The Swedish Kennel Club has instituted a routine programme entitled the BSI (Breed Specific Instructions) regarding exaggerations in pedigree dogs.
The BSI are the result of inventories made possible through extensive collaboration between dog show judges, breed clubs, veterinary surgeons and supported by veterinary health insurance statistics. These five factors constitute the basis for the selection of listed breeds and for the written directions for each breed. The structure of the inventory allows for a continuous follow up and dynamic revisions of the BSI.
The current version (2018) of the BSI is available at:
