IFR Meeting 07 - 08 july 2018 - certification of international breed suitability.

All Member Clubs, especially their breed wardens, have been invited to a meeting that will be organized on 07-08 july 2018 in Switzerland.

The need for a broad genepool of dogs that have been assessed on their physical and genetic health and on their conformation to the FCI standard, has indeed never been more acute than today.   To attain this goal, we must perhaps not aim at a complete homogeneity of all our breeding regulations as this would be unrealistic due to historical, legal and cultural reasons, but these must at least show homogeneity in the definition of the breed and in the establishment of minimal characteristics to be present before a dog can and may be declared breed suitable.   

The meeting will discuss and demonstrate all existing regulations and tests and will introduce discussions and proposals for communal minimal criteria, both in breeding regulations and breed suitability tests, so these can be established and then imposed by all member clubs to their members and which must lead to a certification of an international breed suitability of breeding dogs.  

We are convinced that all Memberclubs are aware of the extremely important nature of this Meeting and its possible implications for the future of our beloved Rottweiler and we sincerely hope that all Memberclubs will be represented !

Vis Unita Fortior !!
