Being a Canine Care Certified Breeder is just one of the voluntarily involved programs we choose to partner with. Purdue University is proud to offer this program purely as a public service. The Standards of Care were created by Dr. Candace Croney, Ph.D. at Purdue University, in 2013 based on existing and ongoing research along with a Scientific Advisory Committee. Breeders seeking certification must meet or exceed rigorous physical and behavioral welfare standards in nutrition, veterinary care, genetics, housing, handling, socialization, enrichment, and exercise.
For the consumer, the voluntary choice of becoming a Canine Care Certified Breeder indicates that puppies and parents are raised under an independently audited program that ensures that specific health and welfare standards have been met. Canine Care Certified Breeders attend to their puppy’s and parent’s physical, genetic, and behavioral health. They are committed to raising the bar on the standard of care and attention they offer their puppies and parents.
