STEP 1: Go to the Breeder’s Login page and sign the Code of Ethics. Once you sign the DPCNA Code of Ethics, you will be granted access to the password protected breeder’s page with all the e-forms you will need.
STEP 2: Look for the e-Conformation Exam and upload all of the required photos. We have provided examples for you to emulate. The Board will convene an e-Meeting to grade your Drent.
STEP 3: Wait for your e-Conformation Exam results. With passing results, you should proceed to the next step.
STEP 4: Seek out an AKC Canine Good Citizen exam for your Drent and provide documentation that your dog passed and/or is a certified therapy or service dog. Also, your Drent may be evaluated by a Board Member.
STEP 5: Start your dog’s health testing, this has two steps:
a) Get the CAER exam for your dog’s eyes done first, it isn’t expensive, but finding a qualified veterinarian can be tricky. If you have a “normal” passing result, move onto the last item. (please note: eye exams are only valid for 12 months from the date certificate is issued. The exception is for dogs over 6 years of age - a passing result is valid indefinitely)

electronic conformation exam request
This is the first step to getting your Drent approved for breeding. Your Drent must be at least 18 months of age to process a Conformation Exam Request. A conformation exam uses the breed standard to look at the outward qualities of your dog - including structure, specific items relating to breed type, and movement. Please use the link below to request an e-conformation exam.
Use the link below to complete the process of getting your Drent approved for breeding!
