Breed Health Improvement: Looking back and looking forward

Back in 2011, Philippa Robinson’s KarltonIndex published its first review and assessment of the work being done by Breed Clubs to address concerns about the health of pedigree dogs.  Ian Seath’s breed (Dachshunds) was assessed as “Top Dogs” for their work.  Towards the end of 2011, Ian started putting together some thoughts on an approach for developing a Breed Improvement Strategy.  The presentation here, captures that early thinking and many of its ideas made their way into the Kennel Club’s Health Improvement Strategy Guide (pdf) which was published in 2012.

Looking forward to 2015, the KarltonIndex will be carrying out a third review of the progress being made by Breed Clubs.  Breed Health Co-ordinators, committee members and breeders are invited to participate in an evaluation of the KI process, starting with a short survey. [Survey closes January 31st 2015]
