Latest News from the KC regarding COVID-19
Extract below – see full link for the full release:
The safety and security of competitors, spectators, volunteers and staff at Kennel Club events continues to be of paramount importance. In light of the continued restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Kennel Club has taken the decision with regret to extend its strong recommendation that clubs and societies cancel forthcoming events until the end of September and that serious consideration should be given to events due to be held after this date.
After due consideration listening to our government and the KC guidelines, we need to put the safety of our club members first.
Therefore, The British Gordon Setter Club is postponing our AGM scheduled for the 5th of April and our Open Show scheduled for 6th of June.
Our Breed Appreciation Day planned for the 13th of June will be postponed as well.
As soon as we know the new dates we will inform our members.
Please take care and keep safe out there.
Your BGSC Committee.

The Year Books will be available at Crufts for those of you who are going. Kay Reid has kindly said, as she has limited mobility due to her op, she will be sat at ring side and you can collect them from her.

News from the Kennel Club…
Dear Breed Health Coordinator,
The Kennel Club’s Health Team would like to make you aware that following consultation with the Dog Health Group, the Kennel Club has confirmed that from 1st August 2018, any DNA health test result submitted for inclusion on its database must have at least two forms of identification on the result certificate.
It will be mandatory to include the dog’s microchip or tattoo number along with either the dog’s registered name or registered number. Any test results that do not carry these identifying features will not be accepted.
This brings the recording of DNA test results in line with those health tests carried out by the British Veterinary Association.
If you would be able to disseminate this information amongst breeders and owners in your breed it would be greatly appreciated.
Should you have any queries regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact either myself or another member of the Health Team.
