The first ever Kooikerhondje Breed Health Seminar will take place on Saturday 12 April 2014 at Buckingham University in Buckingham. The principal speaker will be the internationally renowned Kooikerhondje breed health expert Dr Peter Madingers of Utrecht University and a full programme and booking form shall be available shortly. Although tailored towards the Kooikerhondje the genetics and principles are transferable to all breeds. As such, we invite anyone with an interest in the health considerations before breeding a litter to attend.
As with all responsible dog clubs, the Kooikerhondje Club of Great Britain care deeply about the health of our breed. In order for us to stay on the pulse of the health of the breed we ask that all owners, past or present, take two minutes to complete the health survey below. Please complete a survey for each of your Kooikerhondje. These results will be collated and presented at the Club’s next AGM in February 2014.
The Kooikerhondje Club of Great Briatin will be holding a single breed open show on Saturday 8th June at Stevonton Village Hall, Oxfordshire, OX13 6AA. Entries close on the 10th May, and schedules can be downloaded from our links page. This is a fantastic chance to meet a large group of Kooikers, so if you are interested in the breed please come along!
Kooikerhondje reclassified to the Utility group
At the same meeting, the Kennel Club also confirmed that the Lagotto Romagnolo and Spanish Water Dog will remain in the Gundog Group (Utility sub-group).
Consideration of the group classification of the three breeds arose because of the requirement for gundog judges to attend a working event for the breed concerned in order to achieve approval to judge at CC level in the Gundog group.
