    • The French Kennel Club - SOCIÉTÉ CENTRALE CANINE (SCC) - was founded in 1881 as a non-profit organization by dog fanciers aiming to replenish native dog breeds and to bring in and establish foreign ones as well. The Société Centrale Canine became soon the reference canine organization, being recognized as a public interest organization by decree of the Council of State in April 1914. The SCC is proud to be one of the founders of the FCI in 1911, together with the Kennel Clubs from Germany, Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands.

      The French stud book: THE LIVRE DES ORIGINES FRANÇAIS - LOF
      The French stud book has been opened on the 11th of March 1885, with the entry of Marco, a French pointing griffon bred by Mr. Boulet from Normandy. The LOF is the sole official stud book approved by the French Ministry of Agriculture in 1957 to issue pedigrees. It enables the "traceability" of pedigree dog origins, continuously improved thanks to genetics. Only dogs registered in the LOF are entitled to the name "dog breed" which justifies a higher price than a cross dog, of appearance or racial type. A LOF dog has a pedigree. This is the only genealogical book dedicated exclusively to the canine species in our country, which celebrated its 130th anniversary in 2015!

      Pedigrees

       

      scc5gen.pngIn 2012 the work of the Breeding commission enabled the SCC to set up birth certificates and 3-generation pedigrees « enriched » with information about DNA (identification, parentage), selection rating,  health and performances (breed standard compliance and work).

      In 2016 the SCC expanded upon the initial work done to 5-generation pedigrees containing even more key genealogical information.

      Development of the enriched The 5-Generation Pedigree is a effort which highlights the SCC's and their affiliated breed club's commitment to support education of breeders and owners -- the 5-Generation Pedigree spotlighting value-added traits and qualities important to purebred dog's health and welfare.

      Identification: the Fichier National Canin – FNC, since 1/01/2013: I-CAD
      At the request of the Ministry of Agriculture, the SCC founded in 1971 the National Dog Register, a data base for all dogs, purebred or not, identified by tattoo and/or microchip.
       
      The register is accessible to town halls, veterinarians, firemen, police forces and dog rescues.
       
      Key figures:
      •    over 10 million dogs listed
      •    over 700,000 dogs registered per year

       

      SNVEL - I-CAD

      Since the 1st of January 2013, the SNVEL (the National Union of Veterinary Surgeons) and the SCC have founded a joint structure, called I-CAD, the sole body authorised by the Ministry of Agriculture to manage the National Register for the Identification of Domestic Carnivores.

       

      Shows and working trials - History
      The first French Dog Show took place in 1863, in the Jardin d'Acclimatation, Bois de Boulogne, just outside of Paris. In spite of the patronage of H.I.H Prince Napoleon, who showed a pack of foxhounds, almost twenty years went by before the establishment of the French Kennel Club for the improvement of dog breeds native to France.

      Many thanks to SCC's Health and Genetic Resources Project Manager, Fleur Marie Missant, for this explanation in English!


      Starting 1st of January 2019, new requirements for registering a DNA test result in the French Kennel club database will be effective.

      This change of the rules for registering data in our database has several goals : traceability as asked by the ISO 9001 certification, reliability of data present on the official documents edited by the Société Centrale Canine (pedigree, online database,…), and better information of breeders and owners who are using these genetic tests.

      Traceability
      The identification of the veterinarian responsible for the sampling, date of sampling and date of result are mandatory to register a result, in addition to the identification of the dog (microchip, name and breed) and the result. This means that the result will be traceable from the sampling to our database.

      Reliability
      The identification of the veterinarian responsible for the sampling certifies the identity of the dog tested. This is why we will no longer register results without information about the veterinarian (veterinary register number if it applies, name and address).
      The information of the name of the disease and the name of the gene tested plus the identification of the mutation are also a great indicator of reliability of the result.

      Moreover, it is strongly recommended for all laboratories to be part of the Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs Project. This project will help users in choosing a laboratory and also a test relevant for their situation, and this is an initiative that we want to promote for its comprehensive and global approach.

      Better inform users
      Results must be written in French or English, so that the breeder but also potential puppy buyers can fully understand.
      The clearer way to express results is to mention “clear”, “carrier” or “affected” or the alleles of the dog, this expression must be universal (independent of the laboratory) to be clear to all users. The best way to present results is to have an interpretation of it : What is the percentage of risk for this dog to develop the disease ? What is the percentage of risk to pass it down to its offspring ?
