In this section we present information on issues of breeds and breeding, in general, and present information and links to information about specific breeds. Laws are in place - and being revisited - to monitor and control the transport of dogs. This is an important issue in the European Union, where trade issues across countries are so important. However, enforcement and monitoring is a challenge. Issues of transport are often inter-related to those of welfare and sourcing, including commercial breeding. These latter issues are primarily covered under those headings.
