Good lawyers and good vets

We know how difficult it can be to find and connect with trusted professionals, so we asked our Good Breeders to recommend Good Vets and Good Lawyers to help our Good Breeder community get the support you deserve!

by Monica DeBosscher, Esq. - Director of Partnerships, Community & Legal Affairs at Good Dog

As a member of our Good Breeder community, you know better than anyone just how difficult it can be to find breeder-friendly veterinarians who understand reproductive medicine and dog lawyers familiar with animal law and breeding practices. Finding the right veterinarians and lawyers can help improve your breeding programs and make your lives easier so you can focus on what really matters - the dogs.

We know how important it is to be able to find professionals that you can trust, which is why we asked your fellow Good Breeders to recommend professionals they know personally and would recommend...because we are so much stronger together and by supporting each other we can all succeed, together.

We believe the key to finding the right vet or lawyer for you as a dog breeder means talking to your fellow breeders to discover the professionals they know and trust. That is why you can find your fellow breeders’ suggestions below and easily connect with the Good Vet or Good Lawyer that is the best fit for you and your breeding program! :) And you can always reach out to legal@gooddog.com if you’re ever in need of immediate assistance or if you need help deciding which Good Vet or Good Lawyer is right for you!
