receive their first set of vaccinations prior to placement and a record of the shots will be provided to the buyer.

  • Puppies shall be checked by a licensed veterinarian who will supply a certificate of health status.

  • Puppies shall not be sold until seven weeks of age unless extenuating circumstances prevail.

  • Puppies shall not be sold singly or in litter lots to wholesale, middlemen, retail outlets, or by auction.

  • Breeding stock shall be screened for known hereditary abnormalities appropriate to the particular breed, where the methodology is available to do so.

  • The Breeder agrees to fully inform buyers of potential health or genetic problems pertinent to the breed at large or the individual puppy.

  • The Breeder shall supply to the buyer of each puppy at the time of sale a written agreement of sale properly executed stating all terms of the sale (e.g. release of non-breeding agreements).

  • The Breeder agrees to provide follow-up advice to buyers regarding health and behavioral problems.

  •  The Breeder shall provide a detailed information sheet on proper care e.g. feeding instructions, required vaccination regime, socialization and training, responsibility of pet ownership, etc..

  •  The Breeder shall, if under suspension by the Canadian Kennel Club, be removed from the CADF Registry for the duration of the suspension, and/or if convicted of cruelty to animals shall be removed permanently.

Responsible breeders are aware of the heritable problems associated with their chosen breed, and, where diagnostics are available, have screened their breeding stock against these problems. Because these breeders know their breeds they will be able to provide after-purchase help with your new dog (crate training, feeding, house training, selecting a veterinarian, etc.).

You can be assured that your pup is a purebred and will be registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, and is not the result of indiscriminate breeding at some far off puppy mill.

 

A breeder will know the positive and negative personality traits of their breed. They will know about the grooming and training requirements and their breed's little idiosyncrasies.

 

Breeders are often involved in dog-related activities (obedience, pet therapy, agility, etc.). They can help you locate activities to participate in should you desire.

 

For a personal touch, helping you fill your family's furry friend void, please consider one of our breeders. They would consider it an honour!
