Have i said enough?
below is the letter i have written to the kennel club, does it sound ok? have i covered enough points?
I am writing this letter in regards to the Television program “pedigree dogs exposed”. I was shocked and horrified to see the attitude of yourself and others on the program. I have always looked upon the kennel club as a organisation with dogs best interests at heart and a force for good, I also always looked forward to seeing Crufts each year but not I just feel sick that I could be unwittingly condoning the behaviours shown on the show.
You say on the program that if you made it compulsory for a dog to be health checked before they are shown you would lose the breeders. This I disagree with. They breed these dogs to be shown at your shows, so if they want to continue they would need by abide those rules.
It is also scientific fact that inbreeding weakens animals of any species, yet the kennel club seems to actively encourage this practice. Can you truly not see what you are doing? You are actively allowing dogs to be bred that will spend their lives in discomfort and even some in pain.
