What’s in a name?

At its meeting on 20 February 2001, the KC General Committee gave further consideration to the registration of Canadian Eskimo Dogs as a distinct breed from Greenland Dogs. It was agreed that Canadian Eskimo Dogs would be included on the Breed Register in the Working Group with immediate effect.

Therefore, imported dogs from Canada may now be registered as Canadian Eskimo Dogs, as well as those of Canadian origin which were recently registered as Greenland Dogs.

At the same meeting, the Committee approved a change to the nomenclature of the Japanese Akita, and it has been agreed that the breed is to be known as the Akita. This will be effective from 1 July 2001.

Annex “A” to “B” Regulations should be amended accordingly as from the dates given.
