The annual certification fee for Canine Care Certified is $1,500, plus $10 per dog over 50. This price includes the initial deposit of $500. You should pay the deposit after you create an online account and sign the legal agreements that protect you as well as the proprietary Standards of Care.
After paying your deposit, you will receive the Canine Care Certified Breeder Manual which includes the full Standards of Care. You also will be able to access the Breeder Toolkit with helpful resources. Following the review of the standards, any breeder who does not wish to proceed with certification, may withdrawal from the program and will be refunded the deposit (less the administrative cost).
You should pay the remaining certification fee after you have completed and submitted the Breeder Kennel Application and Veterinary Care Form (completed by a licensed veterinarian).
CCW will process your remaining $1,000 non-refundable certification fee, plus $10.00 for each adult dog on the premise with more than 50 dogs (adult dog is 16 weeks and older).
For example, if you have 60 adult dogs, your remaining certification fee will be $1,100.
