The GSBC is made up of 3 representatives from each of the 4 UK based Breed Clubs.Their job is to represent the views of those clubs thus bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge together. This enables the breed to speak with one voice to the Kennel Club and to all members on significant issues.
Health matters are a particular area of interest.
The Breed Council also draws up the Judging Lists
It does not have a separate membership from the Breed Clubs and it does not raise/ hold funds other than enough to cover expenses for meetings and administration.
Matters for the breed Council must come through one of the member clubs.
The Gordon Setter Breed Council
The next AGM of the Gordon Setter Breed Council will be held in 2019
Kennel Club Breeds Liaison Council
Every breed is represented by one member on this body.
KCBLC meets twice a year and offers an opportunity for the breed to bring matters to the direct attention of the Kennel Club. Often these will be in areas which also affect other breeds
For instance, we asked for the issue of dogs with shortened tails for health reasons not being allowed to exhibit at shows which charged admission to be discussed and addressed.
Elaine Roberts is the current GSA KCBLC representative .
