The Pink BookThe Pink Book, updated yearly, has proven to be a valuable link between the public and reputable, responsible breeders. The Pink Book is available as a ready resource to veterinarians, pet shops, clubs, boarding kennels and breeders.

Any club may apply for membership in the Council by writing to the Corresponding Secretary, P.O. Box 215126, Sacramento, CA 95821. Or, you can click [HERE] for a printable copy of the application.

The Breeders' Referral service was established in 1970 by the Council to help the public locate reputable breeders of quality dogs. In addition to this site, the Council publishes an annual directory, the Pink Book, which is distributed free of charge to veterinarians, feed stores, pet shops and groomers throughout the greater Sacramento region.

Breeders listed by the Council are subject to our Code Of Ethics. Each applicant must have a thorough knowledge of his or her breed and be active in AKC or UKC sanctioned events or activities relative to that breed's instinct and purpose. The applicant's premises are inspected for sanitary conditions, the health of the dogs, and record-keeping, including sales contracts and spay/neuter agreements.
