The program gives AKC a new way to engage, encourage and recognize ALL breeders who meet specific health testing standards and who participate in continuing education.

 

 The Bred with H.E.A.R.T program was meant to improve the health and well-being of purebred dogs through breeders like us, who have made a commitment to breeding better dogs through education and health testing.
