We noticed, when registering our latest litter, that there are a couple of changes to the KC Rules.

  • The first is that from the 1st January this year, the Kennel Club will no longer register litters beyond 4 litters per bitch.
  • The second applies where a bitch has had 2 C-Section Deliveries.  No other litters can be registered with the KC unless for scientifically proven welfare reasons, and this normally applies only if an application is made prior to mating.

Hoorah!!  Do I hear you shout?  These changes were much needed, but I fear will still do little to curb the practices of puppy farming.
