Breed Population Analyses

The Kennel Club have today made available on their website a population analysis for each of the Kennel Club registered breeds.

These reports comprise an analysis of pedigree information held by the Kennel Club over the period 1980-2014 for each breed to determine the rate of loss of genetic diversity within each breed. The reports aim to be a useful resource in the management of the genetic diversity of breeds in order to maintain a good balance between inbreeding and genetic selection.
