Breeder Programs & Services
Whether you’re breeding your first litter or next Best in Show winner, we offer invaluable resources for dog breeders, including up-to-date information, ongoing educational programs and more:
Show you are a responsible breeder and that your puppies meet breed standards! When you register your litters with the Caninehq, you get a Registration Certificate for each puppy from the litter and you also set them up for eligibility to compete in Caninehq sports and events.
With Prepay you can pay for and edit puppy information for all the puppies in your litter. You can also transfer puppies and view their registration status, all from within the Manage Litters option in Breeder Toolkit.
