Norwegian Ruling Re: Breeding English Bulldogs and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels

As you may be aware, a verdict was reached in Norway recently regarding the Norwegian Society for the Protection of Animals’ lawsuit against the Norwegian Kennel Club, the Norwegian Cavalier Klub, The Norwegian Bulldog Club and 6 breeders for unethical breeding. The court ruled that breeding English Bulldogs and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels is a violation of Section 25 of the Norwegian Animal Welfare Act. The Norwegian government voted to amend the Act in July 2021 to hold breeders more accountable for breeding healthy dogs.

While it is now illegal to breed these two breeds in Norway, the ruling does not prevent one from owning or competing with these breeds. The ban will also not prevent the breeding of poorly bred, unregistered breeds from random sources. CKC has not reviewed the 60-page verdict (available in Norwegian only) and is unable to comment on the case beyond the details known at this time.

CKC understands that banning the breeding of specific breeds does not serve as a one-size-fits-all solution for this complex issue. Breed clubs and breeders play an important role in promoting the health and welfare of brachycephalic breeds through education, health testing and breeding advancements. CKC is working on several initiatives to support breed health improvement. We are confident that a more productive approach involves education and the collaboration of multi-stakeholders including CVMA and the International Partnership for Dogs.
