Petition Calls for an End to Controversial Dog Weighing Practice

In January 2007, the UK Kennel Club agreed that the mandatory weighing of miniature dachshunds should cease “as soon as possible” – a decision taken to “remove the perception in the minds of many people that some dogs are deprived of food and/or water prior to competition, in order to meet the maximum weight requirement for Miniatures as outlined in the Dachshund breed standard.” The Kennel Club also ruled that dogs could no longer be weighed at Crufts, its flagship show. However, it continued to allow the dachshund breed clubs to weigh dogs at other shows.
