Welcome!

Hi!

 

Welcome to this blog!

 

SKK, the Swedish Kennel Club, owes its existence to the work of breeders and dog owners. Hence,

breeding issues is one of the most important topics in the organization. The Department of breeding

and health, at the SKK central office in Stockholm, currently employs eight persons. Among our staff

are two breeding consultants, a veterinarian and a geneticist. The department works with various

issues related to breeding, health and behavior in Swedish dogs. For example, we assist the SKK

Breeding Committee, the Temperament in Dogs Committee, and the breed clubs in breeding-related

issues, such as managing health programs and behavior assessments, breeding statistics and genetic

evaluations. We also have access to a broad contact network made up of experts in the field of

veterinary medicine, genetics, ethology and cynology. Moreover, the department plays an important

role in SKK’s education of breeding officials from the clubs.

 

Dog breeding is truly international, and SKK is very pleased with the initiative of the International

Partnership for Dogs, and DogWellNet. We look very much forward to an increased international

collaboration and exchange of information, sharing and caring for our dogs worldwide!

 

By this blog, we hope to give you some more insights to SKK as an organization, to dog breeding in

Sweden, and to current projects and challenges dealt with at SKK’s Department of breeding and

health. For more information about dog breeding in Sweden, please visit: http://www.skk.se/en/Dog-health/Breeding-dogs-in-Sweden/

 

Please, feel free to add comments and questions! We will to our best to answer.

 

Kind regards,

Sofia
