Breed clubs have to be checked, if they are still functional, so for the breed and not for the personalities and personal honours. If people outside clubs complain about the clubs, something should be done about it by analyzing what’s going on, without nasty friendship politics.
If a population under one name developed over the decades into 2 different, and not (or only very little) related breeds, belonging to different breed groups, and intentionally never meant to belong to the same breed, then a separation in the pedigree book is most wishful.( asked for years and years ago!)
For each one some kind of commission can be formed, in order to adjust the correct standard for each of them. It would be logical when the population, not bred according the standard of the original breed, should be nominated to be recognized as a new breed, under a separate name.
This is the best chance to avoid unnecessary and endless quarrels. After some time for each of them the commissions can develop into a breed club for each of one.
Pr Denis said the same words years ago, and was ignored, by the SCC. Their main interest is not breed preservation or we’d know it.
Some figures to ponder:
17 300 000 clicks on Google for the Labradoodle
4 870 000 clicks for the Barbet ” Moderne”
333 000 clicks for thr Vieux Barbet.
Shows rapidly which is rarest and most threatened.
Barbet Moderne is fine and not more than a pedigreed Labradoodle.
