What is a “Master Breeder”?

 What Is A Master Breeder?

ckc-breeders-transparentI am very proud to have achieved recognition as a “CKC Master Breeder”.  This recognition can only be achieved through a minimum of 20 years of dedication to the breeding of quality dogs.

The following is an excerpt from Chapter 4 of the CKC Policies and Procedures manual.

Master Breeder Program [Board Motions #51-12-11 & #69-12-12] 

  1. Master Breeder

 (a)              The purpose of the Master Breeder Program is to recognize those CKC breeders who have consistently produced quality animals in a non-high volume or puppy mill facility.

 (b)              The applicant must submit a completed application with all the pertinent documentation to Head Office.  A one-time application fee as set out in Appendix 3 of this Chapter shall apply and must accompany the application.

 (c)              Eligibility Requirements
