Tuesday, 28 May 2019

In accordance with Regulations Part 6 – The Register & Registrations Clause 8.17 an online survey is now available from the link provided below.

ANKC is seeking feedback as to whether a Litter Registration Limitation is to be applied to litters mated on or after 1 June 2020, where the minimum breeding age for Labrador bitches is 18 months at the time of mating (unless a veterinary certificate is produced stating that for health reasons the bitch should be mated before 18 months).

If litter registration limitations are approved for the Minimum Breeding Age for Labrador Retriever bitches, breeders of litters whelped on or after 1 June, 2020, will be required to comply with the requirements as a prerequisite to registration of any litter on the ANKC Ltd Main Register. Litters which do not meet the above requirements will only be able to be placed on the Limited Register and will be flagged not to be upgraded.

A majority of registered owners within the breed and responding to this survey must be in favour before approval is given by the ANKC Ltd.

Survey link:

Responses to the survey are required by 24 August 2019.
