The aim of this site

The main aim of this site is to provide prospective pedigree dog owners with information about the possible health issues each breed suffers so that they can make informed choices when they decide what breed of dog they want.  Owners will be able to find, for example, lists of diseases to which certain breeds are predisposed and more in depth articles about particular breeds.

A secondary aim is to make a contribution, however small it may be, towards bringing pressure to bear on dog breeders, kennel clubs and dog breed associations, to change their breeding practices and breed standards.
