Puppy Certificate - Ask Your Breeder

The RSPCA, British Veterinary Association and the 2018 Animal Welfare regulations all recommend that the breeder provides information as to the health, parentage and socialisation of the puppy. This is considered best practice whether the breeder is licensed or not. Our Breeder Records software is available to the breeder free of charge so there is no excuse for them not to provide this information. If you are purchasing a new puppy please make sure your breeder uses a system like our Puppy Certificate, It is free for any registered Breeder to use.

Please help us to eliminate puppy farming through better records.

Use the button to email your Breeder and ask them to register.

Beagles are medium sized dogs with a wonderfully kind nature and a gentle disposition. They love company and are eager to please, so these merry little dogs make wonderful companions. They are always close by and keen to be involved in all activity surrounding them. Beagles are such a huge people lover that they don’t like being left alone for any great length of time. The breed is much better suited to a family home where someone is at home all day.

Beagles are known to suffer from a few health issues affecting the eyes and hips, and are prone to epilepsy.
