For this year’s National Canine Health Testing Week (17 – 21 November), dog owners are being encouraged to show off their healthy and happy dogs by taking a ‘healthy selfie’ of their pet and uploading it to social media with the hashtags #doghealthyselfie and #NCHTW.
The campaign aims to help spread the word about the importance of using recommended health testing before breeding, and buying puppies from appropriately health tested parents.
The Kennel Club is calling for those who support canine health testing to take a photo of their dogs with a piece of paper or card in front of them with a statement written on demonstrating their support for canine health testing, such as ‘I support National Canine Health Testing Week’, ‘I’ve been hip scored’ or ‘Health tested and proud’. These photos should then be uploaded to social media, using the hashtags #doghealthyselfie and #NCHTW to show the world that dog owners care about the importance of health testing. Have you-and your Glen of Imaal Terrier-supported?
