NEW FILM EXPLORES WHAT 2012 HAS IN STORE FOR DOG HEALTH
‘Dogs – A Healthy Future’ released by the Kennel Club and narrated by Clare Balding, looks at the issues affecting dog health and wellbeing. It also highlights the work the AHT is doing with the Kennel Club to fight inherited disease.
The film focuses on the main issues that affect dog health and welfare, including hereditary diseases, issues created by breeding dogs for the way that they look and the problem of puppy farms that breed dogs for profit without regard for their health and welfare.
The film explores the steps that have already been taken to address these issues and the need for united action in order to ensure that the progress continues in 2012. It highlights what is being done in 2012 to help ensure that dog welfare stays at the top of the agenda.
More information on the work the Kennel Club is doing to improve health and welfare for dogs is available from its website.
