  2. The welfare of dogs and cats involved in commercial practices: a review of the legislation across EU countries

    http://www.dogandcatwelfare.eu
    Executive Summary
    The EU Dog & Cat Alliance was established  in 2014 and brings together dog and cat  welfare organisations from across the EU. The Alliance is calling for EU action to build  a better Europe for dogs and cats.
    Currently there is no EU legislation protecting cats and dogs in the context of commercial practices, other than rules on transport and health requirements when moved over borders. Legislation to protect the welfare of dogs and cats involved in commercial practices is therefore left to EU Member States.
    National legislation can vary greatly across the EU, with strict legislation in some countries, and little at all in others. This situation can have serious consequences for animal welfare, but also for animal health, human health, consumer protection and the functioning of the internal market.
    To assess the national legislation relating to dogs and cats involved in commercial practices in the EU, the EU Dog & Cat Alliance gathered information on identification and registration, breeding, trade and surgical mutilations  from each of the EU’s 28 Member States on the basis of a list of questions. The results are summarised in this report.

  4. The Kennel Club Breed Health Improvement Stategy - A Step by Step Guide

    2020 - The Kennel Club - Breed Health Improvement Strategy Toolkit
    https://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/health-and-dog-care/health/breed-health-co-ordinators/breed-health-improvement-strategy-toolkit/  
    NOTE: The downloadable PDF available here is an ARCHIVED document. 
     
    The Kennel Club
    BREED HEALTH IMPROVEMENT STRATEGY: A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE
    "This collection of tool kits is a resource intended to help Breed Health Coordinators maintain, develop and promote the health of their breed.. The Kennel Club recognise that Breed Health Coordinators are enthusiastic and motivated about canine health, but may not have the specialist
    knowledge or tools required to carry out some tasks. We hope these tool kits will be a good resource for current Breed Health Coordinators, and help individuals, who are new to the role,make a positive start.
    By using these tool kits, Breed Health Coordinators can expect to:
    • Accelerate the pace of improvement and depth of understanding of the health of their breed
    • Develop a step-by-step approach for creating a health plan
    • Implement a health survey to collect health information and to monitor progress
    The initial tool kit is divided into two sections, a Health Strategy Guide and a Breed Health Survey Toolkit."

  5. The Kennel Club - Breed Specific DNA Tests - versions

    The use of DNA tests to manage dog health in populations of purebred dog breeds is constantly changing; new tests for mutations and breed specific tests are being introduced at a rapid pace.
    The Kennel Club recognises DNA tests and schemes in conjunction with breed clubs and laboratories, some of which are recorded by the Kennel Club on the registration database and are available to view via the online tool Health Test Results Finder.
    PLEASE NOTE: The files available here as downloads are ARCHIVED content that displays the DNA tests available for each breed along with an indication as to whether the test is part of the Assured Breeder Scheme (recommended or required) and whether it is recorded on the Kennel Club registration database. DNA tests are not yet available for every breed.
    Please see current (2020) information including the KC's coverage of  DNA tests at...

    Tamzin Furtado's presentation from the 4th International Dog Health Workshop considers how human behaviours affect welfare.
    "There are good reasons why we should better understand human behaviour:
    It’s the root cause of most welfare issues– people doing, or not doing, certain care, management or training practices. It can help campaigns and work with clients (vets, trainers) to improve compliance, rapport and efficiency. We are used to considering animal behaviour, what about the human animal?"
