In order to improve and protect the pudelpointer in North America and to provide current and future puppy buyers with a place to begin their research, the Board of Directors of the North American Pudelpointer Society (NAPS) has started the NAPS Breeder Program. On this page you will find breeders and stud dog owners listed who have voluntarily submitted documentation for review by the Breeder Program Committee to show that they use breeding stock which meets or exceeds the current breed standard and breeding requirements of NAPS.
In order to be listed on this page you must be a member of NAPS in good standing, submit an application and pay an annual fee.
The Breeder Program is run by a volunteer committee of three NAPS members, in good standing, who have been appointed by a majority vote of the NAPS Board of Directors. The committee consists of at least one breeder and at least one non-breeder. This committee shall not act as breed wardens and will not evaluate every breeding by breeders on the list. Nor does the committee have the authority to approve or disapprove specific breeders, instead they will make suggestions to the NAPS Board of Directors on these matters. The committee’s sole role is to evaluate that a breeder’s breeding stock meets the NAPS breeding requirements and breed standards.
While NAPS has determined that these breeders and their dogs meet the requirements listed, we are not responsible for the individual practices of any breeder listed on this page. If a breeders if found to be in violation of the Code of Ethics, they will be removed from the list for a period of at least 1 year. NAPS shall not be held liable for the actions of the breeders listed on this page.
While the breeders listed on this page have been determined to meet the requirements to be listed, we still encourage all puppy buyers to read and follow the guidelines listed in our Puppy Buyers Guide.
