Documentary - BBC - Pedigree Dogs Exposed
Although, I have long been an advocate of kennel clubs and registries, the fact that breeders utilize their services does not mean they are breeding responsibly. The video just barely touches the tip of the iceberg. It illustrates complete failure by the breed clubs, kennel clubs, registries, breeders, judges and the public.
How can we count on breeders and kennel clubs to educate the public? Many live in denial, perpetuate, even aggravate, the genetic disorders to stroke their own ego and line their wallets.
