Breeding Test (Ankörung) – Saturday 27th April

Norton Lindsey, Warwickshire, CV35 8JQ

If you are interested in breeding from your dog or in your dog becoming a stud dog then there are three parts to the testing. The health tests, a character test and a test of conformation to breed standard. The health tests we can guide you through but require veterinary bookings with appropriate specialists. The character and conformation tests are run by the Club and have to be passed in order for your dog to be given Club
approval for breeding. This is entirely modelled on the Swiss system and is designed to ensure that the breed remains fit for purpose, true to breed type and of good character going forward.

We offer the character and conformation tests twice a year in Spring and early Autumn, with the next one being on Saturday 27th April. To be entered for the Club Breeding Test your dog must be at least 18 months of age at the time of the test. The entry form must be returned and payment for the test made to the Club account by Thursday 28th March latest. The test will only run if we have entries and so that those running the tests have sufficient notice whether the test will be going ahead or not late entries will not be possible. The next test after this will be in September 2024 so bear this in mind if you are thinking of breeding from your dog and wanting to plan timings of when a first litter might take place.

Please email for more information and an entry form.
