In response to the concerns expressed to the Kennel Club
regarding the judging of German Shepherd Dogs, the matter was
debated by the General Committee at its meeting this week. The
committee identified the complexity of the issues and agreed these
would benefit from further in-depth consideration.
A working party has been formed to give greater consideration to
these issues and is expected to make initial recommendations in
advance of the June committee meeting. The working party will
include a panel specifically appointed to bring relevant expertise
to the debate including veterinary surgeons and breed experts.
