How it Began:     
The Dakota Pet Breeders Association (DPBA) originated as a cooperative effort of many individual South Dakota companion animal breeders.

What is DPBA:
The DPBA is an organization formed to advance South Dakota companion animal breeders by conducting educational seminars, dissemination informational materials, and by promoting and cooperating with other organizations to support the companion animal breeders of South Dakota.

Membership Benefits Include:
The DPBA offers an opportunity to exchange ideas and information with others engaged in companion animal breeding.  It is an avenue to provide educational materials and information through newsletters, workshops and seminars, as well as promote "Dakota Born and Raised" companion animals.  Members are also kept informed on legislative issues and actions which affect them, and are offered the opportunity to voice their opinions and concerns pertaining to such legislative actions.

Members are listed in the State Breeder Directory. Paid membership also includes a listing on this website, to promote you the breeder, and the breed/breeds you raise. All DPBA members must maintain current applicable licenses, and agree to uphold the high standards as set forth by the DPBA.

Continuing Education Units (EDU):
Every year since Dakota Pet Breeders was organized, an educational seminar has been held.  At these seminars guest speakers share their knowledge in their specialty.  This year alone we had three veterinarians, a nutrition specialist, and an expert who showed us how to pick the best dogs to improve our breeding programs, plus many more.

This year (2014) we started a continuing education program to keep track of the hours we spend in this classroom environment.   For each hour of class one unit was earned.  We started this year at 0.  It does not reflect past years and hours of class attended. Members can also earn units by attending other state’s seminar presentations, So make sure you ask the person you have contacted how many years they have been a member and multiply that by the average hours earned this year of 5 to get an idea of the hours they have spent in a classroom

Our members have this in common.  The reason we attend is it to expand our knowledge and improve our dogs.  Our goal is to provide the best puppy possible to you.
