Thanks for the suggestions that the EFG health pages could do a bit of updating; they have now been done. Whilst on the subject of health a few co-ordinators have been in touch after the recent Breed Health Co-ordinators Seminar. Glen of Imaal Association Co-ordinator Don Harley told the meeting that, after a Stud Dog & Brood Bitch owners meetings to which people had been invited, it had been decided that only Glens DNA tested and micro-chipped would be bred from. This is now incorporated in to the Code of Ethics and has been passed by the Kennel Club. That was the bit that impressed others there as they had wanted to do this with their own breeds but the KC had said no as it was too restrictive. What was the Association’s secret?
From Don Harley: I realized it was incorrect about brood bitches, and I believe that I said that I would LIKE to see it in the code of ethics,but then when there are people making notes maybe I should have spoken louder or more clearly.Therefore I would like the blog to be corrected.
