In a recent commentary in Dog World, online, Simon Parsons said:
" IN TODAY’S world of dog breeding it is impossible for anyone, even the Brits, to exist in isolation. "
" In the 21st century, should it really be the case that breeds are recognised by one governing body, but not another, that health tests results are not uniform, that some kennel clubs (like, to its credit, our own) publish everything about the dogs they register and some (like the American Kennel Club), publish nothing, not even the numbers it registers? "
" So that is why I feel that the International Partnership for Dogs (IPFD), which is aiming to create a ‘DogWellNet’ website co-ordinating data of dog health, breeding and ownership, is one of the most important steps forward of recent times. "
