Accredited breeder scheme

To help prospective puppy owners understand what being an Accredited Breeder means we have written a small glossary of the terms that the Kennel Club makes us adhere to.

As a small selective breeder of Boxers and Dogue De Bordeaux's we made the important decision to apply for Kennel Club Accreditation in order to assure all prospective owners of VALDENTON puppies that they are buying from a breeder whose main purpose is to only breed for the good of the breed
 our main aim is to breed sound and healthy puppies, we only breed a litter if we want a new puppy for the show ring,

we will never breed for profit.

We also guarantee to only breed from 1st class stock with all recommended Kennel Club health checks carried out.

With us being a K C Accredited breeder it will guarantee you the following and much more:
