A new website ‘Mate Select’ has been launched by the Kennel Club to try to help produce healthy pedigree puppies and reduce a range of genetic problems associated with inbreeding. When dogs are inbred over the years they start to have various genetic disadvantages such as weaker joints or breathing difficulties. The club’s website aims to get the pedigree breeders online to perform hypothetical matings of dogs, to see what impact this will have on the health of the pedigree puppies produced. Every dog registered with the kennel Club will be available on the site so buyers will know the exact health status of the puppies they are planning to buy.
