The Kennel Club has decided to shoot the messenger and is complaining to Ofcom about a BBC documentary on genetic illnesses in pedigree dogs.
The message put across by the programme was that all their disabilities, their illnesses, were caused by something which the Kennel Club had done, to the point where we were likened to Nazis. - Caroline Kisko
The Times report suggests that "Antagonism towards the Kennel Club heightened when a senior official was filmed voicing approval for breeding female dogs with male offspring." which I can't verify, as the documentary was on too long ago for an iPlayer showing. But if true paints a picture that suggests Caroline Kisko's Nazi analogy, while tasteless (no matter how many dogs are suffering due to this eugenics they aren't humans) could be reasonably accurate. When even the sponsor of your show is making public statements of concern, you should worry.
The British Veterinary Association has heard that these disease problems due to inbreeding are serious enough that some breeds are in danger of dying out and would it be such a tragedy to see them go, breading traits for fashion and showing should stop, no domestic dog needs to be anything other than 'dog' the only selectable traits that need to be minded are those that keep a working dog warm and well tempered with the sheep. An end to specialist breeds could hopefully mean less murderous sociopathic dogs.
