Breed-Specific Health Programs

Sign in to follow this  
One concern for purebred dogs is health conditions that arise due to the conformation, temperament and use of the dog. Breed characteristics, especially those reflecting extreme conformations may represent potential health or welfare concerns. In attempt to address such issues, some Kennel Clubs have instituted programs aimed at detecting dogs with health issues and/or not rewarding conformation shows.
