The Hybrid Breeders Association (HBA) is an organisation whose primary goal is to promote responsible and ethical breeding of healthy dogs - whatever their breed.
We have therefore set out four main goals:
The HBA is not concerned with “breed standards” but with the breeder’s understanding of the health, husbandry and welfare of the dogs they breed (see the Five Freedoms). All HBA Registered Breeders work to a clear code of ethics with best practice compliance being monitored regularly.
The HBA aims to raise the standard of breeding for hybrid dogs by offering membership only to those breeders who adhere to our high standards. The assessment process is thorough, and once accepted and endorsed, HBA Registered Breeders can be relied upon as the Gold Standard of dog breeders.
The Hybrid Breeders Association (HBA) is a voluntary registration service for hybrid dog breeders in the UK. Our goal is to promote responsible breeding of hybrid dogs, exercising the highest standards of animal welfare and raise public awareness of the basic precautions that should be taken when buying a puppy.
