AKC's Bred With H.E.A.R.T. Program

As part of the American Kennel Club's century-long commitment to advance the health and welfare of all dogs, the AKC has a new program called Bred with H.E.A.R.T. The program gives the AKC a new way to engage, encourage, and recognize those breeders who meet specific health testing standards and participate in continuing education.
