In 1928, Dog World magazine founder, Captain William Lewis Judy, established the first National Dog Week. Observed during the last full week of September, it’s focus was not only to celebrate our canine companions, but to put a spotlight on what it means to be a responsible dog owner. Captain Judy, also known as the “Man who Brought America to the Dogs” believed that our dogs are valued members of the family and should be treated with the love and respect they deserve.
Here at PuppySpot, we couldn’t agree more with Captain Judy. Our community of dog lovers are committed to our mission of making lives better by placing healthy puppies into happy homes. This commitment starts with making sure our screened and vetted network of responsible breeders are held to the highest standards.
In honor of National Dog Week, PuppySpot will be hosting a mobile veterinarian health clinic for our breeders in Indiana. Our breeders can use this resource to have their adult dogs thoroughly checked, and the option to have any dog over 2-years of age OFA certified by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.
OFA Certification varies by breed, but the most common include:
- Heart Certification
- Hip Certification
- Elbow Certification
- Patella Certification
Questions about OFA? Our Puppy Concierge Team can answer any questions you may have about our puppies with an OFA certified parent.
