About registration types

The registration types are as follows:

  • The Breed Register is for pedigree dogs where both parents are also recorded on this register.
  • The Activity Register is open to all dogs, both pedigree and crossbreed to allow them to exhibit in Kennel Club licensed events for disciplines such as agility, flyball etc.
  • Not registered dogs can be viewed if they are related to a Kennel Club registered dog and may themselves be registered elsewhere with another club or society.

Health profile

The results and calculated health information below are from information received and recorded by The Kennel Club, and may not include all health screening undertaken by the dog's owners.

You can find more information on what these results mean/breeding advice and also on what health screening is relevant to your breed.

Screening schemes

BVA/KC Hip Dysplasia Left score: 3 Right score: 3 Total score: 6 Test performed on 08 September 2016; aged 1 years, 5 months
BVA/KC/ISDS Gonioscopy Unaffected Test performed on 24 January 2016; aged 0 years, 10 months

Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs)

Our estimated breeding values (EBVs) predict whether a dog is more or less likely to have, and pass on genes, related to hip/elbow dysplasia. EBVs link the information about dog's family with data from the BVA/KC health schemes. They tell us how the individual dog compares to the rest of the breed:

  • A dog with an EBV that is a minus number has a lower than average risk of having genes linked to hip/elbow dysplasia
  • The higher the EBV (the further towards the red), the higher the risk
  • The confidence reflects how much data was used to calculate the EBV

Genes increase or decrease the chances of a dog developing hip/elbow dysplasia, but the overall health of the dog's joints is also affected by lifestyle, diet, exercise etc. 

EBV Breeding advice: Ideally breeders should use dogs that that have an EBV which is lower than average (i.e. a minus number) and preferably with a confidence rating of at least 60%.

Important notice: Our EBVs are updated several times a year and were last calculated in February 2022.
