We received notification last week officially welcoming us into the AKC Breeder of Merit program. Breeders must apply to the program and meet specific requirements regarding their participation in AKC events and clubs, breeding practices including health testing, and titled get.
From the AKC site:
The Breeder of Merit program honors breeders' hard work that continues to produce dogs that are healthy, capable, and beautiful; and which serve as the backbone of the sport.
We are honored to be one of the first Weimaraner breeders accepted into this new AKC program.
