Improving breed health using the Karlton Index framework
The framework is designed to give breed communities a structure to help organise your health activities. The scoring (out of 100) gives you a clear sense of what you are doing well and also pinpoints the areas you could focus on next, to ensure you keep moving in a positive direction.
First, find your current position on the Index by noting the score allocated to your breed for each section in the current report (click here to view the 2013 report) and then click on the Tabs, above, to find the corresponding sections, together with some pointers towards next steps.
NB: The Kennel Club provides a wealth of support material to help you at every stage in the process, go to http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/health/
IMPACT: This section of The Karlton Index has been reviewed and for 2016, differs from previous versions. Guidance for this will be updated once the scores have been collated and we can assess the implications for the trends we find.
