KENNEL CLUB LIAISON COUNCILS
On returning to its London headquarters The Kennel Club set about the task of re-writing and arranging all Breed Standards using a set sequence of sub-heading and rather abbreviated language. The results of a long interchange of views, preceded careful scrutiny by a panel of veterinary advisors to ensure no part of any Breed Standard predisposed any breed to debilitating inherited conditions. The results eventually presented to each Breed Council or Parent Club for approval before being final adoption during 1988/1989. Although the language and style has not gained universal approval, and universal Standards are as far away as ever, the Kennel Club does not envisage any major revision in the foreseeable future.
Recent items supported and/or initiated by the Rough Collie Breed Council have included:
