9.8 Fedco 12-20 Agenda
No matters were raised.
10.1 Proposal for Online Survey
The following proposal was received from Mrs Tania Davey-Smith (KUSA Member 1018914)
I previously wrote to you regarding the poor situation that I encountered when recently visiting two Vizsla breeders. I then made a suggestion that KUSA creates an online survey accessible from the home page of your website, to allow puppy buyers to evaluate breeders, based on their visits to them. You have not yet responded in this regard.
I have since discussed this concept with a few puppy buyers, who have all been in agreement that this would be a very good idea and way to provide feedback, which could allow KUSA to take action, e.g. send inspectors to assess the situation, unannounced of course.
One such a buyer whom I spoke with yesterday, had also visited one of the two breeders in question, and told me how shocked he was that a puppy mill would exist in the name of a KUSA registered breeder. He proceeded to buy a puppy from this so-called "breeder" in an attempt to "rescue" the pup from the environment.
An online survey will provide KUSA with ongoing feedback, and will over time go a long way towards eradicating puppy mills and farming.
Such a survey should be developed collectively by breeders and KUSA representatives. It should NOT be unilaterally done by KUSA.
Please give this serious consideration and please can this be tabled at your next relevant meetings. I look forward to receiving formal feedback on this request.
For consideration and discussion.
After discussion it was agreed that various possibilities are to be explored regarding this request.
10.2 Request for reinstatement and transfer of ownership of Vondi Who Dares Wins at Braganza
