    SKV Breeding Strategy for Swedish Vallhund (Västgötaspets, Vizigothic Spitz) The goal of the Specialty Club for Västgötaspets (SKV) is to raise interest for and promote breeding of sound, mentally and exteriorly good specimens of Swedish Vallhund as well as preserving the specific characteristics and attributes of the breed in accordance with the breed standard for Swedish Vallhund, as established by the FCI.
  2. It is great to see the increased momentum for addressing issues of health and welfare in brachycephalics around the world. IPFD hopes to facilitate collaborative international efforts across multiple stakeholder groups. It is clear that this issue is a global one and requires a coordinated approach to be truly effective. Perhaps what is also needed is a recognition that these are complex challenges, with no easy solution. The issues involve not only medicine and science, but are fraught with emotion and influenced by long-held beliefs. Aspects of human-dog interactions both enrich and complicate the situation. Success is most likely to come from positive collaborative efforts where all stakeholders take responsibility for their own roles and work together on common goals, rather than trying to criticize others and apportion blame. There is a need for information and evidence, compiled and interpreted in a logical and unbiased way. There is a need to share resources, experience and expertise, with reduction of redundant efforts. There is need for courage, as this is a challenging and evocative issue. But there is also a need for compassion - for the dogs, first of all, but also for owners who may not understand; for breeders who did not set out to purposely create problems; to veterinarians who may struggle with conflict of interest serving their business, their clients and their patients; for dog show judges, many of whom struggle for a balanced approach; and more. The controversies and challenges represent an opportunity now to work together to enhance the health, well-being and welfare of dogs and to support human-dog interactions. See below for a summary of and links to recent international efforts and resources. We will continue to edit and update this document.
  3. Earlier this year SKK arranged a conference on the short-headed dogs. The content of the conference has now been reviewed by a working group and resulted in a statement and strategies for future work on the issue. May of 2016 -- the SKK has posted several news releases pertaining to outlining management strategies for 'snub-nosed' breeds as follow-ups to the February conference.
  4. Sweden In 2001, the Swedish Kennel Club (SKK) initiated a project which is quite unique to the canine world. The task was to create a breed-specific breeding strategy for every breed of dog in Sweden, based on evidence and information gathered from a range of sources. Hence, the breeding plan should be tailored to the conditions of the individual breed and consider all aspects relevant in the breeding goal for that breed, i.e., physical and mental health as well as population structure and genetic variation.
