Can you report a breeder to the AKC?

Improper practices can be reported. The AKC is not a government agency, and we cannot shut down a breeder, nor can we take dogs off property. We do, however, in any case where a dog is in any danger or being treated improperly, report the breeder to local authorities and sanction them where necessary.

How many litters can a AKC dog have?

While AKC formerly focused on breeders registering 7 or more litters annually, lowering the litter threshold to include randomly selected breeders of 4 to 6 litters will allow AKC to inspect those who chose to reduce their number of AKC registered litters in order to avoid inspection.
