Canaan Dog Breeder Referral
(or, How to Find a Canaan Dog Puppy)

If you are in the market for a Canaan Dog puppy, you've come to the right place. Our breed is fortunate to have a small group of dedicated breeders that communicate with each other regularly and work together for the betterment of the breed. Because of this deep commitment, prospective buyers may find that purchasing a Canaan Dog is not as simple as purchasing a dog of another breed. Canaan Dog breeders tend to be highly selective and maintain lengthy evaluation processes to ensure the integrity of our breed's future. It is not uncommon to wait 6 to 12 months for the right puppy nor it is uncommon for the breeder to choose your puppy based on his or her understanding of your needs in a companion dog. The Canaan Dog Club of America fully supports the thorough evaluation of prospective homes in addition to adherence to the Code of Ethics. The breeder has a duty to the place puppies so they can live up to their best potential whether it be as a companion or as a show/breeding prospect. In addition, the Canaan Dog is still somewhat rare, and breeders often get many more enquiries about puppies than there are puppies available.

If you have a Canaan Dog that you've rescued or can no longer keep, or you are interested in living with an older Canaan Dog that needs a new home, please contact the Canaan Dog Rescue Network.

A CDCA information package is available. It contains valuable information on the Canaan Dog, and we hope it will answer most, if not all, of the questions you may have regarding Canaan Dogs.

To receive the CDCA information package (which includes a CDCA Breeders' List) through the regular mail, please email candocanaans at yahoo dot com and provide your name and address (please spell your name and street) and a phone number where you can be reached if we have any questions (if you send email, please prefix set the Subject of your message to “Canaan Dog”). You may also send a stamped, self-addressed, standard size (#10) business envelope to:

CDCA Breeder Referral
2300 Crossover Road
Reno, NV  89510-9354

If after receiving the information package you still have questions there are names and phone numbers included in the information package of people you can contact that will be happy to answer your questions. You can also contact any of the breeders on the CDCA Breeders' List.

We also recommend that you check for dogs available through the
Canaan Dog Rescue Network

The CDCA offers this Breeders List as an information service only. The CDCA does not guarantee, endorse, recommend or approve any individual breeder, puppy or dog.

Attention Breeders:

In order to be included on this list, breeders are required to submit a CDCA Breeders List Application to the Breeder Referral Chair at the address above. It is the responsibility of the Breeder to submit any changes to address, phone number or any new/revised information on a new application. An application expires automatically two years from the last litter produced by their bitch or stud and it is the Breeder's responsibility to submit an updated application with the latest information. The CDCA Breeders List will be updated periodically, as deemed necessary by the Breeder Referral Chair, requiring all who wish to remain on the list to renew their status. A breeder can request inclusion on the list at any time by submitting an application. Breeders will be removed from the list (or not qualified to be on the list) if they do not have a bitch that has produced a litter or do not have a dog at stud that has produced a litter within the last two years or do not meet the qualifications as defined in the Code of Ethics. Breeders must be a CDCA adult voting member in good standing.

All information on this page is taken directly from the Breeder Referral information package. Please contact the Breeder Referral Chair for an application or use this Breeders List Application.

Breeders: you can also update your breeding status by sending a note to the CDCA Breeder Referral Chair with one of the following:

Bitch Bred/Puppies Expected (when unknown if breeding has taken)
Puppies On The Way (when sure breeding has taken)
Puppies Available (when pups are on the ground)
Older Puppy Available
Adult Dog/Male Available
Adult Bitch/Female Available
MM/YY Breeding Scheduled

If your situation does not fit into any of these categories contact the CDCA Breeder Referral Chair.

Meet and Greet List

The Meet and Greet List is a way to talk to persons that are either not qualified at this time or choose not to be on the CDCA Breeders' List but would like to be available to educate potential owners about the ups and downs of Canaan Dog ownership. They are willing to make their home and dog(s) available for visits, so that people can meet Canaan Dogs in the “fur”. However, they are not currently breeding their dogs and thus will not have any puppies available.

The following Canaan Dog owners have agreed to introduce you to adult Canaan Dogs. All persons on this list are CDCA members in good standing and have signed, and abide by, the Code of Ethics of the Canaan Dog Club of America, Inc.

Some of the members on this list are Breeders that are not currently breeding but who may have litters in the future and some of the members are owners who are experienced with the breed. All of the people on this list are dedicated to helping you determine that the Canaan Dog is the right breed for you. All puppies are cute, it is the adult dog that you will be living with for many years. We are all dedicated to insuring that our puppies have a loving home for life.
