Has anyone ever reported a breeder to the CKC?

I have sent emails to Lola's breeder numerous times asking for her papers. She's a year old now and still nothing. Also, I told the breeder about Lola requiring the femoral hip ostectomy and asked her if she would be able to help compensate us for the $2000 in vet bills we've had with Lola's hip problem. No response, not even a "sorry about your luck". I'm not too impressed and I feel that it's time I report her to the CKC but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.

Have any of you ever had to report a breeder?

Are you talking about the Canadian Kennel Club, or the American one that goes by those initials?

Hi Sheri, the Canadian Kennel Club. The breeder I got her from is from Saskatchewan.

I would get the main number with the kennel club by using google and go from there. I know AKC frowns upon breeders not sending the papers to puppy buyers, I'm sure the CKC feels the same way. They should be able to check to see if the parents are registered with them and if your puppy is eligible. That is a starting point.

How old is Lola again? Her website states there is a 2 year replacement guarantee.

Hi Meeka, Lola's only a year old, but she was first diagnosed with the hip problem in January at only 9 months old. I don't have alot of faith in the breeder though. There are too many signals that she's not all she represents herself to be.

just checked her site and yeah it does say 2 year genetic warranty. She is not listed as a Havanese Fanciers of Canada member. So if she is not answering your emails I would tell her you are going to contact CKC. See if that gets a reply.
