At the AGM on 26/2/17 the membership voted to make a change to the code of ethics – point 24 – change in bold below:

24.  As the Finnish Lapphund is a late maturing breed, no breeder shall breed from any bitch, or allow his/her dog to be used on any bitch before she is 24 months of age except on the written advice of a veterinary surgeon.

This is subject to KC approval
