    Tamzin Furtado's presentation from the 4th International Dog Health Workshop considers how human behaviours affect welfare.
    "There are good reasons why we should better understand human behaviour:
    It’s the root cause of most welfare issues– people doing, or not doing, certain care, management or training practices. It can help campaigns and work with clients (vets, trainers) to improve compliance, rapport and efficiency. We are used to considering animal behaviour, what about the human animal?"

  25. The Swedish Kennel Club's Breed Specific Instructions (BSI) Programme

    Data compiled 2009-2013 - by Dr Göran Bodegård
     
    The Swedish Kennel Club has instituted a routine programme entitled the BSI (Breed Specific Instructions) regarding exaggerations in pedigree dogs.
     
    The BSI are the result of inventories made possible through extensive collaboration between dog show judges, breed clubs, veterinary surgeons and supported by veterinary health insurance statistics. These five factors constitute the basis for the selection of listed breeds and for the written directions for each breed. The structure of the inventory allows for a continuous follow up and dynamic revisions of the BSI.
     
    The current version (2018) of the BSI is available at:
    https://www.skk.se/globalassets/dokument/utstallning/breed-special-specific-instructions---bsi-a8.pdf
