To help improve our knowledge and awareness of health issues in the dogs that we register, The Kennel Club have carried out a number of extensive research projects.
2004 purebred dog health survey
The Kennel Club and the British Small Animal Veterinary Association Scientific Committee joined forces with scientists in the Epidemiology Unit at the Animal Health Trust to carry out a nationwide survey of purebred dogs.
2014 pedigree breed health survey
The 2014 pedigree breed health survey summarises the results found from nearly 50,000 dogs represented by the completed questionnaires.
Effective population size - population analysis
The Kennel Club's population analysis reports allow breeders and those involved in canine health to review the unique situation of each breed.
