A Good Breeder With AKC Standards
How to find a good kennel with AKC standards:
There are many factors that separate a good kennel or breeder from a bad one. The American Kennel Club (AKC) has established a policy that takes all the guesswork out of trying to figure it out by providing guidelines for best kennel practices. When you are looking for a Weimaraner or Vizsla puppy for sale, make sure you read what the AKC has to say first and then come to White River Kennels.
The AKC’s criteria include an inspections program that looks at making sure each kennel has fresh food, water, appropriate shelter, veterinary care, human contact and socialization as well as appropriate exercise. White River Kennels ensures each puppy and dog in our home kennel is well-taken care and we follow AKC’s criteria meticulously.
Inspections are conducted by the AKC and are the only purebred registry in the United States to do so. The inspections start with a tour of the overall lkennel, checking that the dogs and the environment are in good shape as well as checking on the welfare of each dog. Although the AKC does not have penal authority over breeders, it can take away AKC privileges and in extreme cases, law enforcement authorities are alerted.
Breeders work very hard every year and are the ones who are the backbone of the sport and keep the foundation of the American Kennel Club alive. Because of this, the AKC recognizes these people with the Breeder of Merit program. These breeders are committed to improving the integrity of their breed to keep that particular breed alive and pure.
The AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF) was established in 1995 and is the largest nonprofit organization devoted solely to canine health research. It funds the work, diagnosis, and treatment of canine disease and has led to many breakthroughs over the years. It includes work on the development of genetic testing for several inherited canine diseases.
You may not realize it, but the best breeders keep abreast of this research and use it when making decisions about their next litter. Their goal, as always, is to improve upon the previous generation, so the puppies your children and grandchildren live with and love will be even more wonderful than the four-footed companion by your side right now.
Because of the AKC and its standards of excellence that it expects breeders to follow, your puppy will become someone who will be there for you through everything. They can be your best friend and companion through thick and thin.
