selection

Confirmation of stud-book entry


 

The examination of confirmation aims to decide whether the morphology of the dog is true to the type of his breed, to check that the dog is well tempered (neither aggressive nor shy), to verify that he is not a carrier of any among the eliminatory faults mentioned in the list of points of non confirmation of his breed and that consequently he may be allowed to breed.
(S.C.C. Cynophilie française, n° 70, 2ème trim. 1990, p. 9)

Having said this, if « the examination of confirmation aims to secure the maintaining of a breed and, if possible, to improve it, it is definitely not – to be quite accurate – a selection test.
Its function is to delimit the lower threshold not to cross, and not the optimum desirable threshold ».
(SURGET: La sélection et son organisation, dans R.O.C.F. n° 52, 4ème trim. 1985).

 

Beauty – Health – Temperament


 

Opinions diverge as to know in which order we should rank these three criterion, but everybody agrees that they are the three requirements we must aim at if we want to practice selection. Hence the necessity of a reasoned choice of the best breeding stock in order to improve the breed.

ATTENTION – Les cotations ne sont pas automatiques !

Pour la cotation 2 points il faut envoyer copie des documents suivants : formulaire de confirmation, slip de jugement sur lequel doit figurer le lieu et la date de l’exposition où le chien a obtenu un EXC, diplôme du Test de caractère ou du TAN, ou BPV ou CSAU.

Pour les cotations 3 et 4 points : copie du slip de jugement de la « Spéciale », du Ch. de France ou de la N.E. avec mention du lieu et de la date de l‘exposition, du diplôme de Test de caractère ou TAN, ou BPV ou CSAU.
Cela vaut pour une première cotation tout comme le passage dans une catégorie supérieure.
Pour la cotation 4 le dépistage CMD (indemne) valide est obligatoire.

Pour les cotations 5 et 6 points les propriétaires des étalons et lices concernés doivent fournir les justificatifs nécessaires.

Dépistage CMD : la validité du test est de 18 mois. Pour conserver une cotation 4, 5 ou 6, le propriétaire doit donc renvoyer tous les 18 mois un nouveau résultat de dépistage, faute de quoi le chien sera rétrogradé à la cotation 3.
Au-delà de l’âge de 7 ans, le renouvellement du dépistage n’est plus obligatoire.
Les Deerhounds sont exemptés du dépistage.

* Les demandes de cotations sont à envoyer, avec les justificatifs nécessaires (photocopies) à Gwénaëlle BERNARD Les Carrières 50800 BESLON.

Les cotations seront homologuées par le club après vérification, puis transmises à la S.C.C.
