TCRFiles™ Breeders Database
There are 138,500 active dog breeders in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club . There is no other publication writing about dog breeders that follows traditional journalism protocols.
TCR’s reporting serves readers, not story subjects. We are beholden to subscribers, not sources. That said,we believe that our brand of strong, independent reporting has been embraced by good breeders who see TCR as an opportunity to lend further credibility to themselves and their work. As in all professions, we believe great breeders should be distinguished and, indeed, that some breeders are more trustworthy than others. We believe that more accountability for breeders and more information for prospective pet owners is in everyone’s interest.
