Organization continues commitment to supporting Responsible Breeders

New York, NY- The American Kennel Club (AKC®), the world’s largest purebred dog registry and leading authority and advocate for dogs, continues to promote its 133-year mission and support of breeders with  the launch of a brand new breeder-focused slogan “Healthy Happy Puppies Start with Me and AKC.”

The AKC’s Marketing department collaborated with its Delegate body and Licensed and Member Clubs, to create the slogan, which will make its debut on magnetic bumper stickers this month at the AKC Meet The Breeds Event on February 11, 2017. Responsible breeders that register their dogs with the American Kennel Club can use this slogan on their web properties and to communicate proudly that they are breeding dogs with good health as a priority.

“The AKC has always held responsible breeders in the highest regard,” said Dennis Sprung, President and CEO of the American Kennel Club. “Breeders that maintain responsible programs produce beautiful, healthy dogs that become wonderful companions and enhance our lives.”
