What is a Breeders restriction?

A breeder may impose a breeding restriction on a puppy when registering it with KUSA. This does not prevent the new owner breeding but, unless the original breeder lifts the restriction, the offspring cannot be registered with KUSA or shown.

Breeding restrictions can be imposed for several reasons:

i. To protect the breeders line or “brand”

ii. To prevent crossing the kennel line with other lines that are judged unsuitable for one reason or another

iii. If a heritable health or conformational issue has appeared in the litter
