Eurasier Society of the UK
General Code of Ethics contd.
Members who breed Eurasiers agree to:
61. Not pass on a puppy under the age of eight weeks, ideally (and never under the age of seven weeks), to a new owner.
62. Endorse all registrations of puppies ‘Progeny not for Registration’. The purchaser must be advised of this condition of sale, in writing, before purchase has been completed, and advised of the conditions for lifting this restriction.
63. Microchip all their puppies.
64. Provide all new owners with written details on dietary requirements, general care, exercise requirements, dates of worming, and a three-generation pedigree which includes the results of all available hip, elbow, patella, eye and thyroid tests.
65. Keep in touch with new owners, answering questions and giving advice where appropriate, and checking on the Eurasier’s progress.
66. Encourage new owners to join the Eurasier Society UK or another national breed club of good repute.
67. Strongly encourage owners to have their dogs’ hips, patellas, elbows, eyes and thyroid tested at the age of 12 months or older. (Breeders may wish to consider retaining a deposit at the time of purchase, to be refunded when the owner has the tests carried out and makes known the results.).
68. Be responsible for the stock which they have bred and sold and be prepared to take back and either keep or re-house dogs of their own breeding. (If this is not possible, breeders would be expected to make a donation to Welfare & Rescue to defray the expenses incurred).
69. Must ensure that they are fully meeting the legal requirements of their Local Authority. This includes if applicable the application for a Local Authority license to breed.
Breach of these provisions may result in expulsion from club membership, and / or disciplinary action by the Kennel Club, and / or reporting to the relevant authorities for legal action, as appropriate.
