Gold and Silver Level Application

How does a Boykin spaniel owner become a Preferred Breeder?  They start by having 100% of their breeding dogs veterinary-examined for the Boykin Spaniel Foundation (identified inherited chronic diseases.  All are debilitating, some can be fatal; no puppy deserves to be born with any of them.  Next, they submit an application which is scrutinized by the Board of Directors.  Only the 15-member Board determines who will be a Preferred Breeder.
