An update on the KC’s 2014 Pedigree Breed Health Survey

The survey was launched to the public on the 8th November of this year at Discover Dogs. So far, the KC has received over 27,000 individual responses across all breeds, representing over 30,000 dogs.

If you have not yet filled in a survey for your dog, you can access it online here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/PBHS2014

With more participation, we gain more robust data, giving a better representation of the population.

The survey is open to all owners of Kennel Club registered pedigree dogs that are over 6 months of age. There is also a morbidity section on dogs that have deceased since 31st December 2004. Thus, we would encourage anyone with a Kennel Club registered dog, including dogs that have not had health problems and dogs that have passed away since 2004, to fill out the survey and help us to get as strong a picture of dog health as possible.

The results of the survey will be made freely and publically available on the Kennel Club website once the results have been collected and statistically analysed.

As a little ‘thank you’ for participating in the survey, the KC is also offering the opportunity to win Amazon vouchers worth £200, £100 and £50, with completed surveys.

The Pedigree Breed Health Survey is available to be completed until 25th December 2014.
