The independent Advisory Council on the Welfare Issues of Dog Breeding met for the first time earlier this month. The DEFRA-supported group aims to develop an action plan to combat health problems caused by inherited disease and exaggerated features. Glynn Evans, game and gamekeeping officer at BASC, said: ?We welcome the formation of the advisory council. Any advice that it can produce that will help gundog breeders will be useful.?
