The Kennel Club is developing Breed Health and Conservation Plans (BHCPs) for all registered dog breeds to ensure that health concerns are identified through evidence-based criteria. This will ensure breeders have useful information and resources to support them in making balanced breeding decisions in the future.
Irish Wolfhounds are in the next round of breeds identified by the KC for this project so we are inviting ALL OWNERS to complete this simple survey, to provide the KC with an up to date and accurate snapshot of the breed’s current health status.
The survey is anonymous and your answers, along with other sources of scientific evidence, will provide important data for our BHCP.

For Breeders, please complete the Breed Health Survey, but in addition, please also complete this additional survey specifically about your breeding experiences over the last 10 years:
IW Breeders Experience Survey 2018
THIS SURVEY WILL CLOSE AT MIDNIGHT ON FRIDAY 21ST SEPTEMBER
