The Kennel Club
Assured Breeders Scheme
We are thoroughly pleased to announce that not only are we council licensed as part of our breeding setup, we are now also a certified active member of The Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme - the only organisation accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) to certify dog breeders.
This means that it has been recognised by The Kennel Club, who are an impartial and competent inspector for the government's sole national accreditation body, UKAS; that we have met the high standards required to procure this prestigious accolade for our premises and breeding practices.
The Kennel Club ABS promotes good breeding practice and aims to work together with breeders and buyers to force irresponsible breeders, or puppy farmers, out of business and to demonstrate their commitment to responsible breeding.
There are set requirements that Assured Breeders must agree to follow, which encourage the breeding of healthy, and well-adjusted puppies. They are the only organisation accredited by the UKAS to certify dog breeders, under the Kennel Club ABS. This means that the Kennel Club is recognised as an impartial and competent inspector by the government's sole national accreditation body.
The United Kingdom Accreditation Service is the sole national accreditation body recognised by the British government to assess the competence of organisations that provide certification, testing, inspection and calibration services.
This gives the puppy buying public additional confidence that Assured Breeders are committed to meeting and maintaining high standards for caring for the health and welfare of their puppies and breeding bitches, and are the best point of contact for buying a healthy, happy puppy.
