Good Dog is a breeding program that is made for reputable and responsible breeders. Each breeder has to go through multiple interviews and in-depth checks on their genetic testing, breeding program, facility, and so much more.
We are so happy to be able to be apart of this program. It has given us many amazing opportunities.
A little bit about how Good Dog evaluate their breeding programs...
How do we evaluate breeding programs?
Our screening department comprehensively considers many aspects of a breeding program, focusing on five key areas:
- Breeding practices
- Physical health of the breeding dogs and puppies
- Mental health of the breeding dogs and puppies
- Buyer education and policies
Each key area is assessed individually and an assessment is also made on the program as a whole.
Our screening process entails an online questionnaire, phone interview, and vetting by our screening team. Our screening committee then reviews the application for compliance with our community standards and makes an assessment.
Check out their website for more information about breeding program standards and in-depth descriptions.
"I have created a program that is all inclusive, something that cannot be found anywhere else. Empowering breeders to be able to stand in their own space and run their programs as a professional will change the face of breeding. By aligning breeders by a common code of ethics we will rise together. A beautiful thing is happening, breeders are acknowledging their worth and power to create dogs that heal hearts and change lives. And in doing so, the public is taking notice at our unity, our standards and our passion. "

This program offers intense classes that go into depth with every portion of breeding. Covering daily curriculum for your program, placing your puppies in the correct home based on their temperament, what to do incase of medical emergency and prevent medical emergencies. I believe in always continuing your education and being a life-long learner. I am using this knowledge to better my program and provide the best pups to you and your families. I am using it to provide the best foundation for my puppies and to prepare them for the rest of their life. I teach them life saving recalls, and build confidence daily. I have been incredibly impressed with this program. I have seen significant differences in the puppies I raise with the BAB program guidelines compared to others.

BAB Puppy Evaluator
I am so excited to say that I have put in the hours and complete the @badassbreeder puppy evaluator class 🙌🏻
We temperament all of our pups before they go home to make sure that the pups get a say in where they go. We do this to help the puppies have a voice. Our job as the breeder is to be the voice of the dogs because, well they can be one for themselves unfortunately.
We do this to let the puppies know we hear them, and we are doing the best we possibly can with placing them in a home that best fits them. I am also so excited to say that I am an official BAB Puppy Evaluator!!! I have spent many hours and weeks learning the criteria and how to test each puppy.
I have learned to score how a puppy reacts to a certain situation and use that to evaluate their temperament. Based on how they react to new encounters, I make suggestions to our families about what pup would be the best fit for their home.
Barkd is an app that was designed to help you find your perfect puppy. It helps you find what puppy would be best for you and your family based on what is important to you. They used an incredible matching process to find your perfect companion. Stephen and Daniel are amazing people and really designed this app with you in mind. They have an extensive application process for breeders because they only allow reputable breeders to be apart of the app and program. I am so excited to say that I have completed the application process and not only have I been accepted to the breeders portion of Barkd, but I have been recognized as an Empowered Breeder!
