    What exactly do you have to be involved with to be thrown out of a breed club?
    perhaps this?

    That is absolutely sick. How can they possibly claim to be interested in Cavalier welfare.

    Apparently she was banned from the club but eventually reinstated despite being tried and convicted on 83 counts of animal cruelty -- and that was her first show back judging.

    If it was a conviction to do with children or elderly care... can you imagine the outrage if someone was then given a job back in the field?

    Truly bizarre.

    Sick, just sick. Sicker still are those who are rallying round in support.

    Sins,

    That place believe me was no worse than the place in which Donna and I went into and took a Cavalier from a while ago, my late Lucy. A throw out.

    The breeder was an Acc breeder on the K.C list, they removed the Acc status after pressure due to intervention, and it took ALOT of pressure. Might add here as well that the RSPCA didn't want to get involved on this one but she still advertises on there alot, and still breeding.....Cavs and Shelties.

    Alison.

    To qualify for the accredited breeder scheme all you have to do is fill in a form and pay a small fee. The chances of ever being inspected are tiny -- and generally require complaints and even then as Alison notes, it can be a struggle to get them to do anything.

    So what is the point of a puppy buyer choosing a breeder from a scheme that anyone can pay to join to make themselves look better?

    The KC has said it plans to overhaul the scheme but really it would need some sort of rigorous examination and a fast-action complaint system.

    we were once looking for a rescue cav and after making enquiries were given her contact details as she had some "foster" dogs . But were told not to ring that day as she would be busy. turned out she was busy because she was in court that day !

    I dont care what your opinion on her is you dont give rescue dogs to someone who is up in court on cruelty charges

    Angry

    It's a great pity that wasn't in the Pedigree Dogs Exposed program. Can you imagine impact that would have had????

    Pauline, I agree with you wholeheartedly, someone should contact the papers and remind them of this -keep the pressure on.
