The KUSA Accredited Breeders Scheme

I have signed the pledge detailed below and was accepted as a KUSA Accredited Breeder for Boxers in April 2009. Please email me if you would like to view my certificate.

PLEDGE TO BE SIGNED AND ADHERED TO BY ACCREDITED BREEDERS

I agree and commit to being a responsible Dog Breeder. I accept that this means adhering to the following points:

1. I will not disadvantage my family in any way by having dogs that I cannot afford or manage.
2. I accept and will adhere to public health, nuisance and animal protection laws.
3. I will take proper care of my dogs - make sure that they are properly fed and watered, have adequate space, exercise and shelter, that they are vaccinated, receive any necessary veterinary care, and are kept free of parasites.
4. I will clean up after my dogs, so as to be hygienic, not causing a health problem for my family, my dogs or my neighbours and community.
5. I will as far as possible, try to make sure that my dogs do not make so much noise that my neighbours will be disturbed, and will try to amicably resolve any dispute with my neighbours, arising from issues pertaining to the dogs under my care.
6. I will control or confine my dogs so that visitors, who I allow on to my property are not endangered.
7. I will keep my dogs on my property so that they do not wander on to the street or other properties and become a danger, or nuisance, to traffic or other people or animals.
8. When I take my dogs out into public places I will keep them on a leash or control them so that they are not a danger or nuisance to other people or animals.
9. I will follow good breeding practice by only breeding, if I am reasonably sure that I will be able to find good homes for the puppies. I will have the puppies properly vaccinated, dewormed and positively identified before they go to their new homes. All puppies will be registered (entire litters) with the KUSA and no application for late registration will be submitted by me.
10. If I have a female in season I will suitably confine her or take her to a boarding kennel so that she does not cause a disturbance to other animals in the neighbourhood.
11. If I find a stray pet I will immediately inform an animal welfare organisation or take it to a welfare organisation if I do not know who the owner is.
12. I will be legally responsible for my dogs’ actions.
13. I will hand over KUSA registration papers to all new owners of puppies that I sell.
14. I will abide by all KUSA rules and regulations as well as KUSA voluntary inspection parameters

In signing this document, I accept that I could lose the prestigious status of Accredited Breeder, if it is proved that I have transgressed any of the conditions listed.

I affirm that I have read and understood the full contents of the Accredited Breeders application form, including the contents of this declaration.
