Required & Recommended tests
The Breed Council makes recommendations to the KC for tests that should be "Required" or "Recommended" within their Assured Breeder Scheme (ABS). Breed Club members are also expected to follow these principles in order to comply with our Code of Ethics. Other tests are recommended by the Breed Council but are not yet within the ABS.
