Reports urges health certificates for puppies after Crufts scandal


The scandal saw the BBC scrapping its coverage of Crufts for the first
time in 42 years
Valerie Elliott

Puppies should be sold with a full family medical history to alert new
owners to the risk of genetic disorders, an inquiry will recommend  
today.

All future sales must be accompanied by a contract stating that the
dog?s parents have undergone health checks before breeding to ensure
puppies are born free from genetic disorders, MPs and peers will say.

The Associate Parliamentary Group for Animal Welfare recommends that
breeders provide a veterinary certificate confirming that the dog?s
parents have been screened for health defects prior to mating.

Other recommendations include:

? a statutory limit on the number of times a dog can sire puppies, to
prevent inbreeding;

? random checks on breeders;

? that all pedigree dogs be microchipped;

? that champion showdogs undergo health screening before prizes are  
awarded;

? guidelines to inform owners about what to look for in a healthy  
dog....
