What do people think about having a Breeding Dog Register and to be on the register the dogs has to have the relevant health tests specific to the breed and signed off as fit to breed from. This would reduce the risk of hereditary diseases success as Elbow and Hip Dysplasia, some cancers breathing and mobility problems being passed on through the generations. To run the register and pay for welfare inspectors to check health inspect premises, enforce and prosecute where necessary we would have to find funding as the government does not have any to finance this. What do people think about bringing back the annual dog licence for a fee of under £20 this could finance all of the above and more.... We have a government petition on our facebook page Paws Against Elbow Dysplasia which if we get the necessary signatures will force the government to at least discuss this subject. If all breeds also had to have a breeding licence it would mean all puppies could be trace right back to their place of origin and their breed line. Puppy buyers would know to ensure their puppies parents were on the Breeding Dog Register and thus health checked.. a one stop shop so to speak.... I can save families heartache of coping will a poorly dog and huge financial costs in vet bills and insurance premiums.
