However, the board recently found that two offenses have been committed at a nest.
1. The shortage of puppies being born to each other with the same bitch (the 12-month rule. Art. 3.5 of the VFR)
2. Handing over the puppies to the buyer too early (the minimum 7 week period. Art. 8.2 of the VFR)
Both violations are also contrary to the Animal Welfare Act.
As a result, the board considers both violations to be so serious that, in accordance with the Articles of Association & the House Regulations, it has imposed a penalty of 6 months for the second violation. The first offense is a matter for the Raad van Beheer,
She will then determine the sanction imposed on the breeder for this.
The board does not like to make such decisions, but if it has to, it does not run away from it. After all, the well-being of the dog is paramount!
