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.

Greyhound

The Greyhound is an athletic, lean dog that is very low maintenance when it comes to their grooming. Loyal companions and with a gentle nature, they are a firm favourite as a family pet. They are very affectionate so are lovely to have around. These elegant dogs do need to let off steam regularly, so plenty of exercise is important to this breed. They are interestingly not very big eaters though.

When it comes to health, Greyhounds are true athletes and are prone to injuring their legs. They are also known to suffer from Neuropathy and Congenital deafness.
