Breeder Membership Program

The Canadian Dogo Argentino Club is committed to the preservation and protection of the Dogo Argentino in Canada. Part of that commitment involves identifying, supporting and fostering relationships with ethical breeders.

The CDAC Breeder Membership is a voluntary program for breeders who follow a Code of Ethics, established the national breed club. Breeders who partake in this program meet a minimum criterion for responsible breeding that includes:

  • Breeding stock registered with a recognized registry

  • Minimum Health Testing Requirements outlined in the CoE

  • Purposeful, planned breeding practices

  • Screening and selective placement of puppies

  • Support and engagement with all placed puppies through the lifetime of the dog.

Check out the Code of Ethical Conduct for Breeders - here.

Breeder Memberships cost $100 annually.
