KC Health Survey 2014


KC Breed Population Analyses September 2015

Recognising the importance of managing the rate of inbreeding, the Kennel Club's Population analysis reports allow breeders to review the unique situation for each breed.

If unchecked, inbreeding levels can rise in a breed, and although its effects may not initially be noticeable, this increase can have a significant impact on the health and welfare of future generations. Follow this link to the KC website and scroll down to find the Flatcoated Retriever Report.
