Let's protect the fundamental right to breed together...

The future of the dog world depends on dog breeders. The right to breed is under attack and the only way we will be able to preserve that right is by joining forces. That's why our community welcomes all dog breeders who meet our Community Standards and comply with our Good Breeder Code of Ethics. By uniting together, we can change the conversation and finally gives our dogs the world they deserve.
