Accredited Breeder Scheme – DNA Tests
I am writing to advise you that the Kennel Club General Committee has agreed the following changes to the Kennel Club Accredited Breeder Scheme breed-specific requirements and recommendations:
Miniature Smooth-haired Dachshund:
Add requirement: DNA test – PRA cord1.
Miniature Wire-haired Dachshund:
Add recommendation: DNA test – Lafora’s disease.
Please note that these requirements and/or recommendations come into effect on 1 July 2010 and existing members of the Accredited Breeder Scheme have a ‘period of grace’ of six months in order to come into line with the above change(s).
We would be most grateful if you were to communicate the above information to all breed clubs in your breed.
