In preparation for the 2020 Referendum this Fall, the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) is taking steps to move three (3) miscellaneous breeds toward Full Recognition.
CKC invites Canadian breeders and owners of the following three (3) breeds to register to vote on the Rules of Eligibility (ROE) and move these breeds to Full Recognition with CKC:
- Japanese Akita
- Parson Russell Terrier
- Russkiy Toy
ROE are a requirement of CKC under the Animal Pedigree Act (APA) for all purebred animals under its jurisdiction. ROE are meant to establish broad and key traits for each breed to be used for registration considerations only. The ROE are not to be confused with the much more extensive breed standards that detail the ideal structural, physical and temperamental characteristics of a dog representing a breed. These specific characteristics describe a sound and healthy dog that is capable of carrying out its original purpose.
Breeders and owners are encouraged to support their breeds and vote. Visit our dedicated webpage
