  founded in 1996
The International Progressive Dog Breeders' Alliance , (IPDBA) founded in 1996 is the first registry of its kind, uniting Master breeders and enthusiasts around the world of all breeds of canines in one unique registry.

The founders of IPDBA believe that the breeding of all animals is an art form, and as such, like minded breeders should have the freedom to express themselves and their vision for their breed (s) in not only their breeding programs, but all the dogs within their breed, throughout the registry.

The founders of IPDBA were Master canine breeders of  their breeds, who realized that no matter how well their personal breeding program was or how much they improve their dogs in their kennel over many years, it had very little influence to the improvement of the breed as a whole. In fact, most breeds as a whole today are declining in the other registries who sole purpose is to keep a pedigree data base and stud book. The founders' realized the only way to improve an entire breed was to get all the breeder's within a registry to breed their dogs under the same strict standards and requirements. 

Since each breed may have different faults, or things that need improvement that are unique to themselves, each breed would need to have unique registration requirements to improve their breed as a whole. Since the breeder's of each breed knows their breed better than the officer's of any dog registry, IPDBA gives full control to the Chartered Breed Association of each breed to develop their breed's unique registration requirements and IPDBA Registrar strictly enforces those unique requirements for each breed, removing and improving each breed.

Example #1: If a breed suffers from genetic fault/s, all dogs would be required to be certified free from the fault before they could be used for breeding. With the use of genetic coding, the future looks bright for IPDBA breeds to able them to completely eradicate all genetic faults in their breeds. No other registry is setup or equipped to do it and is already happening within IPDBA.

Example #2: If a hunting or working breed suffers from years of breeding non-hunting or non-working dogs, they would be require to be Certified as hunting or working dogs before used for breeding. A Tree Dog breed would be required to Certify as a Tree Dog, a bird dog breed would be required to be Gun Dog Certified, or a Search and Rescue breed, would be required to be Certified for Search & Rescue to be permanently registered and used for breeding. This is already being done in many IPDBA registered breeds improving customer satisfaction 5 times over what the same breed are producing in other registries today.

Example #3: If a breed suffers from unethical breeder's switching papers and pedigrees on their dogs, all pups would require to be permanently identified with marked diagrams, photos, tattoos, microchips, or even DNA, etc..  Also, all known breeder's and their dogs who have false papers in other registries can be permanently banned from registration in IPDBA, eliminating those false pedigrees in the whole breed within IPDBA. This has also been done in some IPDBA breeds, eliminating impure dogs and bloodlines totally from their breed, sadly still being produced in other registries.

Example #4: If a breed in known to have one or more inherited genetic disorder/s carried in certain dogs or bloodline within the breed, The Breed Charter or IPDBA can ban any dogs that are known to have that bloodline or dog in it's pedigree. This has been done in many IPDBA breeds today, completely eliminating inherited genetic disorders still commonly found in the same breeds in other registries. 

Since it's founding, IPDBA has attracted some of the best canine breeder's around the world for their respective breed's and has quickly established a reputation of  having the highest superior quality dogs within their registry. "Quality over Quantity" is the IPDBA motto.

Within the FIRST 20 years, IPDBA policies have attracted the VERY-BEST most KNOWLEDGEABLE breeder's from around the WORLD, who have used the policies developed by their Breed Charters and enforced by the IPDBA Registrar to develop BREEDS 100% FREE from all known INHERITED GENETIC DISORDERS. IPDBA is also home to unique SUPERIOR BLOODLINES not found ANYWHERE else in the WORLD! Basically, the founder's dream has come TRUE. You CANNOT get BETTER QUALITY or GENETICALLY BETTER DOGS or PUPS than out of IPDBA REGISTERED DOGS!

IPDBA was developed to:

Give creative freedom to canine breeders to preserve and improve their entire unique breed without interference from the registry.

Establish an all breed registry for Breed Charter's to setup their own unique registration requirements to remove genetic disorders, to improve and preserve their breed, and adjust those requirements as needed to save our canine breeds from years poor selection and poor standards.
