You have to sigh sometimes

Spring is coming and many, not just Glen of Imaal Terrier people, are contemplating forthcoming matings. Part of the process with the selling of the (hoped for) puppies is to insure them so new owners will have peace of mind for those first important weeks. As we are talking pedigree Kennel Club registered puppies the mind usually turns to using the KC insurance but if you do keep something in mind.

If a fellow exhibitor who has ever bred anything is having one of your puppies-the intention of many matings-the KC insurance WILL NOT be valid. The terms and conditions say that cover will not be available for…and there on the list is “another breeder“. The KC have been asked about this and the reply was “oh yes, that’s quite correct. It’s aimed at first/pet owners”. Anybody got any idea why, once again, the established pedigree owner is discriminated against, and seemingly by our own Kennel Club?
