Bloodhounders continue to move forward
Representatives of the Association of Bloodhound Breeders and the Bloodhound Club, who met in July with Kennel Club Secretary, Caroline Kisko, and the KC Canine Geneticist, Dr Jeff Sampson have continued to progress towards the protection and improvement of the breed.
The meeting had addressed serious concerns over the various threats which exist in, and which must be addressed by, the Bloodhound breed (and others) and the potential consequences of not taking positive and urgent action.
Several suggestions were put forward, which both sides found to be satisfactory. The Association of Bloodhound Breeders and the Bloodhound Club will now discuss the proposals fully at a joint meeting in November and the Kennel Club awaits the two clubs’ formal response accordingly.
The Kennel Club looks forward to working with the Bloodhound breed to do everything possible to move away from the position of vulnerability and the threat to the breed generally.
