I know that the Article claimed that the 12 Top Stud Dogs used ,only 2 are from Cavalier Club Members, but what are the Health Test Results from the Cavalier Club Members' Cavaliers who have won the Trophies from the CKCS Club ,were they Health Tested, that is an Important Question that should be being answered
How many CKCS CLUB Members ,who are Breeding Cavaliers ,are Health Testing and following the Breeding Guideline Recommendations,this is a Figure that surely should be being given, also how many Cavaliers with SM and MVD have been Bred by CKCS CLUB Member Breeders, this figure that will also be of Interest.
The Potential Cavalier Buyer only wants to know ,is the Cavalier Breeder Health Testing their Cavalier Breeding Stock,will the CKCS CLUB give this Information .

Bet I have removed your latest post as the moderators do not want this forum to be used for responding to posts on other forums.
Thanks very much.

The PDE TV Program forced the Dog World ,and none more so than some of the Cavalier Breeders having to face up to the Necessity of the Out-Side World's Scrutiny , both He and the PDE Program has forced some of the Cavalier Breeders to face some Uncomfortable Truths about the SM and MVD in our Cavalier Breed.
If I could go back to my Previous Post, since it was Claimed that only 21% of Cavalier CLUB Members Register Cavalier Puppies, , is it to be understood that most of the SM and MVD Problems are due to Cavalier Breeders who are not not Members of the Cavalier Club.
How many of the Cavaliers who became Champions in the Past 3 Years would have been Health Tested ,I would think that all those Champions would belong to CKCS CLUB Members.?
That would give an Indication as to how Seriously the CKCS CLUB Members are taking the SM and MVD Problems in our Cavalier Breed.
Hope-fully this is a Question that will be asked at the Health Seminar on Saturday.
