The Kennel Club have sent us the annual Judges Health Monitoring Summary for 2015 and encouraged us to share this with Breed Club members and exhibitors.
They went on to say:
The Breed Standards and Conformation Sub-Group of the Dog Health Group noted that over 70 dogs were reported as having loose eyelids. The group is concerned by these reports and would invite any comments in regard to addressing this issue.

We hope you will find this site of interest and help to you. The committee and officers of the club work hard and try their best to provide a useful and enjoyable club.
The Kennel Club is pleased to announce the launch of its new online learning resource, the Kennel Club Academy, home to accessible education to support those involved in the world of dogs.The Kennel Club Academy can be viewed here:
At present eight learning resources are available on the Breeder Education area of the Kennel Club Academy, with further films and resources to be added during 2016 & 2017. The first learning resources cover topics to be considered before breeding. I would encourage you to both take a look at the films and resources available and further to please share information on the Kennel Club Academy to any friends or those you feel would be interested.A full list of resources currently available can be viewed below:
Unfortunately with many changes to Trophy Stewards many of these over time have not been returned.
The committee would ask for everyone to share this with members current and old that we are doing a Trophy amnesty and ask for people to check their cupboards to see if they have any Trophies that might belong to the Club.
Please, could these be returned to any committee member at any show or event, no questions will be asked.
It would be lovely if we could find all the missing and unaccounted for trophies.
Thank you from the committee.

|Consider the weather and your journey in advance, especially if you don’t have air conditioning in your car. Think about whether the journey is absolutely necessary for your dog.||Leave a dog unattended in a car, even with the window open and water available. Take them out of the car and leave them in a secure, cool place with access to shade and water or take them with you, there are plenty of places that are part of the Kennel Club’s Open for Dogs scheme and will allow dogs in.|
|Plan your journey. Check out the Kennel Club’s Open for Dogs site and use the Dog Friendly app to find places that will allow dogs in with you.||Let your dog take part in unnecessary exertion in hot weather, or stand in exposed sunlight for extended lengths of time.|
|Make sure your dog has plenty of space in the car and isn’t squashed or forced to sit in direct sunlight.||Pass by a dog if you see one suffering in a car. Whether it be in a supermarket car park or at a show, make sure you let someone in authority know and if in doubt call the police or the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999.|
|Make sure plenty of stops are taken with lots of water available to drink.|
|Take cold water in a thermos rather than a plastic bottle so it stays cold rather than being lukewarm. Ice cubes are helpful in a thermos for cooling too.|
To help avoid the need to leave dogs unattended in cars, the Kennel Club ‘Open for Dogs’ campaign encourages more businesses and services to welcome dogs. Thousands of dog-friendly attractions are listed on the website http://www.openfordogs.org.uk/, making it the ideal way to plan for trips for the whole family including your dog.
