Dog breeders are the superheroes of the dog world. You make sure our dogs are responsibly bred, setting the foundation for a healthy and happy life. In our mission to empower dog breeders, we offer free and exclusive resources and benefits to breeders in our community!
Good Dog is free for breeders who pass our screening and comply with our standards (you cannot pay to join)!
Annual & Monthly Canine Health Initiative
In our mission to promote canine health, we give Good Breeders up to $100 to spend on screening tests (including x-rays, thyroid panel, cardiac or eye exams, and OFA registration) each year. This is separate from and in addition to our discounts on genetic testing.
For the month of October, as part of our initiative to prevent Heartworm Disease, we are offering our Good Breeder community $10 off heartworm prevention products or heartworm tests.

Good Breeders get exclusive access to Payments through Good Dog, our secure payment solution created specifically for breeders and your buyers. Unlike other payment methods, Good Dog guarantees all payments received through Good Dog. We protect breeders from scams and cancelled payments, and give buyers peace of mind knowing they are working with a Good Breeder and their payments are fully guaranteed. It is completely free for Good Breeders. Buyers pay a small Service & Protection Fee, which helps us run Good Dog and support our mission to champion breeders like you. Learn more about Payments through Good Dog here.
We believe every Good Breeder deserves a Good support system. We created the Good Breeder Mentoring Program so that experienced breeders in our community can share their knowledge and know-how with breeders who are just starting out in their breeding programs and wish to develop a supportive relationship with a veteran breeder. Learn more about our mentoring program here.
