I am proud to announce the award of the American Kennel Club
Certificate of inspection for 2012.
It is the highest award an inspector can give to a breeder.
I was inspected in past by The American Kennel Club already few times,
and I have always been in good standing with AKC.
While the inspector is here, paperwork compliance is checked
for thoroughness and completion.
Cleanliness of all facilities is also checked as well as the well-being of all the dogs.
If I have a litter of puppies when the inspector is here, he can take a DNA sample
(mouth swab) from the puppies as well as the parents.
If this DNA sample does not match,
I will no longer be able to register our dogs with the AKC.
AKC requires that sires used in more than three breedings each year be DNA tested.
Irregardless of how many litters we use a sire for, we DNA test all our sires.
Also, all my Thailand imported dogs are DNA tested.
Kennel inspections are done to ensure the integrity of the AKC registry
and monitor care and conditions at kennels across the country.
The AKC is the only purebred dog registry in the United States that maintains and
organized and continuous investigation and inspection effort.
The AKC conducts approximately 5,000 inspections each year to ensure compliance with
standards that support the health, safety,
and welfare of all dogs regardless of registration.
