A new programme of seminars will provide dog breeders with the
latest advice from prominent industry experts on improving breeding
practices and rearing programmes.
Run by the Kennel Club and Royal Canin, the seminars will give
breeders the invaluable opportunity to hear from highly regarded
professionals in the world of canine health. The experts include Dr
Cathryn Mellersh, from the Kennel Club Genetics Centre at the
Animal Health Trust, Dr Angelika von Heimendahl, from the
Veterinary Reproduction Service, and Dr Lorna Kennedy, Senior
Scientist at the University of Manchester.
The seminars, which will take place throughout England and
Scotland between September and December, are open to novice and
experienced breeders alike. The panel will guide breeders through
topics such as avoiding caesareans, identifying a good DNA test and
dealing with autoimmune conditions.
Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary said: "We are pleased to
offer these important seminars that will undoubtedly help to
improve the future health of our dogs. With such a prestigious
panel of speakers, the seminars are a not to be missed opportunity
for all dog breeders, whether they are looking to breed for the
first time or have years of experience; even the most experienced
breeders will find these seminars useful.
"The Kennel Club is passionate about creating a future of happy
and health dogs and it is through seminars like these, and working
with breeders that we will continue to achieve this. We have
thousands of great breeders on the Kennel Club Assured Breeder
Scheme who are putting health first, and through seminars like
these they, and those breeders not yet in the Assured Breeder
Scheme, are able to take advantage of the latest expert advice and
continue to improve the health of dogs."
The seminars cost £25 per person, which includes morning
refreshments, a buffet lunch, afternoon refreshments and a delegate
pack. To book a place at any of the seminars, please visit www.thekennelclub.org.uk/item/4998.
