Certified Daily Log Library

Canine Care Certified is committed to supporting breeders throughout the certification process by helping them implement the standards into their kennel operations without impacting their ability to care for the dogs.

To that end, Canine Care Certified provides example logs that breeders and their veterinarians are encouraged to use to help them meet the important and rigorous standards set forth by the program.

While breeders are not required to use these suggested examples specifically, they must provide daily tracking of activities and written plans as part of the Canine Care Certified process.

Breeders are encouraged to avoid duplicating paperwork that is already in use. If records have been completed for another purpose (e.g. USDA or state inspections) that meet the request for information, breeders may simply email these documents to as part of their application submission. Breeders also should keep this paperwork to share with their Canine Care Certified auditor.

The templates are categorized to correspond to the Canine Care Certified application. Some categories offer a variety of form options to consider, however the primary form to meet the minimum documentation criteria for Canine Care Certified standards appears first.

These examples may be edited as needed to meet the individual needs of the kennel.
