See the article prepared for DogWellNet on the work of the the SCC's Club du Bulldogue Français for maintaining the health and well-being of the breed: Club du Bouledogue Français - CBF ACTION FOR THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF THE FRENCH BULLDOG.
UK - VULNERABLE NATIVE BREEDS -- The Bearded Collie -- Check out the collaborative work done by the Bearded Collie Clubs in the UK by the Joint Breed Liaison Committee (JBLC) -- get info on breeding strategies and health in the breed.
This group of UK based clubs knows how to include stakeholders in the process of creating a breeding strategy!
"The development of a strategy for the Breed owned by all of the Breed Clubs and their members is a new venture for the Breed and is an ongoing process. The JBLC have aimed for a strategy that is transparent, inclusive and represents the views of the majority of people involved with the Breed, to encourage people to sign up to it and work to achieve the proposed actions. Hopefully the time spent engaging and listening to people in the development stage of the strategy will lead to one that is based on current best advice from Geneticists, will engage the Kennel Club and be welcomed by the Breed Clubs and their members."
