New Breed Health Survey For Miniature Bull Terriers Supported By Kennel Club

19 September 2013    11:00

The Kennel Club is supporting a recently launched Breed Health Survey for Miniature Bull Terriers, designed to give a stronger picture of the health of the breed in the UK and internationally.

The survey, compiled by the Miniature Bull Terrier Club, will help the breed to put any problems in context by asking owners to submit reports on their healthy dogs as well as those with diagnosed health conditions.

The survey can be completed by anyone who owns a Miniature Bull Terrier, whether Kennel Club registered or not, and all information supplied will be treated in complete confidence, with no names of dogs, or owner details ever being published.

The survey will provide meaningful data that can be used, if required, by researchers focusing on canine health issues.  After the survey period has ended, the results will be analysed and published anonymously on the breed club website and the Kennel Club website.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: "We would recommend that as many owners of Miniature Bull Terriers as possible, whether their dogs are Kennel Club registered or not, take part in this survey to help safeguard the health of the breed.

"The survey only takes a few minutes to complete and the results could prove invaluable in delivering an accurate picture of the health of the breed as a whole, which will help to protect it in the future and further improve the health of this lovely breed."

The Kennel Club is helping to promote the survey by contacting owners of registered Miniature Bull Terriers to encourage them to complete the questionnaire.

The survey is available for completion online and can be found on the Miniature Bull Terrier Club's website at and is running until 31st December.
