Breed Watch


Breed Watch logo

Breed Watch serves as an 'early warning system' to identify points of concern for individual breeds. Its primary purpose is to enable anyone involved in the world of dogs, but in particular dog show Judges, to find out about any breed specific conformational issues which may lead to health problems. These conditions are known as a 'point(s) of concern'.

To find out more information about Breed Watch and how the points of concern are added and removed you can download a copy of the flow diagram or the FAQs.

Please enter part of the breed name you would like to search for in the box below and select the button. You can also browse using the breed list displayed.
