Health Survey: Breed is over but what about the Kennel Club?

16 Dec

The Glen of Imaal Terrier Health Survey ran for nearly 11 weeks, from Monday 29th September to Friday 12th December and we received a fantastic 382 responses from 13 countries in 3 continents!

  • The UK response (130) represents 34% of the completed surveys
  • The US response (138) represents 36% of the completed surveys
  • The Finnish response (51) represents 13% of the completed surveys
  • The response from the other 10 countries (63) represents 17% of the completed surveys

We would like to say a very big “Thank you!” to everyone who has completed the survey for their Glens … all your contributions are very much appreciated and valued.The process of analysing and reporting on the data will begin after the Christmas and New Year festivities.  We hope to have a report ready for publication by March / April 2015. ​

Like buses though, you wait forever and two come along together, so whilst in practice and you know where the details are why not do the Kennel Club Health Survey?

“The 2014 Pedigree Breed Health Survey is open to owners of all Kennel Club breed-registered dogs, both living and deceased (since 2004).  It is hoped that the results of the survey will help to provide a clear picture of the prevalence of current health concerns and will enable evidence-based decisions to be made to improve dog health.  The Kennel Club encourages as many owners as possible to take part in this questionnaire, which will collect data on health, breeding, behaviour and morbidity”
