This has been posted on the Cavalier Club website today.
It would be a good idea if the KC and BVA also gets some non-club members opinions as well.
I'll post some names and addresses later today.
My first reaction is to reluctantly agree with this compromise as the results will be publicly available ( if you know or are told where to look )
There has been three and a half years of foot dragging. The Cavalier Breed needs this Scheme to be launched.
KC RESPONSE TO THE CAVALIER KCS CLUB BALLOT OF MEMBERS RE:
PROPOSAL FOR RECORDING & PUBLICATION OF RESULTS BY THE KENNEL CLUB UNDER THE NEW BVA/KC CM/SM SCHEME
The Cavalier Clubs Health Representative has received the following response from the Kennel Club relating to the recent ballot of Cavalier Clubs members on the proposed recording of SM/CM Scheme results.
The KC have asked for further comments from Club Members and if you wish to comment then please WRITE to the CKCS Club Secretary, 18 Churchill Crescent, Thame, Oxon OX9 3JN.
Please note that comments must be in writing and not by email, email comments WILL NOT be accepted.
"I understand that yesterday, the Finance & General Purposes Committee of the KC discussed in depth the issue of publication of results under the BVA/KC CM/SM Scheme and the view of this group was that they were minded to take an intermediate approach with regard to publication;
We have been instructed to communicate with the Cavalier breed clubs again with this information, before the matter goes to the General Committee for a decision on the 12th July to further assess the clubs’ reactions and responses.
- Registration documents should be annotated: BVA/KC CM/SM Scheme: ‘Tested at (age of dog)’ or ‘No result recorded’.
- A similar list should appear in the Breed Records Supplement.
- The actual CM and SM grades, which will be recorded on the KC database, should be available on the online health test results finder (HTRF) and those wishing to access these results via the HTRF will also have access to a comprehensive description of what the test result means.
Therefore I would be grateful if you could communicate this information to the clubs and let me have any feedback.
