The GDB Stud Certified process delivers an added advantage to the stud owner. By obtaining a third party stamp of approval verifies your stud beyond just performance in the field. The GDB Stud Certification is a proccess only top studs can achieve and was established to create a standard of excellence when selecting a stud or buying a puppy. The days of "hey take a look at the pedigree" are long gone.
We believe that better decisions are made based on quality information. Apply today to get your stud CERTIFIED.
Stud owners are required to provide documents (eg. Hip OFA, registration papers, 3 Gen pedigree, DNA testing, and etc) for the desired level of certification. Please refer to Stud Certified Rating System for list of requirements.
GDB staff will verify documentation and check for authenticity with appropriate reporting sources. Anyone who provides a testimonial will be contacted for confirmation.
GDB has a five star rating system (see chart below) that is issued to each certified stud. Once verified, the stud certificate will be issued based on the level of information received from the stud owner.
Please send copies of required documents along with your payment to GDB Stud Certified. Once GDB has verified all the submitted information, a GDB Stud Certification rating will be issued and your stud certified site will be created.
