|Declaration agreed to by Breeders on this list|
I understand that in doing so I undertake to breed according to the NZ Kennel Club Code of Ethics*, and breed from Labradors that are registered with the NZ Kennel Club, and they have had the necessary health clearances. We have taken as our standard those recommended by NZKC Accredited Breeders Scheme and there may, in the future, be changes to these.They currently are:-
- Hip and elbow Radiographed and scored by a recognised panel
- DNA test for PRA [ or both parents DNA clear ] So this means if you breed a puppy that is by a clear over a carrier (that meaning it can only be clear or carrier) you can then put it to a clear dog
- A current eye certificate.[ within 12 months]
I will also support the Labrador Club by making club contacts available to the new owners and, ideally, giving a Breeder Pack [ Handbook plus 6 months membership ] to the new owners of my puppies.*
