GANA™ Apprentice Program

One of GANA™’s goals is to mentor new breeders to ensure they learn and use the best practices to produce healthy, sound puppies.  GANA™ offers an entry level membership to those interested in learning how to select appropriate breeding stock, testing their puppies/dogs to meet GANA™’s health testing requirements (, providing discount codes to labs that perform this testing, and access to two private Facebook groups (discussion group and an educational library).  The apprentice membership fee is $100 a year. This level of membership reverts to a breeder membership once the first breeding of the first breeding dog takes place.  A breeder membership requires a website and a minimum of a two year genetic defect warranty.   See the benefits of becoming a GANA™ member breeder here.  When completing the application to join as an apprentice, please fill in your kennel name and website address with the word “Apprentice”.
